This year, the Instructional Partner team will be supporting teachers as they foster the development of the 4 Cs of 21st century learning— communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity-- in classrooms school wide.
Today, I want to take a quick look at on our own communication with students and revisit two, free and easy ways to be even more amazing at letting students know we care and that we're in this for them, while requiring very little effort. Just check out my cheer uniform below...not a single squat required!
2. Google Classroom- Classroom is more than just a tool for distributing and collecting assignments; use the stream to share information, web links, notifications, and more. The calendar is one the best tools for communicating deadlines as the students are able to see the calendar for every class they are enrolled in all at once, with no extra work for you. Don't believe me? Check out your Google calendar right now.
Please let me know if you need any help getting set up and I will be happy to swing by and get you started! If you need help designing your Bitmoji, Israel Arauz is your guy.
