Teacher-prepared notes show students what is important and how ideas relate, and offer a model for how students should take notes themselves (Marzano et al., 2001). This graphic organizer defines the word "precedent" for the students. Then, the notes explain three major precedents set by George Washington. Lastly, the notes give a brief overview of Hamilton's financial program for the new country. These notes come with a completed teacher version and a student fill-in-the-blank version.
