Teaching with Atomsmith > How It All Works > Teaching Resources
As a teacher, you have access to numerous resources that will help you use Atomsmith® in your classroom:
|The "Teachers" Menu in the Model Window provides you with instant access to all supporting teaching materials, including Teacher's Guides, Worksheet Answers (pdf), Worksheets that you can customize (MS Word) and links to short, curriculum-enhancing videos. (Note: The "Teachers" menu item is inaccessible when the software is installed under a student license.)
|The Atomsmith Classroom Teacher’s Guide (pdf) provides an overall guide to using the software and the curriculum. It includes a description of the software's functionality and philosophy, a suggested student assessment rubric, "getting acquainted" suggestions, and an example plan for curriculum integration (into your existing curriculum).
|A Teacher’s Guide for each Lesson and Experiment provides an overview "Experiment Description" and ideas for Introducing the Topic, as well as "Learning Objectives," estimated "Time Requirements" and simple "Teacher Preparation" suggestions. Just select an Experiment, then go to the "Teachers" menu to open the coinciding Teacher's Guide.
|Answers to Worksheet questions are provided in pdf format.
|All Worksheets are also provided in MS Word format, so if desired, you can customize them to your specific needs. In addition, this format allows you to provide the Worksheets to your students who can then answer the questions directly on their computers.
|Links to short Curriculum-Enhancing Videos are part of the Teacher's materials. You may choose to play these for your students at the onset or completion of Lessons to enhance their interest in specific curriculum topics.|
|"Send Email to Bitwixt Support" in the Model Window’s "Help" menu allows you to contact Bitwixt with questions regarding both the software’s functionality and its curriculum. All reasonable attempts will be made to answer your question prior to the following school day.|
Bitwixt personnel are also happy to participate in teacher development training. Just contact us to inquire about scheduling an event.
