So glad I made it home in time tonight to login to Teachers Teaching Teachers and join the conversation on teaching about Haiti and its devastating earthquake.
New York Times Learning Network editor Katherine Shulten shared the dynamic resources she and her co-editor are developing for the Teaching and Learning with the New York Times site. Check out 5 Ways to Teach About Haiti, and the new lesson plan: Project Haiti: Holding a Teach-In.
Other resources shared from the chat room included:
- Kid4Haiti wiki – from NYC elementary teacher Lisa Parisi
- 4haiti.litcircuits.com – from 6th grade teacher Jared Benne
- Teaching about Haiti – from Rethinking Schools
- Best Sites to Learn about the earthquake in Haiti – from Larry Ferlazzo
Despite audio issues with Skype, tonight’s TTT session was too good to end. So mark your calendars for next Wednesday because Katherine Shulton has agreed to join hosts Paul Allison and Susan Ettenheim for a second session on teaching about Haiti. Katherine invites us all to visit the above resources and to bring questions and suggestions to next week’s session.
How are you and your colleagues teaching about Haiti?
