A NEW STRATEGY (FOR ME)

As some of you who pop in from time to time realize, I'm a high school teacher when I'm not blogging. Lately, I've found myself using another blog to interact with students. My latest insight is that I can show a film in class, but also make that same film available on my blog by embedding a link to that video. My district blocks YouTube, but Google Video and (especially) Hulu make it through just fine.

Being able to provide this resource in a different venue makes it easier to require assessments based upon the video, and this can really be an effective way to get certain kinds of material across. An example of this can be found here.

An entire lesson, including film, in one blog post ... outstanding!
