Oh, the possibilities!



From Darren
"Here's a cool tool: Answer Tips (see the badge at the bottom of the sidebar). As of right now if you double click on any word on this blog that isn't a link a bubble will appear to teach you something. ;-)"
-- What possibilities!

Answer Tips is now on this blog too (the badge is at the bottom of the page) hoping that it will encourage readers to think of the possibilities--
  • exposing students to new vocabulary in context
  • scaffolding for those who are challenged by reading (you can hear the word!)
  • excellent assistance to English language learners
  • and ---------

Hi Lani,
I know that you are very supportive of student bloggers. I wonder if you have time to visit some more - I will understand if you can't. My year 7s and year9s are both blogging here at school in Australia. The year 7s can be found at http://mrsmac2022.learnerblogs.org and my year 9s are on http://jomcleay.com/year9 . I would so appreciate if you could visit some of the students and leave a comment or two. btw thanks for the heads up on AnswerTips. That sounds great!
