Chasing Content is a monthly feature here on Silent Cacophony.
This is how it works, at the start of each month I look back at the blog entries I posted the previous year in that month and highlight some of my favourites. This gives us a chance to dig through the old posts and unearth some gems that might otherwise get buried in the archives.
It’s now time for the September 2014 edition.
or just these personal favourites.
A great lesson that teaches students that they need to think while they read. It uses a hands-on and is quite visual. It is simply brilliant and a great way to start off the school year.
Still my favourite activity to kick off the school year. Click through and you’ll see why. It’s a bit unconventional but a lot of fun.
I really enjoyed this comic book series and would love to see this version of Spider-Man on the big screen one day. I highly recommend you read it.
I collected a few more autographs last year at Fan Expo. I’m really excited about going back to the event this weekend. Alex Maleev is going to be there this year. I would so love to get his autograph. I probably won’t be able to though since he is doing a signing at the same time at the Doctor Who panel.
Last year was so much fun. This year, the ladies of Doctor Who will be on hand. I can’t wait to see Karen Gillan and Jenna Coleman. Should be a lot of fun!
I’ve used a variation of this plan every year for the past several years and it has never failed. It’s due for a tweaking though. I never just re-use units or lesson. I always strive to improve and build upon past successes.
It’s always nice to look back and see what was. Hopefully this month will be just as good as it was last year.
