Thursday marked a historical moment in 4A’s learning environment… We’ve gone live on Edmodo! Students have been using Edmodo in specials with Mrs. Chang and Ms. Richardson. Now they’re using it in 4A. We conducted two simple assignments, but more is on the way. Our first project in Edmodo will be a book club. We’ll read the book “Tuck Everlasting” by Natalie Babbitt. Students will have discussions with others in the class, turn in assignments, play and practice their skills with the different apps offered through Edmodo as well as take quizzes and instantly see their score!!
