Using Schoology to Put 'Umph' in Mandatory Textbook Teaching

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Do you feel stifled by your school's textbook adoption? Are students less than excited by lessons that begin with "turn to page 5,000 in your book"? This year my building adopted a new reading program-the cost of which would have completely paid off my home mortgage. I wrestled with the above questions until December when I decided to take charge and created interactive "to-do" lists in Schoology. Student interest increased, lessons were easy to differentiate for a variety of levels and lesson planning became less of a chore. Join me as I take you through my journey including samples of plans and student outcomes. Bring your laptop and a teacher's manual to begin your journey putting "Umph" back in your textbook lessons!

1) To see how Schoology can be used to make textbook learning more engaging
2) To learn how to work smarter, not harder by creating unit lists that can be reused next year with minor tweaking
3) To gather resources and gain new ideas
