Here are this week’s picks:
Doc Academy offers free video clips from documentaries and related lesson plans. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Offering Free Lesson Plans For Movies.
The Smithsonian has just released “Using Global Thinking Strategies with Latino Content.” Here’s how they describe it:
Teachers looking to foster in their students a broader understanding and appreciation of today’s complex world can use these Learning Lab collections that pair Harvard’s Project Zero Global Thinking Routines with new bilingual Latino-content videos of National Portrait Gallery and Smithsonian American Art Museum curators discussing works in the collection.
Each Learning Lab teaching collection includes additional supporting materials to add dimension, expand the activity, and deepen students’ learning.
What Students Gain by Writing Together is by Jeremy Hyler, and appears in Middleweb. I’m adding it to Best Posts On Writing Instruction.
