This post provides 20 'actions' that you might want to take to create a more successful classroom. Be aware that while some will take less than 10 minutes, others may take an hour or more. Four of the 'actions' are below.

* Set your classroom up in an "active learning" format.

* Set up a system for make-up work.

* Create a list of "question words" that help you with effective questioning.

* Create a risk reward procedure to encourage kids to not fear mistakes.

Yesterday I posted the top choices from the American Association of School LIbrarians (AASL) on the best apps for 2014. Today they listed the top websites in the following categories:

* Media Sharing

* Digital Stories

* Manage & Organize

* Social Networking & Communication

* Content Resources

* Curriculum Collaboration

As you review the websites you will find one or more standards that are addressed by the websites.

Although I know many of the websites, there are some that are new to me that I look forward to exploring. Below are several that I have used and really like, or are ones I have checked out and will be using in the future.

Are you looking for new tools and want ideas on how to use them as well as examples and links to learn more about the tool. Check out Remix-t, a site from the University of Notre Dame, that is chock full of great ideas and resources. Although this site is geared to college teachers the resources and examples will provide you with great ideas and you will be able to modify them for your classroom. You will find in under Content Resources.

Mixed Ink is a new site to me. It allows you to create a group of students who will write together. They may comment and evaluate the submissions and each students' writing will show up in a different color. This looks like  a great site, esp. for schools that are not using Google apps.

There are many more that I will be exploring. Do you have a favorite website? Share them in the comment section and let us know why it is a favorite of yours.

Are you looking for an extensive list of reading response questions? Look no further. This post provides an in-depth list of questions, as well as suggestions on how the author used them in her classroom.

Along with a lengthy list of great questions there is also a section called Test Readiness Terms that provides additional questions in the areas of Analyze, Compare, Contrast, Define, Describe, Differentiate, Discuss, Evaluate, Explain, Identify, Interpret, List, Main Idea, and Outline.

Below are five randomly chosen questions.

— Describe the most important event. Give at least three reasons why you think it is the most important event.
— Draw an interpretation of the passage – may be a picture, symbols, graphic organizer.

— If you could change what you’re reading, how would you change it?

— Is the setting described well enough that can put a picture of it in your mind? Why or why not?

— What have you found boring about what you’ve been reading? What made it boring? If you were the author, what would you do to make it more interesting?

If you have students using writing journals it is worth your time to check out this list. You may not want to use all of the questions (the author notes that a printed list ran to 10 pages) so take the time to review and select ones that will work with your students.

When looking at this map there area few things that stick out to me and not just the colors. Fistly what I founf interesting was that South America in relation to where we live is quite different. For example, The US economic status is High Class at $12195 or more for most of the East and West Coast and then it is dull in the middle. These facts compared to South America where they are mostly upper middle class at around $3946-12185 and a portion of them are the lower middle class which rings in at around $886-3945.

 On map 33, it shows the religious borders map of the different religions that are occupying certain areas of the Middle East. The area of Baghdad and east is mostly Shiite Islam and west of Baghdad is Sunni Islam. What I found to be most interesting is that even though Jerusalem is surrounded by many different religions they still celebrate Judaism. They are religiously protected by its borders. There is some sign of Sunni Islam being practices within their borders but it is mostly dominated by Judaism.
