Happy Thursday, Everyone! We are less than a week away from the start of school here in my District, so I have been working hard to organize and prep for the new year. And while I plan to eventually share my entire U.S. History course with you via my Resources page, not everything I'm putting together really fits with my unit plans and class activities. For example, I've been working to create this collection of Pear Deck template slides that you can adapt and use as you build your own lessons. It starts with a few basic image and text slides, and then continues to include a number of different activity slides you can use to help students master vocabulary, interpret map, analyze source material, compare viewpoints, etc.
As always, feel free to make a copy and use whatever you find helpful. Also, be sure to check back from time to time as I'm certain I will add more templates as the year continues.
And let me know what you think.
Because I wanted to avoid grading 'papers' for as long as possible today...and I already had the template made anyway, I updated my museum room to highlight Women's History Month. As always, this is just a starting point for discussions. I had to leave out as many things as I included.
Take a look and let me know what you think.
In spite of my best efforts, all of these weather-related changes to our schedule means that I've ended up with some students who have fallen behind and others who are in need of enrichment. For those that fall into the second group, I put together this Black History Month Museum Slide. I tried to capture main ideas and key people I want my students to know about by the end of the year, but this is only a starting point for our discussions. There are loads of additional topics we will analyze throughout the year. And as always, free to make a copy and adapt it for your own needs.
Let me know what you think.
My name is Angela Zorn. I work full-time as an educator at Bullitt Central High School in suburban Kentucky where I teach US History. In addition, I provide training & consulting services throughout the United States.
I love sharing my lesson creations with other teachers on Facebook, Twitter, and my website. It brings me so much joy pass on all that I have learned from others over the years.
If you are feeling generous and would like to buy me a coffee, that will keep me energized to continue creating and sharing.
