What is it?
Students can also access resources within Discovery Education making it a great place to start if you're looking to integrate technology into a lesson.
SOS - Spotlight on Strategies
Looking for strategies to help enforce comparing and contrasting? How about inferencing and predicting? Check out the Spotlight on Strategies offered by Discovery Education. Here you will find strategies to address a variety of skills you teach in your classroom. You will be able to find a PDF printout with directions as well as a video that show the strategy in action within a classroom. Some of the strategies are good old fashioned teaching and do not require the use of technology, while others are tech-enhanced.
Virtual Field Trips
You will need to be signed into DE to access the link.
Explore places, careers, and concepts beyond the four walls of your classroom without having to leave school. New virtual field trips are being added on a regular basis. You can check out the Events Calendar for upcoming virtual field trips.
It's also a great way to introduce content to your students. Create a board on a given topic and share with your students in DE. Give them time to explore the board and do a think-pair-share activity about what they learned before you start a unit.
