Northern Region Teacher Shout Out
NORTHERN REGION TEACHER OF THE WEEK: JESSICA LISNICH
CVCS's Ms. Lisnich's AMAZING Read Alongs!
POPCORN WITH MVCA
OHVA HS English teacher: Michelle Boyed
Michelle uses her USA Test Prep benchmark data to guide instruction. Once assessment results are populated, Michelle uses this information to adapt content, and personalize learning to students’ needs. Michelle is skilled at using the Group Management tool in the LMS, and creates learning groups based on her data results. Students receive content that is tailored to where they are in their learning by adjusting the pacing of the course to remediate with the students who need more help, and increasing the rigor for those students who require more extension/enrichment in their learning path.- Julie Leahy
New Lesson Alert: Scientific Method
ISMI's Kristen Williams
MVCA DOES IT AGAIN!
This slide is great in many ways!
- It looks just like a white board in a traditional classroom with dry erase markers to boot!
- The classroom “norms” are posted on the top of the slide and used on several intro slides. (This is helpful especially during the first week of class when you are trying to “set the tone”. These can be visual reminders to the students, like the classroom rules that would be typically posted in a brick and mortar classroom. They are small enough that you can use them on the top of each slide throughout the lesson.)
- White board tools snapshot. (Some students have difficulty locating which tool to use on the WB. It is helpful to take a screenshot of the WB tools, insert them into your lesson, and highlight or point to the tool that needs to be used.)
Many thanks to Allyson Dunn, Sarah Schubring, and Melonie Porubsky!
