I took a PD course this summer and am going to try gamification for one of my classes. I think it’s going to be huge and work well. It’s free and is called Classcraft. You can set the rewards as you want to promote engagement.

Classcraft worked well with 7th and below for us. Enjoy!

Personalizing my contextualizations ::::: using students interests / experiences to make this happen…. I prefer to see a master at this but I have done this with certain students when I know their real interests an or experiences… how can I do this for more students?

I’m doing TACO Tuesdays! Take initiative Achieve a goal Communicate Organize your findings — Each Tuesday, I’ll give them a goal or objective and they will work in small teams to figure it out, get the whole team on board, and put together a quick document on the solution. These will be one class period lessons where they use resourcefulness, creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication. I’m hoping that it helps them to take ownership and work on 21st Century skills.
