Current is a completely private online diary using just 140 characters (a la Twitter). Login with a user name, password (email address needed), and begin typing. Current keeps a daily record of writing along with a time stamp, making it a simple and private tool for short journal writing.

tag(s): creative writing (166), journals (21)

In the Classroom

Share this site with students to create their own private diary or journal. Because it is only 140 characters, Current may be a good option for students to use for prewriting and brainstorming before beginning writing projects. Create your own account and use Current as a tool for reflecting on lessons and classroom activities each day. If you have individual laptops for students, or are in a byod school, why not begin class with a Current entry each day. Have students keep a simple, year-long journal of the highlights of their learning. Use Current as lesson "closure" using today's 140 character format.

Visit the "Art Basics" section to build your background or review art vocabulary found in the lessons. Go "Inside the Art Room" for information on classroom management, organization, supplies, and how-to videos. The posts are detailed and provide insight with authentic classroom experiences. Don't forget to dig through the "Scrap Box" section of the site for more great art information! Blog posts, book reviews, and art shows are just a few of the items located in the "Scrap Box" section. At the time of this review, there were also a few Common Core and the Arts blog posts. Deep Space Sparkle is free, but offers eBooks and eCourses for purchase.

In the Classroom

This site is a must-see for any teacher of medieval history or for students fascinated by the era of castles and knights. Although information is related to Britain, it provides an in-depth look at the period and way of life in western Europe. Use an online tool such as Interactive Two Circle Venn Diagram (reviewed here) to compare medieval life in Britain to that of another country or to the present day. Have students use Fakebook (reviewed here) to create a "fake" page similar in style to Facebook about someone living in medieval times. Assign students different occupations or roles in society to view differences in the way of life during this time. This site could also provide historical context for many works of fiction such as the King Arthur tales and more.

Do you wish you had enough time in your schedule for one-on-one personalized writing conferences with your students or writers you know? Kaizena (previously 121Writing) can make that dream a reality. Kaizena allows you to give feedback on writing via an audio recording. Writers often have difficulty reading the margin notes from teachers or other readers, or they need more explanation. An audio recording of the feedback provides a personalized experience to enhance the writing process. Kaizena works best by synching with your Google Drive account. There is an option at the bottom of the page to sign up by sending in your name and email address. However, this can take a while, so plan ahead! Sign in with your Google account to watch a helpful video and learn how to connect to your Google Drive account or school Google Apps account.

Start by highlighting a text selection, hit record, and provide your feedback. Writers will be able to listen to your feedback and revise or edit their writing as though you were face to face. Tag your highlighted text with keywords that can be tracked in a mastery-based rubric. You could tag conventional errors, mistakes, or selections that are amazing. Verbal feedback can be played on an iPad so students can listen in the best learning environment to meet their needs. Writers will progress as you enhance the writing process with explicit audio feedback. Kaizena can enhance feedback for written work for any school subject or even outside of school.

In the Classroom

Editing and revising are better with audio feedback. Provide explicit details to improve student performance. Students can record peer edits and share audio recordings with classmates. Classroom time is more efficient and effective when students can listen to your feedback before meeting face to face. Have students highlight passages of text and provide their reflections on the selection. World language classes can speak text or respond to questions in their new language. Learning support students will better understand audio feedback on their writing than detailed comments written in "teacher-ese." This is a great tool for students to highlight poetry and record their thoughts and feelings on the text. Students can highlight and record their thought process as they solve math word problems. Highlight and record opinions on current event articles. Highlight an entire passage of text to model reading fluency. Students can listen and read along with the recording to help with phrasing and expression. Highlight text and model fluency for ESL/ELL students. Highlight assessment questions or text for lower-level readers to provide a level playing field in the classroom. Challenge students to provide audio feedback to their peers on passages where they would like to know more, questions they have as readers, and positive feedback on passages they enjoy.

Youtopia is an online management system to record and track student behaviors and more. Use pre-built templates, or build your own set of activities for students to perform. When activities are completed, award points and badges are given to acknowledge positive accomplishments. Set up your own activities and reward systems to your own specifications. Managers confirm accomplishments before points or badges are rewarded and may add comments or notes to each activity. Up to 50 students may be included in a class under the free program. Under the free option you can also have 20 activities and 3 goals, along with simple reports. With such limited numbers, this tool is likely more useful for elementary teacher who have fewer students, though it could be used at any level.

In the Classroom

Award points for positive behaviors such as participation, helping others, creativity, hard work, or whatever is applicable to your class. Using Youtopia for group behaviors will give immediate feedback to students if projected on your whiteboard or projector.

Are you a regular education teacher with special education students included in your classroom? Use Youtopia to privately keep track of student behaviors and send a report to special education teachers or parents. This could be invaluable to a life skills, autistic support, or emotional support teacher who needs to track the behavior of each of the students as part of an IEP. Alternative education programs may find this tool very useful, as well, up through high school.

Learn more about the Civil War. Information on people, battles, culture and more is provided. Though the site is South Carolina specific, the links provide lots of general information about the Civil War and offer a different perspective than that of "northerners." This collection is listed in the "elementary" section of this site but reading levels in some resources are more appropriate for older students.

tag(s): battles (16), civil war (145), slavery (72)

In the Classroom

Use this site to explore the many aspects of the Civil War. Watch a short video from the "Price of Freedom" link to introduce your students to the Civil War. Use the culture section to explore woman's fashion of the Civil War era. See what woman were doing while the men were at home. Partner weaker readers with stronger ones to manage the text passages. Have students write a letter from the perspective of a wife, mother or sister to a soldier using the Letter Writing Generator (reviewed here).
