  2. NOW Classrooms, Grades 6-8: Lessons for Enhancing Teaching and Learning Through Technology

    In NOW Classrooms, Grades 6-8, authors Meg Ormiston, Lauren Slanker, Jennifer Lehotsky, Megan K. Flaherty, Janice Conboy and Whitney Cavanagh stress that real transformational school change focuses on robust teaching and learning, not the ever-evolving devices that may enhance that change. This book presents practical, classroom-tested lessons that grades 6-8 teachers and instructional coaches can use to prime students to actively learn and solve real-world problems. Sets of topical lessons progressively increase in depth and complexity for readers to choose from based on students’ needs. Using these lessons, grounded in the essential four C skills, teachers can connect technology to key learning-area outcomes and prepare students to succeed in the 21st century.

  3. Personalized Reading: Digital Strategies and Tools to Support All Learners

    Classrooms today include a diversity of readers, and teachers are called upon to meet the needs of all learners. In particular, they must help students think critically and communicate effectively using visual, print and digital text. Personalized Reading highlights four different types of readers - the struggling reader, the reluctant reader, English learners and advanced readers - and presents ways to use technology tools to accommodate their different reading styles. The strategies and classroom-ready ideas in this book will help secondary educators incorporate technology to promote reading, critical thinking and digital literacy.

  4. Creative Coding: Lessons and Strategies to Integrate Computer Science Across the 6-8 Curriculum

    Access to high-quality computer science (CS) instruction has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. Thanks to this movement, more students start the middle years with some foundational knowledge of CS and coding. This new set of creative skills empowers students to express themselves in compelling ways, but students still need opportunities and support to develop and hone those skills. This book helps classroom teachers develop activities and projects to encourage computational thinking and coding skills, and to build bridges between those skills and practice. For maths, science, English and Humanities and Social Science teachers, the resources in this book provide guidance to start integrating coding into their classes to complement and strengthen existing instruction.

  7. Stepping into STEM

    The Stepping into STEM series is a collection of dynamic resources that provide guided lessons to integrate project-based learning into your science, technology, engineering and maths curricula. Each unit provides background information for teachers and students and moves from teacher-directed activities towards more open-ended activities. The culminating activity in each unit allows students to design their own unique "invention" or conduct an experiment of their own creation. Students will be challenged to work collaboratively, using a process that helps them "step into STEM" with greater competence and confidence. Each book in the Stepping into STEM series offers unique activities and opportunities for exploration.

  10. Media Literacy in the F-12, Updated and Expanded Second Edition

    Today's average youth spends over 10 hours a day consuming media. Aided by technology, young people can instantly share and engage with media messages to find answers, get directions, shop or connect with friends. But access alone doesn't lead to critical thinking. Media are texts, designed to be read, analysed, deconstructed and reconstructed. Understanding how to interpret advertising messages, check for bias or avoid stereotyping are among the skills students need to become knowledgeable consumers and producers of media. This book helps educators understand the importance of teaching media literacy and gives them the tools needed to bring this form of literacy into the classroom.
