In the world of a teacher, time is the commodity that we can't seem to get enough of. We're always looking for ways to get extra minutes in our day, especially writing teachers. Imagine having to grade or review 120 papers. How long will it take you? You need tools to give you time back. Enter the Checkmark Chrome extension by EdTechTeam.

Checkmark was developed by the fine folks at EdTechTeam to help writing teachers reclaim a small part of their lives. Once you have the extension installed, it's simply a matter of highlighting text and clicking a button to leave a comment for students.

That's it! You're well on your way to reclaiming time and helping your students become better writers with just a few clicks of the mouse.

If you haven't heard about EdTechTeam, be sure to visit their site and find a Summit or Bootcamp near you and get a ticket. It's some of the best professional development you can find!

If you can't make it to an EdTechTeam event, I highly recommend you check out one of these books from EdTechTeam Press. I couldn't recommend them more highly.
