As second-graders start to recognize more of the outer world’s subtleties and expand their inner world’s imagination, it’s important to have energizing educational lessons that match that growth. The Learning Library’s resources for second-graders are catered to their specific level, where academic concepts become more refined. Among the resources are informational games that make learning feel like playtime, lesson plans developed by licensed educators, and other participation-based activities that support engaged learning.

Available online activities teach kids how to properly use an apostrophe, measure length in inches, compare two subjects, and more. For more visual learners, games like Sentence Builder: Adjectives and Adverbs teach second-graders the difference between adjectives and adverbs by helping Floyd, a purple dog, build a wall up a rugged peak. Children can practice the practical skill of counting money with a digital piggy bank or try out other popular games.

Teachers, tutors and parents can confidently teach new topics with thought-out lesson plans and worksheets. Printable workbooks allow for a closer inspection of grammar, math, spelling and other topics. These are just a few of the many useful tools the Learning Library provides to ensure second-graders continue to build upon nuts and bolts.

## 3 online resources prospective boat buyers should bookmark

As someone who works in the boating industry, you probably do everything you can to have a bright and inviting showroom with plenty of beautiful boats on display, as well as a dedicated team of salespeople who can help your customers into the watercraft of their dreams. While you definitely do a great job enticing your customers and getting them excited about buying and owning their own boat, it is also a good idea to supply them with online resources that they can use to help educate themselves and learn more about their new hobby.

The following three websites are all fantastic tools for prospective boat owners:

### Take Me Fishing

As you know quite well, owning a boat is about much more than storing it at a local marina&mdashit&rsquos about getting out on the open water and doing the activities you enjoy. With this in mind, if your customers mention how much they enjoy fly or fresh water fishing, refer them to the takemefishing.org. In addition to featuring a handy search engine that allows visitors to the site to see a comprehensive list of places to fish in their own state, Take Me Fishing also has a helpful list of the Top 100 places to boat and fish in the country. This way, if your customers are new to the entire boating experience, they can use the list to narrow down their search of where they should go.

Also, if they are taking their new boat out of state, they can also refer to the list and try out some new locations.

As part of the sales process, you probably already remind your customers that they will need to get a boating license in order to legally operate their new watercraft. This might elicit groans and eye rolls, as your customers envision long lines at the local Fish and Game Department&mdashmuch like they have experienced when registering a car at the DMV.

Assure your potential boat purchasers that they can skip the time consuming process of getting their license in person by visiting boatinglicense.com. The website allows people to take a boater safety course, all from the comfort of home. The online course goes over many of the basics like navigation rules, the importance of wearing a life jacket and the dangers of boating while intoxicated.

At the end of each of the online chapters, visitors to the website will take a 10 question quiz. If they pass it with a score of 80 percent or higher, they can move onto the next chapter. Once they successfully pass the course, people can print out a temporary boater education card, a permanent card will be snail mailed to them as well.

## 50 Tips for your Course Design

A lesson plan refers to a detailed step-by-step guide for a teacher to understand what materials to give and how to provide them to help students accomplish learning goals during the course.

The process outlined below draws on some of the cornerstone steps of instructional design:

All the tips below and more can be found in our printable instructional design cards.

### Step #1: Conquer your subject

It may seem obvious, but the best teachers have an in-depth knowledge of their subject, and this has a significant impact on students’ learning and enjoyment.

You can’t teach something if you do not have more knowledge than your students. You must be an expert on it.

Study everything available on your subject and then brainstorm all the topics and subtopics you would like to include in the course.

Conquering a subject also comes along with setting the learning goals and coming with a great course title.

### Step #2: Understand your learners

Learning involves a change in competence, ability, understanding, attitude, belief, or whatever.

To achieve that, you must know your students very well to help them go from point A to point B.

Therefore you need to assess what students already know about your subject and what their motivation is for learning.

How experienced are they as students? Have they taken a similar course before? Do they have course requirements completed?

You also need to know their preferences, their differences, and also allow them to suggest adjustments for your course.

### Step #3: Organize your course syllabus

Now it is time to put your objectives and units into an excellent plan.

Are there enough challenging unit blocks your students would love? Have you unrooted words, graphics, pictures, or music that do not support your instructional goals?

Refining your learning content is always extremely important.

### Step #4: Refine your instructional style

Adults need to feel accepted, respected, and supported within an atmosphere that is friendly and informal. This is why you must take extra care of your instructional style.

There are several ways to make such a good impact on your students:

• Using conversational language: People work harder to understand the online resources when they feel they are conversing with a partner.
• Humor reduces stress and frustration and motivates students, and gives them a chance to look at their circumstances from another perspective.
• Using Ice-Breaker activities: Those are person-focused activities that induce synchronous or asynchronous discussions at the beginning of a course.
• Those and many other strategies are available in our handbook I am giving you next!

### Step #5: Content Ideas

Apart from teaching everything right, it is crucial to make student learning more authentic.

What is authentic learning?

It is skills-based learning in a real-life context, demonstrating to students that their knowledge is connected, relevant, and can impact the world around them and their future selves.

That means your material should include many worked-out examples, what-if scenarios, success stories, demonstrations, contradictory situations, practice activities, case studies, interviews, and many more.

### Step#6: Boost learning performance

What are the next steps for your course design?

Enhancing student learning results. To achieve that, there are specific techniques you can use:

• Teach prerequisite knowledge/skills
• Underline progress and encourage learners
• Repeat necessary steps more than once
• Give intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and a lot more…

We have valuable tips to share with you for all those six steps:

50 instructional design tips that come in the form of 50 unique cards!

There are many ways you can use those cards. You can choose those you like most, put them in the order you want, and follow them as a roadmap for your course design.

Or you can hang them above your desk and keep an eye on them each time you find yourself struggling for the next step.

## Writing for the Web & Print

One woman devoted two hours to research and gather ideas. She tracked down many more than 10 concepts giving her the best titles. And while writing each article, she again took a few short moments to unearth more findings, which filled any blanks. Due to her newfound focus, she was able to write with speed and enjoyment.

Sound familiar? I understand.

Here are some helpful online writers resources that will keep you relaxing in your favorite slippers.

Research Wikipedia first and you can dig up a goldmine of content ideas. What a time-saver. It’ll have you wondering, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Wikipedia boasts millions of pages satisfying almost all possible topics in hundreds of languages. Articles have links you can follow connecting you to more writers resources online. Launched by Jimmy Wales in January 2001, it has rapidly become one of the largest archives of human knowledge on the web. Volunteers from around the world contribute free information daily.

What are the best ways to use this colossal encyclopedia?

Simply search your topic. For example, searching for “dog food” reveals everything you want to know… including wet and dry dog foods, manufacturing methods, differences between less and more expensive brands, etc. You might discover recalls from 2007 which help prove your claims.

A wealth of knowledge from everyday people around the globe is found at Wikipedia. But what makes it great is also it’s downfall. Because it is a free encyclopedia that anyone can edit, it isn’t always accurate.

I suggest letting it point you in the right direction. Then, double-checking the accuracy of the information elsewhere. With additional research, you can easily overcome its flaw and obtain valuable, unbiased content.

If you haven’t surfed already, “jump in, the water’s great!” You’ll find help with everything from stay-at-home moms, sailing, and zoology… to language, knitting, web design… you name it!

Searching is easy. From its homepage, you can browse general channels, explore specific topics, or see what’s hot now. And About is a trusted online writers resource. Hundreds of expert guides share their knowledge daily. The information is accurate, up-to-date, unbiased, easy to read, straight to the point, plus entertaining.

A little history… About is owned by The New York Times Company and is one of the top 15 content sites. Topic experts are carefully selected from a group. So you can feel comfortable using About as an authoritative writers resource.

Whatever you want to learn, and write about…

3. “The Internet Pubic Library” (www.ipl.org):

Last, but certainly not least.

You’ll find relevant, authoritative content at the first public library for the internet community.

The Internet Public Library has a large selection of subjects. Organized by topic, it has useful descriptions and links to hundreds of essential web sites. The library is a collection of online resources that are organized by subject, everything from accounting to social sciences. Click on “spotlight features” and, depending on the time of year, you can browse information about black history.

…the coolest part – a popular question-and-answer service for researchers, and access to a wide range of digital library collections and exhibits. Visitors can ask a reference question. Volunteer librarians and graduate students in library and information science form collections and answer questions.

…a Reading Room category with magazines and newspapers that are a gold mine for the article writer.

…standard library services such as references, cataloging, exhibits, government documents, special collections, archives.

…online-only services such as a list of blogs.

…references which include almanacs, encyclopedias, “Strange and Unusual Dictionaries,” “Vocabulary” (links to Web pages or phrases to online references like dictionaries), even a Chinese Characters Dictionary.

This 24/7 online library is an excellent place to research. The librarians and information industry professionals who’ve created it have spent a great deal of time organizing the best internet resources for your use.

The Internet Public Library is hosted by Drexel University College of Information Science and Technology, and is run by the IPL Consortium–a group of 15 colleges.

And as for those two women…

One saved time by searching online writers resources before she attempted to write. She was rewarded with loads of ideas. And made surprising progress with less stress.
