Classic Short Stories 80 Interesting Ways To Use Google Forms In The Classroom 80 Interesting Ways To Use Google Forms In The Classroom by TeachThought Staff When you think of innovative, edgy, compelling uses of technology, Google Forms isn’t exactly the first thing that leaps to mind.

TBT Video Introduction Male Narrator:Ohio has many programs and initiatives aimed at ensuring that all students are prepared for future success in a rapidly changing global economy. To understand the connections between these efforts, it helps to look at the big picture.

The Ransom Of Red Chief by O Henry IT LOOKED like a good thing: but wait till I tell you. We were down South, in Alabama -- Bill Driscoll and myself -- when this kidnapping idea struck us. It was, as Bill afterward expressed it, "during a moment of temporary mental apparition"; but we didn't find that out till later. There was a town down there, as flat as a flannel-cake, and called Summit, of course. It contained inhabitants Of as undeleterious and self-satisfied a class of peasantry as ever clustered around a Maypole. Bill and me had a joint capital of about six hundred dollars, and we needed just two thousand dollars more to pull off a fraudulent town-lot scheme in Western Illinois with. We selected for our victim the only child of a prominent citizen named Ebenezer Dorset. About two miles from Summit was a little mountain, covered with a dense cedar brake. "Hey, little boy!" The boy catches Bill neatly in the eye with a piece of brick. Bill was pasting court-plaster over the scratches and bruises on his features. "Ha!

"The Fan Club" by Rona Maynard There was a ripple of dry, humorless laughter—almost, Laura thought, like the sound of a rattlesnake. Rachel stood before the class now, her face red, her heavy arms piled with boxes. Diane Goddard tossed back her head and winked at Steve. “Well, well, don’t we have lots of things to show,” said Miss Merrill. “Man, that kid’s dumb,” Steve muttered, and his voice could be clearly heard all through the room. With a brisk rattle, Miss Merrill’s pen tapped the desk for silence. Rachel’s slow smile twitched at the corners. “Hurry and pick them up,” said Miss Merrill sharply. Rachel crouched on her knees and began very clumsily to gather her scattered treasures. “My—my speech is on shells.” A cold and stony silence had settled upon the room. “Lots of people collect shells, because they’re kind of pretty—sort of, and you just find them on the beach.” “Well, whaddaya know!” “This one,” Rachel was saying as she opened one of the boxes, “it’s one of the best.” “Or in a trash dump.”
