Making Thinking Visible in the Google Infused Classroom
How do you know your students are truly understanding what they are being taught in your class? How are they showing what they know? And how do you ensure that those who do not perform well on standardized tests have the opportunity to demonstrate their learning and increase their confidence as learners?
