A few years back I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in an online media production professional development toolkit for middle school educators. Vulcan Productions teamed up with Education Development Center to create Success at the Core. Registering for free at their site gives you access to videos and resources of teachers teaching cool lessons as well as school leadership and planning teams. I taught a lesson as part of my 8th grade Earth Science unit on density and Success at the Core made a cool segment on exploring predictions (this link takes you to my lesson on predictions) as part of their inquiry series!
Success at the Core is well worth exploring and sharing with your teachers and admin. And you can’t beat free!
