How I Use It
Zoom In is a website that has ready to teach lessons that help engage students on a deeper level. I primarily use Zoom In to help show the students primary and secondary sources about a subject. However, after exploring zoom In has much more to offer. It has been complete lessons from beginning to end. Once you sign up, you have access to whole lessons that you can take bits and pieces from or use whole lessons.
My Take
The students didn't particularly follow the website well. However, I believe this tool is best served by a teacher taking this resource and making it their own. The students were engaged and really enjoyed seeing documents about certain events. My favorite thing about the website is the endless amount of information about certain subjects. As a teacher my main complaint the lessons are very specific about specific subjects. If you are teaching that particular content it works really well for you. But I wish there was more generalized information ie. WWI, Industrial Revolution, etc.
