    • Edmodo
      • Create an account on GCS' Edmodo site.
      • Find your school code here. Enter that code when prompted.

    • Discovery Education (Please contact your school's Media Specialist for the passcode that's required for registration)

3. Take a quick quiz ("Prerequisite: Reviewing the ITES") on the Edmodo ITES Trainees Group page. Once you begin the quiz, you must finish it within 60 minutes. There are only 2 questions to answer. On average, it's taken 7 minutes to complete. Note: You must be a member of our group to see and complete the quiz. See the Edmodo info under number 2 above.
