Classroom Discussions
You can use almost any educational software or Internet sites from the front of the classroom to guide and direct student learning and to inspire discussion. It helps to create roles for the groups so each person has a perspective to help guide the discussion.

Tim, The reason I asked is that I have previously tried to help (as volunteer) with lesson plans for a crystal radio and the principles involved are usually far over the head of most kids that age. What I need is a simple understandable principal that can be communicated by building a crystal radio, or any other project, for that matter. I found that I must watch the "gee whiz" aspect. Things that I find gee whiz are things that seem to defy the laws of physics. But kids dont know those laws as well as I and they are liable to take demos of exceptional behavior as the norm. For example, di-magentism of bismuth. Hang a bismuth crystal on a thread and bring a strong magnet near it, it repels in any orientation. That is gee whiz to me, but after demonstrating it to a kid, he asked me, then why is this screw attracted to my magnet, as if attraction were the exception. That got my attention. What point was I getting across anyway? That science is NOT understandable? So, please give me a clear concise statement of something you want to teach and we will try to help make a dynamite demo-experiment that has a "gee whiz" climax that drives home the precise point! (Maybe).

Tim, My question would be, what are your teaching objectives regarding the projects. What point do you want to get across to 85% of the students. I will help you come up with simple projects that teach a point, if I know the point. Typically, I expect you would want a succession of points (and a succession of experiments or demos, hands on) that lead to an understanding of something. For eighth grade, it needs to be simple and obvious. Regards, John Last changed: May 17, 2004

"Research Scavenger Hunt" Nancy Harrington, Grade 7 Teacher/Dag Hammarskjold M.S.
"This is great for the end of the school year (especially if your media center is air-conditioned and your classroom isn't). Using the research worksheets provided on this site, I had the students work in teams of three to find the necessary information. They could use the Internet, reference books, and other sources, as well. They loved doing it, and it was a great way to keep cool while letting them out of the classroom." "Making Flags" Terry Silvestri: Kent, Nevada Materials: Construction paper, writing paper, popsicle stick or flag stick, crayons, markers, glue, pencils. Ask students to create mini flags for all themes being studied. Then have the students attach their flags to the book. I like to have them make individual flags for each character in the book we are reading at the time. On the back of the flag, I ask them to write an acrostic poem about character. They love it!

    Using Art to Reach and Teach
    Each week, an educator takes a stand or shares an Aha! moment in the classroom in the Education World Voice of Experience column. This week, educator Kathleen Modenbach reflects on how art projects can be a great bridge between some students and difficult content. She recalls how an art project constructed around Romeo and Juliet spurred one special education student to ask "Did Shakespeare write anything else?" Wow! Included: Modenbach shares sample art project ideas plus a message board where you can share your pet art projects!
    Although I appreciate art, I'm no good at it. In fact, I can draw only stick people. I confess this to my high school students whenever I assign an art project, which I do from time to time to motivate their understanding of literature. I've been assigning art projects for years. I realized long ago long before it was fashionable or mandated the benefits of teaching to student learning styles and strengths. Back then, as a novice special education teacher, I discovered that a large percentage of my learning disabled students were good artists and that their artistic talents weren't being nurtured or capitalized upon. It was then that I started using art projects to reinforce everything from Shakespearean drama to modern literature.

    Speakers, Projects Bring Veterans' Stories to Classroom
    Teachers use a variety of ways to educate students about the historic significance of Veterans Day, coming on November 11. Some teachers ask students to interview a veteran, others invite current members of the military to talk to their students, and others use the holiday as a chance to focus on the historical time line that evolved Veterans Day into a national holiday. Included: Classroom activities for teaching about Veterans Day! Although many towns mark Veterans Day by closing school, the holiday provides teachers with opportunities for presenting lessons and assemblies often held the week before Veterans Day in many different areas. History including students' own family histories language arts, civics, geography, and social responsibility, are just a few. Veterans Day has been a federal holiday in the United States since 1938; originally called Armistice Day, it commemorated the end of World War I on November 11, 1918. After World War II, the name was changed to Veterans Day. Congress declared it a day to honor all veterans in 1954. Canada honors its veterans on Remembrance Day, also celebrated November 11.

    Technos: Quarterly for Education and Technology
    Winter, 2000 by Ellen Dempsey Heidi Reinholdt
    QUESTION: HOW CAN WE INTRODUCE TEACHERS TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF NEW MEDIA? ANSWER: GO ONLINE WITH THE TEACHERS NETWORK TEACHNET PROJECT. For three days in August 2000, several teachers participating in the New York City TeachNet Project ( gathered in a high school computer lab in downtown Manhattan for a workshop designed to address the technical, practical, and pedagogical issues surrounding the integration of new media into classroom curriculum. While there were the inevitable discussions of hardware, software, and various technological trials and tribulations, this group of teachersall of whom had already used new media in their own classrooms and were preparing to serve as mentors to less experienced teacherswas at its liveliest when the conversation turned to the subject of how technology has influenced their teaching and the learning process of their students. One teacher remarked, "It's unbelievable. Kids who used to struggle to pay attention in class are so excited about learning; they come in early and stay after school to work on their projects. Kids of every level of ability get equally excited, too. There's no competition, only individual enthusiasm and accomplishment." Another emphatically nodded her head and agreed: "Absolutely. And there's ownership. Kids use the Internet to research, they use the computer to create a report or a work of creative writing or a newsletter with a desktop publishing program, whateverwhen they put all the tools together, produce something original, and see it with their name on it, on the class Web page or in that newsletter, they own it. They take tremendous pride in their work and want to do more."

    Summary and in other sections of this web site.
    What This Site Offers
    This site offers college faculty and classroom teachers information and ideas to consider when integrating technology in the classroom, resources to help incorporate technology in Language Arts English Education, and sample student projects to illustrate technology’s use in curriculum. This site can also be used by college faculty and classroom teachers in non-Language Arts subject areas to help them implement technology in their own curricula.
    Who Will Benefit From Using This Site
    As a result of Project LITT experiences, it became evident that much of the information we used and ideas we developed could be useful to the following audiences: Pre-service K-8 Language Arts Instruction, Pre-service 9-12 English Education, and Pre-service Teacher Education in other disciplines, and K-12 Classroom Teachers and Administrators . Thus, the decision was made to combine all of the resources we had assembled into one general manual and to provide separate "orientations" for the respective audiences that help guide them to informative materials for their own use. A brief description of the orientations follows.

Students will know a famous architect (Buck Minster Fuller) who uses dome structure. Students will plan for a 3D form and establish an assembly line process that is appropriate to fastest construction as a cooperative group. Students will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their material. Act out structures with volunteers from the class. Motivation : Act out structures with volunteers from the class. Write the name of the structures on the board and have students brainstorm for the human counterpart. (Can play this out like the game Pictionary) Show slides of Fuller's dome, or any built dome structure as an exemplar.
