What's a Learning Path?
This learning path is a series of videos, audio instructions, and practice activities designed to help students learn area and perimeter in a systematic way. It starts with the basics and adds in higher-level skills and rigor as students gain understanding. The Learning Path Packet keeps students on task and offers a place to show what they've learned. The Learning Path ends by students taking a summative quiz.
How does it work?
Students start with a printed Learning Path Packet and a Google Slides file. They will start at the beginning of the Google Slides and work their way through the entire file. The slides contain embedded videos that will teach students about area and perimeter, audio files to share insight or directions, and digital practice activities. The slides also guide students to visit their packets to show what they've learned. The packet keeps students on track and allows you to check in on them at any time throughout the learning process. Once it's complete, it can be taken as a grade or sent home for parents to see what they've been learning at school.
Once students have worked through the Learning Path and have shown that they have learned their area and perimeter skills, they can take a 20-question summative assessment. This assessment can be taken as a grade or it can help you create small groups for additional targeted practice or intervention.

This resource is great because it allows you to integrate technology, facilitate a student-paced classroom, have more available time to work with small groups of students, and assess student mastery.
Will this technology work in your class?
You can use the links below to check whether the technology will work on your students' computers. Some districts have filters blocking outside links, so if you don't often use Google in your class, make sure you test using a student computer!
Test that Google Slides Work! (You'll be asked to make a copy!) (bit.ly/testgoogleslides)
*** The backup videos are also housed on my website (not Youtube) and the audio files are transcribed in the notes section of each slide. This may help overcome technology hurdles you may have.
