    In preparing for my new position next year as an Instructional Facilitator for primary school, I have been thinking about teacher reflection and how that is not only necessary but how it can help transform the community of teaching when educators are willing and able to share their thoughts and learning openly during PLT meetings. I am curious to know what my fellow educators here on Edmodo believe is a successful reflection tool or practice that I can research and look to implement with my teachers next year. Thoughts and Ideas?

    Fulton County Schools are gearing up to become a Common Sense Media Certified District. I will be guiding Haynes Bridge Middle School through the process of becoming a Certified School! Long overdue! We are very excited to have this resource available.
    • Ms. Sullivan - Fantastic! We would love to hear how you all are integrating district wide! Many districts are now interested in implementing in all their schools and it would be great for them to learn by example! And please let me know if I can provide any support or help (lsullivan@commonsense.org)!

    I am excited to use your Digital Citizenship units in my 6th through 8th grades next year. However, instead of putting 7th and 8th grades together, is it possible to use the 9-12 curriculum for my 8th graders? Is it age appropriate? Do you know of other schools/classrooms that have done this? What did they think?
    • Ms. Sullivan - Hi Ms. Gruoner, we have found that many of the lessons in the 9-12 grade band, are appropriate for 8th graders. There are some fantastic videos in those lessons but I do encourage you to make sure you watch them before showing to your students to make sure the content is appropriate. Some may not be, for example, the video in "Taking Perspectives on Cyberbullying" lesson is more suitable for older students.
      I'm interested to know what other educators think! Has anyone used any of the 9-12 grade lesssons with 8th graders?
