    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 reflection from my theory of action plan.
  • **Final Post** I would like to thank KVEC for allowing our school to introduce coding and robotics through the Innovation Grant.

It brought awareness to how coding and robotics are used in society and really sparked interest in future…[Read more]

    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.

    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]

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]
