Whole Class Instruction

Overview
All of the Classworks unit components (mini-lesson, activities, quizzes) can be used as a teaching tool to help support teacher instruction. This can be done via an Interactive Whiteboard, LCD projector, or in a small group setting with a single computer. 

You can also access the Student Resources to model best practices for student use of the resources. (See Orient Students for more information on the Resources available)

Ways to Use
There are three options for launching instructional content from the teacher module for whole class or small group instruction. 

Option 1: Launch content from assignments that are currently assigned to a class or specific students. You may do this if you want to... 
  • Preview concepts before the students work in Classworks 
  • Review concepts that the students struggled with in their Classworks assignments or in the classroom. 

Option 2: Launch content from the alignment to the State Standards or the Common Core Standards. You may do this if you want to... 
  • Introduce new concepts from the current grade level 
  • Correlate with the standards being taught in the classroom 
  • Preview the upcoming grade level's concepts 

Option 3: Launch content from the Classworks Presets. You may do this if you want to... 
  • View content from our Science*, the Practice & Review Bundles, and/or Integrated Reading activities.
