Tech Tip is a new site that has brought together teachers from across the nation to create five to six minute "screencasts" of high quality lessons on math, reading, and writing skills. You can use these screencasts to support common core standards. Read up on it through this post by Daniel Rock, ELA Literacy Specialist at the Georgia Department of Education. And don't forget to try it out too.
