AP Biology Books For Elementary Students Using Book Creator

In the past, students have created books to read to elementary students via a hard cover book.  While this was an option this year, we also gave the students an option to use the Book Creator App.

The students traveled to one of our local elementary schools to read them this morning!

Raider Strong Episode 018: Kare Goodness

Podcast: Play in new window  |  SubscribeiTunes

In this episode, Mr. Kare Goodness, District Adaptive Physical Education Teacher, tells us that he has known since 7th grade that he wanted to be a teacher.

As with many of our district employees, the people are the best part about working in the Pulaski Community School District. So much so that he doesn't want to do any other job!

When he's not in school, Kare is hanging out with his kids in the outdoors.  Someday, you'll see him in Alaska!

Why Are We Creating Podcasts?
Our AP Environmental Science teacher will be listening to and creating podcasts in May 2017 based on an item of interest.  I needed to understand the workflow and found a purpose: introducing our great staff to the world! Discover the details!

RWT Timeline: Amazing Free iPad or Computer Tool

The Timeline App is a tremendously easy app (or website) to create timelines.  So many of the timeline apps are extremely expensive.  This app allows for three different options for organizing events:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Event
A timeline that graphically represents related items or events in a sequential order and displayed along a line can be another method for students to "show what they know".

Exporting Options are as a JPG or as a PDF.  Collaboration is also possible as a "file" type .RWT can be emailed or Airdropped so that students can add their portions to the group timeline.
View the steps.
