About the resource bank
Recently, I observed a sixth grade science teacher asking her students to sort abiotic features of a landscape by their relative importance. There was no right answer. Each student had to work with a partner and come up with a ranking system together and then explain that system to other groups in the class. The activity was simple but powerful.
Do you have activities like that? Routines that you use in your class to make mixed level courses work? Go to sites for homework? Whatever it is that you have found or created to make teaching mixed level courses easier, we want to see it! Please share your materials with the detracking.com community in this Resource Bank.
To browse other people’s resources, visit the Index for the site.
To share a resource, create a new wiki page by clicking here or clicking “New” at the top of the screen and selecting “Wiki”.
Give your wiki page a descriptive name and then type up a description of your resource. You can also copy/paste in content from Word or from another website.
If you have a pdf or document that you want to attach, go to “Add Media” on the top left and upload material from your computer.
Then choose the Wiki Category that best describes your resource. If you don’t see a category for your resource, add your own category.
Add several wiki tags that describe your document. Wiki tags and categories are two different ways that people can find your resources. The tags I chose for this page are about, help, and wiki help.
Finally, click “Publish” The wiki does NOT autosave, so if you keep working after you hit publish, make sure to click “Update” when you are done!
