Students in Ms. McKelder's 8th Grade Science class created "Pinterest" Products to share their knowledge of infectious diseases.
Mrs. Medford's AP Art students created digital products to learn about famous artists. Their goal was to learn about an artist that inspired them or was similar to their artistic style. Students used Piktograph and Smores to create their digital "posters".
Math students in Ms. Belk and Mr. Kapp's class used a variety of digital tools to show what they knew about math concepts.

Did you Know?
- You can share the "Classroom Folder" in your Google Drive with another teacher and give him/her editing rights. Although the shared teacher cannot grade an assignment, he/she can comment on and see the grades for each student and assignment. This should be great for Inclusion/EC classes!
- You can change the point value of an assignment while you're in the grading box. Just change the value and then click outside the box somewhere (don't click Enter!).
- You can share an entire folder of resources with students! Select the folder in your drive and change the share settings to "anyone with the link can view". Post the link to the folder in the "About" Page section.
