"CommonCore does not abandon literature,but does require that teachers work more deliberately w/ informational texts." | Informational reading | Scoop.it

You have probably heard some buzz about incorporating a lot more non-fiction in your classroom. Rest assured that the Common Core does not abandon literature, but it does require that teachers work more deliberately with informational texts. This Q/A article will help you to make sense of this shift and provide you with some practical tips and resources to get started.

The Greening of the Language Arts: Considering Sustainability ... | Informational reading | Scoop.it
In my experience as a middle school Language Arts teacher, and now a teacher educator, I often come to the conclusion that my students learn best from, a) studying topics that are of interest to them, and, b) from one another.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, February 22, 2013 8:00 AM

Welcome to ImageQuiz, a website that uses the power of images (1 image = 1000 words) to help you learn. The website contains a variety of quizzes, tagged according to topic: just select a topic that interests you from the sidebar, then select a quiz. Can't think of one? Do a random quiz.

how the quizzes work

Each quiz will prompt you to click on a particular part of the image that you will hopefully recognise. For example, the image might be a map of the world and the prompt asks you to click on Brazil (easy, it's the biggest country in South America!).

making your own

The best thing about ImageQuiz is that you can make your own: to share with friends; to help you with your studies; or just for fun. Simply click create new, upload an image, and draw on outlines around the elements you want users to click on.
