22 Dec

Wow – Christmas is already here!!  Everyone I’ve spoken with has made the same comment.  It seems like Christmas comes faster and faster each year.  Having said that, I know that the two week break will do ‘everyone’ a world of good.  Besides the usual celebrations, I’ll be working on my capstone – the end is in sight!!!

So what can I share with you this time around:

For High School English teachers, have a look at this ‘LiveBinder’ that has numerous resources for Shakespearehttp://www.livebinders.com/play/play_or_edit?id=86019.

For those who teach music, check out the following links:

If you are looking for a neat little ‘comic’ book tool, try Make Beliefs Comixhttp://www.makebeliefscomix.com/Comix/.  This is a neat web tool that is very easy for the students to use.  Without a login, you can print off your story.  With a registration,one can save the work for future use.  Have a look, I think you’ll see lots of possibilities!!

For those of you who are looking after Web Awareness, here are a few sites that might be good to have on hand:

For the Social Studies teacher, here is a neat web site that will provide your students with what is happening in current events.  Newseum provides the front cover of over 800 newspapers from all over the world!  Students could see first hand how our top stories compare to the top stories in a different geographic area of the world.  This would make for some interesting discussions I’m sure.  The URL for Newseum is – http://www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/flash/default.asp.  This tip came from ‘theteacherlist.ca’!

Another neat site that might meet some of the objectives in social studies comes from the National Geographichttp://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/visions-of-earth/visions-earth-2011.  The Visions of Earth provide some great images that could also spark some lively discussions!
