Podcast #134 - How I Use Note Packets in My 8th Grade American History Class

Hello. I've been trying to keep up with my e-mail from listeners and people who check out my classroom web page but I've been getting behind as of late. Today I thought I would try to answer one of my most frequently asked questions - How do you use your note packets in class with your students? I have been using something that I call "note packets" as one method of delivering my content to my students. These packets, and the notes we use with them, are available for download and I receive e-mail often from teachers using them in their own classroom. In this podcast I try to answer the most frequently asked questions about the note packets.


  1. First of all, as a first year 8th grade American History teacher I have found your website to be extremely helpful. Thank you for sharing. I am having trouble seeing your packets ~ are they still available?

  2. Hi, I just began teaching 7th grade American History and your units of study were a great guide. Unfortunately, they are no longer available on-line. Can you help me and direct me to where they are? Thank you. Sincerely, Damariz Hacker.

    I teach 8th grade American History. I, too, have been inspired by your website and have been broadening my horizons. I would love to be able to download the Note Packets and Lecture Notes in PowerPoint format. The link does not work. Are they still available?
    Thank you!!!!
