Resources to support student learning

More helpful resources from the web to assist in Special Education, ELL, World Language, Reading, Math, Current Events and More!

Center for Language Education and Research (CLEAR) 

The Center for Language Education http://clear.msu.edu/clear/ has a lot of free tools for World Language, ELL and Special Education teachers. On the website click on resources and then click on Rich Interactive Applications RIA. There are many tools here in which students can RECORD themselves using Video or Audio!

Google Tools for Reading

No matter what our content area is, every teacher is a teacher of reading; therefore, why not have a great list of Google Tools for Reading! These Google Tools have not been broken down by grade level but rather skill or topic.  

Google Tools for Math

Here are a few tools that are great for use in the Math classroom.  These Google Tools have not been broken down by grade level but rather skill or topic.

Countable - GREAT FOR ELECTION TIME! 

This allows students an opportunity to find an issue and create a current position on it and then defend or support it. Could change the face of how kids view government. Yay - Nay - debate - counterpoint.  It can also give the class an opportunity to write to the congressman/woman directly.  The coolest part is that “the next phase” -- you wait and then you can check back in and you can see how your congressman/woman voted.
