Content standard/ Assessment tool:
There really is no content standard that can be used here. There is not student work involved so there wouldn’t be an assessment tool either. But you could post about the goals for the week/month and what the standards are that you are working on in the class right now to keep the parents informed. Then if the students are posting their homework online, you could post the assessment tools online and even rubrics if you wanted.
This is a valuable tool to have because it is a quick easy way to create a central location for your students and parents to be able to communicate and keep up to date.
