VoiceThread of the Month: January

Each month for the 2014-2015 school year, we will be accepting submissions for a “VoiceThread of the Month”. Each month, we will ask for an entry based on a different theme along with a link to submit the work when it’s complete.

If your submission is chosen as our winner, and your school doesn’t already have a license, you will win a free license for a year!

The winning selection for each month will also be added to a special section in our digital library so everyone can see the great work you do.


For January, the theme is:

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day


Do you discuss the impact Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had on American history?

Do you discuss the civil rights movement with your students?

Do your students study the “I Have a Dream” speech?

Then turn those discussions into a VoiceThread and submit it using the link below.

Here’s how it works:

The submission can be either student or teacher created.

We are looking for conversations, not just presentations.

The VoiceThread will be judged on these 3 criteria:

1. Comment Quality– all comments should add value to the content of conversation.

2. Visuals– all images/documents/videos should be appropriate, interesting, and properly sourced.

3. Comment Quantity– more people engaged in the conversation means more points of view.
