Easy Google Slides T-Chart

Sometime we take simple tasks for granted. I was kind of surprised when asked how to create a T-Chart in a Google Slide. This is a very easy task when one uses a table to create the chart. Using a table makes the T-Chart very user friendly. All the student or teacher has to do is click within the chart to start typing. How much easier can it get?

Use a Google Presentation for a Narrative Writing Graphic Organizer

Click Here to COPY TEMPLATE

Google Presentation Slides are perfect for creating graphic organizers for writing. The slides help isolate step by step directions for students to follow. This makes it easier for the student to maintain focus for each individual step. Google Presentations help the student to maintain organization of their ideas before writing their final copy. The teacher can link out to a Google Doc for the students to copy to their Google Drive on the last slide to the graphic organizer. This will save the student a few steps and time with getting started typing their final narrative writing. Imagine “NO” time is wasted by the student when creating a Google Document.

Support Writing with a Differentiated Interactive Graphic Organizers

What I like most about integrating technology into the classroom is its ability to differentiate learning. Imagine a class where everyone can participate without an adult hovering over them all the time. When one integrates technology in an innovative manner it is possible to focus more on the needs of both the struggling and accelerated students. Less time is wasted on physically reteaching a lesson to the whole class. This post will focus on creating a Google Drawings Graphic Organizer which differentiates the writing process.
