It’s time to dig through the archives and unearth the best posts from last September in a little feature I call Chasing Content (don’t you just love the pun?)
You can read all of the posts from September 2009 here or you can read through these ones I really like.
Please leave a comment on these posts too. It’s always great to hear from you.
Know Your History – This was the very first installment of the monthly feature I started for DOPEfm. In it, I explore the history of hip-hop culture. Each episode is 30 minutes long and you can download them or read the transcripts on the blog.
I am a bit behind in this series. We’ve aired six episodes. I’ve produced seven, but have only blogged three. Boo! I intend to correct this and have all twelve posted by the end of the year. Stay tuned.
Where are the Desks? – I really throw my students for a loop when I remove all of the desks from the classroom on the first day of school. But I have my reasons … and it really works!
My Top 5 TV Shows – I shuffled my all-time favourite shows around a bit and explained why.
Teaching Tip Tuesday – Map Adventures – I so love this resource. I especially like starting the school year with a mapping unit and this one is awesome.
The Problem With Want – I originally wrote this in my journal and I liked it so much that I rewrote for the blog.
Everyone is a DJ – Whenever you decide to change the radio station in the car, or switch a CD at home, or skip to another track on your MP3 player, you are doing exactly what a DJ does.
