Teacher Talk at Two, Sept. 2, 2016
If students are not reading or not quiz-ready or miss distributed readings because there was an IT error, your back-up plan can be to give the quiz to the class as a group. Use it as a teaching instrument rather than a formative assessment. We should not excuse them from reading, but sometimes we need an “In Case of Emergency” back-up plan.
Use Harvey (Blackboard) Announcements with “Send Email” instead of sending an email to all students. This method both sends the email in Harvey AND posts an announcement.
Make sure Harvey is in EDIT mode when you revise your class content or design. (Top right corner, green button)
Hope these are helpful!
