Presidents’ Day Resource Roundup

Education Resource Roundup

Education Resource Roundup

Several new education resources for parents and teachers made their appearance in January and February this year.

On Literacy Beat, I posted a collection of links with descriptions for several online dictionaries and glossaries. If the language and acronyms of special education, teaching strategies, technology education and other specialized fields seems bewildering, start here.

Some of Literacy Beat’s most popular posts last year dealt with using cognates for vocabulary building, the vocabulary self-collection strategy plus technique, and differentiation with technology. Catch up on these popular posts.

The SOLOM or Student Oral Language Observation Matrix has been around for quite a while. Now, it is available as a spreadsheet that automatically calculates scores for teachers. Read about it and download your own copy:

With so many good books available, parents and teachers need a kick start to find just the right book on just the right topic. Fortunately, there is an app for that from BYU’s Creative Works.  Read more about Kids’ Book Finder and get the app for iPhone and iPad (Android version is in the works).

To round out this roundup, IAIE has begun a series of Parents’ Guides. The first explains ideas and teaching techniques teachers use in many classrooms, often as part of the Common Core State Standards Initiative.  Get your paper copy on CreateSpace (An Amazon Company) or on Kindle or paper directly from Amazon.
