Description

Teach your Middle School students how to analyze arguments in text with a PowerPoint and interactive guided notes that I call Pixanotes®. Students will learn a 3 step process that they can use with any text.

Pixanotes® are a blend of the structure of traditional two-column notes and visual/interactive notes. There are 4 versions all with the same content so that all students can get what they need.

This resource comes with both a printable AND digital version!

(See below to get just one or other other.)

The printable version includes:

★ An original text: "Should College Athletes be Paid?"

★ Four versions of Pixanotes® with different levels of scaffolding

Level 1: Fully printed content and pre-printed pictures

Level 2: Fully printed picture flaps and fill in the blanks for students

Level 3: Pre-printed content and picture flaps that need to be positioned by the

student.

Level 4: Fill-in-the-blanks for content and picture flaps that need to be positioned

by the student.

(see a free video about Pixanotes by clicking here.)

★ Word bank (for more advanced students to use instead of the PowerPoint)

★ Picture flaps

★ PowerPoint that matches the notes.

The digital version made with Google Slides and Google Forms includes:

★ Teacher's Guide with directions and links to share on any learning management system such as Google Classroom, Canvas and more!

★ An embedded introduction video

★ An original embedded text: "Should College Athletes be Paid?"

★ Four versions of Pixanotes® with different levels of scaffolding

Level 1: Fully printed content and pre-printed pictures

★ Text boxes already placed into the notes

★ Editable directions for the student

★ Self-Grading "Quick Check" Activity - could be used as a quiz!

This lesson is ready to go and can be easily shared in Google Classroom or on any Learning Management System!
