Big Board Facts Similar to Jeopardy. Put your who, what, when, where questions onto the board and let students try to answer them for points. Also comes in a with answers version that allows the teacher to show the correct answer after the question. The "with Answers" version provides an Answer screen after the question.
Teaching Debate: debate class Many teachers believe that debating is something you do once, or a few times, and then it's done. Or, alternately, they never have debates in class at all - thinking that there's no time (thank you, pacing guide!), or that they don't have the necessary expertise. I'd like to suggest that there's nothing intrinsically valuable about debate. Now, this may come as somewhat of a surprise given that I administer a debating website, direct a gigantic debating program, and have written a bunch of books about debating. When I say that there's nothing intrinsically good about debate, it's just like saying that there's nothing intrinsically good about writing a research paper.

Unsolved Mysteries: Introduction to Research
Edgar Allan Poe is credited with writing the first detective story, The Murders in the Rue Morgue. With this story and several others, he set down the standards for all future writers of detective fiction. The discussion that follows is meant to give a broad overview of the genre and subgenre of detective fiction. This is not meant to be a comprehensive discussion, but rather is presented as a brief introduction to the detective story. Much of the information is credited to Hillary Waugh from his book Guide to Mysteries and Mystery Writing. Most detective stories, but not all, have as the main character an eccentric detective. 95.01.07: It’s A Mystery To Me

Sometimes Learning Hurts: Using Revision Activities As promised, here is the reverse outline and some other activities to help students approach revisions of drafts. Feel free to modify them as you see fit, and contact me with questions and ideas for using these and other revision tools. One of the greatest challenges students face in making meaningful revisions is letting go of the integrity of their drafts. They are loath to make changes – as if their drafts were houses of cards, and any movement might cause them to implode.
We met at the Mitsuwa Food Court last September 30, 2010 for our first ever Creative Writing Session. After a quick review of last week’s meeting, we dove into this meetup’s session—which was about getting the creative juices flowing and about mastering the art of description. The first part of the meetup was about generating/ sparking story ideas, and what to do with these story ideas, once generated. The second part of the meetup was dedicated to various writing activities. Fourth Meetup: Creative Writing Exercises Extravaganza : : The Writing Nut
