NEVER BEFORE HAVE YOU SEEN A POWERPOINT LIKE THIS!!!
I have spent at least 14 hours creating this one PowerPoint. WHY? I have a FLIPPED CLASSROOM and understand that students must be engaged in what they see in order to want to learn. My students can't get enough of these highly engaging PowerPoint because they are all ANIMATED with VIDEO CLIPS, and done in a game style format. This can easily be used in any classroom for a fun lesson to teach this content. I also use this as a reference tool for students to continuously refer back to if they need a refresher. This helps differentiate the needs of my diverse learners.
The focus of this lesson is PRE-READING A NONFICTION TEXT. Students will be led through pre-reading skills that will help them think through Non-Fiction text. Students are challenged to look at text features, bolded words, charts, etc in order to create a reading plan (purpose) for them to hold their thinking with while they read. They are engaged because the PowerPoint is completed in a "game board, and there are fun animations along the way that keep them interested with the information. Students are asked to independently assess their pre-reading skills, create a plan of attack to help become a strategic reader, and create their own understanding as to why pre-reading is so important.
INCLUDED WITH THE POWERPOINT:
*Make printables from the PowerPoint slides to help reinforce student learning.
*I can statements to help students focus their learning.
*Hyperlinked screen to help students "jump" to their area of need.
*Challenging journal questions at the end to prove student understanding.
*Student Practice: Students are given practice opportunities to help them reinforce their learning.
This is an ADVANCED POWERPOINT and works for computers that have PowerPoint Version 2010 or 2012.
Due to the large file size I could not get the videos and animations to work on the preview. They will all work on the purchased versions though.
