Re: Meeting students interests and needs
- I would chose a topic that is specifically one of the national
standards. You could have the greatest lesson in the world, but
if an assessor has been trained to look for appropriate
standards, you might not get a passing score. My mentors last
year steered me to this info time and time again. I passed my
first time. good luck. Julie

- Oh my gosh!!. Thanks Donna for all the...er... detail..LOL. I will
read and look up the other standards...cool... Thanks for pointing
me in the right direction.
The science teacher
- YES! Weather and Climate is there...Donna just showed you how to access
it...Now, take that tornado alley concept and translate it into how
important it is for students to know how to use weather to stay safe and
interpret weather maps / forecasts. This is extremely relevant and
important to them as students and as adults. Weather factors and
patterns will always have a major influence in their lives, work or

I would like to have this web site. Sounds interesting!!!!
- This site will only plot data for linear graphs. However it is still
a great on-line excercise. My students can use this to plot their
data for their science projects and get a nice looking graph.
The link is titled as "Create A Graph".
