How I Use It
Although this site is expensive, I think that the site is well organized and would be a good resource for those that create and manage IEPs. Along the right side of the page there is a “standard staircase” that offers glimpses of the common core standards that are broken down by grade level. Teachers are able to make choices throughout the site, create plans for support and then save them to their library for later use. I think that this would be a great tool for teachers to use with meeting the needs of all students within their classroom. The ability to choose all levels of support and then save them to a file for later use is great.
My Take
Goalbook.com offers a free 20 day membership to educators. You invite 10 other educators for an additional free 10 days. A solo membership for a teacher would be either $32.95 per month or $595.00 for an annual membership. This website provides resources for teachers and especially teachers that will be writing or working with students with IEPs. The site allows the teacher to choose the grade level, subject and common core strand, Then it allows the teacher to choose the level of support that the student may need including mild level of support, moderate and intense level of support. The site could serve students by providing alternative support to effectively manage a diverse student population and to effectively reach all of the students within your classroom. I also like how you can share a link with parents so they can track the progress of their children- that is my favorite feature!
