Today I thought I would share a couple lessons where I feel like adding the color really helped.
Red - They always need to ask the question
Yellow - If they answer yes they need to proceed with caution and follow the steps in the foldable
Green - Good to go on to the next step!
Second, I really liked how my pages on writing inequalities and solving from word problems went. Here's what it looked like:
I had the students choose four different colors to write with. Then we used each color to represent an inequality and take notes. In the middle of the foldable there were simple inequalities that they underlined the important phrase in the corresponding color (i.e. for my foldable, I would underline "is under" in blue and then right the corresponding inequality making sure I used a "less than" symbol)
I thought this went really well. Then the students worked on a worksheet where they used the same color-coding to identify what symbol to use.
What have you done recently to incorporate more interactive notes like highlighting, color, or underlining?
