School Spotlight: New Milford High

Mrs. Keesing, the Library Media Specialist at New Milford High School in New Milford, NJ,  collaborated with World History teacher Ms. Perna on a Glogster EDU project designed to engage 9th grade students in their Monarchs of Europe unit.

As the students were finishing their unit, Mrs. Keesing provided them with their login information and basic instructions for using Glogster EDU.  Students chose one of the monarchs they studied to highlight in their Glogs.  Among the elements to include were the following: name of monarch and monarchy; image of monarch; description of monarch’s residence; monarch’s proudest achievement; and a comparison illustrating the superiority of the chosen monarch over a rival monarch.  Some students embedded a video clip to enhance their project.

Here are a few of the final projects. Click on the image to view the full size Glog.

Pretty snazzy, eh? Thank you to Mrs. Keesing, Ms. Perna, and principal Eric Sheninger for showing us how New Milford uses Glogster EDU.

How does your school use Glogster EDU? If you’ve got a great lesson plan idea or just want to show off your students’ masterpieces, we’ll feature you in the next “School Spotlight.” Let us know in the comments!

  1. I teach a Careers and Personal Finance class to 7th graders. After learning about the job interview process, I had the students create glogs showcasing all the tips they learned about what to do and what not to do. Some of them turned out really great!

    • Students could even use the video feature to record a mock interview (or do an interview in which they do all the dont’s — that could be fun)! Do you have any examples you could share?
