Famous Pirates and their Flags

During the Golden Age of Piracy (roughly from 1700-1725), dozens of pirates roamed the seas of the world, preying on merchant shipping and coastal towns.  We're doing pirates now, so this should help.

20 Web 2.0 Sites that do not Require Student Email Accounts

20 Web 2.0 Sites that do not Require Student Email Accounts | ks3humanities | Scoop.it

As we look at Web 2.0 tools we must consider if we can use them with our students in the school. Many school have policies about social media websites, but one we often run into is the need for students to have email addresses. This list provides 20 Web 2.0 sites that do require a student email address to create an account. There is one additional piece of information that we also need to check and that it the policy of the site for students under the age of 13. I have not checked all these sites to see if students under 13 are allowed and the post does not mention this fact...so if you work with students under 13 make sure to check their policy. 

The list is wide-ranging from sources that are great for finding educational resouces to bookmarking/annoting websites to creating animated videos and more. Some may require a subscription for educators.

I have used some and recommend you try out first.

the potential of this site is amazing between the interactive learning system and the correlation between the timeline and location. If the human geography class is anything like this i can't wait for it!

6 Rules for a Great Story from Barnaby Conrad and Snoopy

Maria Popova's Brain Pickings has once again shared information about rules for great stories, this time from Barnaby  Conrad (author). He responded to the cartoon strip above with six rules. The first is "Try to pick the most intriguing place in your piece to begin."

You may see the other five at her website, and there are also links to advice on writing by Kurt Vonnegut, David Olgilvy, Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac and John Steinbeck.

I had a quick look and some good stuff here.
