Differentiate Your Lecture: Chunk It! I compiled a list of the instructional material and sites that were mentioned in class. The internet sites are all free. Interesting Sites: 1. www.historicaltweets.com for twitter with a twist. 2. www.wallwisher.com more creative way of presenting as opposed to PowerPoint. 3. www.issuu.com upload documents and create a shelf. Kids can access and open documents. Looks like they are browsing through a magazine. 4. www.delicious.com access your bookmarks from any computer. 5. www.litemind.com/scamper/ access multiple intelligence technique. 6. www.bubbl.us/beta/ create your own graphic organizers and more. Book Recommendations: 1. “The Back of the Napkin” by Dan Roam 2. “A Whole New Mind” by Daniel H. Pink 3. “Unstuck” by Keith Yamashita and Sandra Spataro 4. “Brain Rules” by John Medina 5. “Made to stick” by Chip Heath and Dan Heath John Medina recommends: 10 minute instructional chunks with 12 minute transitions. For 90 minute classes you can increase to 1520 minute instructional chunks if needed.
