My students are eager to have digitally based lessons presented to them in the classroom. Textbooks are no longer the only source of information available to students, and I want to bring a new level of digital curriculum into my classroom that corresponds with their thirst for technology.
My school is an urban high school striving to be the best, and help every student make academic gains.
The majority of my students are self-motivated, ambitious, and eager to achieve in both school work and in the real world. Our school is a very open community, with the majority of students getting along. There are no real "cliques" at our school, and all the students work with one another to reach their goals.
I have been assigning practice quizzes and corrections from this site as the focus of review in my course. These questions are all based on the AP Exam model, and the detailed explanations the students receive has helped expand their understanding and application of the content in this course. There are hundred of multiple choice and essay questions available, and these practice opportunities are so important to enable student success.
The class monitoring available through this platform is also a great resource.
By creating classes, assigning activities, and reviewing student work I can have a very clear picture of areas of weakness class wide, and with individual students. This can really help us focus our attention and topic scope in class, while also guiding the student in what personal areas to focus on as well. I believe access to this resource has greatly increased students knowledge and confidence going into the AP Euro exam, and has translated in increased scores throughout the sophomore IB class.
