This 45 slide Powerpoint covers the most frequently asked about topics on the New York State Global Regents. The presentation is arranged chronologically and each slide contains the main topic and one sample question on that topic from a NYSR given since 2013.
The product is designed so that it can have multiple applications. The most simple way is to use it as a study guide for students to practice answering questions. One simple click reveals the correct answer.
Here are my suggestions for expanding its applications with students or for your own classroom use:
-Type one sentence explaining why the answer is correct.
-Locate old Global Regents exams at nysedregents.org/GlobalHistoryGeography/ Copy and paste additional questions into the appropriate topics.
-Upload the document to google drive and have other students contribute to the presentation with pictures, notes, links and other resources on that topic.
The slideshow concludes with a final slide on helpful online review resources.
I designed this to be used in my classroom so that we can practice a topic a day and use the practice question as a spring board for a quick 3 minute brainstorm/review to close each class with.
Finally, you will notice the the practice questions are text only (no political cartoons, maps, or readings). This has been done to maximize the readability of the questions when projected for a classroom.
