Your Target
At the end of this activity, you will gain competence in preparing
instructional materials (hand-outs) that are appropriate to the learning
content.

Your Map
With a lot of reflective thinking coupled with your creativity, you
can design hand-outs that will truly work well to make learning
effective. You will see that preparing hand-outs is not just any paper
work. When you produce high quality hand-outs and eventually try
them out, you will discover that, indeed, paper works! To reach your
target, follow these steps below:
Step 3: Present it to your FS
Teacher before producing it.
Step 2: Describe your handouts.

Step 1: Prepare hand-outs for a selected
topic ( i.e. flow charts, schema, graphic
organizers)

Your Tools
As you prepare your hand-outs use the activity form below.

Your Analysis
After working with your handout, answer the following questions:
What are the good features of a handout?
A good handout must be concise and can be understood by the
readers. It must contain the important information that the students must
know about the topic or the lesson. To shorten it, the use of bullets may
contribute as well as the use of diagrams, flowcharts, etc. The content must
be sequenced properly to avoid confusion.
Which of these features are present in the handout I made?
The handout I made was concise and comprehensive. I contained
the information in which I want my students to know. I sequenced the
details properly, in order, just like this:
1. Example


Rules...Etc.

I used bullets and flowcharts to summarize the process.
Which features are not present in the handout 1 made?
None, all the features that I know that a handout must have are
present in my handout.

Your Reflections
1. What difficulties, if any, did you encounter in making the
handouts? How did you overcome them?
To make a handout is not very difficult. The only thing that took
time and needed a brainstorming when I made my handout is the
conceptualization of the flow of the handout and the diagrams and
concept map that I included.
2. What tips can you give teachers regarding preparation of
handouts?
The teacher must identify first her objectives and the purpose
in
making the handout. Then he/she must conceptualize the flow and
content of the handout by making an outline. The teacher must also

read several references so that the handout will be an informative tool

for the students learning.
