Hey all –

I will post a series of these to introduce you to some quality “innovative resources” you may be able to use. Please feel free to write your OWN “Innovative Resources” post to share with your peers! You have access to so many fantastic resources that could benefit yourself and others. We will be able to refer back to these for years to come.

Make sure to select “innovative resource” as a tag to make them easier to find.

Check out these virtual labs by McDougal Little – I studied one pretty in-depth and think it looks GREAT!!

They span a wide variety of topics and seem to have an inquiry focus… (though clearly guided and with one right answer) – how might you move it along the continuum to give students MORE ownership?
