Product Description
Is it even humanly possible to make the process of collecting, reviewing, and grading THOUSANDS of index cards and dozens of student outlines anywhere near enjoyable? Add a double dose of FUN to your student-centered classroom with this research and pre-writing bundle product, which will provide you with all that you'll need to bring two outstanding writing and review activities to life in your classroom as early as tomorrow!

This bundle package combines the complete Attack The Barracks Research Note Card Review Game With LEGO! game and Research / Pre-writing / Essay Outline Review Game with Pokémon! that are sold separately in my store at a combined savings of $1 over purchasing both products separately!

If you're like me, you know firsthand that teaching long form research papers can be one of the single most EXHAUSTING parts of any teacher's calendar year. Writing thesis statements. Hitting up online libraries and databases. Forcing students to pay super close attention to increasingly antiquated formatting requirements. And then -- joy of joys -- the academic death march that is the prospect of collecting all of those note cards, knowing full well that many students will likely have raced their way through them on their way into your classroom simply to meet arbitrary number quotas.

(Not to mention the inevitable soul-crushing defeat of having to RE-TEACH the entire note card formatting process all over again, when large groups of students actually sit down to write their research paper only to realize that their poorly constructed note cards won't do them a lick of good!).

For me, note cards and outlines used to be the single worst part of my teaching calendar. So I decided to turn the entire research and pre-writing process into a series of high-energy teaching games.

And now I've got kids RACING to class to show their work!
