Teach This! Teaching with lesson plans and ideas that rock #teaching 01/18/2012
100 Years in 10 Minutes (1911 - 2011 in 10 Minutes) - YouTube
Dare we do such a thing? 100 years in 10 minutes. Yes. It is on YouTube. This video is going viral. If you had to compile your last 20 years in 2 minutes or your 80 year life span in 8 - what would make it? This is one to watch and share. It is a bit upsetting as you see the war and devastation but I have to wonder if those are the things we remember.
Dickens 2012 – Celebrating the 200th birthday of Charles Dickens - Resources - TES
Upload your Charles Dickens lessons and resources in this competition to submit the best resources. This is a UK competition, but perhaps some others may want to enter as well.
I also wanted to include this because of the great list of Charles Dickens resources here. If you teach Great Expectations or any other Dickens classic, you'll want to download these free lesson plans and resources.
To be eligible for the Charles Dickens / Literary Heritage competition, all lesson plans & teaching resources shared must only cater for texts by authors found in the literary heritage section of the Secondary English National Curriculum, or from current GCSE & A Level awarding body specifications for English.
Your can submit resources for poetry, prose or drama texts (or all three!) across the relevant key stage. At GCSE and A Level, resources can be submitted to support teaching and learning of controlled assessment and / or examination units.
When you upload resources for entry to the competition, please take care to tag and classify your resources accurately in the relevant key stage, topic and sub topic areas. For example:
TES collection Chinese New Year - Resources - TES
Chinese New Year Collection with many different lessons at all age levels along with downloadables to use. If you are expecting your students to have global literacy, you cannot afford to ignore China. This is a fun time to teach about it - kids love dragons and fireworks!
inside a painting - Resources - TES
How should students analyze a painting? This middle/ high school project gives a writing structure for analyzing painting in this cross disciplinary unit.
