Teaching Tip of the Month

Using a variety of instructional strategies and learning activities provides students with opportunities to learn in ways that are responsive to their own communication styles, cognitive styles, and aptitudes.

A Message to America

About eight or nine days after the destruction of the World Trade Centers, I asked my students to think about what message they would like to send out to America in response. We established a "message column" in the media center for students to share their responses with the school community. Students could create their message in any media, but were limited to red, whiter, and blue colors. Here are some of the messages that flowed around the column:

 
   American will stand tall. 
   Healing takes time. 
   Stick together. 
   America is united. 
   Help, Hope, Harmony 
   Freedom should not be taken for
