Guided Graphic Notes
Guided graphic notes are a way to scaffold notes by providing interactive notes. By using graphic displays, students are able to conceptualize historical concepts without copying every word from the powerpoint. Please try the product below, and if you like it, check out my store for other options. Right now, I have the Age of Exploration, Age of Revolutions, and World War I Guided Graphic notes available for sale in my store. Click the TPT logo to view these resources.
These worksheets are intended to be used in class or as homework informational texts. The lexile level tends to range in 1050-1300 for these worksheets, so keep that in mind when using them (whether students can independently understand and master the material). I have developed over 100 different thematic worksheets that range from 1400-modern World History and cover all of American history.
Break In to History
These are easily the most popular activities that I create. Each Break In presents students with vocabulary based challenge clues and then gives a follow-up challenge question that usually focuses on DBQ Style Questions. Break Ins aren't only fun, they also reinforce key learning objectives by giving students new anchors for vocabulary concepts that require creative thought and a variety of document-based questions.
