Virtual Labs Created by Glencoe Many of these labs allow students to test multiple variables. Caution: the journal and data entry sections of the simulations do not work, so you probably will want to arrange for students to write these on their own pages. Many of these labs are useful to substitute for activities in the class that are too costly, dangerous, or time consuming. Life Science How do animal and plant cells work?

LinkEngineering - Homepage Common Core Lesson Plans Reviewed by Teachers Why Select Other Criteria? Sometimes you only have 45 minutes to review participles before Tuesday's assembly, or you need curriculum you know was reviewed after a certain date. Duration: If curriculum authors indicate how long it takes to implement a resource, i.e. a 30-minute vocabulary exercise, a three-day science experiment, or a two-week expository writing project, we note it for you. If not, our teacher reviewers may indicate an estimated amount of time it would take. When you select a duration in this box, you'll see only resources with that stated duration. Reviewed After: Limit the resources you see to those reviewed since the date you choose by clicking the box and making a selection.

Ele Rules for Rubrics Rubrics make life easier. They take most of the subjectivity out of grading, and they give more feedback than just a number or check mark could. Unfortunately, not all rubrics are created equal. Rubrics are a communication tool between teachers and learners, which means they need to be written with the students as the audience. Use Your Standards It seems like a simple concept, but often teachers forget to align rubrics. Use Student-Friendly Language While teachers should be striving for the use of academic language in the classroom, there needs to be a scaffolding of your vocabulary, even in high school. Sometimes the best way to get student-friendly language is for your classes to create and use rubrics themselves. Less is More You don’t have to pack a textbook’s worth of instruction into your rubric squares. Reuse Your Rubrics While slight modifications are always necessary, try to keep your rubrics consistent throughout the year. Lesson Planet Resources: Critical Essay Research Writing
