This PowerPoint will take students through how to make a cue card in easy to follow along steps. There are 9 slides total with the final slide showing what a cue card should look like when finished.
I have used this in my class to demonstrate how to make a cue card after students have finished their research for their biography speeches.
This PowerPoint it totally customizable to your tastes. The content and the layout is what is most important, but that too can be changed.
I also give a 3x5 note card to my students when we go over this lesson and ask them to fill out their note card as we go over the steps... this way they have an example in their notes.
