Why would you want this resource?

The resource’s format visually isolates features and content of the infographic for whole class examination and discussion prior to students reading the entire text (projected either as a .notebook or .pdf file).

An included TEACHER SCRIPT for use as pages are projected significantly reduces teacher planning time.

And, when it comes time for students to read the entire infographic, they can do so reading from printed pages or can view it electronically (.docx or .pdf). Students who have difficulty with reading can listen to the text using (additional) text to speech software.

Reading response questions vary in type and difficulty with the first three always having answers directly from the text for students still working their way towards answering more involved questions. Of course, teacher answers are provided.

There’s even a MATH question related to the text.

Infographics used in the resource have been chosen for their potential cross curricular use and include connections to math.

Start by reading the "Using the Resource" .pdf file.

Then, read the desired infographic's COMPLETE RESOURCE (e.g. "Feeling Happy Complete Resource" .pdf file.

Please respect usage rights. It has cost me a great deal of time and money to make this resource that I believe every teacher needs. I'd like to be able to afford to expand this resource.

If you teach in an educational district like I do, you're tired of hearing, "make it engaging, make it visual, make it accessible, use technology, reach every student" etc., because resources to make this happen don't exist (especially text to speech ready resources). Or, if they do, it's probably because you're giving up way too much of your life to be your own publisher. Your support is truly appreciated.
