If you are getting ready for back to school and in search of lesson ideas that will transition your students back to “learn” mode and also facilitate an atmosphere for hands-on activities, I have created four free lessons any teacher can use. Lesson A (http://bit.ly/oQdsVf) Getting Started and Getting to Know Each Other. Lesson B (http://bit.ly/nLpyh6) The Interactive Student Notebook (ISN). Lesson C (http://bit.ly/ouod1P) Learning Styles and Working with Others. Lesson D (http://bit.ly/pjJykW) Automating Classroom Procedures to Save Instructional Time. These lessons were created for our blog site (http://blog.teachtci.com) where we post monthly free lessons.
