About Your Resource:
Your download is a .ppt file, sized to print on 8.5 x 11" paper. You can use each task as-is, or you can edit them to fit the needs of your classroom. For example, the Syllabus Close Read contains 10 preformatted questions based off of my syllabus, but then you get a Question Bank of 40 questions. You can copy and paste these into the quiz to make this resource work for your students.
The backgrounds of the activity pages and station cards have been flattened to preserve title fonts and formatting, but you can edit the text itself. This video
shows how to edit your resource. Instructions for use and copyright information are included in this resource. Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have any questions. :)
