What happy teachers are saying:


Loved this bundle. It was very easy to use. My students and I created a rubric together to grade our research project. It really had them take ownership for their work. 

~ Lani G.


I am not a very tech savy so I was worried it would be over my abilities.  This is so easy to use.  There are lots of examples and clear instructions.  I love that I can put in the language of our classroom to make the criteria clear.  Definitely worth the money.

I love how many different ways this resource can be used. Age appropriate and easy for kids to understand.
