Equipping Teachers – Empowering Students
Finally, a product that meets the needs of the educator in the 21st century. Teachers want to teach and in order to do that, they need resources that are effective and yet convenient. I’ve been in education 20 plus years and appreciate materials that allow me to hone my craft. I need resources that work for and with the rigor of my curriculum. I happen to be a fan, an ardent fan, of Common Core and post my standards each day explaining those standards and my expectations. I like having those standards preprinted and perfectly aligned. Saves time from writing them and I can get right to what I love doing– teaching! Yes, this is definitely MyEdBuddy!Jacqulin Cw. McCrary
I cannot believe that there is a product on the market that supports how our students learn to collaborate, discuss the text, and look for evidence while using the Common Core Standards. It’s difficult for our students to discuss the text however our students stay on target with their collaborative conversations and use accountable talk language thanks to My Ed Buddy. The conversational cards and the accountable talk frames are an excellent resource for any classroom.Tonja Huff
