The Best Resources for Middle Schools


Museum Box – Museum Box is a site that provides the tools for teachers and students to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual box. What items, for example, would you put in a box to describe your life; the life of a Victorian Servant or Roman soldier; or to show that slavery was wrong and unnecessary? You


can display anything from text files, PDFs, videos, images, even a webcam video or audio recording that you can produce right on the site. You can also view and comment on the Museum Boxes submitted by others. Middle School students will love using this site because it makes learning engaging and fun. (learn more about Museum Box in the elementary school section and in the video linked below)

One Word – One Word is a very simple and elegant quick-write solution for students. The site offer a one word prompt and gives the student 60 seconds to start writing. This is a great way to fight writers-block and make writing a little more fun


as the words are usually really interesting and offer lots of room for students to get creative. This is a great site, especially for Middle School students of all academic performance levels. Super simple to use, I feel like the slogan for the site should be Just do it! - But I guess that one is already taken. (http://oneword.com/)


Paper Rater – Paper Rater is a web tool that offers a robust grammar checker to find mistakes and correct them. It can also check to see if a students paper contains plagiarized text. Most recently, the site has added a feature that will try to


make suggestions so that students can actually improve their work. In a world where some students need a little extra help with their writing or some guidance as to how to be a good digital citizen and not lift information in the improper way, Paper Rater is a wonderful tool for Middle Schoolers in and out of the classroom - plus it is easy to use as well.
