ABOUT THE ZIP FILE DOWNLOAD
When you unzip the file, you'll get a folder that contains ten PDF files, one for each episode. All materials are conveniently grouped by episode to make it easy for teachers to find just what they need!
DIFFERENTIATED LEARNING GALORE!!
This WWII in HD Worksheet packet provides a variety of worksheet choices for each and every episode, which means that all the work that goes into differentiating material is already done for you.
For Episode 1, you will receive a multiple choice worksheet and a coordinated free-response worksheet. These both use the same questions but because one version lacks any answer suggestions, it's a lot more challenging.
You get even more choices for Episodes 2 through 10. For each of those episodes, you will receive a True/False worksheet as well as a multiple choice worksheet with a free response option. The True/False and Multiple Choice worksheets have completely different questions, though of course they do touch on some common topics from the WWII in HD episode under study. With this setup, you'll have three worksheets to choose from -- something for every ability level!
Even if you don't need to differentiate within a single class, you still may find the different worksheets really useful. For example, a true/false worksheet could be used during viewing, while a multiple-choice or free-response worksheet can be reserved for use as a "memory recall" test afterwards -- or vice-versa!
TEACHER CONVENIENCE FEATURES
• All questions presented in video order so students can use worksheets as a during-viewing activity.
• NO PREP NEEDED -- just print off copies and you're good to go!
• Quick correcting with provided answer keys
• Full context answer keys also provided -- these are great for reviewing content afterwards with the class!
