New Curriculum Project - Time Travel and Making

2 likes

Hi Zombie-Based Learning backers! 

I'm building a new curriculum this summer. It's called "Making History" and it uses a Time Travel narrative to teach Math, Science, History, and Language Arts. Each project revolves around a major invention or discovery in history. The projects also include "Maker" projects, where students build and create with concepts behind the discovery or invention. Learn more here, it just went live:

Three years ago you showed great support for Zombie-Based Learning. We raised the bar on curriculum, creating an award winning project-based curriculum that both students and teachers love. With this project, I aim to raise the bar again, showing that projects and curriculum can work across subjects, building an even deeper and more memorable learning experience. 

If you don't feel that you can back this project, could you please share it with your friends, fellow teachers, zombie survivalists, Makers, and trusted time travelers? 

Thanks again for all of your support. 

Sincerely,

David Hunter

Brand New Rubric tool from Zombie-Based Learning creator

Hello Zombie-Based Learning Fans, 

Because you’re a fan of ZBL, I’m excited to share that I’ve created a new web-based tool for creating standards-based rubrics in about a minute. And it’s totally free. It’s part of our bigger plan to help teachers easily design quality curriculum like ZBL, and this is just the start!

Here’s the link: www.ThemeSpark.net

Simply select your standards to create your rubric

The official launch of this tool at the EdSurge Tech Summit in Seattle this weekend, but I wanted to give you a sneak peek since you are already familiar with my work. The tool currently has ALL English Language Arts Literacy Common Core Standards, including Reading and Writing for Social Studies. We also have a set of 21st Century Skills you can use for any subject.

Share this with your fellow teachers! Share the rubrics you create with your fellow teachers! Share your feedback with us! 

 I’ll be adding more standards of all different subjects as well as more features, but this is just the first part of a much bigger project we are working on. We are building a suite of tools to allow teachers to quickly and easily create high quality projects with their own themes, just like Zombie-Based Learning. And I’ll also be speaking about this at ASCD in Houston next year. More to come!

Last Day to Help Fund ZBL Comics!

Hey everyone,

The ZBL graphic novel is on its last day of funding. And it needs your help, and your friends' help to get to the goal. I don't want to say it needs to be brought back from the dead but... it's got a ways to go. Share it with everyone you can, and encourage them to share it as well. 

Here is the link again: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hunterd/dead-reckon-the-zombie-based-learning-graphic-nove

Thanks for your support,
