eMINTS teachers often find themselves creating scaffolding documents to use as part of classroom projects. Graphic organizers to brainstorm and record information, scoring guides and rubrics to guide and assess, classroom use policies that establish expectations and norms, etc.
Sometimes those documents need to be protected or need to be in a format that is easily viewed by others when posting them to shared folders, emailing them to students/parents, or even uploading them to websites.
Converting from PDF:
Sometimes teachers and students find PDF documents that they would like to enter content into electronically instead of printing a hard copy and then hand writing information on it.
