• An Introductory Pre-Knowledge activity, a show-what-you know “Characterization Run-Around” activity, with KEY, of course! Get those students moving, then do a great whole group review.
• And not one, BUT THREE ASSESSMENTS, in order of ascending difficulty. TWO of these are SCANTRON FRIENDLY, the last of which is short answer.
• Answer Keys, and CUMULATIVE ANSWER Keys (make them into quizzes, or one large assessment if YOU prefer).
