This handout is mentioned in several of my presentations available in my store. I found in most conferences I was either jotting down confirmation of things I was already doing in my classroom that I should keep doing, things that I wanted to learn more about, or things that I wanted to turn right around and use in my classroom. This simple handout provides a space for all three of those possibilities. I like providing it at the start of a presentation to encourage note-taking and to humbly explain that I realize things I am discussing may be things already going on in classrooms, but hopefully there are new take-aways as well.
The handout includes three sections for taking notes.
1. High Five- confirms what I already knew and affirms what I already do!
2. Hmmm.... I'm interested in learning more about...
3. Lights, Camera, Action- I plan to do this in my classroom.
