Edmodo Scavenger Hunt Video Playlist I finally decided to do something that I been putting off for too long - finishing my scavenger hunt videos (I only had three left to record, and it took me less than 5 minutes - shesh) and adding the last 8 mini-videos to my MentorMob playlist. So I did it today! I decided to do an edmodo scavenger hunt because some of my students will be familiar with edmodo (because I had them last year and we used it) and some of my students have most likely never heard of it (Some of my students last year did talk about it to students who weren't in my class). I decided to break the scavenger hunt into steps (18 to be exact) and include a checklist on paper so my students could check it off as they go and get a visual of their progress. Most of the videos are under 2 minutes (Step 12 or 13- can't remember which - is 5 minutes). Create your own Playlist on MentorMob! On a side note, I love mentor mob. I'm going to be working on Unit C - Pronouns and continuing to create my flipped class units.
American History Why Study History? - American Historical Association By Peter N. Stearns People live in the present. They plan for and worry about the future. Any subject of study needs justification: its advocates must explain why it is worth attention. Historians do not perform heart transplants, improve highway design, or arrest criminals. In the past history has been justified for reasons we would no longer accept. History should be studied because it is essential to individuals and to society, and because it harbors beauty. History Helps Us Understand People and Societies In the first place, history offers a storehouse of information about how people and societies behave. History Helps Us Understand Change and How the Society We Live in Came to Be The second reason history is inescapable as a subject of serious study follows closely on the first. The importance of history in explaining and understanding change in human behavior is no mere abstraction. History, then, provides the only extensive materials available to study the human condition.

Supreme Court Says Police Can Take DNA Samples WASHINGTON — The police may take DNA samples from people arrested in connection with serious crimes, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday in a 5-to-4 decision. The federal government and 28 states authorize the practice, and law enforcement officials say it is a valuable tool for investigating unsolved crimes. But the court said the testing was justified by a different reason: to identify the suspect in custody. “When officers make an arrest supported by probable cause to hold for a serious offense and they bring the suspect to the station to be detained in custody,” Justice Anthony M. Justice Antonin Scalia summarized his dissent from the bench, a rare move signaling deep disagreement. But the Fourth Amendment forbids searches without reasonable suspicion to gather evidence about an unrelated crime, he said, a point the majority did not dispute. The case featured an alignment of justices that scrambled the usual ideological alliances. Monday’s ruling, Maryland v.
Wikis These four friends are going on a camping trip. They need to bring the right supplies because they're backpacking. The group needs to plan and plan well, so coordination is key. They're all computer users, so they start planning with an email. It's start with one, but then becomes a barrage. Email is not good at coordinating and organizing a group's input. The important information is scattered across everyone's inbox. There is a better way. Most wikis work the same. The buttons are really important. Here are our camping friends and here is a wiki website. Once you're finished editing, you click save and the document becomes a webpage once again, and is ready for the next person to edit it - easy! Edit - Write - and Save. Mary signs up for a wiki site and then sees the new site for the first time. Now it's John's turn. Henry visits the wiki, clicks edit and he can edit the page. Frank saves the page and realizes something awesome. But wait!

Project Based Learning You remember what it was like in school. IT WAS BORING! You sat in class, memorized as much as you could and tried to pass a test at the end. But is that good enough? These days school can be more interesting and effective by focusing students on work that matters. Most adults live in a world of projects. Let’s take a look at this Project Based World. Claire came out of the project looking like a rock star and she learned a lot about green products. The world needs more Claires. The answer is Project Based Learning or PBL. Here’s what I mean.
