7.A bonus slide is provided at the end. It is a slide that I use on a regular basis.
-I like to make the agenda/announcements slide for each day first, and then backwards plan from there.
-Instead of recording my plans in a plan book, they are automatically recorded and archived on these slides. I save them to refer to for future planning.
-The DO NOW! slide is meant to be projected for students when they enter the room. A warm-up style task is displayed there and students complete it when they arrive.
-Post the agenda/announcements slide for your students to see too. It can be a guide for you and for them. For example, I will often put "hand back papers" on the agenda and it forces me to not forget to hand them back.
-I like to post instructions for activities on the slides. I want students to follow the written directions before they ask me what they are supposed to be doing.
-Create an exit question that you want students to answer at the end of each class period.
