➤ What are "Guided Notes?" Guided Notes are printed sheets or digital slides that contain all of the information contained in a presentation, BUT - there are blanks with missing pertinent information that students need to fill in. Students can complete the guided notes as you present OR go through the presentation on their own and fill in the blanks.

➤ Note: YouTube videos can be changed or removed over time. If there are any issues with the linked videos, please email me at rivianmedia@gmail.com and I will get them updated ASAP!
