Study Island Feature Focus: Teacher Toolkit

Friday, March 11, 2016 -- Ashlee Tatum-Eckley

Did you know that Study Island features a Teacher Toolkit automatically included as part of your subscription? The Teacher Toolkit includes thousands of elementary, middle, and high school learning resources. Teachers can easily search for and sort resources by grade, subject, subcategory, and resource type. For example, if you are teaching a lesson on fractions, you can very quickly find a teacher video, math practice activities, a lesson plan, and animation to support your instruction. The toolkit is a great resource for teachers looking for materials to supplement their lessons or present during whole class and small group instruction, or who are simply looking for some great ideas.

With a quick keyword search, you can easily find:

Teacher Videos: Teacher videos feature experienced teachers who briefly talk through ways in which you can effectively address and teach specific topics in your classroom.
