Well, the semester is quickly coming to an end so it is time to start working overtime on our project! We are going to an elementary classroom on Monday to film the three different strategies being taught. After that we will spend a lot of time editing the videos using Final Cut Express and will publish them to our website. However, until the website looks a little bit more polished, we won’t be making it public.
We are very excited to get the ball rolling on this project. We realize that it will be a lot of work, but teaching is something that all three of us are passionate about, so if we can use our recently acquired technological skills to help other teachers, GREAT!
I’m trying to decide between two texts to use for my strategy – DRTA. One text is called Yaba Gaba retold by Joy Cowley, or The New Pet by Lalie Narcourt and Ricki Wortzman. I like the length of The New Pet, but Yaba Gaba provides more predictive points throughout the text… For now I am going to prepare both texts, just in case!
