The objective of
this project is to help teachers develop new literacies into their
content area instruction.
NETS for Students
1. Basic operations and concepts
2. Social, ethical, and human issues
3. Technology productivity tools
4. Technology communications tools
Participants will select a book and read it as a Read Aloud or Shared Reading. After the book is read, the class will create a different version, new ending, or sequel to the story. This will be done as a Modeled/Shared Writing or Interactive Writing. These writing models can be done on paper or with a word processor and projected on a screen.
The teacher will then create a follow-up activity in any content area using Kidspiration. The written piece and Kidspiration file will be e-mailed to Susan or Pattie for publication. Click HERE for instructions on how to submit materials for this project.
One of the goals of this project is to produce a collection of Kidspiration activities that will be SHARED by one and all. The firm deadline to send in materials is October 31, 2002. We hope that the Kidspiration collections will be useful as center activities.
*Inspiration can also be used but we recommend Kidspiration. You can get download a thirty day trial version of Kidspiration.
This project is designed for K-2 students.
