Cardinal Innovation Center Booksnaps Gallery Rewind: The Cold War

Booksnaps are one of my favorite way to have students mark the text, close read and identify textual evidence. On this page in the Cardinal Innovation Center Booksnaps Gallery, 10th grade World History students identified textual evidence of a variety of themes and concepts during the Cold War. The text that was used came from our World History textbook. Click here to view the booksnaps.

After reading Of Mice and Men, Orosi High School 9th graders created memes to highlight some of the parts of the story they thought were most memorable. Using Google Slides and Google Classroom, the teacher was able to distribute a template and easily collect student-generated memes. Click here to see some student exemplar memes.

Cardinal Innovation Center YouTube Gallery Rewind: AP Calculus Student Lessons

There is a saying that states if you can teach something to someone else, then you've learned it. Each year, Mrs. Ang at Orosi High School puts this idea into practice. Her AP Calculus students are required to record themselves teaching a key concept learned throughout the year in class. Click here to view some of her students' lessons from years past.

The Cardinal Innovation Center YouTube Gallery is designed to showcase student-created lessons, projects, how-to videos and more. Check here periodically to see the latest student-created videos from Orosi High School, Lovell High School and El Monte Middle School.

Introducing the Cardinal Innovation Center Memes Gallery

The Cardinal Innovation Center Memes Gallery is a curated collection of student-generated Memes across all subject areas and grade levels. It is designed to be a growing resource for students to refer to when reviewing learning as well as previewing new learning. 

This Gallery has been growing slowly over the past few years. Though not as "full" as the Cardinal Innovation Center Sketchnotes Gallery, it does have some clever student-generated insights. At this point, History/Social Studies classes have submitted the most memes while ELA is starting to grow a little bit. This coming school year, I look forward to filling this gallery with numerous memes across all content areas and 6-12 grade levels. 

Click here to browse the Cardinal Innovation Center Memes GalleryIf interesting in submitting your own memes, please use Google Slides to create and share with Be sure to include the subject, topic and grade level.
