Our first big history test is coming up next week. I always encourage students to start studying before they know a test is coming up. One great tool I like to use is Quizlet. I was able to remix other teachers' vocabulary word creations to create the notecards you see below. Click on the drop down menu to "Choose a Study Mode." Find the way that you would learn these words the best! What works for you, works for me.
For the last week or so, we have been using the Step Up to Writing program to help us organize our writing better. What I like best about this style of writing, is that it is very accessible to all students, and draws a comparison between writing and a traffic signal. If you would like to see a basic idea of what this looks like in the classroom OR you are a student that needs a review, check out this video.
