Having students be able to read a map

Sharing Information through Social Media

Pinterest is turning out to be a more useful site that I originally thought it would. I see teachers posting on their boards all different ideas and lessons plans. This is great for a teacher like me that is just starting in the profession.

Cool Tools for School

Cool Tools for School is a great website to go to when your running out of ideas for lecture. I found many different styles of teaching and activities that I can use that will reach all my students. I know that I will use this website when I become a teacher when I am running low on ideas for lecture.

Quick Maps

Quick Maps is a great idea to use for students to understand how long people had to travel out west and what the terrain might look like. This will allow me and students to explore the possibility of different routes that were taken out to the West in early America.


Fotopedia is website that displays many images around the world. This will be a great site to get pictures off for lecture. For example, when I am teaching the Middle East in class, I can pull up pictures from the Middle East and show the students exactly what I am talking about.
