It can be time-consuming to create guided practice. That’s what makes TeacherMade such a great tool. TeacherMade converts your traditional paper assignments into online interactive activities. It’s simple:
When you upload your PDFs to TeacherMade, it allows you to adapt activities you already have to the needs of your students. You no longer need to force a paper or PDF worksheet to work just because you can’t change it. Now you can edit anything– digitally!
TeacherMade gives you the power to adapt your resources to fit your students right at the moment. The best part is that TeacherMade integrates perfectly into LMS platforms like Google Classroom, Schoology, Canvas, and MS Teams.
Guided practice is an interactive strategy teachers use during a lesson where they model how to do a task before students do the new concept independently.
Start and end every lesson in TeacherMade. With our Slide View feature, you can upload your instruction materials into TeacherMade. Use TeacherMade in place of Google Slides and PowerPoint.
I Do: You can embed formative assessment activities inside your slides. This allows you to model new skills with students.
We Do: With TeacherMade, you can plan for quick checks in knowledge during your lesson. This helps you adjust your teaching in the moment. Get instant student data and feedback with our formative assessment tools that embed inside your slides.
You Do: Set your students free with auto-graded assignments after the lesson is complete. Use assignments and learning materials you already have and convert them to digital assignments using our intuitive software.
Your students will know exactly how to get to work, and you can get back to what you do best— teaching.
“Being a math Teacher, this app is fantastic. I’m uploading all of my Word worksheets, turning them into TeacherMade worksheets, and now the hours I used to spend grading student work will be spent on better things…Love this app!”
“I am teaching Advanced Physics and chemistry, and this has made my life so much easier. We use it for Assessments and some practice assignments. This product has been a true godsend to anyone who uses Math and wants their students to show work. Thank you.” –John S.
This is the exact reason we created TeacherMade, but we must mention it. You can use what you already have– don’t reinvent the wheel!
TeacherMade eliminates the need for showing work using pen and paper. Your students will be able to show their work on their online interactive worksheets. You can even use the comment feature to give feedback along the way.
John S., chemistry and physics Teacher, explains:
“To see my students’ work, I leave a lot of space after the question. Students have been instructed to use the pencil button, and using either their phones, notebooks, or iPads, the students can then write out the equations and then show how they solved the problem. When they make me a diagram or a graph, they will use the text box feature to enter the appropriate titles. In each class, I did a practice assignment where I showed them where the tools were located and how to use them. The students then did a mini-assignment to show they could use the features I wanted them to be able to use. I am teaching using a mixed model where I have some students in person and a handful virtual. This really helped the virtual students in doing their work. They didn’t have to submit blurred pictures that I couldn’t read to get credit.”
This is great for foreign languages, poetry, or literature when students need to hear your voice. Record your voice, add a text box, and students can complete the assignment anytime. No need to be in the same room waiting for everyone to be on-task together!
We know worksheets are a vital tool for practicing skills that students need in the classroom. But why spend time grading repetitive guided practice? Take the practice questions you already use, put them into TeacherMade, add the answer key, and free up your time.
