I decided to join the Tried It Tuesday linky today because I just tried something new that I am loving - LearnZillion!
So I was "toodleing" around looking for new ideas to review punctuating dialogue and then I found it!
It's a great instructional video, aligned with common core which is clearly identified, and includes a guided worksheet. I think the idea is that you could assign it to be done at home and then be reviewed at school - flipped classroom style!
However, it works out just great to do it in class. Besides, I think students would need training on how to make it all work on their own. They offer easy access codes to the lesson for students so they don't have to write down a big web address. I see myself posting these codes on my Edmodo pages and sending them out on Remind. Of course, I would show all of this to my students first (once I've ascertained whether everyone in my classes has internet access at home).
Our ultimate goal for this unit is to write a narrative (with dialogue) and so the other video that popped up was this one:
How perfect is that? And the best part? It's FREE!!
Hope you have a chance to check it out. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
