Current Events: Digital Interactive Notebook

Current Events: Digital Interactive Notebook

This resource allows students to create an interactive notebook page for current events for any subject using either Microsoft PowerPoint or Google Slides. This is perfect for any secondary classroom, as a part of a lesson to understand connections to current issues. The notebook page can be completed online or, if the teacher prefers, it can be printed and completed on paper. Teachers distribute the notebook pages to students electronically, either using Google Drive or a classroom management system such as Edmodo (www.edmodo.com) or Google Classroom (https://classroom.google.com). Students enter the information on each slide (page) and can add these to a subject notebook if the teacher is using that in the class. The pages can also be printed. Instructions for this activity are included for students, along with a grading rubric. A list of current event sites, appropriate for upper elementary, middle or high school is included below in the Teacher Resource section so that specific article(s) can be chosen for the assignment. Another option is to give students the link to one or two sites and let them choose an article of interest. The notebook page is included in both Microsoft PowerPoint and Google Slides (link via Google Drive) and is editable. Two versions are included – one for individual use and one for use if you prefer students work in pairs or teams. Notebook covers are also included if students are just getting started with a notebook. Covers and pages are provided in 6 different colors to make it easy for the teacher to code each class period using a different color, or just to accommodate student preference. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher Notes • Student instructions for using Interactive Notebook Files • Current Event Instructions, Expectations, and Grading Rubric for Teams • Current Event Instructions, Expectations, and Grading Rubric for Individual Use • 6 Different Color Versions of the Interactive Notebook Page in Microsoft PowerPoint (cover and current event page) – 2 different versions for individual or team use • 6 Different Color Versions of the Interactive Notebook Page in Google Slides (cover and current event page) - 2 different versions for individual or team use (links to downloadable files via Google Drive) • 6 Different Color Versions of the Interactive Notebook Page (as non-editable .pdf) for printing – 2 different versions for individual or team use

New school year assembly - what is your 5 year plan?

New school year assembly - what is your 5 year plan?

This assembly starts by getting student to think about new years resolutions they made and probably failed at. It then goes through a more sustainable long term 5 year plan and what this might look like for students. It lasts around 15 minutes and is a great assembly for the start of the academic year. It is aimed at all secondary year groups and worked well when I performed it especially when students got involved. Save yourself some time this summer and grab a bargain.

Memories of kindness

Memories of kindness

This is a key practice to do at the very beginning of learning how to be more mindful. This helps to generate feelings of kindness to others and self. Many of us are not kind enough and this is a gentle way of teaching the mind. It gently teaches the mind to be less critical and judgmental about ourselves.

Loving Kindness for others - meditation

Loving Kindness for others - meditation

This is to develop resilience toward people that you like and help you work on those that you don't like. Over time it helps to relax the minds attitude towards people you think are enemies or people you believe you do not like. We first talk about how we feel if we have to be with people we do not like. We realise that we can train the mind to deal with these people in more relaxed ways. Meditation helps with this and over time we can open up to difficult people.
