Storyboard That For Classroom | Teacher Free Trial - 8 views

    Storyboard That is a robust web tool that allows students to create and edit Storyboards. This site is simple to use and allows users to drag and drop stick figures and screen elements, as well as add their own content, to the storyboard time line. Enough tools and features to be really useful and not too many to confuse young users, this is a nice way for students to create storyboards for class projects, videos, or anything else you can think of including comic strips. There is a nice educator portal which has some lesson plans and example student work. Not free, but free trial and reasonably priced for teachers
    "Bring the world's best storyboard creator into your classroom! From first grade to graduation, Storyboard That engages students with digital storytelling in the classroom."

180 Journal Writing Prompts: Enough for Every Day of the School Year - 6 views

    • Carrie Mitchell
      I like that there are a variety of prompts that would appeal to any student.  Some are shorter, others longer.  The variety of questions would allow me easy access to impromtu writing on the spot if I would have a couple of extra minutes at the end of class or need a "bell assignment".  Some of these could very easily develop into meaningful class discussion especially in a Catholic morality class.
