10 great tools for education: Day 4

The first two days of this series focused on tools that are useful to all educators. Day three was dedicated to tools to help keep parents and students informed. Today's post will feature one resource that is social studies related and one that could apply to everyone.

The social studies resource is called Docs Teach and is produced by the National Archives. Docs Teach is an excellent web based resource that teachers can use to create their own interactive learning activities based on primary source images and documents. This site is a must see for all social studies teachers and it is free to use. 

The second site I am sharing is called Good Reads. Good Reads allows its users (members) to keep track of what they are reading, form book clubs with other members, and will even recommend books based on what you have read. It is a social network for avid readers and a useful "next book" site for everyone.

I hope you have an opportunity to try out these and the other sites I have shared. Please check back to see what's in store for tomorrow.
