Flocabulary

 
This is a GREAT tool!  I heard about this from another teacher, and had to share!  With all the technology out there - you have so many resources at your fingertips!  The internet alone has a plethora of resources, but you must be driven!  Driven to search out these resources!  This quality will help you stand out in life, and will be impressive!
 
If you are struggling in a subject - search out help!  Whether it is a tutor, another book, or a YouTube video.  When the Supreme Court Justice came in the Fall that is one thing she addressed.  She talked about Physics being a struggle.  So what did she do?  She went to the library and found a book that explained Physics in a different way.  In a way she understood!  That shows initiative and drive!
 
These are your grades!  Do not let a difficult subject stop you, or prevent you from striving for excellence!
 
A great site to help with a struggle is Flocabulary.  They take almost every subject, and use hip hop and rap to review a topic.  I think it is brilliant!  And could be really useful!  They are using different strategies to help students get it!
 
 
You can also search for their videos on YouTube.  To give you an idea here is a video from them.  In World History we are covering the Industrial Revolution, and I showed my students this video.
