Reflection: Flexibility 'Prezi'nt Images About Social Studies - Section 2: Materials


When I originally planned this lesson, I thought I would stress to the kids how organizing your images helps you to remember better. I designed a powerpoint called U.S. Government questions that intended to give before and after the Prezi.

As I was teaching, I realized that the real crux of the lesson was organizing ideas from the text and adding the pretest/posttest was just too much so we only used at the end to reflect on what we had learned.

Here's what I envisioned about using a pretest/posttest, if it's something that you want to use.

(During the Teacher's Turn) "I'm so convinced that this strategy is helpful, that I made a 'test' to see what you remember without the strategy and with the strategy. Here's the test - see if you can answer the questions."  I give the kids the questions and see what they remember. (Make this simple - discussion only.  This is only a quick comment on how organization helps us remember, not an evaluation of their knowledge.)

(After the Students' Turn)   "Now let's try those questions again."  Put the powerpoint back up. See if the kids can answer the questions better.  "Let's pull the prezi up on your iPad and my prezis up.  Do they help you answer questions?"
