AP Resource: F2016-S2017 - Shmoop
Despite my many please since the beginning of both semesters, most students did not utilize this invaluable resource right away.
After continuing to mention / include Shmoop examples in News Items, Class Bulletin Boards, Smores, and User Links, more and more students began to use Shmoop - especially after the mid-semester point, when they realized that this was the turning point in their grades.
This fall, I plan to assign Shmoop as part of students' first ELO, so that they are forced to sign-up for an account, and to use it as part of their Extra Learning Opportunity credit. My hope is that this initial encounter with Shmoop will set the tone for their use of this resource for the remainder of the semester, and beyond.
In addition to literature resources, Shmoop also has an Essay Lab to help with writing, as well as Word of the Day, College Readiness, AP, SAT, and ACT practice - as well as other disciplines.
F2016 - S2017 - I provided numerous AP Resources to Students' User Links:
GOAL #3: F2016 - S2017 - 100% of Teachers Show Evidence of Utilizing Data Analysis Tools in Order to Improve Student Achievement
This feature was extremely helpful, because the data quickly pointed me to areas for remediation and enrichment in my course, some of which I were unexpected.
As a result, I created additional Smores for remediation and differentiation, which many students took advantage of throughout the remainder of the semester.
