We recently completed our Ancient Greece unit, and I wanted to provide students with the key details we covered in class as well as extra online resources for them to check out. Students worked on these study guides in class with a partner and had full access to them the week of the final assessment.
Looking for the "how to" behind creating these guides? I used the same process that we use for our interactive notebooks. Check out that step-by-step guide here.
Why use Book Creator? Simply put, Book Creator provides both teacher and student with a variety of tools to personalize learning while using a user-friendly format that even the littlest of learners can tackle. Hands-down, this is our favorite paid app loaded on our student devices. We find new uses every week!
Here are a few samples pages (screenshots) from our Ancient Greece study guides. Note that I was able to mix media by adding video, images, text, links, and more. You can even link out to digital flashcards or games that you may have created using resources such as Quizlet or Socrative.
|The Cover Page is clear and easy for students to distinguish from other books. |
Add a personal message that gives the students a purpose using video.
|Interactive features give students a more authentic learning experience.|
|Students can add in their own text or photos that enhance their learning. |
This student added a photo that named the 12 gods of Mt. Olympus,
and they used the notes section to roughly answer the "Think About It" section.
