This Week: PARCC begins April 4!

Enhance Teaching. Empower Learning.

Lincoln Tech Updates

Believe it or not, PARCC is only 2 months away! Here are some resources to help you and your students feel prepared. I will include this info in the next several newsletters so you can access it when you are ready.


Test Preparation


All of these links, as well as updated ELA/math online tools videos, are located on Lincoln's website at Student Start > Tech Help > PARCC. A "PARCC Resources" shortcut is also at the top of the Student Start page.


If you would like my assistance with PARCC prep in your classroom, please let me know!
