ITMA Project Finished!

Finish lineI am very pleased to announce that my ITMA project is finished. I have turned it in and am just awaiting the feedback.

If you would like to check out the finished product, visit the wiki.

The first thing I thought when I woke up this morning is that I didn’t have to work on the project today because it was finished. I am hoping to enjoy the last couple of weeks of my summer and not work on anything.

  1. This looks very, very good! I think I would learn quite a bit by working through this wiki, and it looks like your directions are clear, concise and easy to follow. I love that you share the standards that teachers would be meeting if they created the lessons for their students. Thanks for sharing this fabulous project. The one question that I have is about the Common Core Standards. You said that they have only identified standards in math and English. However, the document on the common core standards website lists standards for science, social studies, and technical subjects. The document states, "The grades

    6–12 standards are divided into two sections, one for ELA and the other for

    history/social studies, science, and technical subjects. This division reflects the

    unique, time-honored place of ELA teachers in developing students’ literacy

    skills while at the same time recognizing that teachers in other areas must have

    a role in this development as well." I don't know a lot about the standards (yet), but I was excited when I thought I saw them trying to make sure the entire responsibility to teach literacy wasn't being held by ELA teachers alone.

    1. If you look at the site, you can only read Common Core Standards for English and Math. I think they intend to publish standards for other areas. The standards you are seeing when you click through ELA are for literacy in history and science. They haven't published separate standards for history and science knowledge yet.

  2. Congratulations! Perfect timing, too, since I'm planning to incorporate podcasting as an extension of literature circles this year. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Dana, your project is really awesome! It looks smooth and polished – not overdone with bells and whistles, but not sparse, either. Your tone is spot-on, too. You make what you're explaining sound easy without sounding like you're "talking down" to your readers.

    Go you! 😀
