Two great resources this week

This week, 2 very interesting articles came across my Twitter Network. Both articles include strategies that will facilitate higher level thinking in our classrooms.

First came the "Upgrade Your KWL Chart to the 21st Century" article.  First posted in 2011 and circling around the Twitter network again thank goodness because I hadn't seen it before. This is definitely something that will take practice/coaching with students to get them to be able to effectively answer the questions within the graphic organizer.

The second article that came through Twitter was: "The Difference Between Doing Projects Versus Learning Through Projects". It's interesting to me because my students are currently doing a "project" (dare I call it that?). I think I'll call it a learning experience. I shared this article with them in hopes that they use it as a guide to develop a learning experience that uses social media as a tool to enhance the teaching/learning process.
