After attending this years MACUL, I have some wonderful things to share with you all. Please see each link below:
If you are interested in checking out some examples of Project Based Learning, similar to that which will be on the M-Step, this is a great site to explore.
Quizizz is a fun multiplayer classroom activity, that allows all your students to practice together. You set up the quiz, the students use any device that can get them access to the site online (through an app or webpage) and they take the quiz in real time, watching stats on the main smart board. Instant feedback! I have tried this myself and it works here with our firewall! Yay! Very easy to set up the quizzes.
This site is awesome! It is printable, current and relevant news stories. But that's NOT all. You can take the same news story and print it at different reading levels! And it's free! There are also quizzes and keys to each passage. Another feature is being able to have the students log in, read the story, and answer short essay questions right online.
You have to watch the video on this one. Pretty amazing!
