Today is day two of my Using Google in the Classroom Series
With two years of Marzano training behind us, it was important to my co-teacher and I to continue to have the Marzano strategies at the forefront when creating lesson plans. My co-teacher created an excellent guided reading lesson plan template that listed the Marzano strategies as checkboxes in addition to a location for the instructional plan. After using this for a few weeks, I thought it might be much easier to use this as a Google Form. Yesterday, I showed you how to create a new form. You can also click here to view the video tutorial.
When planning each week, I type my guided reading lessons for each group into the form. Click here to see form I created. As with all Google Forms, my responses are recorded into a spreadsheet that is saved in my Google Docs. Click here to view the spreadsheet. I have blacked out my students' names for privacy purposes. Each week, I am able to print the spreadsheet and stick it in my lesson planning binder and CAFE notebook. It is so easy and convenient!
