Making Current Events Accessible to Kids Many parents and teachers grew up doing dull current-events reports based on static text found in newspapers. Today's students, who are immersed in a world in which news can be updated by anyone 24/7, need a different skill set to read and understand the world. Classroom current-events time provides the perfect opportunity to practice critical-thinking and text-analysis skills using timely and real-world sources. There should be nothing dull about current events today. Everyday Interest In my classroom, Fridays are dedicated to current events, but that doesn’t mean the world waits. I model frequent reading of news articles for my students as well as provide a variety of great resources for developing everyday opportunities for students to read and think about global news.

Alice.org Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a freely available teaching tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games. In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles) populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate the objects. In Alice's interactive interface, students drag and drop graphic tiles to create a program, where the instructions correspond to standard statements in a production oriented programming language, such as Java, C++, and C#. Alice allows students to immediately see how their animation programs run, enabling them to easily understand the relationship between the programming statements and the behavior of objects in their animation.

Resources for Primary Source Documents Primary sources are resources that were first-hand created in a given period of time and never undergone any kind of editing or distortion.

Timelines can be created from photos or flash cards which the student can then use to play prediction games. Ideas for timelines include the chronicling of a family members or pets life, the history of an event, or plot events from a novel.

Virtual Tours Why Virtual Tours Excerpt from Best Ideas for Teaching with Technology: A Practical Guide for Teachers, by Teachers ... Field trips are excellent ways to immerse students in historical evidence by visiting museums, historical sites, author residences, or government buildings. Field trips are also expensive, complicated to organize, and draw students away from their other class responsibilities. Fortunately, if you cannot visit an important site in person, you can often visit the site virtually on the Web. While some online virtual tours consist of static two-dimensional images and text, others contain engaging three-dimensional animations and simulations, panoramic video, and more. mshesso:Grammar AA = Avoid Anthropomorphism Do not assign uniquely human qualities to inanimate objects. For instance, results do not think and the literature does not believe.
