Beyond the classroom walls… When snow days kept us at home last year, we started playing with a digital discussion environment called nowcomment.com. It allows us to have private discussions about texts and has become the perfect tool for promoting discourse! Even better… the format is in line with the new PARCC assessments students will have to take. My students love anything I put onto a screen for them and beg me to access work digitally from home. This tool really helped me turn my less motivated students who would only do the minimum to stretch above and beyond with their participation and thinking.
