A way of getting your students to tell (show/draw) you what they know or remember about the chapter/text/unit/text/tale/story/presentation. I have an art degree and have always looked for items to make it easier for my students; plus many, many of my Special Ed students who have been enrolled in my class because their teachers KNOW I care for all students, and they know I began my teaching career in a SpEd classroom. Page one lets the students draw only in pencil without a grade attached to it. Page one is only a PRACTICE SHEET. Two and three may be used for a grade. I NEVER graded hard because 'as I always told the students 'you don’t have an Art Degree but I do''.
There is always something new when you shop at MrE's History Emporium. There are single day assignments, chapter assignments, history month assignments, festival assignments, Task Cards, Tic Tac Toe, parish items, freebie items, games, etc. You can find World history items, general history items, American history items, Louisiana history items (my long-time favorite) and high school U.S. States history items.
My store is NEVER closed – phew, I'm so sleepy - and has over 600 items. As a former teacher I just WISHED I had had all of these items at my beck and call. Oh, I had lots and lots of these simple items but back when I stated teaching over 30 years ago I had the book, nothing else. But since I was medically forced to retire, I have created hundreds of new items such as the one you have now. I'm always running sales monthly adding new links depending on the events that are "currently" happening around my own state or region or section of the country. I always have customers milling around I my store purchasing items they think their own students might enjoy.
I've been told the only way to stay alive is to keep breathing. This is what I'm doing since my mini-stroke three years ago. I just keep searching and keep creating new and different items. I have gotten tons of emails from current teachers, student teachers, college education majors, etc. Each telling me how much they like 'this, that, or the other" item. It makes my heart smile.
I have always liked to 'doodle' and draw in the margins; anything that could help me remember the story. I have ALWAYS graded easy if students could just give me an idea that they remembered what we just covered. I'm sure there will be many more of these assignments in the future as I set here just "daydreaming" of other ways to get through to students.
