Citing Textual Evidence - Prove It!

What Does It Look Like in a Classroom?

How Do I Incorporate Technology?

  • Have students mark a text on the ActivBoard
  • Use Socrative (or a like device or program) to give response to a group text
  • Have students share a current event on OneDrive - choose one for a class discussion
  • Use school eBooks for text - many are simultaneous use - students can mark a text on their own device while the class participates
