Product Description
Here's a great, multi-purpose tool all teachers should have. This study guide will integrate with any content you are teaching right now, for nearly any subject-area teacher. The best part though, is your students will work harder on this than you ever will (muuuahahahh - semi-evil laugh). Okay, seriously, here's what this is all about:

- Students create a study guide for the current topic by making test questions.

- Students create 2 styles of test questions that require analytical thought: Analytical multiple choice questions and word-relationship questions, which I think is similar to Miller-Analogy Test style test questions - but not exact. (MAT style questions are more X : Y :: T : __)

- The word-relationship, higher order thinking questions are the pride and joy of this assignment. Students must think of 4 concepts, vocabulary words, or phrases that share a commonality. They then must think of a 4th concept, word, or phrase that does not fit the pattern of the other 3 concepts, words or phrases. See screenshot of teachers guide examples. Then, the must explain why the incorrect concept, word or phrase does not match the pattern of the other 3.

- The multiple choice questions are analytical, and are required to be at least Costa's level 2 or greater, and students must explain why the other 3 of 4 answers are not correct as well as why the correct answer is correct.

For Best Results:
- Use this assignment at the end of a unit or lesson
- Use this assignment after teaching new vocabulary
- Require students to have out an organized 3-ring notebook as they will need to flip through that and use it to create these questions (as a teacher, it is so uplifting to see your kids flipping through notes and classwork and thinking and analyzing)
- This assignment pairs well with a notebook check
- Circulate around the room as students work providing positive encouragement
- Create a rule that students must work cooperatively, and they cannot ask the teacher questions (besides clarification questions obviously).
- Use groups of no more than 2, but require students to produce unique and original work.

A teacher notes page is included in this file, but it's not intended to be copied as part of the student handout. There, you'll find 3 examples you can show to your students.
