Excel in the K-12 Classroom
Amber MacArthur, Bill Jelen, Leo LaPorte, Andy Walker on the set of Call for Help on TechTV Canada. The tip in this show is from Excel for Teachers.
Most teachers have computers in their classroom, but don’t know how to utilize Excel. In this segment, we’ll take a look at 3 classroom uses for Excel: 1) Create customized math exercise sheets 2) Track reading progress 3) Track Attendance Customized Math Exercise Sheets
Say that your first graders need to work on adding digits 1 to 9 where the sum does not exceed 10.
Track Reading Progress
This is a cool chart to share with parents during parent-teacher conferences. All of the reading scores are stored out of sight in rows 34 & below. In the top of the worksheet, you will select a single student from the dropdown in A4. The chart will update to show that student.
All of these workbooks are available for download with the book. Through the courtesy of the publisher, I am able to share the ReadingProgress.xls workbook with viewers of the show.
