365 things to make you go "Hmmm..." | Thinking skills resources | Wicked Good Technology | Scoop.it

"Sparky Teaching believes teaching is about much more than ticking off lesson objectives and setting pupil targets... These clearly have their place, but so often creativity is planned out of lessons and in getting pupils to jump through the hoops we've made, something small but important has got a little lost along the way."

How To Google Search By Reading Level

How To Google Search By Reading Level | Wicked Good Technology | Scoop.it

"Using Google to look for text is simple enough, but not until recently did I realize you could use it to search by reading level. And it typical Google fashion, it’s slightly more convoluted a process than it needs to be, but is otherwise dead simple.

 

The screen shots below walk you through the process–well, the two steps. This post comes on the heels of our recent post on digital tools that can be used to evaluate text complexity."

While reading age / lexile / level should not dictate what a learner should be 'allowed' to read, nevertheless audience and reading level are particularly important selection criteria for those building school library collections. Consider reading age as one tool to assist in matching resources to users - in many cases it is secondary to user interest.

Whether it comes to the beautiful visuals displayed via the felt board app or a strong focus on the writing process via the storytelling arch, this "scoop" offers not only a terrific list of classroom apps, but also examples of real student work.  Most of the apps via iTunes or elsewhere are not free, but the costs incurred are often much lower than traditional instructional methods.  Highly recommended, esp. for elementary teachers.
