ThemeSpark is a collection of teaching tools that includes a lesson builder and a rubric maker. ThemeSpark’s QuickStart Lesson Builder breaks down lesson writing into four components called: hook, inform, practice, and apply. Teachers enter details for each component and the builder formats the lesson for printing or sharing online. The ThemeSpark rubric maker generates rubrics aligned to national standards frameworks like the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Teachers choose the standard they want to asses and receive a 4 point rubric with leveled performance expectations already written.
