This scoop it profile by @Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)  includes many useful blogs and articles that aim to teach in the 21st century. This includes learning with the use of technology. What he refers to as the 'iGeneration' includes many useful updates that can be used for both the students and teachers in the classroom. A few i came across that sparked my interest were a description on how to set up a blog with wordpress for teachers, this can be very useful to me as a student now and also in the future. I enjoy D'Amico's profile as he scoops quite interesting topics.

When curriculum resources are limitless due to the access we have to on-line materials, then the question we ask about those materials become more important. Values Education helps us all to ask the right questions! See some innovative whole school projects at:

A recent discussion on NCTE's Teaching and Learning Forum brought to light the challenge of working with Robert Frost's famous poems among second and third grade students and teachers. Typically unaccustomed with the explication of poetry, there seemed to be some issues with interpretation. Lorriane Best pointed out that teachers should generate questions (and hopefully, students would follow the lead): "Whose bells are shaking?  Who is the owner of the woods?  Who is it that has a house in the village?  Who has promises to keep? Who has miles to go before sleeping?  Answering these questions will likely bring about clearer understanding." And she recommended the site above as one opportunity for teachers to build on their foundation for understanding this poem and poetry in general.

Docs Teach sponsored by National Archives remains my favorite, but the LIFE photos are fantastic and searchable by decade.  All provide valuable links to support Common Core standards.
