For Email Subscribers To This Blog

Because of technical glitches that have now been fixed, email subscribers did not receive yesterday’s posts from this blog.

You might want to visit the site itself to see the posts you missed….

 

Hindu Festival Of Holi

The Festival of Holi begins on March 19th this year. To quote from the UPI, “Holi, also called the Festival of Colors, is a popular Hindu spring festival observed in India, and many other countries around the world. Holi, is celebrated by people throwing colored powder and colored water at each other.”

I’ve just revised The Best Sites To Learn About The Hindu Festival Of Holi.

 


“Top Ten Tips for Assessing Project-Based Learning”

Top Ten Tips for Assessing Project-Based Learning is a new great — and free — classroom guide from Edutopia.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Cooperative Learning Ideas.

 

Today’s Japan Update

Here are the newest additions to Part Two of my “The Best…” list on the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami (you can see Part One here):

Japan earthquake and tsunami: most dramatic videos is from The Telegraph.

A Chart to Better Understand Radiation Levels and Their Effects on People is from GOOD Magazine.

Japan Earthquake: The Struggle to Recover are photos from The Atlantic.

Crisis in Japan: Understanding Nuclear Energy and Reactors is from The New York Times Learning Network.

Status of the Nuclear Reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi Power Plant is an interactive from The New York Times.

Japan: Continuing crisis is from The Big Picture.

MSNBC has some pretty amazing panoramic images of the disaster.

Radiation at Fukushima Daiichi is a graphic from The New York Times.

Video: Japan’s Natural and Nuclear Disasters is from The New York Times.

 

Students Annotating Text — Part Two

Last year, I wrote a post titled Students Annotating Text. In it, I shared how and why we push students so hard to annotate text — both on paper and on the web — and shared their responses to my asking them what they thought the purpose behind it was.

I also added that post to My Best Posts On Books: Why They’re Important & How To Help Students Select, Read, Write & Discuss Them.

The New York Times Learning Network recently shared a lesson plan called Practicing Useful Annotation Strategies. It has some useful ideas and links, particularly to a New York Times article called ‘What I Really Want Is Someone Rolling Around in the Text.’

I plan on adapting some of the materials for an expanded lesson on text annotation for our students, and will post about it when it’s done.

 

World Water Day Is March 22nd

I’ve recently revised The Best Resources For Teaching & Learning About World Water Day.

Additional suggestions are always welcome.
