Hi Everyone and welcome to SUMMER šŸ™‚

Check it out atĀ https://www.fusfoo.com/ Mineola High School has several articles including the one featured “Seniors Speak: Reflections”

Writing Reviser – a Google AddOn

29 03 2017

Back in 2014, I wrote about SAS Curriculum Pathways and the many interactive tools and lessons available for free. They are still there but now they are moving to Chrome!!! The Writing Navigator is a tool AND app that helps students move from planning to drafting to revising to publishing. You will have to create an account but its free.

And NOW, SAS has included an add-on to Google Docs for the Writing Reviser! Any teacher I’ve shown this tool to has been blown away!
To get it, go to Tools, Get Add-ons in a Google Doc:Ā 
When you want to use the Writing Reviser just go back to your AddOn tab and Open the Addon! I can’t even tell you how much is available with this add-on. I could not do it justice. Here’s some images but you really need to try it to see its power.

Sentence Economy Information

Verb Tenses

Misplaced Modifiers

Enjoy!





SWAY an online FREE Presentation Tool

11 12 2016

Have you ever used SWAY? It is an incredible FREE online tool that can be used to create presentations/lessons. Since it is strictly online, it works well with Chromebooks.Ā AĀ VERY cool thing about SWAY isĀ that it intuitively offers content based on the words you place on your “cards”. The content offered is Creative Commons – You can embed YouTube, Geogebra, Tweets, Google Maps…

The example above was created by me and all content was in the Sway library for me so I never had to leave the site.

Sways can be private or public so sharing is encouraged! The following example is one that I found – I chose it because it gives some really good ideas. If you click on the … in the right corner, you can open full size in a new tab. Enjoy!
