Google It! - Orange Slice Rubrics
Do your students turn papers in via Google Docs or Google Classroom? Next time, try out Orange Slice Rubrics when you grade! This Google Docs add-on allows you to create a rubric that you insert directly into a student's assignment. You can customize the rubric categories, score it, and provide instant feedback!
The teacher always has access to the backchannel conversation and students should be given guidelines for how to participate in the discussion.
I know several teachers have used backchannels. Most recently, I saw Trina Courtney use Padlet in her classroom as a way for students to share vocabulary definitions. As always, I am happy to help you get started or demonstrate what it can look like in your classroom!
