Are you a Social Studies teacher? Here’s an opportunity to learn how you can bring digital assessment into your classroom!
This webinar aired live on November 8th at 5pm Pacific Time. View the recording below.
Take a look at how digital assessment can help social studies teachers ask better questions, understand what students actually know, and save you the time you spend grading. Whether you are exploring ancient civilizations, U.S. History, or government, formative assessment will help you ensure that your students are following along and understanding the concepts that they need to know.
During the webinar, you’ll learn about features in Edulastic that will help you as a history teacher. You’ll learn from two middle school history teachers who are currently using digital assessment in their classrooms to create short cycle assessments and support instruction in the classroom. You’ll also learn about SnapQuiz- a quick way to upload and assign new assessments.

Meet the Speakers
Middle School Social Studies
Pinecrest Academy Inspirada
I have been teaching Social Studies and Spanish at the secondary level for 5 years. I started out at a high school in Ogden, UT, and now I teach 7th and 8th grade at Pinecrest Academy Inspirada in Henderson, NV. I also get to serve as my school’s Technology Lead teacher. I love helping other teachers use technology to take back some of their valuable planning and grading time while also providing fun, rewarding and relevant educational experiences to their students in the classroom.

I am Justin Crews. I teach 8th Grade Social Studies (US History) in Troy, Ohio. I have been teaching junior high Social Studies since 1999. I grew up in Lincoln City, Indiana where Abraham Lincoln lived with his family for 14 years. It sparked a lifelong passion for all things historical, but especially early American History and Lincoln.
