Each week, I publish a post containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.
Here are this week’s picks:
How to Plan For and Use Quality Questions is from Middleweb. I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles About Asking Good Questions — Help Me Find More.
Evaluating Sources in a ‘Post-Truth’ World: Ideas for Teaching and Learning About Fake News is from The New York Times Learning Network, and is just about the most exhaustive list of teaching ideas and resources you’re going to find on the topic. I’m adding it to The Best Tools & Lessons For Teaching Information Literacy – Help Me Find More.
‘Mysteries at the Museum’ Offers Engaging History Lessons is by Starr Sackstein at Ed Week. She offers some good lesson ideas for how students can use family artifacts, and the stories behind them, in class. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Using “Object Lessons” In History.
Holocaust Group Will Release Classroom Resources for Trump’s First 100 Days is from Ed Week. It’s about lots of free teaching resources from The Shoah Foundation’s 100 Days To Inspire Respect Project.
My First Project Didn’t Get Funded (Thank Goodness) is by Dave Stuart Jr. and provides great advice for Donors Choose funding. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On – & Advice For Using – Donors Choose (Please Share Your Experiences!).
