How to Create a Movie Trailer in iMovie Posted 01/30/2012 at 9:04am | by Steve Paris Announce your forthcoming film in style using iMovie’s trailer factory. Once you’ve created a short film and put all your hard work into it, you need to build anticipation for your family blockbuster. After all, it’s a well-established tradition to create one (or more) trailers to lead the way for your film… although no one’s ever truly explained why they’re called trailers—aren’t trailers supposed to trail, not lead?

Jo Knowles - Live Your Life: A Theme and a Challenge for 2013 Every year, in addition to writing a list of goals and dreams, I also pick a "theme" to help guide me in reaching them. This year's theme came as a gift from Maurice Sendak. A few weeks ago, I came across this very sad interview with Sendak and Terry Gross, illustrated by Christoph Niemann. I won't lie. It depressed me. 5 Tools For Making Custom Timelines Creating custom timelines is an age old school project, especially for history classes (since history is basically a giant timeline, after all!) Way back in the day, when I was a student, I remember drawing out my timelines with colored pencils on pieces of taped together construction paper (to make the line long enough).

How Flocabulary Works Writing is a critical part of the learning process and is supported by research and standards, from Bloom's Taxonomy to the Common Core. When students write their own academic rhymes, they build essential writing skills and master content. Oh, and did we mention it’s fun? Creating a Visual Dictionary on the iPad Pic Collage (free), is one of my favorite apps to use on my iPad. It creates great looking Scrapbook pages of multiple images in no time. Today, as I was planning with our first grade Hebrew teacher, how to upgrade a traditionally taught vocabulary project (creating a dictionary of their weekly vocabulary words in Hebrew), we saw the opportunity to use PicCollage with students in the classroom. (My apologies in advance for the example below is in Spanish and not in Hebrew) Reminder: The idea of a visual dictionary should/is not be confined to the World Language classroom. Think math terms, science vocabulary, library term glossary, Language Arts vocabulary lists, etc.
