Teacher Mode

Use Teacher Mode to run a sample lesson or quiz for a chapter in one of your libraries.

Teacher mode allows you to use the program without collecting data. Use it to demonstrate the program to students or to create classroom activities.

To start, follow these steps:

  1. If you have more than one school, select the drop-down list and choose the school whose libraries you want to use.
  2. Select the library that you want to use.
  3. Select the chapter that you want to use.
  4. Select an activity (a lesson or quiz).
  5. The activity will begin.
  6. If you do not have the Adobe Flash Player, the activity will not launch; see your school's technology/computer coordinator. Note that supporting software must be installed so all users of the computer can use it. Administrative rights on an individual computer are part of your school's computer security policy. For more information, see your school's technology/computer coordinator.

    If you chose a lesson, English in a Flash will show you the same words and pictures that students will see for that lesson.

    Use the button to hear a word again. The button is available in the pretest, quizzes, and lessons 3, 4, and 5.

    Select to go back to the previous word. This button is available in lessons 3, 4, and 5.

    Select to pause the lesson, and to start playing it again.

    Select to stop watching the lesson.

    If you chose a quiz, you will see the same quiz that students will be given. You can answer each question as a student would. You can also choose to repeat a question, pause the quiz, or stop it using the buttons on the right.

    If you stop a lesson or quiz, you will be asked to continue or exit. (If you watch the lesson or take the quiz until it ends, only the exit button will be available.) Select exit when you are ready to go back to the Teacher Mode page.

You can also view Library Guides and Chapter Guides with information on each chapter containing the lessons and quizzes.

Information about recommended reading lists is also available in the English in a Flash Resources. The English in a Flash recommended reading lists (for students doing independent reading) are provided in Accelerated Reader BookFinder (www.arbookfind.com). Lists are reviewed weekly and books are added as they become available.
