My Management Skills

2020/2021 Schoology and Weekly Agendas

This year I utilized our new online platform and found great ways to organzie assignments, content, lessons, stations and more. Students particpated in novel discussions as well as dropboxed assignments from their Drive.  With schoology I was able to add addtional resources such as Ed Puzzle and Brain Pop right into the platform that enabled me to grade through schoology that would automatically put it in the gradebook. With remote learning this year  I also found it useful to create  Weekly Agendas for students to follow. Whether students were remote or in class it became very handy. If a student had to be out they could follow the agenda to know what needed to be done for that day, so they would not get behind. Below is a link to all of the Weekly Agendas I created for the year.
