How do you tell the difference between a pentagon and a hexagon?
How do you know if a pentagon is regular or irregular? LearnZillion Notes: --This is your hook. Start with a question to draw the student in. We want that student saying, “huh, how do you do X?” Try to be specific. For example, the hook could be “How do you know if 2/3 is greater than 5/8?” rather than something more generic such as “How do you compare fractions?” --You can fill in an example using the blue text or you can delete that text box and include some other image that explains what you’re talking about.

LearnZillion Notes: --This is our lesson objective. Keep it as short and student-friendly as possible. Put what they will learn in green and then how they’ll learn it in blue. For example, “In this lesson you will learn how to compare fractions with different denominators by using a number line.”

--Some lessons may build off of previous lessons. In those cases, it may be helpful to include one or more review slides. Use these slides to remind students of previous concepts you’ve taught in other lessons. --Feel free to move or resize the blue text box to fit your content. --Remember that you can add multiple “Let’s Review” slides if you need them or you can just delete this slide!

LearnZillion Notes: --The Core Lesson may take more than one slide. You can add as many of these slides as you like. Simply click on “New Slide” and then select the Core Lesson template slide to add a new one. --Feel free to move or resize the blue text box to fit your content.

LearnZillion Notes: --We’ve included a second “Core Lesson” slide for you. If you don’t need this, just delete it, and if you need more you can copy and paste the entire slide or add a blank “Core Lesson” template slide by clicking on arrow below “New Slide” menu.

5 – Pent (The Pentagon) 8 – Oct (octopus) LearnZillion Notes:
--For some lessons it may be best to include a slide or two about “A Common Mistake.” These slides show students what mistakes to avoid so that they can follow the Core Lessons more easily. --Feel free to move or resize the blue text box to fit your content. --Remember that you can add multiple “A Common Mistake” slides if you need them or you can just delete this slide!

LearnZillion Notes: --Here’s a third “Core Lesson” slide for you. If you don’t need this, just delete it, and if you need more you can copy and paste the entire slide or add a blank “Core Lesson” template slide by clicking on arrow below “New Slide” menu.

Tell which of these shapes is a pentagon and which is a hexagon.
Determine whether the shape is regular or irregular. Hexagon, Regular Pentagon, Regular LearnZillion Notes: --Here’s a third “Core Lesson” slide for you. If you don’t need this, just delete it, and if you need more you can copy and paste the entire slide or add a blank “Core Lesson” template slide by clicking on arrow below “New Slide” menu.

LearnZillion Notes: --This is the lesson conclusion. On this slide you’ll change your original lesson objective to past tense and explain what the student has just learned. You can retype it here or you can delete the text on this slide and then just copy and paste the text box from the original Lesson Objective slide and then edit it to make it past tense!

LearnZillion Notes: --The “Guided Practice” should include 1 practice problem that targets the skill that was used in the Core Lesson. Use the same vocabulary and process you used in the original lesson to solve this problem. You’ll be making a video in which you solve this question using your tablet and pen, so all you need to do is write the question on this slide.

LearnZillion Notes: --On the Extension Activities slide(s) you should describe 2-3 activities written with students as the audience (not teachers). Each extension activity should push the students a bit further with the lesson but in a different application or context. Each activity should be designed to take roughly minutes. Teachers will likely display the slide in class and then assign an activity to a student or group for additional practice and differentiation. Ideally, these Extension Activities will be created such that a teacher can differentiate instruction by giving more difficult extension activities to students who have shown mastery of the lesson, and less difficult activities to students who are not yet proficient. --If you need more than one slide to list your extension activities, feel free to copy and paste this slide!

Describe a shape in writing. See if a friend can guess your shape based on the description. Example: I am a polygon with 5 sides and angles. All of my sides are 3 inches long. What am I? Answer: regular pentagon LearnZillion Notes: --On the Extension Activities slide(s) you should describe 2-3 activities written with students as the audience (not teachers).

LearnZillion Notes: --”Quick Quiz” is an easy way to check for student understanding at the end of a lesson. On this slide, you’ll simply display 2 problems that are similar to the previous examples. That’s it! You won’t be recording a video of this slide and when teachers download the slides, they’ll direct their students through the example on their own so you don’t need to show an answer to the question.

Storyline or Arc of the Lesson
Criteria for Success Things to avoid Storyline or Arc of the Lesson There is a clear arc to the lesson. One slide leads naturally to the next so that there is a flow and a building of meaning All the components of the lesson are there but they seem disconnected, as if the author wrote each without thinking about how they fit into the whole. Hook Slide The teacher poses a simple question that illicits the response, “yeah, I do wonder how that works…” The question is short A relevant example is included when it is short and further pulls the learner in The question mirrors what the student will learn, then need to do later in the guided practice The question seems formulaic, inauthentic, or overly “school-ish” (message: you have to learn this because you’re in school rather than, this is genuinely interesting) The hook is overly-complicated and potentially confusing The question does not parallel the guided practice questions Objective Slide The objective follows the form (you will learn X by doing Y) Is concise and follows the form provided in the examples Does not follow the form Is overly vague in describing either the X or the Y Is too long Is written for teachers but not students Let’s Review Reminds the student of how this lesson fits with other lessons (the lesson, however, should still be able to stand on its own) Reminds the student of important vocabulary Is as concise as possible Uses visuals whenever possible Is either too detailed or not detailed enough in connecting the lesson to other lessons Leaves out important touch points Makes the lesson overly dependent on the other lessons (student will be confused or feel like they’ve made a mistake, if they watch this lesson alone)

Modeling a Way of Looking at It
Common Mistake Points out a common mistake that students make Concisely explains the thought process that leads to that mistake Isn’t actually a mistake students make (too simple) Is confusing or vague Modeling a Way of Looking at It Clearly models a way to look at the standard Uses visuals as often as possible to show how the way of looking works Is in “think aloud” format. The teacher is opening up his/her thought process to the student Takes advantage of every opportunity to explain why the math works the way it works Engages the learner by asking questions along the way to build suspense Uses an an example to show the way in action Explains how this way of looking at it shows why the common mistake (see above) is a mistake Focuses on the algorhythm (or trick) instead of on showing a way of looking at the math Fails to use visuals to show a way Fails to explain his/her thinking along the way. The teacher effortlessly runs through the steps as if it’s all obvious and easy Does not ask any questions along the way to pull the learner in Misses opportunities to explain the why behind the math Fails to explain why this way of looking at the math addresses the common mistake Objective Review Reviews the objective in a way which conveys, “we’ve come full cicle and now you see this objective with new eyes.” Serves as a “let’s pull this all together” moment that helps organize the lesson in the learner’s mind Creates abrupt feeling between the lesson and the reviewing (subtext: “we’re done with this lesson, let’s quickly bring it to a close.”) Guided Practice Is at the same difficulty level modeled in the lesson Is connected to the initial hook question Seem unrelated to the hook question Is at a different difficulty level than that modeled in the lesson

Extension Activity Suggestions
Includes a suggestion for a struggling student who needs more opportunities for practice Includes a suggestion for students who seem to get it but need more practice Includes a suggestion for students who get it and are ready to be challenged further Suggestions should clearly build from the approach in the core lesson Does not include differentiation Does not thoughtfully connect or flow from the lesson Does not clearly build from the approach in the core lesson Does not give a range of activities Aesthetics The slides use the correct colors (blue, green, red) in the correct sequence. The slides use the correct fonts The slides use handwriting and the handwriting appears as written in the right places The slides only use the headers/titles provided The slides use the provided visuals or include visuals created by the author or LearnZillion The slides use animation, highlighting, and circling to scaffold the learning, keeping the eye focused on what the teacher is introducing/explaining The slides clean and uncluttered. The visuals and text do not exceed the maximum amount (see tutorial for example of maximum) The slides use other colors or vary the order of the colors The slides add new headers/titles that aren’t part of the template The slides use clip art The slides are cluttered Animation is distracting and feels more like sizzle than part of the steak

Graphic and Image Templates
Copy and Paste items from these slides to make your presentation look great! LearnZillion Notes: --You can delete this page and everything below it once you’re finished with your presentation!

LearnZillion Notes: --The first time text appears, it should always appear letter by letter using animation. If the same text appears later (perhaps in a review section), the text should simply fade in. --Use green text for headlines and main ideas, blue for examples and detail, and red for even more intricate details or examples. --Always use black text on the “yellow sticky note” images. --Never use a font size smaller than 28

LearnZillion Notes: --The bubbles and text are separate pieces (not “grouped”). That means that you’ll want to select both of them before you can move, copy or paste the set. You can select both of them and resize them together or you can select just the text box or just the bubble and adjust either one. --If you select just the bubble, you can grab the yellow square to manipulate or elongate the tail. --Use letter-by-letter animation the first time you show a given text bubble, but if the same bubble appears later, use “fade” animation.

LearnZillion Notes: --The sticky notes and text are separate pieces (not “grouped”). That means that you’ll want to select both of them before you can move, copy or paste the set. You can select both of them and resize them together or you can select just the text box or just the sticky note and adjust either one. --Use letter-by-letter animation the first time you show a given sticky note, but if the same note appears later, use “fade” animation for the text.

Common Issues: --To rotate an arrow, select it and then drag the green dot to rotate however you like. --To change the color of an arrow, select the arrow, then on the “Home” tab select “Shape Fill”

LearnZillion Notes: --You can delete any of these that you don’t need.

LearnZillion Notes: --You can resize these boxes and use them to highlight text in a passage or an important piece of an equation etc. You can also use a pen or other drawing tool though.

Let’s Review A Common Mistake Let’s Review Guided Practice
