Description

Are you tired of teaching with presentations that look like they were probably created in 1995? Are you ready to move past the "sit and get" style of whole group instruction? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then this resource is for you!

I spent almost a decade fighting to keep students entertained. By the end of the day, I was exhausted and the kids were bored. I createdthis line of interactive lessons to solve that problem for myself and hopefully for you too.

Keep your students engaged and accountable with this interactive, versatile presentation. Embedded frequently within these 24 colorful slides are multiple stopping points that require students to predict, reflect, connect, and think critically about the information being presented.

There are a variety of softwares you can use (such as Nearpod and Peardeck) that connect to Google Slides to ensure student participation. Alternatively, you could also simply assign each student a copy of this presentation and have them type in the slides directly.

As a post-pandemic teacher, I want resources that can be used in person, face to face, hybrid, and virtual. My Google Slides lessons are designed to be compatible with multiple styles of teaching, and are perfect for teaching, reteaching, or even sending to absent students.

The topics covered in this presentation include:

  • what is a model
  • why are models used
  • how to develop a model
  • how to evaluate a model

Who is this resource for?

This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-9. It comprehensively covers the topics mentioned, and provides opportunities for student responses which can be implemented in a whole group lesson or assigned for homework.

How Can I Use this Resource?

  • Whole or small group instruction 
  • Emergency sub plans
  • Stations - for independent work or with a co-teacher
  • Flipped classroom pre-reading
  • Differentiation – assign this presentation as reteaching for students who have yet to show mastery.
  • Homework 
  • Creation of independent work for students who are not able to be present for direct instruction
  • Use as a square on a choice board

What's Included?

Purchase includes a printable PDF file in color. On page 2 of this resource you will find a link to a student friendly Google Slide version of this file. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.
