This product contains 20 PowerPoint presentations with note-taking guides.
My powerpoint presentations are typically short and sweet. You will not see slides with an overwhelming amount of information. What you will see are topics that have distilled the information that is most important to know. Most of my note guides have questions for students to answer as they view the presentation. This will help them digest the information and often lead to great class discussion.
The note taking guides use "Cloze" type notes, bullet points notes, and chart completion.
