Content Area Instruction
As an elementary school teacher, maybe you can’t wait to teach science and social studies–or maybe you just don’t have time. Are you clueless about history or baffled by scientific processes? Or maybe your problem is a lack of interest–how can you make these subjects compelling for students when you don’t like them yourself? There’s good news: these limitations DON’T have to affect your students. In this section, you’ll learn how to get students passionate about the content areas even when you have limited time, resources, or background information.

You can also check out my Delicious bookmarks and Diigo bookmarks. I save all my favorite education websites to Diigo (which automatically cross-posts to Delicious). Previously, I only shared my bookmarks with the teachers I coach when recommending resources for them, but realized this might be something useful for website visitors, too.
If you’re not familiar with how bookmarking sites work: you can search the bookmarks using the tags I’ve assigned for various subject areas and grade levels (1,2,3,4,5, 6-8, 9-12). All the tags are listed on the side of the page. So, for example, if you want to see only math resources for grade 5, you would type math and 5 in the search box.
