I have used buble.us to create a mind-map of ideas for the 3/4 unit on Australia in the 1980’s. This is an easy and effective web2 tool that could be used on an interactive whiteboard when brainstorming with the class.

  1. Hi Mrs R.
    I just mistyped the antispam word and a huge comment was denied. Old age grrrr
    The powerpoint presentation using Steve Jobbs is terrific. I would also encourage everyone to read the Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell which has very good commentary on the value of hard work.
    All of the resources look terrific and congrats on putting together such a rich file.
    We are looking forward to Monday.
    Cheers Mrs M.

  2. Hi Mrs Rutherford, I also enjoyed the powerpoint on how to build students’ understanding of vocabulary. It is so wordsmithing. I love this term. ‘Strategies That Work’ also have a whole chapter on how to improve student’s understanding of words. It is also an easy read.
    I also liked the graphic organiser because it makes thinking clearer and less bogged down in words.
    Regards Mrs Chapman
