But this really is a good idea…

As a teacher, I know how inundating it can be to have yet another great idea to use in my classroom. The latest, the greatest…oh, the work I did to try to keep up with my teammates or to offer something great to dazzle some parents…

Time and experience has shown me how to incorporate unique ideas not just for the sake of incorporating unique ideas. Let me explain:
By introducing Move Mining Next Gen into your classroom, you are not abandoning your curriculum, your focus on standards, or your very limited student contact time. You are enhancing all of those things.

In having students learn and research the use of minerals in their everyday lives, you are embracing practical research skills to help students make decisions, analyze and communicate their findings. Mixing science, reading, research, writing, speaking, listening, presentation and promotional skills reaches the interest and skill sets of your group of students right now. In the end, your students have a practical application of their learning, a purpose for their work and an audience with whom to share! … and you might just end up dazzling a parent or principal in the process.
