April's Word Study...
...that's not really a word study.
April. That wonderful time of the year when all middle school students and teachers lose "they" minds. As evidence, I give you things I've said in the last week alone:
No one has every accused middle schoolers of being exceptionally logical humans.
However, there are some bright spots to the end of the year.
Here's one of them. This kid. He is my tech genius of first period. Yesterday, he turned me on to a website called @PaperRater (www.paperrater.com). How can this company have been around since 2011 and I've never found them? (Luckily, I have kids like this dude).
@PaperRater uses A.I. to analyze papers. Granted, it's a little clickbaity and I have only used the free version, but things I LOVED were:
The literature says that this program is powered by A.I.. As I said earlier, I don't think this will take the place of a teacher or peer feedback, but it is a great place to start in the revision journey.
I'm a technology curriculum facilitator, and I'm excited about integrating technology in the classroom.
