Sat, Feb 27, 2021 9:37 AM in Online learning in rural areas
This is an older post, so I hope that all is going well for you. I teach elementary in a rural county. What we did in spring 2020 is different from what we have been doing this school year.
Last spring when schools closed and they had to come up with a plan for something no one ever fathomed, my district subscribed to an online teaching website for the last three month...

Sat, Feb 27, 2021 9:24 AM in Distanced Learning and Student Motivation
Since it's February, you've been at student teaching for two months. I hope it has been going well! I'm a hybrid teacher at my school. Most of my second graders are on Zoom but some are also in the room with me. Our school loves dress up days, so we have plenty of those. For my own class's motivation, though, we have ClassDojo goals...

I'm a hybrid teacher at my school. Most of my second graders are on Zoom but I do have a few in the classroom with me. As we get closer to spring, you know what that means - State Testing! Woo!

Sun, Mar 14, 2021 9:19 AM Coral Reef Ecosystem Review
Somehow I made it to adulthood without knowing how ALIVE coral reefs are. Needless to say, this e-book was packed with information. The subtopics concerning coral diversity, species diversity, and human-caused reef stress were my favorite. I consider myself an environmentally conscious person, but living in a landlocked state, I've never really thought about human impact on reef ecosystems. There was definitely a lot to learn in those sections. Overall, I enjoyed the interactive portions of this e-book. It was very handy to be able to click on a key word and get the definition, and the interactive "iPad" games were neat. My feedback would be: Below the e-book where it lists the table of contents, I think there should be page numbers so that you have an idea of how long each section is. I also think it would be helpful to know how many subsections are in the section. That way a reader can plan for how long they can sit down and read. I ran into trouble activating the final assessment. I went through and redid all the mini review quizzes and then the final assessment appeared. I don't know if that was a glitch or if I overlooked a quiz the first time. So perhaps there could be some sort of checklist for which mini review quizzes were completed so that a person can see if they accidentally missed one. This was an interesting e-book, and I do recommend choosing this one to read.
