Another Exciting New Resource on unitedstreaming!

In January, we released over 250 BRAND NEW writing prompts based on the national English/Language Arts standards for writing by NCTEA – The National Council of Teachers of English.

These new Writing Prompts feature:

  • Difficulty levels that cover all levels of students from those who are just beginning the writing process to those who are in AP courses!
  • Descriptive, Narrative, Expository, and Persuasive prompts for grades 3-12 and Analysis prompts for grades 9-12.
  • The images that correspond with these prompts relate to content taught across the country both literary and non-literary, i.e., social studies, science, philosophy, cultural, community, etc.

Discovery Education worked in conjunction with The International Society for Iste_1 Technology in Education (ISTE) to create a series of technology infused lesson plans.  The ISTE Seal of Alignment assures that the use of unitedstreaming digital media, as documented in these lessons, has been rigorously reviewed and determined to meet specific National Educational Technology Standards.  Educators can use these lessons as guidelines on how to effectively infuse unitedstreaming digital media into their lesson design.  To find the ISTE lesson plans, log into unitedstreaming, click on the Teacher Center, and then Lesson Plan Library.

What does all of this mean for you?!?  It works.  Plain and simple.  You already knew that unitedstreaming is a great resource.  Here is one more thing that proves it!  So rest easy knowing that what you are already using or what you plan on using in the near future is effective AND trustworthy!  And isn’t always nice to have another seal of approval?

Until Next Time-

    Discovery Education is a great resource for my staff. The release of the writing prompts is timely. Our State examinations, ISAT and PSAE, will be administered in mid-March and early April. The prompts
    will help to prepare our students for the writing portion.

    Thanks for the effort taken to create these great writing prompts! I copied the entire topic list and gave it to our building’s Language Arts Coordinator. Hopefully, this will be shared with our entire staff.
