  • Pre-class teacher tasks: Plan lessons Teachers need to provide resources for learning. Teachers need to create worksheets. In-class teacher tasks: Manage class + facilitate learning Teachers need to “multi-task”. Teachers need to facilitate learning with multimedia resources; students as well need to “note-take” with multimedia resources. Post-class teacher tasks: Grade (assess), record (administrative) Teachers need to provide feedback or assess students. Teachers need to keep various student records.
  • Sometimes, you find a great web resource, but your students simply don’t get it because the words are too difficult for them.Think about what resources you used in your Webquests for TIP 6 and 7
  • No need to explain the three indices. They are just references. Among the three the easiest one to use would be the last one, Flesch-Kincaid Grade, since it aligns the results with the K-12 grade level.The tool scans the text data from the webpage and analyzes it with mathematical algorithms. The results are reported in three types of reading level indices. (E.g., Gunning-Fog Index, Flesch Reading Ease, Flesch-Kincaid Grade)
  • Instead of student-made Webquest, you can have them Google search a concept from your subject area. Choose a webpage that is mostly text-based (No videos, image-texts, flash-texts; e.g., wikipedia, news articles).
