Google It! - Google Classroom
Several of our teachers are using Google Classroom this year. One feature you may or may not know about is that students can create their Google Docs directly from your Google Classroom assignment. Classroom will automatically add the student's name to the end of the document title, making it even easier to organize and keep track of assignments.
Ever heard of ClassHook? This useful resource is a collection of videos clips that can be used as attention-getters during a lesson. Take a look at some of the clips they have to offer: http://www.classhook.com/all_clips, organized by topic. If you create a FREE account, there are quite a few more to choose from.
Here's an example of a poetry hook from ClassHook.com, from The Blind Side. Michael Oher connects the poem, "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Alfred Lord Tennyson, to football and relates it to courage and honor.
