Product Details:

-Cornell notes: There are two versions--filled and fill-in-the-blank. Notes are completed by following along with the presentation. This allows you to walk around and support students, engage with students, or sit comfortably in your seat. There are five criteria to the Cornell notes: header, student notes, drawings of main ideas, summary, and student-derived question (Depths of Knowledge).

-Presentation: Presentation guides direct instruction as students follow along and complete their Cornell notes. Presentation revisits anticipation guide statements from the beginning of the lesson and at the end (serves as warm-up), has built-in mini quizzes at the end of each lesson to check for understanding (5 multiple choice questions students answer on the back of their notes), pictures to help learn the material, and starter sentences to support students complete the summary section of their Cornell notes (differentiated instruction).

-Activity: An activity follows the Cornell note in order to support and reinforce students' understanding of the content and provide students an opportunity to think critically by creating something new with the input received from the notes. There are five criteria: written portion, art, color, reflection, and an “excellent" component to encourage students to do a quality piece of work.

-Grading:
Each criteria is worth one point making each Cornell and activity worth five points. For easy grading, simply circle missing components or stamp to designate full credit. As a teacher, I am out the door after the bell rings and I do not bring any grading home. I truly am the teacher time saver!
