Class Resources

What is on this page?

On this page, you will find the unit PowerPoints, quizzes, Padlets, and other support for your learning. Resources are organized by unit, and then by learning target. 

Note: The PowerPoints include all slides from the unit, and can become very long. The slides are in order, oldest will be on top, and the newest information will be on the bottom. Each day begins with a title slide with the date. The day's slides include all of the following slides, up until the next day's title slide. To find the day quickly, click the magnifying glass, or "find" icon  and type the date you are looking for in the format "9/15." If that doesn't work, you can scroll until you find the right day. 

Need some help with readings?

  • Natural readers. This is a great tool in which you can convert any file to be text-to-speech. 
  • Rewordify This program is a free online program that helps with eliminating and replacing overly complex language. It's great if some of the words from a reading are too difficult to understand.
