This assignment is a 2-page Word document that reinforces reading comprehension along with knowledge of the human brain. The questions can be answered from the assignment itself - no researching the internet or other documents for the answers. This assignment involves reading a paragraph or two, then answering questions from the paragraph just read.
This assignment is used on the computer with a drop box such as Blackboard, PowerSchool or School Space. It can be quickly and easily converted into a printable paper copy by simply removing the asterisks and adding lines for the students to write their answers instead of typing them. I use this format often so that we can save paper by using electronic copies of assignments.
The student answers the questions by placing the cursor between the red asterisks and begins typing the answer - that way they can easily see that they've answered the question and I can easily grade the assignment by reading what they've typed in red. The student's completed assignment will look very much like the answer KEY if they've answered the questions correctly. I love technology!
If you'd like to make this a printed paper copy, simply delete the asterisks and add lines for answers instead.
