Thanks for the link! I will be using these techniques as I continue to build my German vocabulary!
Jacob Broadhead's curator insight, November 7, 2014 5:17 PM

Great idea for expanding vocabulary and in this case adjectives. Shows relationships in an organized way.

Smith_Lin's curator insight, February 27, 2015 3:34 PM

Great for kids with small imaginations but not sure if they all work. Context is important

Free Technology for Teachers: Keith Hughes Explains How to Make Flipped Classroom Videos

Free Technology for Teachers: Keith Hughes Explains How to Make Flipped Classroom Videos | Writing and research | Scoop.it

Keith Hughes makes fantastic flipped history classroom videos. I've featured lots of his work in the past because it is a great model of what a video lesson should be. Today, Keith released a video in which he explains how he does it and how you can do it too. In I Flip, You Flip, We All Flip Keith Hughes explains the concept behind flipped classrooms, equipment for creating great videos, and how to use iMovie to produce and publish your flipped lessons. If you have any interest in making flipped classroom videos, I highly recommend taking 25 minutes to watch I Flip, You Flip, We All Flip.

3 Myths That Hold Your Best Writing Back

3 Myths That Hold Your Best Writing Back | Writing and research | Scoop.it
The odds are if you write in public you want people to read your work. Seems like a reasonable assumption. I mean, if we don’t care if anyone’s reading our work, then we should stick to personal journals that we keep hidden under our pillows.

Myth #1

======

It’s okay to just write for myself. (Is it? Really?)

 

Myth #2

=======
What works for others should work for me. (Why would you copy others?)

 

Myth #3

======
Always give readers what they want. (Which readers?)

 

Always strive to keep improving. Take a peek at what other successful writers are writing, but don't copy. Your best work is ahead of you. Just don't give up!

I've often told my writing students that they should never underestimate the power of a picture book, even, or maybe especially wordless picture books. Hmmm. I feel a blog post coming on. Stay tuned.
