Students Creating & Writing and Sharks

Only two favorite posts this week – one about students becoming creators instead of just consumers and the other about writing lessons from a shark.  Really cool.

Engaging Students in the STEM Classroom Through Making posted on Edutopia.  This post talks about an emerging practice of having students be more than consumers of information by having them make things or be creators.   http://www.edutopia.org/blog/stem-engagement-maker-movement-annmarie-thomas

Writing Lessons from a Shark posted on Lynne Kelly’s blog Making Stuff Up and Writing it Down.  This post is hysterical but true.  She compares lessons learned from he jaws and writing.   http://lynnekelly.blogspot.com/2012/08/9-writing-lessons-from-jaws.html?goback=.gde_67346_member_152893100

Enjoy the weekend!!

  1. I might be doing something wrong, but the Lyndd Kelly link is not acting like a link.  So I will copy and paste, but maybe you want to look at it again and edit.
