I’ve been thinking about using One-Pagers in my science classes lately. This article is basically a journal entry that captures some useful resources I've found. At the end of this post, you'll find an example of a Heat and Temperature along with a one-pager template that I use in some of my classes.
If you enjoy this resource use the button below to receive email updates when I share more in the future.
Students can use one-pagers to share their most important takeaways from what they’ve been learning. One-pagers can be used to summarize key concepts in all areas of the curriculum.
This strategy was first introduced by AVID and has taken off from there. One-pagers offer an opportunity for students to creatively express what they understand about a variety of topics.
Students spend a good amount of their school day on their chrome books. I’m hopeful that using one-pagers will give them a break from screens while solidifying what they’ve been learning.
I hope you find these One-Pager resources useful.
