NEVER BEFORE HAVE YOU SEEN A POWERPOINT LIKE THIS!!!
I have spent at least 22 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 HOW TO READ AND THINK THROUGH A GEOGRAPHY TEXTBOOKS. Students will be introduced to pre-reading strategies of a geography text, how to figure out the main idea through annotations, and how to make they have mental Velcro to keep their thinking when they are done reading. They are engaged because the format of the PowerPoint is much like a newscast background. Students are asked to independently create their own working definition of HOW TO THINK THROUGH A GEOGRAPHY TEXT in an interactive way.
INCLUDED INSIDE 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 can use this to practice in your geography book.
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.
