Instructional Ideas
  • Create guided notes for pupils that align with the presentation so they may have a study guide for assessments
  • Have learners create their own MadLibs-type paragraph by writing about a topic, removing all of the nouns from their writing, and substituting the nouns with blanks; use it as a learning check for the material
Classroom Considerations
  • Seating arrangements should be structured for direct instruction
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
  • Formative assessment with answers is embedded in presentation
  • Presentation begins with an attention-getting question—engaging from the start
  • Resource references MySpace, an out-of-date technology that some scholars may not recognize
