Teacher Guides

We would like to provide assistance to educators when they are using 21t4s with their students. Below are linked Teacher Guides for each of the 21 Things and here is a link to the Complete URL list that has a separate tab for the URL's for each Thing.

Each Quest Teacher guide has the following components:

Overview of this Thing
Overview of the Quest
Student Showcase Portfolio Template link
Learning Objectives
I Can Statements
Estimated Classroom Completion Time (on most)
Pre-planning suggestions
Tools/apps/applications/Videos to be pre-checked
Helpful tutorial videos or extra resources for the teacher
Linked student checklist, Key Vocabulary with Quizlet practice
For teacher use:

  • Assessment options (linked rubrics where available)
  • Instructional Strategies (some filled in others for teachers to add)

Student Checklists are linked to on each Quest page as well as on the Teacher Guides. 

Teacher Guides are found on each of the "Thing" pages and main Quest pages on the right-hand side with the apple icon.
