Printing Press The interactive Printing Press is designed to assist students in creating newspapers, brochures, and flyers. Teachers and students can choose from several templates to publish class newspapers, informational brochures, and flyers announcing class events. Text added to the templates can be modified using a simple WYSIWYG editor, which allows students to choose text features, such as font size and color. Documentation for the Printing Press includes instructions for using the tool. Customized versions of the tool, which include additional instructions and more focused choices, are included with some lessons. A basic planning sheet is available to help students gather ideas before working on this interactive tool.
Cube Creator Summarizing information is an important postreading and prewriting activity that helps students synthesize what they have learned. The interactive Cube Creator offers four options: Bio Cube: This option allows students to develop an outline of a person whose biography or autobiography they have just read; it can also be used before students write their own autobiography. Trading Card Creator The Trading Card tool gives students an alternative way to demonstrate their literacy knowledge and skill when writing about popular culture texts or real world examples. This interactive allows students to create their own trading card about a real or fictional person, place, object, event, or abstract concept. These cards are can be used with any type of book students are reading or subjects that they are studying, and make for an excellent prewriting exercise for students who are writing narrative stories and need to consider characters, setting, and plot. Specific prompts guide student through the various types of cards, expanding students' thinking from the basic information and description of the topic to making personal connections to the subject. The save capability gives students a way to work on a draft of their card and come back to it to rework and revise as necessary, and to save their finished product to share with friends and family. back to top
3 Things Silicon Valley Taught Me About School Leadership Posted 12/16/2015 9:24AM | Last Commented 01/19/2016 4:59PM I spent the last four years as a high school principal in San Francisco. Living and working in the City by the Bay gave me a front row seat to how Silicon Valley is redefining modern society. Actividades con Canciones The Dominican Republic holds a very special place in my heart, so I was giddy with excitement while I made this presentation to introduce my high school Spanish 1 students to Dominican culture! Please see the slideshow below (featuring many videos, made in Google drive) and free accompanying activity packet. The activities include a beginning warm-up to activate background knowledge, content & vocabulary comprehension questions, a Venn Diagram to compare/contrast bachata & merengue, analyses of music videos to explore themes of Dominican culture, and a final discussion mini-essay. I´d like to make a brief note about cultural presentations in general. Whenever I teach culture I do make an effort to make it as authentic as possible, but sometimes I find it quite challenging! How can I portray an entire culture in a few class sessions?
8 pro tips for drawing dragons I've always loved dragons. And I've always loved dinosaurs, too. But dragons are not the same as dinosaurs. While I love studying the creatures of this world for clues on how to make a fantastic creature feel like it could exist in it, I think that by making dinosaurs and dragons interchangeable in our work, we're losing integral parts of what have made each one special in history, myth and fantasy. 2015 Student Academy Award Winners Announced While still not known who will receive the gold medal, the three Student Academy Award medalists this year are (l. to r.) “Taking the Plunge,” “An Object at Rest,” and “Soar.” Medalists for the 42nd Student Academy Awards have been chosen — although their specific placements in gold, silver, and bronze won’t be announced until a September 17 awards ceremony in Beverly Hills, California.

The two animated projects in the Alternative category — Chiaroscuro by Chapman University’s Daniel Drummond and Zoe by the School of Visual Arts’s ChiHyun Lee — were the only projects to medal in that category.

ETEREA Swiss Knife 2.0 - Updated January 18, 2014 Update January 26, 2015 • Small Fix — I have included the last version of a script by Gianni Soldati aka Jeegrobot (“shapes_joiner.py”). Copy-paste what Gianni said: “I added just one line but it is important because it reset the cube commmand before launching it. Without this line sometimes the joined shapes is segmented”. Update January 18, 2014 • Small Fix — I have included the last version of a script by Ylaz (“loopslice_wEdgeRef.py”), which works slightly different.
