Discussion Posting with Peers
A topic discussion allows students to interact with their peers and the content. Each discussion posting contains instructions and guidelines for posting. The guidelines provide students with instructions on how to create a message, read the discussion, and properly respond to their peers. The discussion instructions are found below the guidelines and follow and rubric.
Virtual Labs using Simulations
There are a variety of simulations available for free, including Glencoe and PhET for Science-based courses. These interactive experiences help engage students by immersing them in the content, especially the concepts that are difficult to understand as they cannot be seen with the naked eye (like cells).
Personalized Learning Allows for Student Choice
In this example, students have four assignment options: easy, medium, hard, and creative. This allows for a more personalized learning approach. Students can choose an easier assignment if they struggle with the content, a hard assignment if they want to be challenged, or a creative assignment if they are more artistic.
A Variety of Assignment Types
Students can interact with content using: matching pair activities, drawing and labeling activities via Nearpod, crossword puzzles via H5P, competitive quizzes via Quizziz, group projects via Canvas Collaboration, comparison charts, concept maps, interaction on FlipGrid, drawing and labeling, foldables, interactive videos via Canvas Studio, and creative writing opportunities.
