-Anticipation Guide: Ten true and false statements to identify what students know, what they think they know, and what they will learn. A PowerPoint presentation follows along printable lesson. An answer key is provided. Each anticipation guide question follows their according Cornell and PowerPoint to review the answer and acts as a warm-up.

-Cornell notes: Five Cornell notes are provided. There are two versions: filled and fill-in-the-blank for students to complete. A power point presentation follows the Cornell notes and leads whole class, direct instruction. A summary section is included where students answer essential questions. A drawing section is made available for students to add their own drawings or pictures from the power point presentation. Each criteria is worth one point making each Cornell worth five points.

-Activities: Five activities follow each Cornell notes 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 component, and an “excellent." Each criteria is worth one point making each activity worth five points.

-Power Point Presentations: Presentation guides direct instruction as students follow along and complete their Cornell notes. Presentation revisits anticipation guide statements at the beginning of the lesson and at the end (serves also as warm-up), has built-in mini quizzes (editable) at the end of each lesson to check for understanding (5 multiple choice questions students answer on the back of their notes), pictures to help learn the material, and starter sentences to support students complete the summary section of their Cornell notes.
