Directions of Optimal Implementation of Lesson:
1. I HIGHLY recommend that teachers use both the PowerPoint and the graphic organizer in tandem. The notes provided by the PowerPoint exactly correlate to the graphic organizer (Word document) notes. Teachers should provide students with the graphic organizer notes and then proceed with delivering the PowerPoint-based lecture. As the lecture is delivered via PowerPoint, student should be expected to take notes (I ABSOLUTELY recommend handwritten notes) within the graphic organizer version of the lecture.
2. I highly recommend researching the lecture content before delivering it, as I have found that students are discouraged when they feel teachers simply "read the PowerPoint to them."
***I recommend adding video links and compelling visuals to the PowerPoints. I had to delete many video links and pictures due to copyright concerns.***
