A few technological resources that could assist in the ELA classroom!
Is a writing lab where students can produce multiple drafts of their works and teachers can see this. As well, teachers can use this an evaluation tool for grading assignments. This eliminates paper.
Is an online binder that allows for the compilation of resources. Your students can add to this as well as you. Could save time when looking for websites to research. You chose who the binder is accessible to.
Of course there are all sorts of online grammar guides that can be useful for references for your students or for teaching them a specific skill. Try a few and pick one or two that work for you – may be different then other people around you
This can be lifesavers for your students. Again, find a website that you like, and teach your students to use it. There are many that cite really weird, so let the students know which ones are approved by you.
