Electrical Energy Instructional PowerPoint Readers' Theater for PowerPoint 2013. Bringing science education to a whole new level in an attention capturing format. Keeps the interest of your students while teaching the “meat” of electrical energy to elementary grades. Includes insulators, conductors, circuit, series circuit, parallel circuit, complete circuit, incomplete circuit, electromagnet, and static electricity. The reader's theater format gets students really excited about reading. They wait eagerly for their part to come up so that it's their turn to read. At first, many students are painfully inept at reading, but as they read slide after slide, PowerPoint after PowerPoint, even the most struggling student's reading becomes very fluent. They learn to love to read, and the tricky science vocabulary becomes second nature to them. Within a short time, it is like a magical student reading metamorphosis! Without this fluent reading ability, and the deep understanding of science vocabulary, students are not able to perform well on standardized tests. With the fluency and vocabulary understanding, the same students soar to high academic levels. The PowerPoint also contains practice with drawing electrical circuits using electrician’s symbols. After the students draw the circuit, then they go to their lab tables to build the circuit that they drew. The slides also contain continual vocabulary practice in a game-like format.
