I discovered how much more engaged students were when I presented information as a power point with an interactive study guide. The students are attentive while having to fill in the blanks with info from the power point AND I realized they were retaining the information!
I kept the study guide pages black, white, and printer friendly. I have included information that meets Tennessee’s Standards relating to TN History.
** This resource can be used before – as a preview, during – as a recap, and after –for reviewing for a test. I also like that when a student is absent … I load the power point and they can still take notes (in the classroom or at home). The students now have a guide to study and quiz themselves in preparation for assessments.
** I use interactive notebooks in my classroom. Students trim down the pages and paste into the composition notebooks. You may choose to place in a folder or spiral notebook for safe- keeping.
Within the power point, I have embedded a couple of opportunities to stop and think or discuss the information. (I use these questions for quick writes and exit tickets!)
