Welcome to the wonderful world of Ms. Burton
Ms. B. is Online is my personal site that highlights my work as an English I Teacher who integrates technology to bring the real world into the classroom.
I have been teaching since 1996 and I take advantage of every opportunity to integrate technology into my classroom. Using technology allows me to have access to a variety of tools to help a student "see" what I am referring to, so that his/her experience can be richer as we explore their writing potential. My integration of technology also allows my students to create work that shows everyone their creativity and brilliance.
My site is a documentation of the journey that I am on as I seek academic superiority on my part and on their part.
This site, my online ePortfolio, houses: examples, reflections, resources, Tweets, blog posts, work samples, unit plans, etc. I apologize to those of you who are overwhelmed by the color and the movement on the pages. I lovvve to see things 'pop' on my pages. Being able to create projects on the computer has allowed me to be the artist that I am. The freedom of technology has allowed me to fiddle around and find things that I like and things that I don't like. On this site you will see many examples of the things that I like:
to create videos for reinforcement
to design wallwishers that outlines plot elements, solicits comments or critiques literature
to create wordles that identify characteristics
to produce digital stories in response to personal writing prompts or literature/visual writing prompts
The sidebar is your guide and table of contents. You will find information about me and my educational philosophy, as well as examples of various work sites that I have created for numerous reasons: project specific sites, technology training site, personal/class blogs, and much more.
