★ Warm-up: Two true or false statements are provided to identify what students know, what they think they know, and what they will learn. The warm-ups are built into the presentation with the answers provided towards the end of the lesson.
★ Cornell notes: Four Cornell notes are provided. There are three versions: filled, filled and underlined, and fill-in-the-blank for students to complete. A presentation (PDF and not editable) follows the Cornell notes and leads whole class, direct instruction. A summary section is included where students answer essential questions. A drawing section is made available for students to add their own drawings or pictures from the presentation. Each criteria is worth one point making each Cornell worth five points.
★ Activities: Four activities follow each Cornell notes 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 component, and an “excellent." Each criteria is worth one point making each activity worth five points.
★ Presentations: Presentation guides direct instruction as students follow along and complete their Cornell notes. Presentation revisits anticipation guide statements at the beginning of the lesson and at the end (serves also as warm-up), has built-in mini quiz at the end of each lesson to check for understanding (5 multiple choice questions with answers), pictures to help learn the material, and starter sentences to support students complete the summary section of their Cornell notes. The presentation is a PDF and is not editable in order to secure clip art from other Teachers pay Teachers.
★ Grading: For easy grading, simply circle missing components or stamp to designate full credit. It’s that easy--I don’t take any grading home and I’m out of the door when the bell rings after school!!
