When Mrs. Jackie Oberste logged into Nearpod today, she saw this picture of her student's work. Just look at the detail and how she, as a teacher, can view this work all at once.
Big picture
Students in Mrs. Jackie Oberste’s 8th-grade math classes at EJHS used NearPod to analyze math problems completed by their peers while correcting any errors that may have been found. Students would show all their work on the program and then submit their work onto the program. This allowed for quick formative assessments by the teacher and allowed learners to see examples of good work. In addition, students used Nearpod in order to take a formative assessment and track their own learning.

PORT BARRE HIGH

The Port Barre High School PBIS would like to wish Congratulations to the Dynamic Devil Students of the Month for October:

9Th – Evan K. : Evan was nominated because he is always a respectful and polite student. He often helps others, especially in the library with his AP class. Honest is another word to describe Evan – he found money at the Homecoming dance and turned it in.

10th – Parker S.: Parker was nominated because he is always a polite student and is willing to help teachers out. When the students left their litter outside during recess, Parker voluntarily helped Mrs. Theriot pick it up. He was not asked; he saw her doing it and just began to help.

11th – Kim K.: Kimberly is a very polite, sweet student who is always willing to help others. Kim helps tutor at lunch any student who is needing help with Math.

12th – Zoey A.: Zoey is not only a great student but she is always in uniform and has a great attitude. She helps where help is needed throughout the school. She is a good role model for her peers and underclassmen.

Great job to all of these students!!
