This is an intermediate learning plan based on Unit 1 of the WordBuilder Vocabulary book. This particular resource will be used with an Advanced 6th Grade ELA class, as the vocabulary words are consiered to be at a 7th grade level. However, it could be used with a 7th grade class as well. Students take a pre-assessment, and their score dictates which sets of activities they need to complete, with the goal being to move them toward proficiency on the post assessment. This intermediate playlist was developed as part of a professional learning opportunity funded by the NCDPI Digital Learning Initiative Planning Grant.
Up until this point students have been writing code that executes exactly the same way each time it is run - reliable, but not very flexible. In this lesson, your class will begin to code with conditionals, allowing them to write code that functions differently depending on the specific conditions the program encounters.
This editable google slide can be used by students to track their assessment data and standards progression in Civic Literacy. This resource was developed as part of a professional learning opportunity funded by the NCDPI Digital Learning Initiative Planning Grant.
Take your YouTube videos and screen recordings to the next level with Edpuzzle. Edpuzzle allows teachers to add interactive elements to videos that will keep students engaged. Integrate your Edpuzzle videos into your LMS (Google Classroom, Canvas and others) to ensure that your students are watching those YouTube videos and screen recordings you put so much effort into.

Kahoot! is a free tool for using technology to administer quizzes, discussions or surveys. It is a game based classroom response system played by the whole class in real time. Multiple-choice questions are projected on the screen. Students answer the questions with their smartphone, tablet or computer.
In this activity, students pose several hypotheses for what will happen if you continue heating or supplying energy to the hot and cold planet models (Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Earth) and then test their hypotheses using a spreadsheet based radiation balance model. The activity supports investigation of a real world challenge, experimenting with life support conditions for Mars at an Arctic outpost. The interactive model runs are conducted using a Java applet. This resource includes student worksheets, assessment questions and a teacher's guide. This is Activity B in module 2, Modeling hot and cold planets, of the resource, Earth Climate Course: What Determines a Planet's Climate? The course aims to help students to develop an understanding of our environment as a system of human and natural processes that result in changes that occur over various space and time scales.
