Add or eliminate boxes to support varied levels of learning, experience, and time constraints.
For more advanced students, ask them to prioritize their Top Ten Lists.
If studying a historical time period, for example, assign different groups of students different historical events and historical figures. Then, come back as a whole group to share.
Top Ten Lists are a great way to start organizing a PowerPoint/Google Slides/Prezi presentations. They will help students focus their information to ten slides.
Facts can include things such as quotes, attributes, concepts, examples, time periods, causes and effects, steps involved, tips, hints, categories, and impact.
Top Ten Lists can also be done as a station/center. Give needed guidelines such as, “Create a Top Ten List about Tom Sawyer” or “Create a Top Ten List about Chapter 4 of The Pinballs.”
These lists can also be done as a whole group as part of the “Checking for Understanding” portion of a Madeline Hunter Lesson Plan. Do this on an Elmo, SmartBoard, overhead, or have a blown-up, laminated poster size of necessary Top Ten List.
Use finished Top Ten Lists as anchor charts or reviews for upcoming assessments. They can be displayed on an Elmo or SmartBoard. Additionally, these Top Ten lists could be enlarged by a local printing company. Then laminate them for multiple uses.
Create a comb-bound book or packet of Top Ten Lists to use at the end of each chapter, lesson, week, or unit throughout the school year. This will make an excellent keepsake or study guide.
If a student struggles with writing, have pre-made Top Ten Lists with the strips cut apart. Student chooses the Top Ten things that fit or are most pertinent to him/her.
Use a Top Ten List as an Exit Ticket for each class. Students could be responsible for completing it throughout the class period or as a quick assignment at the end of the lesson. Students could work together or share to make this happen more quickly, if necessary.
Lists included are: Character, Lesson, Experiment, Reading, Event, Assembly, Historical Figure, Historical Event, Chapter, Unit, Quarter, Week, and Day.
