Working in collaboration with the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), the Center for Digital Education produced this Guide to Choosing Digital Content and Curriculum to help districts address some of the challenges of moving from a print-based to a digital-based curriculum. It provides context, effective practices and resources for districts, and presents case studies of districts already implementing digital content or setting up the infrastructure to do so. We hope you find it useful and informative as you begin or continue implementing digital content and curriculum.

This is a two-part interactive game for middle school students that introduces them to the concepts of globalization and interdependence. In the first part, the students discover how clothing is sourced globally. The second part describes the issues related to the pieces and parts of a MP3 planner (this part is a little dated, but I have been able to connect it back to cell phones).

Games can be played as a group with the utilization of a Smartboard type device.

The resources includes an educator guide and integration with Google Classroom. I have used it as part of a larger lesson segment in Business Exploratory on Corporate Social Responsibility and Globalization.

How do librarians in schools support struggling readers?
Rating

Abstract from webpage: While librarians in schools often face significant budgetary cuts, they can play an important role in supporting learning in literacy and literature. However, little is known about the practices that they may employ to this end. Of particular interest is the role of librarians in schools in supporting struggling readers, as these students may be increasingly disadvantaged as they move through the years of schooling. Semi-structured interview data were collected from teacher librarians at 30 schools and analysed to identify practices exercised by teacher librarians that aligned with extant research around supporting struggling readers. Teacher librarians provided support by identifying struggling readers, providing them with age and skill-appropriate materials, undertaking skill scaffolding supporting choice, supporting students with special needs, providing one-to-one matching, promoting access to books, enhancing the social position of books and reading, reading aloud to students, facilitating silent reading, and preparing students for high-stakes literacy testing.

You will work in groups of 4-5 people; each group will be responsible for researching and presenting their information pertaining to the times of Julius Caesar to the class through a PowerPoint presentation. Make sure you go in depth and truly analyze your topic—you are responsible for teaching the class your information. Do not simply read from your slides—you want to SHOW us you understand your topic through the information you present. Your PowerPoint should be an overview of your topic—you should have information [notecards] with you to help you teach more information to the class. Topics and partners will be assigned to you.  Each person in the group is responsible for speaking during the presentation; make sure you organize PRIOR to the presentation who will be doing what. There will be responsibilities of the group, in order to earn the group grade, and responsibilities of you as an individual, to earn an individual grade. Everyone will be quizzed on the material at the end.
