    Hello America, greetings from Scotland!

    Each year my pupils must carry out an assignment that is worth 25% of their overall mark. As part of this assignment they must carryout primary research. Many of my pupils are examining issues in America such as immigration, racial discrimination in the justice system, and the war on terror and in the past the Edmodo Community have been a valuable resource.

    If any teachers in the States would like to get themselves and/or perhaps their classes involved I (and my pupils) would be so grateful if you could get in touch below with your email address and we will get in contact soon.

    Thank you!

    Greetings from Scotland!

    I am looking to get in touch with teachers from the USA to help my senior pupils carry out research for their end of year assignments. One of my pupils would be delighted if you could get in touch with me in order to answer her questions about immigration in the USA.

    If you are interested in helping, please leave a comment below and I will get back to you. Thanks in advance.

    Ok, I'm trying to use the "Drafting Board": interest groups and here are the problems my students are having.
    1. They reach 75% and can't go any further
    2. Some it is just the cork board and nothing else
    3. Spinning pencil and nothing else
    4. Students finish the essay and when they go to print/view the essay is someone else's essay.

    We are using windows desktops, internet explorer

    HELP PLEASE!

    Is there a way to see how much the student actually writes?

    I want to use "Do I have a Right?" with my 8th graders tomorrow. Does anyone have a worksheet for them to fill out while they do it? I know if I just turn them loose, they will just click buttons and not focus on the program. Thank you so much!

      There is a score at the end. Give them credit for achieving a passable score. You can verify this by having them print out or save/upload to Edmodo the certificate that comes at the end. I tell my students that some room for error is ok, but I expect that they are MOSTLY getting the information correct...

      I make review/reflection questions for them to complete on Edmodo about their choices, why they made those choices, what the effects were, and what they would do differently.

    Ok was going to do the Drafting board -- Interest Groups and we haven't used this since August. Now trying to sign in and I used two different usernames and couldn't get logged in. HELP! They will be using this tomorrow.
