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.

Here are this week’s picks:
Read Between the Brushstrokes: Using Visual Art as a Historical Source is from The Smithsonian. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons.
If you are a Theory of Knowledge teachers, this Facebook post sharing good movies for class is great. I’m adding it to The Best Movies For IB Theory Of Knowledge Classes – What Are Your Suggestions?
Narratives of Native Nations: Indigenous Communities in the News is a lesson plan from the Pulitzer Center. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For International Day Of The World’s Indigenous People.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Posts & Articles About Providing Students With Choices:
I created a tic-tac-toe with this info for the Ts I coached at the start of the 19-20 year. Last week, one of these Ts asked me to send it to her. I searched my docs but couldn’t find it, so I recreated it in 15 mins, & emailed it to her. I’m glad I couldn’t find it! #choiceboard pic.twitter.com/2A00ozr4o2

I’m adding this tweet to The Best Posts On Reading Strategies & Comprehension – Help Me Find More!:
Two reasons why I have kids annotate: 1) Annotating helps kids recognize when their mind is wandering. 2) When students annotate, it helps me see what they know and need. Pointing to an annotation, I can say, “Tell me more about this.” #innervoice
