Shakespeare Made Easy and Fun: Using Memes to Connect with the Text
Tracee Orman's insight:

Last spring I compiled all my funny memes for teaching Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Julius Caesar into a Quicktime movie. Students loved it and it helped them understand the play. It prompted many discussions and allowed them to make so many connections to the text. Even my Shakespeare-hating reluctant readers got into it. Gotta love it when kids get excited about Shakespeare!

How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards

How to Design Projects Around Common Core Standards | Common Core Resources for ELA Teachers | Scoop.it

Heather Wolpert-Gawron writes: "Call me bass-ackwards, but I don't design projects around the Common Core Standards. I design projects based on what I believe are engaging topics that encourage my curriculum. Having said that, I don't neglect them either. In fact, by the end of my design process, I would say that I've become rather intimate with the series of standards I'm trying to hit." (emphasis added)

Mary Clark's curator insight, June 20, 1:33 PM

Heather's posts about PBL and/or Common Core are always worth reading! This is an article that should be shared throughout your school. 

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, July 8, 11:29 AM

Time for teachers to have a little time off and to put some planning time in on next year's projects. I like Heather's approach of finding engaging topics first, then incorporate the standards as they best work in.

You don't have to be a Core teacher to use.
