Advice
1) Classroom teachers will need a computer that runs Powerpoint .ppt and an LCDProjector. I have taped white poster boards onto a wall in my classroom to create alarge wall size viewing screen. The bigger, the better.2) The second piece of advice when purchasing this product is that you will need awireless Powerpoint presenter remote control. These are not very expensive andallow you travel freely around the room visiting students and directing attention asthe lesson progresses. It is nice not having to turn your back to the students toconstantly change the slides. Some the unit slideshows have over 2000 slides. Thatis a lot of trips back and forth to the computer.3) Allow students to work together in small lab table groups. These table groups cananswer black slide questions and report to the class, they can work together onJeopardy games, and perform lab activities together. The unit assessments which Igive a better name called OFE’s (Opportunities for Excellence) are difficult, andwhen everyone in a table group is working together, most students do very well.There is a trickle down effect where the top students may understand all parts to ananswer. They then describe this to their peers who then pass it down. Eventually allstudents understand the answers and what was expected. It is important to teach thekids the differences between direct copying and teaching.4) Grade Science Journals often. These units have cut out most of the constant photocopying for lab directions and questions and have students write in a science journal. Keep the journals accountable and grade them often. If done well, these journals are better than a textbook because they were created by the student. Ascience journal grading rubric is provided.5) Review games are a great review. I have the students work in table groups andare allowed to access their journal. They are allowed to communicate with their table group as long nobody else can hear them. I make each question worth 5 points, the last category is all bonus and worth 1pt. Students can then wager up to5pts for Final Jeopardy. It is nice having the Jeopardy review games ready to go.6) Set high expectations for the unit assessments that I call OFE’s (OpportunitiesFor Excellence). The students have access to class notes through their science
