As we inch closer to the finish line, we can only imagine the emotions that you must be feeling. From packing up your classroom, to hosting end of the year parties and end of the virtual year resources, we understand how meaningful this time of the year is. You have accomplished so much and it’s been powerful to see how so many have risen to the occasion. We hope to make this time a little easier by compiling end of the year resources you can use now or in the summer!

Lessons perfect for Student-Paced mode

Student-paced mode allows you to share asynchronous lessons with students so they can move through lessons at their own pace, any time, from anywhere. It’s a great tool to use during the end of the year because you can view progress in real-time to monitor student understanding across all lessons. The Nearpod Team handpicked lessons from our lesson library that are ideal for Student-Paced mode, allowing students to complete when it’s most convenient for them (& their parents) at home and during the summer!

Enter students in the Celebrate Asian/Pacific American Heritage Contest

In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, Nearpod hosts an annual script-writing contest from mid-April to mid-May. Students are invited to write an informational script honoring a historical figure for a chance to have their script turned into a Nearpod Original video!

This is the perfect research and writing assignment to easily assign to students as we wrap up the school year! Visit the contest packet which includes all of the resources you and your students need to enter, including a script-writing template.
