edutopia Videos can be an effective tool for teaching and learning English (or, for that matter, any academic subject) if used strategically and not as a "babysitting" device. My colleague Katie Hull Sypnieski and I wrote a previous post for Edutopia titled Eight Ways To Use Videos With English-Language Learners that shares instructional strategies for many kinds of clips.

1917 : les révolutions russes | L'espérance est immense. Très vite, 90 millions de citoyens sont mobilisés pour désigner une assemblée constituante lors de l'élection la plus démocratique du monde. Pourtant, le 25 octobre, Lénine et les bolcheviks prennent le palais d'Hiver et instaurent une dictature communiste. Février et Octobre, résonnent dans le siècle, bien au-delà de la Russie, comme les deux forces antagoniques qui, un moment alliées, avaient pu renverser le système séculaire de l’autocratie.

Eight Ways to Use Video With English-Language Learners This blog was co-authored by Katie Hull Sypnieski. This post is excerpted from their new book, The ESL/ELL Teacher's Survival Guide: Ready-to-Use Strategies, Tools, and Activities for Teaching English Language Learners of All Levels. "I like the way you use videos with us -- you get us moving, talking, writing and speaking. The problem is you make us think too much." -- "John," one of our English-Language Learner students We can think of far worse things a student might say to us, and John's comment demonstrates our perspective on using video with English-Language Learners (and, for that matter, with all students) -- research and our experience show that it can be a very effective learning tool, but it has to be used as an active one. Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally. 1.

50 Ways To Integrate Art Into Any Lesson As children, young children, everything meant playing and art. We saw the world as a playground and a canvass. It didn’t matter whether or not we could actually draw. What mattered was the thrill of creating something beautiful. We were all artists. So reminding students that inspiration matters, that art lives and breathes inside every segment of education also means tweaking your lessons a bit. Albert Einstein wrote: The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. Keeping his words in mind, educators everywhere are beginning to work art into education. Math 1. Besides LegoLand embodying a living, breathing demonstration of how Legos inspire children, Lego is making a fortune off the coolest kits around. 2. Stack them. Then eat them.

Universal Design for Learning: An Introduction Universal Design for Learning aims to make modifications in three broad areas that together deliver a programme that will best meet the needs of all learners. In each area the barriers to success are identified and where possible removed or minimised. UDL identifies three essential Neural Networks that combine to produce effective learning, each network as a corresponding place in the learning process. Recognition Networks are the systems that allow us to gather information from our environment and we categorise and make sense of that. This is the ‘what’ of learning, the content and especially how it is presented. Present information and content in different waysDifferentiate the ways that students can express what they knowStimulate interest and motivation for learning Universal Design for Learning is about identifying the needs of all learners and then planning to deliberately meet these needs. Is UDL just making things easier, too easy? No. How can I learn more?

The Thinker Builder: Step In, Step Out: A Strategy for Thinking Deeply About Text You're sitting at your guided reading table, your little group gathered around you, wide-eyed. Or are you the one who's wide-eyed? Sure, you know what you're doing, but maybe right now you're thinking your lesson plan doesn't fit the book like you thought it would. "Boy, I could really use a mini-lesson right now," you think. Here's something to try: I call it the "Step In - Step Out" strategy. Step In! Asking students to "step in" to the story means that students enter the world of the story to analyze the choices the CHARACTERS make. Why did this character make this choice? Step Out! Asking students to "step out" of the story means that students look at the story as a piece of writing, and analyze the choices the AUTHOR makes. Why did the author decide to write this part? Let's get back to your lesson. "Today, boys and girls, I want you to 'step in' to the story while you are reading. "Let's go back to when Sue Ellen went to the park. You tell students,
