Welcome back for the second installation of our How-To Series for teachers we're currently in the middle of. I'm excited you're back, but if you didn't catch part one yet, I encourage you to check out how to make student guided notes.
In today's How-To, we'll focus on a digital resource. It's one that can be done on paper, with scissors and glue, but assigning it digitally furthers the benefits I sought out after when creating these types of resources.

So, what do we have here in Unit 7 - well it's a big one. Much like Cognitive Psychology, you'll want to be sure and keep this one nice and compartmentalized for students, helping them know where they are in their studies at all times.
I hope you find these resources helpful so you can spend time connecting with your students rather than on the wheel of content creation.
Let's start with the slides. There are 12 sets of powerpoint slides in 12 big topics covered throughout the unit. I like this unit in a flipped classroom, as I do all units, but I have to say the discussion that comes from these topics in class is pretty...
