Each lesson plan includes a teacher guide, examples, and correlation to standards when applicable. Import activities directly into your Pixton dashboard to begin use.

tag(s): comics and cartoons (69)

In the Classroom

After using several of the lessons, challenge students to create an online or printed comic about what they learned from any lesson (not a Pixton lesson) using the Pixton Lessons as a model. Alternatively, students could lead a class review or they could teach the class about something or someone they are researching using Pixton's comic strip format. If you are used to having students create comics with pencil and paper, you might want to try an online comic creator. First have students create a rough draft of their comic using Printable Comic Strip Templates, reviewed here. Students in grades 1-3 can create a simple comic using one or two characters with Comic Creator, reviewed here. For students in grades 4-12 have them create a comic strip using Write Comics, reviewed here.

This 5 minute YouTube video provides a simple explanation of autism created for parents and teachers to share with students. Simple animations demonstrate how the brains of autistic persons receive information differently. The video also offers simple tips for supporting those with autism. If your district blocks YouTube, the video may not be viewable. You could always view the video at home and bring it to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the video from YouTube.

tag(s): autism (19), brain (73), disabilities (21)

In the Classroom

Share this short video with your class as part of any discussions on autism. Stop the video at different points along the way to discuss the information and develop knowledge of how to understand and work with autistic students. Consider giving all students a chance to voice their opinions (even the shy and quiet ones) by using a tool like Backchannel Chat, reviewed here. Backchannel Chat is an easy tool to manage if you are starting the process of integrating technology into your classroom. If you and your students are more advanced with technology, you may want to use a tool such as Vibby, reviewed here, where you AND your students can annotate, highlight, and ask questions or make observations about the content of the video. This video is also perfect for use during staff meetings as an introduction to considering tools and guidelines for working with autistic students. Include a link to this video on your class webpage to share with parents.

Turn uncomfortable, sensitive topic discussions in your classroom into a learning tool for developing critical thinking skills with NewseumEd's guidelines for helping you and your students discuss issues respectfully. Topics like racial tensions, politics, and religion can become a classroom learning tool to teach the art of dialogue and to increase respectful public speaking, confidence, engagement, and listening skills. Read and use the four guidelines: confidence in your content, respectfulness of your participants, asking questions, and encouraging debate, and be the best the facilitator you can be. You must be a registered NewseumEd member to access this resource; however, membership is free.

tag(s): debate (44), listening (92), speaking (25)

In the Classroom

Have this lesson handy when a controversial or contentious subject emerges. You just never know when that will happen, but you can run with it if you prepare using these NewseumEd guidelines. Share them with students, so they will understand what they need to do to participate successfully in a discussion or debate. Are there no issues at hand? Try finding one using Teachable Moments, reviewed here. At Teachable Moments find lesson plans based on articles and current topics, ready for download in PDF format. Try giving students a choice! Show them several subjects and use Dotstorming, reviewed here, to comment and vote on topics for the discussion. Use the opportunity to hone students information literacy skills by reviewing how to evaluate and cite sources. Once they have researched their topic, and are ready to discuss, use a tool such as Socratic Smackdown, reviewed here, to practice their discussion and argument strategies. With older students, a next step might be to take the debate public using Virtual Debate, reviewed here, which has online examples and resources for conducting virtual debates, or ProConIt, reviewed here, where you create a debate or ask specific questions of a group or the entire web.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional development session from May 2017, opens in Adobe Connect. Want to go paperless? Try Google Classroom, an online tool that incorporates G-Suite apps into a dynamic classroom environment. Learn how to create, distribute, and grade assignments. Understand how to organize class resources, post announcements, and questions. Google Classroom makes it easy to coordinate and organize your G-Suite and tech-infused students projects. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels. NOTE: To participate you must be able to sign into a Google account that has been set up by your school district. You must have access to G-Suite with Google Classroom turned on. As a result of this session teachers will: (1) Set up a basic Google Classroom; (2) Create an assignment and import a document into either a question, announcement or topical post; and (3) Plan for the use of Google Classroom in their setting.

In the Classroom

The archive of this teacher-friendly, hands-on webinar will empower and inspire you to use learning technology in the classroom and for professional productivity. As appropriate, specific classroom examples and ideas have been shared. View the session with a few of your teaching colleagues to find and share new ideas. Find additional information and links to tools at the session resource page. Learn more about OK2Ask and upcoming sessions here.
