Simulations. 6 Alternatives To Bullet Lists. Sharebar Bullets make lists of important points easy to read. When those near-perfect little circles are vertically aligned, readers can quickly process the text. Yet too many bullet lists in an eLearning course or slide presentation can be repetitious and mind-numbing. Learners and audiences need novelty to maintain and sustain attention. The trick for going beyond bullets is to think visually. By sprinkling in alternatives to bullets here and there, your minimal use of bullets will be more effective. Here are six bullet alternatives you can create in any graphics program or in PowerPoint.

Alternative 2: Let icons do the talking Using the same text boxes as above, this approach adds icons to the words. These icons were found at Iconfinder. You can take this approach one step further by accentuating the graphic more than the words. IEP Goal Bank. This IEP GOAL BANK is the place where you can "deposit" your own IEP goals/objectives and "withdraw" the goals/objectives contributed by others. Few things cause more angst in our profession than writing IEP goals/objectives! One way to simplify the process is to use the template below. If all sections of this template are filled in, then your goal/objective is measurable. IEP Goal/Objective Template: From a baseline of ___, the student will.... perform a specific skill a specified number of times under specified conditions at a specified level of achievement for a specific length of time.

For example: From a baseline of 55% at the single word level, Joey will... correctly produce an /s/ in the initial position of 25 words from his classroom curriculum after highlighting those sounds as a visual reminder in 8 of 10 trials (80% accuracy) for three consecutive therapy sessions. IMPORTANT NOTE: You will likely NOT be able to use these goals/objectives "as is. " 3. 4. Fluency Goals: I. II. My Top Ed Tech Tools.
