Using Formative Assessment and Google to Drive Student Centered Instruction Rebecca M. Lowe Shawn S.Geary Franklin City Public Schools 3-2-1 3 ways you currently preserve

instructional materials from year to year 2 ways you currently assess students 1 thing you know about Google Apps One way to assess students and preserve instructional materials is through Google Drive and Google Forms. What?!

What you need: Google account/login Curriculum framework Time Lets get started! While viewing your Gmail account, notice a 3x3 square in the upper

right corner of your screen. If you click on it, a drop down menu will appear that includes the Drive symbol. Click on this symbol. Welcome to Google Drive! The following slide shows a sample Google Drive folder. All Google accounts include this feature.

Most document formats (including Word documents, PowerPoints, and Google-generated documents) can be stored in your Drive. To organize these files, create folders within your Drive. Think of it like a free flash drive you cannot lose! Google Drive How does Google Drive relate to my

classroom? Google Drive can be used to organize any documents! As an experienced teacher, you have numerous documents for each stage of instruction. One way to organize these resources in Google Drive is through the creation of units according to the skill being taught. The following unit focuses on the reading skill drawing conclusions. Each unit must

include resources for: -Direct instruction -Guided practice -Formative assessment Direct

Instruction Text Clue What I know What I read What I conclude Left side of the interactive notebook page

Conclusion I can smell the scent of popcorn in the air as I watch the lions and panthers pacing back and forth in their cages. When will the clowns come

out? Where am I? My throat is itchy and sore. I cant sit still. My body aches. Why is it so crowded and hot in here? Where am I? Right side of the interactive notebook page

Guided practice link Flipchart files are lessons created for interactive whiteboards. These lessons can be stored in Google Drive for future use.

1 2 The children raced from their school buses to enter S.P. Morton. As they entered the building, administrators were standing on the sidewalk greeting them and introducing themselves. Some teachers were handing out fresh pencils and notebooks. All the students looked precious in their new uniforms. New students were asking where their classrooms were

located. Old friends reunited with one another after a long time apart. The twin boys were wrestling on their bedroom floor. As they rolled around laughing and tugging at one another, their mother called for them to come eat breakfast. They ignored her and continued wrestling. As they heard their mother climbing the steps to their room, both boys quickly ran for the

door. Their mother heard glass shattering and both boys screaming. 4 3 Benjamin Franklin used his time wisely. In his lifetime, he invented many useful things that remain in use today. He invented an efficient wood stove, swimming fins, and bifocal glasses. Also, and

perhaps most famously, Franklin discovered electricity. After many observations, Franklin decided to fly a kite during a lightning storm to study electricity. In this way, he was able to change the way Americans lived forever. Beta fish require less care and upkeep than almost any other pet. Unlike most other fish, beta fish can live in small tanks or even large cups. They do not require circulating water. Therefore, Beta

owners do not need to purchase a filter. If a beta fish becomes too cold in its tank, it simply shows its owner by tucking its fins under itself and sinking to the bottom. This is not because it is dying, but because it would appreciate a little heat! Lowe, 2014 Lowe, 2014
