I use to chuckle when students frowned at my Kindle Paperwhite because it lacked both color and games. However, the same students avoided being selected to read aloud a sentence if not a paragraph during a lesson. At-Risk, alliterate and illiterate students avoid reading on a high school level when they fall within a grade 5-8 reading level, and my Kindle Paperwhite provided a resolution to increase both their reading and engagement in the classroom.
Kindle Notes will allow teachers to develop unit/lecture notes for such students who struggle to master vocabulary terms. Each set of bracket and text box are grouped wherein teachers can move them freely throughout the document. To make changes, simply ungroup the bracket and text box and either hold the "Shift" key when stretching the bracket to fit above a term, or double click in the text box to update the definition. When finished, group both items together again to regain the original layout. Note: Double space is highly recommended for this template, so please do not reduce the spacing. You can alter the color of the definition text box if you so choose.
Researched-Based Results: This differentiated resource empowered my low-performing students not only to participate in class but to read, because they were able to blend in with their peers with ease.
