In this course we will use Google Docs, Kahoot and Youtube. -Google Docs: Each week students will have assessments to share with me focused around citing text evidence, main idea, summarizing and informational writing. These assessments will be on a Google Doc. The student will share the Doc with the teacher when it is completed. Students will need access to a Google account in order to use Google Docs. -Kahoot: Some weeks will contain an optional Kahoot to review the week's readings and vocabulary. This will be a clickable link and the student does not need to sign up for any account to play the Kahoots. -Youtube: Some weeks might have a Youtube video as a way to extend learning at the end of the material.
