northern guilford h.s. media center
Collaborative teaching in the media center this week
Teri Larocque's AP 11 English classes have been in the media center doing a writer's workshop designed by Alicia Mooney-Flynt. Students sit a few to a table and go through a checklist, self- editing and then having peers edit their essays. When they are ready for a teacher conference, they apply a sticky note to their shoulder for the teacher to meet with them. The AP classes are working on 3 essays, finalizing them using this process.
Jessica Lin's Honors English 10 classes have been working on a multi-genre project, reading fiction and non-fiction on a topic of their choice and then working on a research project. It's been fun matching up fiction titles with current events topics. Anna Smith's Honors English 11 students used the iPads last week to access print sources on Points of View on ncwiseowl.org, a great source for pro/con database research, and Destiny to find books and ebooks.
I came across this list from across the pond about the Top 100 Tools for Learning. It's a great list of many apps you know and love and some that you might not be familiar with. If you're looking for some inspiration, take a look and try something fresh. http://c4lpt.co.uk/top100tools/
Great job BOB!
The team broke 100 pts. in the a.m. to make the finals. The afternoon at UNCG was rougher, but all enjoyed a good competition. Thanks to Jessica Lin for co-sponsoring the BOB team.
