Linda Dougherty's curator insight, February 2, 10:52 PM

"Bad Romance: Women’s Suffrage is a parody music video paying homage to Alice Paul and the generations of brave women who joined together in the fight to pass the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote in 1920."  Follow the links to complete teacher resources for teaching the 19th Amendment. Great resource not only for social studies classes but use to explore media literacy.

Tapping Into the Potential of Games and Uninhibited Play for Learning

Tapping Into the Potential of Games and Uninhibited Play for Learning | School Library | Scoop.it
In the classroom, fiero -- excitement that gamers experience when they overcome challenges -- makes students see that they're empowered players in their own education. They're released into the exciting adventure that learning can be. Without the intrinsic motivating power of fiero, however, gamification becomes nothing more than semantic spin: a language game in which a letter-based grade system is replaced by a points-based reward system. In these cases, gamification does little to address the shortcomings of a system that relies on high-stakes testing.
