In an effort to get students using Edmodo exclusively, I’ve now discontinued posting homework on the class website. Students should be sure to use Edmodo, and the “Turn In” button to inform me that their assignment is done. The following morning, I am able to click into their post and give then a subjective score between 1-4 for quality and accuracy. We will then review the homework in detail (especially math) to make sure the student has mastery of the topic.
Parents, if you have not joined Edmodo yet, this is a great way to follow what your child is doing in class. It also allows you to see the level of participation and thinking.
