Ms. Manzella's Technology Toolbox
Tools for the ELA Classroom
Welcome to Honors American Literature!
a communication tool that helps teachers reach students and parents where they are.
ClassDojo offers a beautiful classroom management platform for teachers to easily encourage any behavior or skill in the classroom and keep parents in the loop.
Plickers is a powerfully simple tool that lets teachers collect real-time formative assessment data without the need for student devices
"Why Do We Need To Know This?"
Class Dojo is the school-wise behavior management tool! Aside from the fact that each student will have a cute, cuddly monster as an avatar, it's incredible effective along with our PBIS implementation for discipline. Students and Parents can log into the classroom dojo and check to see how many points they were awarded or they lost each and every day!
Plickers is an application I will implementing constantly throughout the year. It's a quick way to assess student learning and updates in real time to allow students to be able to see their progress in accordance with the class as a whole. I will be also be sending out individual student reports from the Plickers app whenever I send home parent communicative items (report cards, parent notes, etc).
There will be lots of ways we implement technology this year, but these are going to be our guiding lights and best forms of open communication. During the first week of school, I will be sending home an information card with the appropriate sign up information for parents and students!
Here's to a wonderful year, 11th graders! (:
