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.
