Teacher-prepared notes show students what is important and how ideas relate, and offer a model for how students should take notes themselves (Marzano et al., 2001). These notes begin by asking the students to read through a cartoon that explains the big question the colonists faced after the American Revolution: Who shall be in charge? This graphic organizer explains that the first attempt to unify the colonies was done under the Articles of Confederation 1781-1788. Lastly, these notes look at the powers that the states and national governments had under the Articles of Confederation, and the inherit weakness of that type of government. This comes with a completed teacher edition and a fill-in-the-blank student edition. Ready to print and ready to go!
