Film in the Classroom Thanks to the Learning Network from The New York Times

The New York Times' Learning Network is a must-have for any classroom teacher at any grade level for any content area.  It includes a multitude of lessons on all subject areas, graphic organizers, templates, additional resources, incredible websites...and everything is free.

FILM + CONTENT=POWERFUL INSTRUCTION  Every lesson or activity found here is linked to the common core standards.  In fact, the NYT considers itself a partner with teachers in implementing the common core through all grade levels.  Everything offered here is free including subscribing to their blog.  Teachers may also access lessons by subject category (16 groups are listed).  Here is also a link with suggestions on how to use this incredible tool:  HOW TO USE THIS BLOG.

BIOLOGY IN FILM:  USING ANIMATION TO STUDY CELL STRUCTURE
For biology teachers, this is an amazing link.  Though the lesson is meticulously planned out, the animation on CELLS is breathtaking.  The details are amazing.  Students, especially ELLs, in watching the clip will develop a deeper knowledge of what the inner components of cell structure.  Textbooks can not capture this type of detail (from Harvard University).  This should be part of every biology lesson in cells.  Here is the animation clip by itself:  CELL STRUCTURE.

Inspire students with a new way at looking at course content material.  Learning can indeed be fun:)
