This Week's Poll Question/Last Week's Results

What is the grade configuration of your school? Please answer this google form, and feel free to comment further on our Facebook, Twitter, or Voxer accounts.

Website of the Week: Indiana Digital Citizenship Week, September 11-15, 2017

This page from Indiana's Department of Education is full of resources to spotlight Digital Citizenship. Using some of these activities can be a step toward a school or district earning certification from Common Sense Media. There are detailed day-by-day lesson ideas for each grade level range.

Time's Up!

Thanks for your time. Look for the Middle Level Minute every Monday. Coming next week: answer to the poll question, a free trial for Achieve3000, and more! Don't forget: you can connect with us via our website, Facebook, Twitter, and Voxer.
