If you’ve ever thought about being a teacher, you might want to think about one of the following ideas for your #20Time project. If being a teacher is last on your list, you still might find them interesting:
- Using a lesson-planning template found online, create lessons around standards-based films. For example, you could create a whole lesson around “The Day After Tomorrow” or “GasLand. They could either be simple viewing guides for substitute teachers (in which case you’d have to completed several films) or create a whole unit around a single film. Then, post your lessons on TeachersPayTeachers and maybe make a bit of cash!
- Plan and execute a class field trip.
- Generate a series of labs/hand-on activities to do in class–you could even connect with the early-childhood education people and teach those kids a bit about science. Then, post your lessons on TeachersPayTeachers and maybe make a bit of cash!
