In the couple years I've been a member, I've loved the way it's encouraged me to think about my day a little more visually, and enabled me to share those (jazzily filterized) images with friends. Best of all, it's missing all the clutter and noise of Facebook. Just pretty pictures, captions, a handful of hashtags -- and authors. Just like with Pinterest and Tumblr, we've gathered as many YA authors as we could find with Instagram accounts.

Mr And Mrs Vinegar - An English Fairy Tale Mr. and Mrs. Vinegar, a worthy couple, lived in a glass pickle-jar. The house, though small, was snug, and so light that each speck of dust on the furniture showed like a mole-hill; so while Mr. Vinegar tilled his garden with a pickle-fork and grew vegetables for pickling, Mrs.

Using design to hook my students into their project One of the best parts of PBL is the hook lesson (or the project launch, whatever you wanna call it). I know it’s dumb to think that the very first lesson is the best part, but seriously they are as memorable as the concluding celebration of learning but with WAY less anxiety, and therefore honestly more fun. Year 7 are currently working on a project that engages them with the highs and lows of transitioning from childhood to being a teenager. They’re reading the Tim Winton novel Lockie Leonard: Human Torpedo and will be creating a website to help year 6 students in NZ and Perth to support them in their impending transition. Designing a hook lesson for this project was tricky; I wanted them to be engaged in the ideas of the project, but I also wanted them to have fun and think critically. I still can’t remember how I came up with the idea I ended up going with, so if you suggested it to me, you should totally claim it by adding a comment below.

5 Steps to Subject-based Library Classification If your library has not been heavily weeded lately, take this as an opportunity to do so. Books that are not being checked out are taking up valuable real estate in your library and may be keeping students from finding the books they want to read.

For many books, the genre is obvious based on the cover and title. The subject headings on the copyright page (or in your library catalog) are a great tool for determining a book’s genre.

The Book Bug: Share and Share Alike In the past couple of days I have gotten a few, very sweet emails from other teachers and Media Specialists about the ideas and programs I have shared here on The Book Bug. Although I do come up with a great deal of my own programs and ideas for the Media Center, I must admit that a few of the programs I am using in the Media Center are not 100% my original ideas. I have borrowed from some wonderful, more experienced Media Specialists and tweaked their ideas into my version of their original.

The Teacher's Guide To Wikipedia In The Classroom This guide, in the form of 11 questions and answers, helps clarify certain misconceptions about what has come to be one of the most popular and frequently used websites in the world. It also can can be found in its entirety on wikipedia.com. As it is created by Wikipedia–or some arrangement of its volunteer editors–it is undoubtedly biased, but equally informative. Background Concepts such as open source, copyleft, collaborative writing, and volunteer contributions for the public good can be new and unfamiliar ideas to many students. Wikipedia offers an opportunity for educators to explore concepts of public trust that are likely to continue growing in prominence throughout the lives of today’s population of youth.
