Online Resources to Try this School Year

We wanted to share some great resources from coolcatteacher.blogspot.com. Take a look at these select lesson plans, compiled and commented on by Georgia teacher Vicki Davis:

What did you learn online today?

Resources for Understanding the Common Core State Standards | Edutopia  Edutopia’s guide to websites, organizations articles relating to the common core. I do think they are missing “Share My Lesson” from the AFT and TES, but this may have been written before that site launched. A great overview.
Film as a Great Motivator | Edutopia  The right film and the right moment can create mood and meaning. Today in the Olympics, the swim coach was talking about how he had shown a clip from Saving Private Ryan and team members took on a different air of brotherhood and working together as a team. Film can be a great motivator and teacher in the classroom when well done. It can also be a boring “beuller” moment if not picked well. I like how this blog post deconstructs the use of video and how it can be used effectively in the classroom. I think it is a great read for all teachers.
Pinterest- Search results for classroom door-  Cute ideas for classroom doors.
Wikis in the Classroom-  A lovely website about wikis and the use in the classroom.
