Take advantage of the free lesson plans (provided in PowerPoint format) and interactives for use when teaching genetics, health, or biology lessons. Be sure to share this site with students interested in medical careers and gifted learners. After learning about cancer, have students create a multimedia presentation using Voicethread, reviewed here, to share their findings on cancer treatments and research. Voicethread allows you to narrate a picture. Challenge students to find a photo (legally permitted to be reproduced), and then narrate the photo as if it is a news report. Sign up for Decoding Cancer to receive updates and notification of new site additions.

Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

Keep these creative ideas in your "emergency" lesson plan folder for substitutes or your own spontaneous writing needs. Share Pobble365 as a link on your class web page to inspire students in search of a topic they can "relate to." Have students choose their favorite response and find more pictures to turn it into a digital story. Try using Picsearch, reviewed here, or Compfight, reviewed here, to find free images. Use a tool like Utellstory, reviewed here, that allows narrating and adding text to a picture.

2016 was the 400th year since Shakespeare died. To help commemorate Shakespeare's life, Expedia put together this wonderful interactive map, Global Shakespeare Explorer. Easily explore Shakespeare's legacy with this tool. Click His Life to see different biographical locations, click Plays to see the different settings for his plays, and click Legacy to see where to find events like festivals. Warn students NOT to click on Find A Hotel.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): shakespeare (132)

In the Classroom

This resource would make a very good introduction to a unit about Shakespeare. Give students time to explore the map to build some background knowledge about Shakespeare. Alternatively, flip your classroom and share a link to the interactive map with students on your class website to view outside of class. Ask students to explore the map and decide on a topic that interests them to research. During the discussion in class about the items that interest students, use an online whiteboard like Scrumblr, reviewed here, (quick start- no membership required!) to form small groups (or pairs) for researching the favorite topics. Students can continue to use Scrumblr to organize tasks and resources. Review the TeachersFirst Special Topics page for Shakespeare to see if there are resources for certain groups to use. As a culmination of this project, have students present what they learned about their Shakespeare topic using a tool like Ignite, reviewed here. With Ignite students can collaborate and work on the presentation in real-time.

There are over six or seven thousand languages in the world. How many languages can you identify? Listen and find out with the Great Language Game. Listen to several sentences and then click the button of one of four different languages. If you're correct, the button turns green, and you click next to move on. Not correct? The button turns red. After three incorrect choices, towards the bottom of the page will appear the languages you couldn't identify and a chance to listen to them again. See if you can collect more points each time you play!

In the Classroom

This site would be very handy in world language classes and when working with ESL/ELL students. Use this site as a learning station or center. Students could find their native language and play it for their peers, then interpret the sentence in English (Spanish, French, etc.). Include this site as a resource when students are preparing a project about another culture. If you have students in world language, world cultures, or even language arts classes who need enrichment - listen to languages and see if they can find one they would like to learn. If they find one, send them to The Vocabulary Trainer, reviewed here, to learn some basic vocabulary for that language.
