We are expecting many new teachers to join us in the coming days and weeks as educators navigate the transition to online learning.
As a result, we have a request : if you have great formatives, especially if they cover an entire semester / course / year, would you consider posting them to the Library?
We think this would be an amazing help to teachers who are new to Formative, and looking for a starting point as they create formatives for their classes.
You can find out more about how to publish to the Library here. Note that if you select a folder to publish, that will automatically publish it as a bundle. Consider giving your formatives / bundles a title that will make them easily searchable!
From all at Formative, thank you
p.s. If you’ve already posted some great stuff, and don’t mind us sharing more widely, please let us know!
I posted my content for Honors 9th grade Geo and 10-12th grade geo. I am in the process of making sure all WS are attached; but for not it is only things that were created after 3/16 that has questions imbedded. But please feel free to share, there is no reason anyone should be recreating the wheel right now.
My concern is copyright issues. I “may” have scanned a picture from a book or used an audio that I’ve asked questions on. I will hunt for guidance on copyright, using pictures etc. I’ve shared with colleagues but only a few with the wider world.
I did a few as well, which is fun because I never have tried this before. It is always nice to see variations of teacher created assignments that I can copy and edit for my own students. This is one that I have used from a worksheet that I wanted to enhance with the help of Formative. It is “Introduction to Poetry” by Billy Collins that I used for my 8th graders as an entry way to our poetry unit.
Here is one of my formatives that I would like to share. It is an activity where Ss can practice graphing and data analysis. I added in a couple of screencasts to instruct Ss on how to make and upload the graphs. https://goformative.com/clone/WFA3ZG
This is true - Never thought of that. I think some guidance in this area may be helpful.
I made this Formative using a worksheet from another website: https://goformative.com/clone/UHPMCR?_rid=ba3pfu
Now I’m questioning whether I am allowed to do that or not.
I presume Youtubers won’t mind us using their clips because they get more views which means more income.
