IMatrix assists inquiry-based instruction that aligns to skills embedded in the K-12 Common Core standards for English/language arts, math, science, and social studies. Resources gathered from many sites help teachers develop classroom materials that incorporate questioning, critical thinking, and problem-solving within the six steps of inquiry: Locating Information, Evaluating Information, Applying Information, Sharing Knowledge, and Reflecting on Learning. Search by subject, grade level, and/or standards. Results include standards, cross-curricular connections, assessments, college career readiness, and instructional strategies with resources. No registration required.

tag(s): digital citizenship (65), inquiry (38), literacy (106)

In the Classroom

This rich curricular tool will be useful for teachers of all grade levels and subjects looking for Common Core Standards instructional resources or how to teach research, especially through inquiry learning. Extra materials include documents to help teachers plan a research unit in the classroom and a "backpack" feature that allows search results to be saved, printed, and emailed during a single session. No registration required. Some results may be linked to Ohio-only online electronic databases, but many of the articles will be available to you in local public and school libraries. A stand-alone site found through a power button icon in the upper left corner will take you back to INFOhio which contains password protected Ohio-only content. This review is for the free and accessible resources only.

In addition to music, Genius also offers annotations for literature, news, sports, TV shows, and movies. Search any section to find specific content or browse through the latest offerings. Install the Chrome extension to use Genius's Web Annotator and add your own notes to any web page or put genius.it in front of any URL to annotate and read other user's notes on any web page. If your district blocks YouTube, some portions may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube. Important: Content is not moderated, be sure to PREVIEW and check for inappropriate content before using with students.

tag(s): bookmarks (64), citations (35), note taking (39)

After creating an account, type Teacher's Guide in the search box to find the link for a very complete guide. The guide has information for using Genius in the classroom and creating accounts.

For younger students, keep it short to reduce the intimidating reality of too much information for kids. Attach a note with a discussion question for the students. Have them comment on the link in a "class discussion" as an outside assignment.

Find articles to enhance the understanding of what water is, why we need it, what a shortage is, shortages in developing countries, and what you can do to save water. The site was created in the UK so some of the pronunciations and spellings may differ from those in American English and measurements use the metric system. Articles are printable or can be emailed.
