What is learned by taking away the words from stories and articles and leaving just the punctuation? A lot! This interesting tool allows you to paste any text into the box and strip away everything except the punctuation. What is left behind is a graphic ready to analyze and discuss. Learn more about the origins of just the punctuation and possible uses by following the link "here's why," located at the bottom of the page.

tag(s): authors (99), literary devices (13), punctuation (25)

In the Classroom

Engage students in analyzing literature and their writing using just the punctuation. Ask students to compare and contrast the use of punctuation by different authors and discuss how it reflects a certain writing style or sets a tone for the text. Discuss authors with similar styles and those with very different use of punctuation. Compare and contrast punctuation in news articles versus fiction writing or textbooks. Is there a difference, and why? Take a screenshot of a new section of text to introduce the writing to students before reading and ask them to share their predictions on the author's writing style - consider the number of periods, exclamation marks, etc. Enhance learning by asking students to compare a piece of their writing to different authors. Can they find an author with a similar writing style? When finished, have students share their reflections in a blog created with Carrd, reviewed here. Ask students to include a screenshot of the punctuation discussed along with your students' reflection upon the writing style.

Tract is a learning platform for sharing and guiding students through project-based learning activities. Students complete self-directed learning paths consisting of small missions and challenges to deepen understanding by choosing many different topics. Share content from already created learning paths found in Tract's library or create and personalize your learning paths. After making an account, educators add students and invite them to join using a personalized code. Students gain access to many different activities with varying levels of difficulty. They add reflections and complete projects as they follow a chosen learning path. Along the way, there is an option for students to interact with the student creators of their project to ask questions and learn from their expertise. Students earn points for completing learning paths to use as rewards to donate to their choice of several different charities. The educator dashboard enables teachers to track student progress, monitor submissions, and provide ongoing feedback.

tag(s): Project Based Learning (13), Teacher Utilities (123)

In the Classroom

Use Tract in various ways in any classroom to promote critical thinking skills, provide learning opportunities that meet students' interests, or provide enrichment that supports your current curriculum. Tract is excellent for use as part of Genius Hour or within a distance learning system. Help students select projects that match their interests and ability (take advantage of the project labels to find easy, medium, and advanced level learning activities). Ask students to document and share projects as part of a digital portfolio. About.me, reviewed here, is a portfolio creation site suitable for older students. For elementary students, consider sharing student projects in Seesaw, reviewed here. Add student-created work, including videos, images of completed activities, and reflection documents.

Spaces is a portfolio-creation tool that provides assessment opportunities and demonstrates student progress through three different types of Spaces. First, create a Class Space to share files and media and promote discussion for the whole class. Second, Group Spaces offer the ability to connect with groups designed from within the Class Space. Finally, Individual Spaces allow individual students and families to engage in sharing learning products. Use the tools provided in Spaces to add tags to show progress or curate work products. Other options include the ability to assign activities on specific dates and to particular groups and individuals.

tag(s): assessment (122), communication (135), DAT device agnostic tool (134), Formative Assessment (41), Learning Management Systems (25), portfolios (23), Teacher Utilities (123)

In the Classroom

Access the included guides to learn about the features of Spaces and to import your class. After creating a class, invite students to join by sharing the class code or link. Access is available on all devices and through apps available on Google Play and the Apple App Store. Introduce students to Spaces by asking them to upload a short video or photo introducing themselves to the class. Create and share student portfolios that demonstrate growth in reading, math, science, music, art, or other subjects. Share student work during parent/teacher conferences to show and highlight student progress.
