Hi Member,
Looking for a few great lesson ideas for the last few days of school?  Leading your students in an end-of-year research project?
 
We think you’ll love these video lesson guides we’ve developed with Common Sense Media.  Full lesson plans are included with each one.
 
There are nine videos in the series; I'll get you started with three that will help teach your students Internet research skills in three steps.

3. Use It
As we work to support students in developing speaking and presentation skills, how do we help them understand the role of media in delivering a message with impact?
