1FROM DINAH ZIKEDear Teacher,What is a Foldable?A Foldable is a 3-D, student-made, interactive graphic organizer based upon a skill. Makinga Foldable gives students a fast, kinesthetic activity that helps them organize and retain infor-mation. Every chapter in the student edition of the textbook begins with a Foldable that is usedas a Study Organizer. Each chapter’s Foldable is designed to be used as a study guide for themain ideas and key points presented in sections of the chapter. Foldables can also be used for amore in-depth investigation of a concept, idea, opinion, event, or a person or place studied in achapter. The purpose of this ancillary is to show you how to create various types of Foldablesand provide chapter-specific Foldables examples. With this information, you can individualizeFoldables to meet your curriculum needs.This book is divided into two sections. The first section presents step-by-step instructions,illustrations, and photographs of 34 Foldables, many of which were not used in the studentedition. I’ve included over 100 photographs to help you visualize ways in which they mightenhance instruction. The second section presents two extra ideas on how to use Foldables foreach chapter in the textbook. You can use the instruction section to design your own Foldablesor alter the Foldables presented in each chapter as well. I highly suggest making this bookavailable as a source for students who wish to learn new and creative ways in which to makestudy guides, present projects, or do extra credit work.Who Am I?You may have seen Foldables featured in this book used in supplemental programs or staff-development workshops. Today my Foldables are used internationally. I present workshops andkeynotes to over fifty thousand teachers and parents a year, sharing Foldables that I beganinventing, designing, and adapting over thirty five years ago. Students of all ages are usingthem for daily work, note-taking activities, student-directed projects, forms of alternativeassessment, journals, graphs, tables, and more.Have fun using and adapting Foldables,
