Tool #4

So far, I have created a Google doc and a Google form to share with the 6th grade ELA team. This document can be used as a reading log for our students to record the following information for each book: title, author, summary, and total number of pages read. This document is shared with the student so they can go in and add to it on a regular basis.
There is such a variety of Google Apps in the classroom that for Language Arts, we could come up with so many uses depending on what are lesson is at the time. I am looking forward to using them all in the classroom.

The idea of using an Educator PLN is great! I think it is a great opportunity to not only have creative ideas at your finger tips, but to be able to communicate with colleagues in your content area. For example, I might be conisdering a project in my lesson plan but am not sure how well the logistics will work out. This would be a good place to go and see if someone else as tried it, what it looks like, and how it worked for them. This would also be a great resource for contacts in skyping opportunities between classrooms.
