Routines are important for all students; however, many of our students with IEP's need an extra layer of support. Visual schedules are a great tool to help students stay on track. Google Slides is a great tool for helping students in remote environments because: Schedules can be shared easily via Google Classroom and customized to meet the needs of individual students Visual cues help students stay on track, focused, and maintain a sense of accomplishment Teachers can embed important links to resources, tools, and even GoNoodle video to take a break!  Want your own copy?

Instead, I want to show you how to create your own rubric, save as a Google Doc, and distribute to students in your favorite learning management system. Here is an easy hack for using Orange Slice and Google Classroom to generate a rubric!
