Life-Long Learning

My name is Elizabeth and I have my secondary Teaching Certificate in English. I hope you've found this page resourceful and thought-provoking thus far!

I don't post a lot of my own content, but rather use this as a space to find and store resources and ideas in the world of education!

The posts and content of this page are my own beliefs and opinions and do not in any way reflect the views of my employers, district, or any related parties.


Some stuff we all need to remember this time of year…


This is a thematic idea umbrella!

I use it to help my students differentiate between thematic ideas, which we begin to recognize early in our reading, and themes, of which there may be several and which may not be clear until later in a story or novel.

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day.

How To Use Crowdsourcing in the Classroom

Crowdsourcing is an important information literacy skill. This is important for students because the idea of crowdsourcing will allow them to utilize personal learning networks to gain a diversity of opinions, find outside experts and use the wisdom of a network or crowd to find more thorough answers and ask better questions.

Students can develop these important skills by being allowed to crowdsource their learning. When they need something more than our classrooms can provide, they need to know how to find it. They need to be allowed to work together and to use the internet to form very important personal learning networks.
