Each week, I publish a post or two containing three or four particularly useful resources on classroom instruction, and you can see them all here.
You might also be interested in The Best Articles (& Blog Posts) Offering Practical Advice & Resources To Teachers In 2016 – Part Two and The Best Resources On Class Instruction In 2016 – Part Two.
Here are this week’s picks:
‘Hidden Figures’ Curriculum Brings Film’s Lessons To The Classroom is from The Huffington Post. The curriculum is free.
What to Do on Lame Duck School Days is from Jennifer Gonzalez. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Finish The School Year Strong.
ON SCAFFOLDED DESCRIPTIVE WRITING OPENINGS is from The Learning Profession. I’m adding it to The Best Scaffolded Writing Frames For Students.
Echoes of History? A Lesson Plan About the Recent Rise of Europe’s Far-Right Parties is an excellent lesson plan from The New York Times Learning Network that my student teacher and I are modifying for our World History ELL class.
