Using Online Resources to Study Women in History

As an instructional technology specialist, I always emphasized the importance of learning about the history of technology and important people who invented tools and techniques we use today. One famous woman in the history of technology is Dr. Grace Hopper. With National Women's History Month being celebrated in March, I've provided online resources to research biographies about important women in history.

Find great online resources for various social studies research projects, but particularly for learning about women in history in the upper elementary classroom. This blog post gives you great, credible online sources where students can find great information - including the Library of Congress, Newsela, WhiteHouse.gov, Bio.com, and EdPuzzle. Click through to see how you can use these tools with your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, or 6th grade classroom and homeschool students today.


Why Teach Media Literacy? Distinguishing Between REAL and FAKE News

Why teach media literacy? With information overload, it's becoming more and more difficult for our students to distinguish between real and fake news. A recent Stanford study has reported that today's students lack the skills to determine the difference. Media Literacy is an important skill to teach in today's classroom.

Help upper elementary, middle school, & high school students with media literacy by teaching them to distinguish between real and fake news. Learn why what students research and read needs to be up-to-date. Watch videos learning more about legitimate websites, and find out what to look for to spot great information. Tips and tricks are included in this blog post. {3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade classroom or homeschool students, reading, writing, research, PBL}
