    One of our 4th grade teachers uses a “graffiti wall” to assess students’ knowledge of content such as identifying figurative language, text structure, and main idea. I have also utilized this strategy with Social Studies content. Use chart paper or the whiteboard as a space for students to respond to a topic or question. I have most often…[Read more]

    One of the resources we use to assess is a consensus map. I was introduced to this idea during a Kagan training. There are many ways to use the consensus map. My favorite is to use it during to assess understanding through writing. After being given a question, each student spends a few minutes answering on a post it or small piece of paper. After…

    Kahn Academy is a great resource our Middle School teachers are very fond of given our participation in a grant utilizing the PSAT to measure progress. This provides an individualized path for students to progress through skills.

    One resource that teachers in my school utilize is the website Prodigy. The site has over 1200 math skills for grades 1 – 8. Students have avatars in a virtual world and compete against each other but must first correctly answer math related questions.

    In my paperless classroom I utilize Google Apps for Education every day. Google Classroom is our “home” where they receive and submit their work. Google Forms is great for assessments, especially now because they have a lock down browser enabled to prevent cheating. I am also a big fan of Google Drawings which allows students to get creative with…[Read more]

    I run a paperless classroom in all of my courses including Advanced Placement World History. I have found Fiveable and Get A Five have both been great for students to be able to learn concepts. They incorporate videos and assessments for students, which are instrumental in student success because our content ranges from the dawn of mankind to…[Read more]

    A resource that I would like to start incorporating into my classroom is PearDeck. I had not heard of it until a training a couple weeks ago. It is a Google app that allows you to have interactive Google slide presentations and embedded assessments. Students are given a code to enroll and participate. It is to my understanding that other students…[Read more]

    A resource that I use as well as several other teachers at my school is quizlet.com . This site allows you to create vocabulary “cards” for the topic of study. Then you provide students a link and they can use it to study as flashcards, write them, spell them, and/or do a practice test. You can also provide a given code with quizlet live and the…[Read more]

    Resource

    One resource that has been extremely helpful to my classes this year (and one I had not explored yet) has been Google Classroom. With the on-demand writing test moved online, Google Classroom has allowed students to get in much needed typing practice and has made one-on-one work much simpler for myself. When I create a new assignment,…[Read more]

    Resource.
    I have been a big proponent of case studies throughout my teaching career, as it develops students’ understanding of content through their own research and active problem solving skills. The following link is for a data base of case studies related to the subject of science. These are great and students actually enjoy them.…[Read more]

    Resource #2
    Elementary school stations or centers are important if used correctly. This resource has allowed my teachers to see real-life scenarios that help them make sound decisions on how to use data to determine activities. The book also have various activities that teachers can use in their classrooms for various levels.

    Resource #1
    My teachers have been using quizizz.com and they love this resource. It has quizzes that are already created by other educators as well as the option to create your own quiz. I also have been using this with my teachers in our weekly interactive agendas and they log in and answer their questions for me.

    Resource # 2: The website No Red Ink can help students with writing skills that we don’t often get a lot of time to teach/reinforce/focus on.

Teachers can assign a diagnostic lesson…[Read more]

    Another great resource for science are these books. This week I specifically used the Before, During, and After strategy which really works well to help with modeling in science. Students first did individual illustrations of the concept then I had them chose their best representation from the each group to add to the board. Once we had a…

    I wanted to share a site that was shared with me concerning Kentucky’s academic standards. As many of you may already be aware, there is a site available to explore the newly adopted Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) and standards resources. If you look on the “Explore your Standards” page, you will find a downloadable PDF and a critical fact…[Read more]

    One science tool that I love are these misconception books. Just when you think students really understand something your mind is blown. They can be used in so many ways!

    I tried to start my own challenge since so many are silly these days. I was calling it the Formative Assessment Challenge. You do a challenge then get pics of your students engaging in it and post online. Thought it would be a great way to share strategies with each other. I had a tiny bit of success but if anyone on here would like to…[Read more]

    Someone said that the 8th and 10th On Demand was all online? Is this accurate?
