Teaching Without a Textbook
The goal of the workshop is to present alternatives to the traditional textbook as doable resources and learning experiences that will easily fit into lesson planning. The section on documenting new media is meant to offer a resource for giving class blogs, wikis, and web pages a larger role as part of classroom curriculum and to demonstrate how they meet state standards and other criteria. Teaching Without a Textbook is designed to be interactive and collaborative, with opportunities for teachers to share their experiences in the classroom. Discussion and sharing of resources, tips, and learning experiences is encouraged.
