Author: cheryl o
Grade Level: 6 - 12
You will create a google account, by registering with gmail. You will create a CAST account as a teacher for yourself, but as a student for me to follow these directions.
You will create two more subscriptions. Gmail, Cast. You will follow the directions using the CAST site to make your google alert.
1. Go to gmail and register. Then login. 2. Go to http://cst.cast.org/cst/auth-login and create a login, then login as a teacher. You will need to login as a teacher. I will give you your student login to be in my class and experience the CAST strategy. This process allows students to be more independent. It may be more for gr. 7 and 8, but would be a good process for group work with gr. 5 and 6.
Directions: This is where you create your gmail account. This account gets you into all the google educator accounts. http://www.google.com/educators/index.html
Directions: You will have to install the CAST for your browser. It will be in the documentation after you log in.
