I knew there were many inappropriate videos on YouTube but I had no idea that you could make them private. I was not aware of how you should share videos on your blog, and how you should use the embed code. I also did not know that you could share your videos to only certain people and not everyone on YouTube would see them. I’ve learned many new important facts about what to do and what not to do on YouTube from this link.
I had no idea there were so many different YouTube channels for teachers. I had always thought that teachers received all of their information for their lessons from the school board and had to do everything a certain way. I love how you can take things and change it; these channels are giving me many exciting things to try when I become a teacher.
A new survey of teachers shows that most assign readings based on a student's reading level, rather than his grade level.
"Many teachers have not confronted the new text complexity demands of the Common Core. Elementary teachers were particularly wary of assigning books that exceeded their students' current reading levels," say the report's three authors, led by University of Illinois-Chicago literacy expert Timothy Shanahan."
I, as a student, never knew how teachers were picking their books. I agree that now in 2013, teachers are able to choose their books based on the class' reading level and not just on what their supposed to be reading. I'm a senior now and as I was reading this article I did not agree with how books were chosen when I was in middle school and high school. During those times, all the teachers gave the same books to all of their classes; your reading level didn't seem to matter. But as an elementary student, I got to pick whatever book I wanted if it was in the right reading level. I hated a challenge when I was little but when I got to read books that I enjoyed; I got through them without any problems. I hope that schools will start to base their class book assigning more off of what the student's reading levels are, instead of what their "supposed" to assign.
