The is Part of my Instant Curriculum (Just Add Teacher): American History II (1877 to Present) Bundle.
This is the complete 1st Unit. The other 7 units are part of the larger bundle.
WHAT YOU GET FOR THIS UNIT: (ALL My Units are designed the exact same way)
UNIT 1 is 53 slides. (typically anywhere from 50-190 slides each.... half of which are pictures... every bit of information needed for class is here. Unit 1 is the smallest power points since its the start of the semester and time is always used to focus on class expectations.)
(Students do NOT copy off the PowerPoint... they have notes with the same information, but with CONCEPT questions on every slide they have to answer with two full sentences)
(ALL the vocabulary word definitions are in the notes, and all the vocabulary words are underlined.... I even give my kids a grade for going through and highlighting the vocabulary word and definition in the notes.... and a second grade for defining the vocabulary word on the designated page)
(We start class with CNN10 each day as a bell ringer..... students have to write down three topics they talk about and why it's significant... we discuss this as a class afterwards to get class started)
(If your school district requires these, they are already done for you)
(The students will write an essay on their tests, these are a list of the 5 POSSIBLE choices and the rubric they are to study for each.... honestly, for lower classes, I tell them in advance what their essay will be... it's easy to add or lower difficulty here based on the class)
(The "I Can Statements", "CNN 10 Viewing Guide", "Vocabulary Words", "Notes", and "Possible Essay Questions" are already organized into a single document for the students)
(this is the 30 Word vocabulary quiz that goes along with the Unit. It has a word bank that goes along with it with two groups of 15.... the definitions are verbatim what is in the notes, and all the words are used, and they are used only once... and as an added bonus... I figured out how to effectively use a scan-tron to grade vocabulary quizzes which will be self-explanatory when you see it. )
(The multiple choice portion has 50 questions. After the first unit, about 35% of the test questions are from previous tests.... the cumulative test questions drastically improve student's scores at the end of the semester)
(This is my preferred method of testing.... this combines the Essay Question(s), Vocabulary Quiz and Multiple Choice Portion into one document. This is preferred in a Block (or 1.5 hour class) system. If you are on a 7 period day schedule it might be better to break it up for time constraints.)
(The day after the test, I always do test corrections.... since my tests are cumulative, they need to see the questions they missed... instructions are clear on the form how to do them... I typically give my standard students half credit back and my honors students just get an assignment grade for completion and no change to their test grade)
BONUS! This Bundle has links to the Unit 1 Kahoot and Quizlet. I have added a link to a Quizlet and Kahoot for EACH Unit... that is ONLY available with this Bundle!
(every unit has a Kahoot with the first 25 multiple choice questions on the test. The link is provided for each Unit)
(I have a quizlet of every vocab word with it's definition for each Unit. The Link is provided for each Unit. Quizlet Live is extremely effective study tool)
