Teaching & Learning Resources to Remember the Life of MLK

Teaching & Learning Resources to Remember the Life of MLK | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it
“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” This quote epitomizes why I have always admired Martin Luther King, Jr. 

As a pastor, activist, humanitarian and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement, he not only advocated for the equal treatment of our fellow man, but he also supported the fair and humane treatment of animals—a personal passion of mine as a rescuer, adopter, foster and sponsor of shelter and puppy mill dogs.

All You Need is Math, Halloween and a QR Code Reader! | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

One of the coolest and most rewarding aspects of my job is when I get to witness teachers and students interacting with technology in meaningful ways. Today I had the opportunity to get up close and personal with a group of second graders as they completed a Halloween-themed QR code activity to review math skills. This was some pretty awesome stuff, for sure…

Say Cheese for These 7 Free Stock-Photo Sites | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

Whether you promote content that is fresh or seasonal, evergreen or topical, your endeavor will be meaningless if it doesn’t make your readers sizzle and pop with excitement. How do you capture the attention of your audience without crafting content from scratch?

Perhaps all you need is a high-quality photo. Not a bland, lifeless image, but an attention-grabbing picture — one with a story behind it. Maybe you need a series of compelling images if you’re marketing a lengthy content piece.

Research shows that:

Color visuals increase a person’s willingness to go through a content piece by 80%.Posts or articles with images receive 94% more views than posts or articles without images.Understanding of content jumps from 70% to 95% with the integration of images....

6000+ Children's Books Available for Free: Free Technology for Teachers | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

The University of Florida's Digital Collections offers ahuge library of digitized children's books. 

 

All of the children's books in the collection can be read online. Reading the books online could be a bit difficult for some as there is a border with menus surrounding each page of the books. To avoid that, you can print all of the books for free. The printed version does not display anything but the book as it was scanned.

11 Tips for Engaging Parents | Tech Learning

Shelley writes, "One of the best survival lessons I learned as a teacher was to engage parents. At the ISTE2016 conference I shared my tips and resources for engaging parents. Take this summer to create a plan for communicating with parents better. Trust me, if a parent is talking negatively about you at home, then you will have a difficult time getting the child to listen or behave properly in your class. However, if the parent likes you then you have an ally on your side! Engaging parents is a challenge."

Voice gives learners a chance to share their opinions about something they believe in. We adapted the Continuum of Voice chart we used from Students at the Center in our post Learner Voice Demonstrates Commitment to Building Agency. The learning environment changes as you encourage voice and can see learners taking more control of their learning.
