10 FREE Downloads; New Year's Resolutions for Teachers; Holiday Items‏

What are your New Year's resolutions for your teaching in 2012? See this week's TPT newsletter to find out about other teacher's resolutions, and to see this week's 10 FREE Downloads. There are a lot of great downloads for secondary education this week, but my favorite was the "Blown-Up Essay: Holiday Edition" by Arik Durfee. In the activity students take an essay that has been cut up or "blown up" and try to put it back together in groups. It looks like a fun activity to do before the winter break. If you are a French or Spanish teacher, you could use this same idea in your class by taking a text in the target language about the holidays in a French or Spanish speaking country, and have students try to put it back together.
