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.
Of course, this is a crazy time for “classroom” instruction….
You might also be interested in THE BEST RESOURCES ON INSTRUCTION IN 2020 – PART TWO.
Here are this week’s picks:
Ineffective ‘learning styles’ theory persists in education is from Science Daily. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Issue Of “Learning Styles.”
Tips for Teachers: Developing Instructional Materials about American Indians is from American Indians in Children Literature. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For International Day Of The World’s Indigenous People and to New & Revised: Resources To Help Us Predominantly White Teachers To Reflect On How Race Influences Our Work.
One of the girls in my 9 year old’s class just said “My favorite author, other than myself, is Judy Blume,” and that’s the energy I want to see from all women writers going forward
