This assignment was created in Word. The first sheet is an information sheet referencing the cancer causes and risk factors. The second sheet is the worksheet that goes along with the information sheet. The questions on the worksheet go in order of the information so the students don't have to needlessly search through the information sheet for their answers. This assignment also reinforces reading comprehension. The KEY is included.
This assignment is used on the computer with a drop box such as Blackboard, PowerSchool or School Space. It can be quickly and easily converted into a printable paper copy by simply removing the blue asterisks and adding lines for the students to write their answers instead of typing them. I use this format often so that we can save paper by using electronic copies of assignments.
The student answers the questions by placing the cursor between the blue asterisks and begins typing the answer - that way they can easily see that they've answered the question and I can easily grade the assignment by reading what they've typed in blue. A nice feature of assignments that are used on the computer along with an information sheet is that the assignment can be 'pinned' to one side of the computer screen and the information sheet pinned to the other so the student can see both the assignment and the information they're working from at the same time. I love technology!
