MY TEACHING STYLE

For TpT I have created an entire original curriculum over the past 12 years. I ditched the textbooks early in my career and opted for students to create their own textbooks with use of a learning journal. I began converting everything I was doing into a super charged form of PowerPoint. I have posted 20 different science units in Life, Earth, and Physical Science, and hundreds of smaller posting which are just small parts of these 20 units. The units use elaborate PowerPoint Presentations to deliver important notes, direct lab activities, provide follow-up questions, prompts for videos, and includes assessments, modified assessments, class notes, and answers to the assessments for support staff. My use of PowerPoint is high energy, with as much interaction between students and teacher as possible. I don't give the students anything for free, and they must engage to move one. Great thought questions, meaningful activities that reinforce instruction, tons of review opportunities, exciting video shorts, projects and much more are built right into the slideshow. I consider how students learn rather than just bullet listing facts. I use color coded text so students can focus on one point at a time. Everything is as visual as possible and presented in a step by step process. Most importantly, the activities and discussions that emerge from the slideshows are incredibly meaningful. Detailed unit notes with visuals follow each PowerPoint slideshow for students who require assistance and support staff. A bundled homework package and modified version also follows the slideshows for nightly review. I have 50,000 + slides over 20 full units of study that have been constantly improved every year. These units are the products of 10 years of trial in an incredibly busy and challenging classroom environment. I wouldn't post a unit that hasn't worked wonders for me and my students. Please contact me if you would like to sample some of my work. I will gladly send you a unit or more to view and use in your classroom. Thanks for your interest.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have been working nights for the last ten years creating this electronic curriculum. I have tried to make these units (I have 20 posted Units on TpT) - especially the PowerPoint presentations as interactive and engaging as possible. Everything in a unit unfolds chronologically following the PowerPoint roadmap. The bundled homework package, unit notes, videos, and more all follow the unit. Everything is organized and ready to go for a whole unit of instruction. I have been using them for years with my students and all of the feedback from the students, parents, and my administrators has been extremely positive. Test scores, as well as my students high school performance has been exceptional. My students encouraged me to make these lessons available to the public. Thanks for your interest.
