Get The Most Out Of Student Penda Usage - Use A Student Note-Taking Guide

Encourage students to take notes while completing a Penda activity screen-by-screen. This process will help students digest information more thoroughly while identifying both known and unknown vocabulary, main ideas, supporting details, and key concepts. Students can then use their notes when attempting the activity over again to try and achieve a higher score. Writing within the content area also supports ELA standards and is proven to positively impact retention of information.
