ELAR Updates:

  • Writing: The K-5 4th Nine Weeks Writing is now available in Eduphoria Forethought. Writing samples and conferring videos have been added!
  • Reading: We have created a document that gives teachers some guidance on how to use technology for grouping students based on the cluster pre-assessments; as well as how to use technology to create formative assessments. This document will be linked in cluster 7, however we wanted you to have it now. Please review Tools for Grouping Students and Creating Formative Assessments.
  • The 5th Grade Testing Genre has been added to cluster 6 in Eduphoria Forethought.
