  5. 5. Quill • 2. Quill- A web-based tool that provides personalized, interactive grammar lessons for middle school students based on the Common Core State Standards.

Three Ring- Three Ring is a tablet and mobile app that allows teachers and students to snap a photo of written work, capture video of presentations, or record audio of student discussions -- all for the sake of supporting classroom organization.

  13. 13. Ponder • 6. Ponder- A “micro-reading response” tool that allows students and teachers to engage with each other when reading articles. Teachers can create a reading list for their class, selecting the sources (NY Times,, etc.) from which students can access articles. Teachers then make a list of topics that students can use to tag articles relevant to their current coursework. This would be great for close-reading with online text. Ponder Video. *Must be approved for an account-this may take a couple of days *Requires students to create an account for each class using an email address
