Source overlays

These are something I have been using this week, which started with the fabulous question matrix by @JOHNSAYERS.As a history teacherĀ I spend a lot of time using my Ipad as a visualizer for sources in textbooks or searching the internet; so that we could discuss, annotate and question the content. I created A4 sheets which we have used to annotate sources and then compare propaganda posters. I also have smaller ones that students can use over textbooks.

I have plans for different versions and I am looking forward to seeing how many uses I can find for them. I am going to use them with post it notes, by having a range of sources which students have to annotate and then mix them up to match the source and overlay.

Yes they are a bit fiddly to stick and cut out to make them double sided and yes because it is just normal laminating they are a bit wobbly. However I think that they will really help my students develop their questioning skills and better still I am sure they will be useful in other subjects. A technology colleague left my room yesterday planning how to adapt a version for product design.

If you manage to use or adapt them let me know and we can share the different versions and uses on pedagoo.org.

Happy making.
