Ed Tech Tips with E. Mosier
Make your classroom more E-fficient!
Exciting News for Your Classroom!
So, how does it work?
If you're doing a Current Events lesson, or want a short lesson plan to round out a unit or the end of a week, reading and analyzing articles online from the NY Times is a perfect solution! A great advantage is, each student can log in using their Chromebook, complete and assignment in Google Docs, and then Share it with you! This will alleviate the stack of old newspapers piling up! Or, they can simply log in for some silent reading time, and peruse the articles that interest them most. Plus, not a penny will be spent by anyone on any of the editions!
Resources Available within the E-Edition
Once in, there are several resources available for both students and teachers. You may choose to use these or not, but they are included with the Sudlow subscription!
