Are you using Google Classroom? Are you finding difficulty managing your email from assignments and posts from Classroom? Then check out below this simple, yet highly effective strategy!
Disclaimer: I cannot even pretend to take credit for this one. The original post is from Alice Keeler: Teacher Tech, but I heard about it from our own Malena Schrauben through this incredible Professional Development tool called Twitter.
The idea here is to use a hashtag in the title of each of your assignments. Then in gmail, filter messages out of your inbox based on that hashtag. Genius!
Math Class: #alg1 #extsn Exponents Power Rule
Social Studies: #SS7th #discuss Civil War Causes
Science: #sci8th #insectcollect Pinning a Butterfly
Notice that I tried to create examples that could group email by class, grade level, assignment type, or project. Hopefully, these examples will get you thinking. I am certain you will develop better uses on your own.
Also, Alice suggests developing a list of hashtags for students to use for things like #late, #help, etc. I might add #regrade #final #group3 #bellwork...
