"I apologize for responding in such a delayed fashion. I am currently in transition to a new state. However I thought it might be of some help to see an example of how a 'traditional' social networking site was used. Having read…"

"Although I am not personally using Twitter in my classroom, I know many of my high school teacher friends in other states are using it! Most of my students have not heard of Twitter yet, but then again most of my students here in rural MS do not…"

Hope you join us online this Thursday, 1/13 at 4pm EST as we explore how reader's theater can be used to improve comprehension of informational text and help students learn science concepts. We'll focus on science-themed text, but the same principles can apply to other  content areas as well. You can find the link to participate, the descriptions, and archived recordings of all the webinars at http://wiki.nsdl.org/index.php/BeyondPenguins/Seminars

Hi Kelly - Hope your summer is going well! I wanted to update you on our free webinars and hope you can join us for one of them soon.

We've had three Tech Talks so far - one on Interactive Notebooks, Moodle, and Digital Storytelling. You can get to the recordings of those by clicking on the Web Archive link.

You can see all our upcoming events by clicking on the Events tab. The next TechTalk topic is Using Wikis. We've got lots more topics to cover in the next few months - technology, pedagogy, content knowledge, all sorts of fun stuff! Any ideas on additional topics or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! Kim

Hi Kelly - So glad you joined the MSP2 network. We're just getting started so any ideas or feedback you have would be greatly appreciated! We've got lots of resources for middle school science teachers - look at the left side of the Main page - Science Publications, Diigo lists, and two project blogs - Connecting News to the National Science Education Standards and Exemplary Resources for Middle School Math and Science.

I see that you clicked on elementary too - we have another project that might be worthwhile for you to check out - Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears - Integrating Literacy and Science for K-5 Teachers. Truth be told - lots of middle school teachers use the resource too!

Hope you get involved - your perspective (2 years in the classroom) would be really good - believe it or not there are lots of veteran teachers that are members!

Welcome – Kim
