Atomic Adds Assessments to Lesson Accelerators


Curriculum developer Atomic Learning this week announced that it's added an assessment rubric to its Lesson Accelerator lesson plans.

Lesson Accelerators are plans that combine academic subjects with technology, requiring students to use third-party applications (such as PowerPoint or Comic Life) as part of a lesson assignment. They also include downloadable support materials, ideas for further study, and tutorials designed to help complete individual lesson objectives.

Now Lesson Accelerators also include rubrics customized for each individual lesson, designed to be used either by the teacher or by the student (for self assessments). More information about Lesson Accelerators can be found at the link below.
