JoDee Luna and her students have been wowing us for awhile. We first got to know JoDee when she was among the first teachers to try out The Word Up Project in her school district. With her above-and-beyond teaching skills and passion, she’s been getting pretty amazing results right from the start. JoDee sent us a few examples of her creative Word Up lessons and student examples, and we recently featured one entrepreneurship lesson on this blog (and on our office wall.)
We’ve known for awhile that JoDee’s strategies would help other educators in our community use Flocabulary in a more effective and fun way. And so we’re pleased to announce that JoDee will now be sharing her ideas and lessons on the Flocabulary blog. You can find her first post here.
JoDee teaches “READ 180” classes. She throws her whole creative being into her classroom, where she has crafted a digital media-rich program to spark a passion for the power of words and images in at-risk middle school kids. Her educational website provides flash animated learning games for students and resources for educators.
She received her master’s in education from California State University, Bakersfield, and creates innovative professional development courses integrating literacy, technology and the arts. As a visual blogger, Luna joins inspirational posts together with vibrant photography and art. Her creativity website, provides instructional videos, how-to lessons, creativity tips and inspirational posts.
