Teaching Humanities in the Digital Age

Did you know that Discovery Education has hundreds of speeches with speech guides and transcripts or that we have the ENTIRE Funk & Wagnalls encyclopedia series? That’s not all! If you’re looking for engaging resources on history, literature, music, art, theater, culture, or even primary sources DE is the place to look. In this session, not only will we discover how to find humanities resources in DE, but we’ll also explore how to incorporate them into free web 2.0 tools. Join us as we take the humanities into the digital age.

You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

WordSift - Visualize Text

WordSift - Visualize Text | humanities | Scoop.it
WordSift was created to help teachers manage the demands of vocabulary and academic language in their text materials. We especially hope that this tool is helpful in supporting English Language Learners. We want WordSift to be a useful tool, but we also want it to be fun and visually pleasing. We would be happy if you think of it playfully - as a toy in a linguistic playground that is available to instantly capture and display the vocabulary structure of texts, and to help create an opportunity to talk and explore the richness and wonders of language!
