Lesson Planning and the Common Core: A Unit Based on TED.com I'm currently prepping my classes for another research unit, this one a blend of Memoir, Advocacy, and Speech Writing.

They blend together; and the Common Core assessments to come recognize the desegregation of writing genres and the need for performance-based assessments. I'm basing this blended unit on TED.com, and the plan is to host a middle school TED-esque conference, combining it with a book drive for our media center. So, in a series of posts, I am going to describe some key steps I'm using with my eighth graders in order to scaffold our way towards our TED conference. On my own website, you can learn about how students chose topics and you can download the worksheet that I used to guide them towards their choice.
A note about Writeboard Hello, We launched Writeboard back in October of 2005 as a stand-alone service. A few years later we integrated Writeboards into Basecamp Classic and Backpack. Today, the vast majority of Writeboards are created inside those two products. As part of refocusing on Basecamp, we’ve decided to retire Writeboard.com. You’ll still be able to create Writeboards inside Basecamp Classic and Backpack, but you’ll no longer be able to start new stand-alone Writeboards here at Writeboard.com.
