It’s time for Round 3 of the Edcite Olympic Games series! The folks at Edcite have shared assignments about Olympians who persevered when faced with obstacles. It’s also a great way to engage students in standards-based ELA and math practice and teach them to never give up.
In case Edcite is new to you, it’s a free platform. Edcite offers an extensive library full of teacher-created assignments, regardless of grade level. The assignments certainly use technology-enhanced question types, engaging texts, and multimedia.
