The Problem of the Disappearing Honey Bee
This Inquiry Based Project that addresses the essential questions, ���What are the biggest problems facing the honey bees today?��� and ���What are the likely impacts of disappearing honey bees?��� Prior to this, students will have researched lists of issues they have found to be significant in the decline of the honey bee, as well as potential solutions. This lesson is the final, culminating project for the unit.
Feedback In Lieu of Grades
My 7th grade ELA students will not receive any marks - only feedback. They will use this feedback, revisions, and evidence of success to grade themselves beginning in the 2016-2017 school year. This binder will be used to explain to parents what we're doing and WHY.

Reading and Coding: STREAMing, and streamlining the process
How learning to read and learning to code go hand in hand.
Resources for a presentation at the International Literacy Conference St. Louis, MO July 19, 2015.
Reading and coding go together like peanut butter and jelly. In our pilot of The Hour of Code campaign this past fall, both teachers and students noticed how coding computers and robots correlated to reading. Teachers first made this discovery when planning by design. Then, teachers wondered if the students would make the same connection and wondered if or how the concept would transfer to reading. During the campaign, reading motivation and accuracy increased not only through teacher observation but also through the developmental reading assessments. When teachers saw this gain they could not help but link reading workshop and coding. Stop teaching reading independently and add a real authentic experience.
