I decided that I needed to learn how to create an iTunes U course using the free iTunes U Course Manager. I wanted to understand what went into the creation of a course, and I also wanted something my students can use year after year. As with most 5th grades across the country, I teach colonialism and the American Revolution. One research project I have students complete is about the various battles of the Revolution. So, I created an iTunes U course for the students to use as research materials and project pieces. I also have included the instructions for doing the research in teams of four, graphic organizers, and the instructions for creating a stop motion movie that shares the main points of the battle. So, now I am sharing it with you. Please feel free to use it for yourself and your students. Click on this link and it will take you to the course.
