Hi everyone! My name is Caitlin and I’m the new community leader of this bowl. I’ve been a teacher for 7 years and love learning more about education from this app. What would you like to see more of?
Looking for some fresh ideas for activities to do for pre-writing (writing a thesis). We'll be writing narrative essays about overcoming and learning from an obstacle. I've used pictures prompts, class discussions, thinkpairshare, and video clips of good speeches/rhetorical devices. thanks!
Our district is looking at building digital textbooks. Any tips or examples the community here could give, I’d appreciate it a lot!
Podcast recommendations that’s not serial (it’s done in 9th grade at my school and I teach 11th)? Trying to get more accessible content for my students.
I learned so much about group work over the past few days. I now know to assign kids tasks in a group. I am planning a Socratic Seminar for R &J and Julius Caesar. Any insights or feedback?
How do you design your grading scale? I don't want to have my low kids have grades in the 30's because then they might as well not come. But, I don't want too many kids getting an A either.
Illnesses (mine or my kids) knocked out 4 days of instruction right after a school break and AS I STARTED a new unit. I lost all traction. How do I get back in front of the ball???
Does anyone have standards based grading at the high school level? What does it look like? I feel like it’s coming for us, so I’m just trying to get a feel for what I can expect. Thanks!!

Has anyone ever heard of or participated in Grammar Day? It's on March 4th. Wondering what it's all about, resources, etc.
