CLASSROOM TIPS FROM COLLEAGUES

NOTE: THESE ARE ONLY IDEAS

Figure out what will work best for you and your students

Teach your students how you organize classroom.

Be consistent.

---------------------------

SUPER IMPORTANT names of GC work that is graded in PS MATCH EXACTLY

Consider adding link to GC assignment to PS

Numbering assignments worked well for many teachers during the closure

Organize your classroom so most current assignments/topics are at the top

 

---------------------------

BANNER (TITLE) for the classroom:

Add online account access/information it if you have a static book or resource the students will be using online to help mitigate… “heey what is the access info again?” emails. It can be done as you generate the class and fill out the “details” section or after the fact by

  • Click on gear in classroom, upper right hand corner

  • Click on details and add information there.

  • Will be part of the expand/pull down arrow in the bottom middle of banner.

---------------------------

POSTING ASSIGNMENTS:

  • Any work that students are expected to turn in should be posted as an assignment with a due date so that it will appear in student's TO DO lists.

  • When adding links, pdfs, clips, etc to an assignment or announcement - upload it Drive first

  • ‚ÄčIf you want the linked items in an assignment to be done in a specific order consider numbering the files in that order OR if you are referring to the linked items in the description be sure to use the exact names of the files OR use a hyperdoc.

  • When posting items such as EDPuzzles that do not register on GC when student completes, post as an assignment and remind students to click “Turned In” when completed so you know to check for that completed work on the other app.

  • If grading assignments on participation once student work is submitted, consider creating an answer key to link in the response to the student when returning the assignment.

---------------------------

NOTIFICATIONS:

  • When teaching students to turn off notifications, do not encourage them to turn them off for all classes.  Let other teachers give that instruction.   

---------------------------

CO-TEACHERS:

  • Take a few minutes at the start of the year and organize 504/IEP case managers, study hall/resource teachers with the students who have them and add those teachers to your classrooms which you have each student. More eyes, more support.
  • Establish expectations between primary teachers, and support teachers with regard to posting, modifying, reorganizing, grading, etc.
