The Get More Out of Google Infographic Summarizes Online Research Tricks for Students

I consistently forget these tricks. Now I have a visual. Thanks, Internet.


I wish I’d known this in undergrad.

Sending this to my coworkers on Monday.

Anonymous said: what games are good for a high school english classroom?

englishmajorinrepair:

"Games"

Apples to Apples, Scattergories, literary hangman, Bananagrams (and also just anagrams in general — write a word on the board and have students come up with as many words as they can using the letters in that word; bonus — see who can come up with the most words, and have a reward [could just be bragging rights] if a student comes up with more words than the teacher), magnetic poetry (either up on the whiteboard or on individual cookie sheets or something), and pass the story (I don’t know what the official name is, but, you know, the students sit in a circle, write a few sentences of a story, and then pass the paper along to the next student after a designated time). 

Some of them might seem a bit childish, but high school students are generally thrilled to play most of these “games” — especially during the last few minutes of class after a long period of work.

Here is my first homework assignment for my students next week.  Our school has a required summer reading program.
My students will choose an index card and think about their reading to decide upon a passage they think is the most important one to their understanding, the book’s theme, or simply is their favorite.  They will get to post their quotes on the bulletin board.  These quotes will form the basis for a mini discussion group activity and everyone will be able to have something up for the upcoming parents’ night.
It will also help my students begin the deeper thinking they will do for our full-on literature circle reading program.
I forgot to say that this will help them review their reading for a more formal writing piece about their book that they will write the week after.

I’m currently trying to organize my lettering posters into neatly labeled folders and when I get to ‘Nerdfighteria’, let’s just say I am a little bit surprised/amused that it has already been this many.
