I used a program called Inspiration 6 to create this Graphic Organizer for use in my Web Design Class. (I just took a screen shot so it could be saved in a Word format to be viewable without the Inspiration software.) I feel that this would be an excellent way to assist in the planning of the student's personal website. I could really help them to visualize the structure and links.

I thought the Detective Notes would be a great tool to use in my classroom.

I like the How Come graphic organizer. I think next year I will use it once in a while as my target learning goal. It's simple, but it does open up a large range of questions. My students could get in their learning groups. I just go buy those rolls of paper at the Journal and they brainstorm on those. For instance, some of the questions in World History could be: How come somebody like Hitler was able to come to power? How come Hitler invaded Russia when historically it always comes to failure? How was Napoleon able to form a dictatorship after the French Revolution? How come youth in the 1960s were so admanant about changing American society? We are a doing a day of Youth for Human Rights. I will get them into groups and they will brainstorm, How come some governments protect human rights and others don't? The possibilities are endless!

I would use this worksheet on Track Thinking in a reading class for students to use as they are reading a piece of text. I would make sure that I would have modeled these different strategies and that they would be able to practice them one at a time first. This worksheet which I renamed My Inner Voice, would be a great reminder sheet for students.

I thought this would be good to use
when I do my mini unit about apples
around Johnny Appleseed's birthday.

I took the S.C.A.M.P.E.R questions and did a revision more specific to writing. I would use this after having students read an article or peer's work to create revisions.

I thought "Detective Notes" would work in my Religion class curriculum. Attached is an example of how I might use it.

I think the "Fear Gradient" organizer looked interesting. I think we focus so much on achieving goals, that we suppress the fears we have and pick goals that maybe aren't as scary. This could get the students to discuss their fears and why those fears keep them from doing things that they want to do.

At the beginning of the school year and after every quarter this year, we had the JH students complete a goal sheet. I liked the Strengths Assessment questions on page 142 of the text and thought it would be appropriate to include this as students thought not only about goals but also how to achieve those goals. Here's the new goals sheet I think we'll use for this next year.
