Edutopia's group: Bridges: The First Years of Practice


I recommend reading just about everything this website puts out, but their new teacher's group has a few nice little posts specifically geared to us newbies.

If you're involved in any sort of language art-related subject area, you need to check out ReadWriteThink.org which is run by NCTE. It has a ton of wonderful free resources for use.

Hello Everyone, I am a student at the University of Mary Washington. I'm studying English and Secondary Education. I'm still unsure what grade I'd like to focus on, maybe 6th or 7th, but I want to remain flexible. I begin my student teaching process next fall. I'm very excited! I still have many concerns but I hope to learn a lot from joining this group.

Hi, everyone!  I'm very excited to start my brand new job in the fall as an 8th grade LA teacher.  I'm already trying to come up with plans.  I am going to focus on classroom management first, since I know it is key to a smoothly run classroom.  Any helpful hints and resources are greatly appreciated.  I'm currently reading Wormeli's "Day One and Beyond" and the Wong's "First Days of School."

Good morning.....calling all teachers, students, colleagues, etc...

I sincerely apologize if any of you are receiving this message more than once. We are trying to reach as many teachers/students as possible around the world. It's possible that you're a member of more than one of the groups I have joined. My apologies!

My name is Rossel Mulaire. I am a Canadian teacher who has been living and working in Monterrey, Mexico since 2004. For the past two years, I have been teaching 8th and 9th grade Social Studies/World History. My other responsibilities include being our school's Model United Nation's advisor and Social Studies Department Head. I have taught many different grade levels (first through tenth grades), in Canada, South Korea, and Mexico.

I recently started a little project on Twitter with my 8th and 9th graders, tweeting daily about historical facts and events, sort of like a "this day in history". We are wondering if you'd be able to give out our twitter address to students and teachers. Not only wherever you find yourselves now, but anywhere else you may have contacts. We see this as a great way to teach and appreciate history, bit by bit, one small step at a time. We are trying to use technology to reach more students, and to open dialogue with students and teachers around the world.

If you are in a position to help us, please do so by JOINING US ON TWITTER and by sending our twitter address to students and colleagues, past and present. Ask them to follow our many daily tweets. At the moment, we are tweeting about historical events and facts from around the world. We'd love to see students commenting on our tweets, and also, by adding to our project by posting historical content from their respected countries.

We are hoping to hear from teachers and students from all  parts of the world! The students are keeping a record of the various countries following us! Please help out by following us. The more people (students, teachers, family members, etc) we have following us, the more excited the students get. This excitement then becomes a motivator to continue! Help us make learning about history a little more interesting!

Our  twitter address is: www.twitter.com/rosselmulaire

Please feel free to contact me anytime. I'd be happy to answer any questions or doubt you may have.

Rossel Mulaire

Colegio Euroamericano,

I was wondering if anyone knew how to create CBA for 4th grade social studies? I am struggling just wrapping my head around this.

Hi everyone I am a student at SPU working in the Curriculum & Instruction program.  I am looking for ways in which I can introduce my students to learning with technology.  The majority of my students have little experience using computers and do not have access to them at home.  Do you have any project ideas that you have used?

"To Sir with love" part I and II are very good films for teachers. An inspirational story for new teachers.

I just wanted to mention #ntchat on Twitter for everyone here. A lot of educators sharing resources for new teachers. Also, here's another great list of new teacher resources.

Hi Everybody, glad I found this site. I'm a student teacher right now and am really excited to connect with other new teachers. I'm teaching at an inner city middle school in Los Angeles. So far its been challenging but a lot of fun. Hope to connect with you all soon :D

How to motivate students to write essays?

It is rather difficult to teach students, but to motivate them is even harder. At schools and even at colleges you have to contact with children who try to reject someone else's influence. And the fact is that this rejection is a logical result of misconception of the roles of both. It is possible to overcome the conflict of generations, and you can touch the children, and they can hear you. If you are so lucky to succeed and make student listen, then you can motivate them to any activity and…See More
