How to Teach a Novel: Squidoo

How to Teach a Novel: Squidoo | Middle School Teacher | Scoop.it

How can a teacher best approach the teaching of a novel? This lens will break it down step by step, from the abstract notion of "What's worth teaching in this novel?" to the concrete concerns of "How will students be held accountable for their understanding of this book? In what ways will I assess progress? How will students demonstrate their understandings of story theme, character development, plot, vocabulary, and other story elements?" This lens will provide sample materials, Internet resources, and ideas which have proven successful in many classrooms.

Librarian@HOPE's insight:

Appropriate for grades 3 and up.  Companion site to How to Teach a Novel.

The eyeballing game

Librarian@HOPE's insight:

An interactive visual estimation game. In the Eyeballing Game players are presented with a drawing or a line segment, angle, or shape. Players are then given a task like "find the spot equidistant to all sides" or "bisect the angle."

Quora - Instructify

Quora - Instructify | Middle School Teacher | Scoop.it

Quora is a question-and-answer website where questions are created, answered, edited and organized by its community of users. Users may log in by creating an account or using their Google, Facebook, or Twitter account. After logging in the user is given interest areas from which to choose to create a personalized question and answer feed.  Education is one of these choices, along with literature, science, and many others. This site is more appropriate for teacher use than student use because it s anyone can create or answer a question, which would not allow teachers control over students’ online interactions. Teachers can put a question on the feed and learn as others respond, or look through the feed to see what topics are trending within their subject area. It is a great way to find fun, fascinating information or connect with other teachers.
