Faster Feedback: Create Editing Shortcuts in Google Docs

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Since I published Stop Taking Grading Home, Ive had a ton of teachers ask me how I am able to give feedback on Google Docs so quickly.
  • I give real-time feedback to ~8 students in a 25-minute station.
  • I also keep the scope of my feedback narrow, so I am not trying to correct everything in one real-time editing station.
  • Heres how… – – I hope this tip helps other teachers provide feedback on student writing more efficiently!
  • If you have a strategy you use to provide feedback or assess student work, please share it!

    Batik Njawani: the art and craft of an online business

    [/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

    • Why did you decide to create an online presence for your business?
    • Before going online, our business relied on a few customers who were familiar with us.
    • After we established our Google My Business listing, an order was placed for 6,000 key chains and 6,000 hair pieces for an international arts festival in Belgium.
    • Our online presence provides a steady stream of customers, which in turn lets us keep our artisans in steady employment.
    • The Internet helps us build trust with potential customers who are unfamiliar with our brand, but are reassured by the positive reviews they read on Google My Business.

    How can we successfully meet the needs of the children we teach? via @TeacherToolkit

    • Then I would look for opportunities to tackle the outcomes from other year groups or Key Stage by finding relevant topics that I could cross map in.
    • My success criteria were aimed at a rough three levels within the class so with green being what they could all achieve and what I was aiming for my bottom ability learners to do, the orange one for my middle group and my red for the most able.
    • Sometimes I had tables that were roughly of similar levels, they were made up of mixed year groups, at other times they were the opposite.
    • So plan for using support in a creative way ensuring that you target your time, and their time, with learners in the most strategic way possible.
    • A toolbox of targeted activities is a great way of teaching either key skills or outcomes.

    Powerful Ways to Teach About Hunger to Your Middle School Students

    [/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

    • Three out of four teachersreport seeing students arrive at school hungry on a regular basis, and on average, we spend approximately $300 of our own money feeding our students because we know that kids cant learn as well if theyre hungry.
    • Provide them with some of the staggering facts about childhood hunger in the United States and then ask your students how they might share this information with their peers.
    • Spend a class period learning about different people your students age who are experiencing hunger.
    • While having the students actively imagine what it might be like to experience hunger is powerful, we cant ignore the fact that we still have curriculum that needs to be addressed and standards to meet.
    • By making childhood hunger part of our lessons, it brings it out of the dark and raises our students awareness of the problem while still allowing us to teach our curriculum.
