Instructional Sequence:

It is important to point out that the following instructional sequence is dependent upon the use of
Pear Deck. Pear Deck is an interactive website that helps teachers understand student progress.
Through Pear Deck teachers create a presentation, post questions, and exercises that students are
able to answer while the teacher monitors both individual and class progress. Such design and
allows for teachers to regularly check for student understanding and progress. When question
slides display on the screen, students can answer the question individually on their devices,
before the teacher reveals the answers. Therefore, you will find various check-ins on the first
instructional sequence.
However, if the Internet is not working or if not all students have their computers with them, I
have designed an additional instructional sequence, labeled as: Alternative Instructional
Sequence.
