Updates On Two Important Learning Resources: NY Times Learning Network & “Science In School”

scienceinschool

I regularly blog about the great resources at The New York Times Learning Network, and not just because I write a weekly post for them about teaching English Language Learners :)

They just published 15 Ways to Use The Learning Network This School Year, and it gives an excellent overview of all the useful materials they’ll produce over the next ten months.

Another useful resource, which I haven’t blogged about previously, is called Science In School. It’s subtitled “The European Journal For Science Teachers” but it seems to me (who, admittedly, knows little about science) to have helpful materials for science teachers everywhere…

“I Could Do That” Is A Great Video For Anyone Interested In Close Reading (& For TOK Teachers)

John Spencer just shared this great video on Twitter.

It’s from PBS, and is a great one for IB Theory of Knowledge teachers when exploring the arts.

Even more interesting – to me, at least – is how it can applied to an understanding of “close reading.” I suspect David Coleman, the primary author of the Common Core Standards, would not necessarily agree with what the video says about the critical importance of context…
