United Classrooms AUTHENTICALLY ENGAGE IN LITERACY
Scenario:My students need well-developed literacy skills to succeed in school and in the workplace. However, they are not motivated to practice literacy because they are not offered enough engaging opportunities to motivate them to do so. In a digital world it is difficult for books and journals to compete with technology. My students would be more captivated by literacy practice if it were embedded within relevant and socially motivated activities.
How UClass Helps: From the context of their secure Classroom Profile Page students can write messages to their classmates, teachers and other students around the world. Through feeds, students use reading and writing to extend their learning, discuss classroom topics and current events. The more they write, the more they are heard. The more they read, the more they learn. Sign up atUClass.org.
