So proud! My student's TED-style talk was featured on the TED Ed Club Blog. Go Emma!
One of the main goals of TED-Ed Clubs has always been to provide a platform for student ideas. In this column, we do just that by highlighting nominated videos from schools participating in TED-Ed ...

Who knew writing a thesis could be so much fun?!?
Every English teacher has experienced the frustration of introducing a writing skill, like how to write a thesis statement, over and over again without it "sticking." Three years ago, I began "flipping" my writing instruction, so students watch videos on my YouTube channel, take Cornell notes, then

My 200th blog post...
I'm a huge fan of TED Talks! TED presenters weave together stories and information skillfully to engage their audiences. They have clearly rehearsed their material, yet their delivery is natural and, as a result, their ideas are compelling. I want my students to feel confident articulating their

I love my PLN for passing on great ideas! My students created original theme memes today. So fun!
Yesterday, I stumbled onto the KQED YouTube video about making memes. I love memes! A meme is a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc. that is copied–often with slight variations–and spread rapidly by Internet users. I decided I wanted to find a way to incorporate memes in my English class.

RSA animation is essentially whiteboard animation. The artist draws pictures on a whiteboard to depict concepts using a combination of words and pictures. If you've never seen an RSA animation, I'd suggest watching "Changing Educational Paradigms" which took a section of Ken Robinson's TED Talk and

When students share their ideas and work online, they are taking a risk. As soon as they share a YouTube video or post a comment online, they open themselves up to possible ridicule and unkind remarks. I wish I could protect my students from the Internet, but I can't. What I can do is help them to

Best final exam ever!
As finals approached this year, I had a desire to do something different. In the past I've had students write a timed five-paragraph argument essay about whether Montag, from Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, is a conformist or nonconformist. My students had already written four essays this year, so I

I'm writing a series of blogs titled "Get Common Core Ready" that are inspired by my next book "Creatively Teach the Common Core Literacy Standards with Technology" (to be published by Corwin in spring 2015). This first blog will focus on helping students to transfer their pen and paper annotation skills to the online space.
