Validity and reliability is not an easy concept to understand and even harder to teach to 5th graders. But, this resource makes it a piece of cake. This PowerPoint teaches about primary and secondary resources in a fun and interactive way. It incorporates the gradual release model (each slide is clearly labeled with each part of the process), collaborative strategies, and the interactive reading journal. The notes at the bottom of each slide provide the teacher with step by step instructions for teaching. It easily explains the concepts and gives a detailed "script" to make lesson planning so easy! On top of this, the PowerPoint format is easy to adapt to any teaching style.
I have personally used this resource to model for quite a few teachers. I have seen it used very effectively by first year teachers and veteran teachers with excellent student results. Try it today!
