★ Cornell notes:
There are two versions--filled and fill-in-the-blank. Notes are completed by following along with the presentation. This allows you to walk around and support students, engage with students, or sit comfortably in your seat. There are five criteria to the Cornell notes: header, student notes, drawings of main ideas, summary, and student-derived question (Depths of Knowledge). The header includes the Next Generation Science Standards.
Presentation guides direct instruction as students follow along and complete their Cornell notes.

This is a PDF and is not editable.
An activity follows the Cornell note in order to support and reinforce students' understanding of the content and provide students an opportunity to think critically by creating something new with the input received from the notes. There are five criteria: written portion, art, color, reflection, and an “excellent" component to encourage students to do a quality piece of work.
★ Special Assignments (labs, projects, etc.):
All special assignments come with directions and rubrics. Templates for some special assignments are included.
★ Test and quizzes (EDITABLE):
One test and quiz are included with answer keys. A reflection activity follows giving students an opportunity to reflect on their understanding and studying skills.
★ Grading suggestions:
Each criteria is worth one point making each Cornell and activity worth five points. For easy grading, simply circle missing components or stamp to designate full credit. As a teacher, I am out the door after the bell rings and I do not bring any grading home. I truly am the teacher time saver!
