    I'm looking for a small Grade 8 class to discuss current events with here on Edmodo. I only have 30 Grade 8 students who are from all around the world so, that's the magic number I'm looking for. If you're interested please let me know!
    • Fru White - Hello Mr. McQuaid. I teach a grade 8 class in ABerdeen, SK Canada and have 30 students. We have an edmodo group called "Grade 8 international" where classes from USA, Norway and Guadalupe contribute to sharing reactions to posts we (the American teacher and I) post each week. Would you be interested in joining in the fun?

      • Igår
    • Herr McQuaid - Mrs.White, Yes! I would love that, could you send me the info darren@kkfs.org with the group code?

    This State of the Map conference on Open Mapping (http://stateofthemap.us/) looked interesting. I plan on following the Twitter account and live tweeters.

    Live tweeting is a great way to follow conferences that you have an interest in but cannot attend. I'll be honest, it's a skill I don't have. It's also a great way to find people to follow on Twitter and build your network.

    Mr. Epstein, I don't know if there is a youth/student track but I think it's something you should look into. You do a lot of interesting things with your students and the open source mapmakers need to hear from users.

    ISIS is becoming a more and more important issue by the day and something that students should be informed about. I just read this incredibly detailed and illuminating article about ISIS in the Atlantic (below) but it's much too long for use in most classrooms. Does anyone have an effective but more concise resource on ISIS that students could benefit from?

    China is in the midst of one of the largest, most rapid, most significant transformations of any place in the history of the world. I just read two great books on this subject by Peter Hessler that I would recommend to anyone interested in the subject. River Town is about his experiences in the small town of Fuling as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1996. Nat Geo also published an article about his return to Fuling in 2013 and the incredible changes he encountered there. The other book, Oracle Bones, relates the story of several specific individuals living the transformation in real time, including some of his former students, and also provides some interesting insight into the history of language in China as well as the Cultural Revolution. Do you have any other great resources that would help students to develop a picture of China's transformation?

    • Fröken Frankel - Those books are outstanding, I agree. Have you seen the documentary "Up the Yangtze"? It is about the dramatic changes created by the construction of the Three Gorges Dam, and focuses on some teenagers who work on cruise ships on the Yangtze River. Here's the link on IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1114277/ Looks like it's available on Amazon instant video for a few dollars.

    • Herr Carlson - Thanks Ms Frankel- great resource! I can't wait to watch. I also just began reading Age of Ambition by Evan Osnos, which one a Booker Prize this year and covers similar content. so far, so good!

    I'll be facilitating several GLOBE PD opportunities this spring/summer including a Train-the-Trainer in April. GLOBE is an international environmental monitoring project that provides standardized, classroom friendly protocols to monitor hydrology, soils, atmosphere, phenology, and land cover (excellent mapping tie-in).

    Great activity to introduce just about any topic in a classroom.

    My students face test anxiety. Do you have any videos strategies etc. to combat this?
    • Fröken Naimey - Sometimes I just don't call it a test. They seem to link the word test to bad feelings, so I call them assessments, or something else, and then they don't have the same degree of anxiety.

    • Herr Hasty - Thanks.

    • Herr Carlson - Practice. Start with a couple of low-stakes tests so that they can get a feel for what will be expected of them before moving on to a major assessment.
