Conceptual. I like to teach concepts interactively through role-play. I always try to tie my lessons into something from pop/culture that the kids will recognize. It helps that I'm a giant kid and play as many video games, read as many comic books, and watch more cartoons than they do.

I also develop lessons to order. If you like the lessons you see here and want me to create a specific social studies or science lesson, send me a message. For each lesson I will create a PowerPoint aligned to state (or national) standards, all of the necessary handouts and graphic organizers, a summarizing activity, and detailed teaching directions. The cost is $5. Please allow 2 days for creation. Thanks!
