What have you tried?
  • Diigo online research tool
  • Discussion boards
  • Ning sites: for individual classes and an online writing center with
  • Web page
  • ALEC
  • Photostories
  • "Mash-ups" (idea from ISTE) - students make connections between various texts or ideas
  • More lessons and activities that are project based, include choice, and are driven by essential questions (both teacher created and student created)
  • Prezi
  • More group projects and class collaborations that are driven by the students and students are accountable
  • Wikis created by students and managed by them - they must link and make the connections
  • Glogster
  • Presentations that include multimedia


What's working? How do you know?
  • More lessons and activities that are project based, include choice, and are driven by essential questions (both teacher created and student created)
  • Presentations that include multimedia
  • Writing reviser (linked from our online writing center)

We know these are working because kids are coming in to ask questions, and there is less time spent on managing the classroom environment - the students are more likely to come in to class, know the expectations, and make progress on their own.


What will be your next steps?
  • Work collaboratively more and bring other teachers into the loop, working interdisciplinary
  • Advocate for smaller class sizes
