The ECAD 3.0 Curriculum provides us with a new version of Build a Town to use in our classrooms. This video quickly reviews both the new game pieces and first-stage debate mechanic, as well as a look at the map and how it might best me used.

A little extra for overhead camera + paper presentation users: some simple animation. After drawing one simple image to to the right (or left) of your paper, trace over all of it that is not being changed for the animation. There you have it, a two-frame animation.

Track your students progress, provide support exactly where it's needed, and provide specific praise - that's what you'll be better able to do following this advice. Provide one marker for each voice, and you'll go quite far. Pair up with No Missing Markers for excellent resource management.

Never lose your markers again, and never spend more than a few seconds not-losing them. Do the colors match? If not, you know exactly who to talk to.

Work Menus allow you to help students choose the work they feel appropriate. Whether it is something easier for students just starting out, or going straight for the challenges, this visual organizer does what it claims. In this video, we review a two-factor work menu, one factor a scale for difficulty, and the other factor being a range of categories in which proficiency must be demonstrated.
