Newsela takes articles and current events from its partner news sources and modifies them so that students can read them more easily (options for different lexile levels). There also opportunities to assign to students and add questions.

Classcraft is a website that teachers can use to "gamify" their classroom content and behavior expectations. The design of the website is based on concepts from fantasy games and literature with character classes such as mage, healer, and warrior. Students get to choose which type of character they will have and what that character looks like. They are rewarded by their teacher for making progress or demonstrating good behavior with experience points (XP).

I am looking for new ways that blended learning can be used to teach French so I decided to create a blended unit on French weather. This unit is designed to be used in a beginner level French course to introduce vocabulary and to draw comparisons between the weather of France and other countries.

This unit will be designed to be taught concurrently with other units throughout the beginning (1st quarter and beginning of 2nd quarter) of the school year. It will focus on teaching grammar concepts in context. Front-loading grammar instruction has been a focus of the district ELA department.

Students will investigate the Silk Road to learn about the beginnings of globalization, and study the process of globalization, global trade, comparative advantage, design, sourcing, manufacturing and distribution. Students will consider if globalization results in more positive or negative contributions to our communities and society as whole.

This is a unit I designed for an argumentative essay. I teach this unit every year but wanted to enhance it with more technology. When using this unit, teachers take on a facilitating role while students take on the task with feedback from peers. Students will be able to move through each step of the writing process at their own pace as well.
