Have you seen

The Historyteachers on youtube? Hysterical but historically accurate music videos. I always show the King Tut one and the Fleas on Rats one. I know these aren't worksheets but they sure jazz up a...

Yard sales and goodwill

That is where I've picked up most of the realia for my social studies. We also got outdated brochures from a local travel agency. If you have a college in your town, you could contact their...

I agree with Doc

If you can handle a situation with humor, it will generally yield a positive result. Always give the student a way to save face: don't give a command and stare at the student until he does it. Give...

I'm a fan of ClassDojo

I don't know what your tech situation is, but I have a smartboard and an iPad. I project the dojo on the smartboard during work times and then I tap in positive or negative points for observed...
