TOS Review - Help Teaching Pro Plan

HelpTeaching Review
I usually enjoy coming up with lesson plans and learning alongside my children, but there are days when I wish I had someone else to help me teach, do the research and hand me the worksheets, videos, lesson plans and tests that I need especially for planning lessons with my 8th and 10th grade Middle and High School students. So, when I had a chance to review the Pro Plan from HelpTeaching.com, I was anxious to see what it was all about.



What is the Pro Plan from HelpTeaching.com?


IT'S LIKE HAVING YOUR OWN PERSONAL TEACHER'S ASSISTANT AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!


I received a one-year subscription to the online Pro Plan. There is so much that this site offers that it is hard to know where to start to explain it all. I'll start by saying that it's appropriately named as it can literally help you teach just about everything. It's almost like having your personal teacher assistant right at your fingertips.

It offers a variety of ready made lessons for K-12 levels, or gives you the freedom to create your own worksheets and tests. You can follow a great deal of lessons online, as it uses videos from their own site as well as links to lessons from other teaching videos like those found on Kahn Academy. Print tests and worksheets with access to answer keys, or have students take tests online with immediate feedback.

How Did We Use It?

I was asked to use this site at least three times per week during the review period. I logged on almost every day to become familiar with the site and to see what it had to offer.

When I received the log-on instructions, the creator of the site included helpful tips to get started. So, I began by following these guidelines:
  1. I began by browsing the library of pre-made tests, worksheets and activities for Pre-K through Grade 12. These can be scheduled to be taken online or printed to e taken offline using traditional pencil and paper.
  2. I then browsed the online self-directed lessons. There was a note that the site is adding between 5 to 10 new lessons every week, and this seemed to be true as the lesson choices seemed to grow each time I logged on.
  3. I then used the test maker to create custom tests. You have the option of using public questions or creating your own custom questions.
  4. Finally, I tried the printable worksheets of addition/division/subtraction and the games section which offered bingo cards and word search generators.
After logging in, this is what you see on the screen:

You have the option of choosing Tests and Worksheets, Lessons and Games - Some are ready made, or you can create your own using their worksheet, test generators (Test Maker), or create your own content to game boards, like Bingo or word searches.

If you have your own lesson content material, the worksheet and game generators are extremely easy to use. For the most part, you just choose the format you want to use, type in the information you want to present to your student, and generate what you need to print out. There are also online test options.

My 8th Grader loved the Grammar cat:

The site provides links to additional sites like this one that my daughter loved for learning geometry while playing pool. Just one thing to keep in mind is that the sites you are taken to are carefully chosen but do still have their own ads that appear, so if you're concerned about freedom on the internet, just be sure to monitor their use.

What Did We Think?

This Pro Plan from HelpTeaching.com is very easy to use and is packed with just about any topic and grade level you need. I found it extremely easy to use and was happy to see my children actually become excited to use it - Especially the videos within the pre-made lessons and the links to other learning sites. I was thrilled to discover my Middle Schooler actually enjoying the video lesson which surprised me because she is my biggest curriculum critic and doesn't typically enjoy online lessons. With the option of generating your own worksheets and tests, the site is virtually limitless in its resource for helping to teach.
