This combo contains a two page EDITABLE VIDEO QUESTION WORKSHEET, a one page EDITABLE VIDEO QUIZ and ANSWER KEYS for both. The Video Questions Worksheet is effective at keeping the students listening, engaged and taking good notes during the video. The Video Quiz provides a quick and easy assessment (7-12 min) after the video. It is also an extra incentive to pay attention and take good notes. When used together both these resources transform a simple movie day into a greater educational opportunity for your students. This combo has worked like a charm in my own classroom.
NOTE - This product has been written for the BBC Life series narrated by Oprah Winfrey. The same series narrated by David Attenborough has a slightly different script.
Not all video worksheets are made equal! Too many poorly designed video worksheets contain questions that do not give students enough time to record their answers before the next question comes, or they have the opposite problem of having long stretches of time in between questions where students become disengaged. I have designed my questions so that they occur at a reasonable pace to keep the students constantly engaged but not scrambling to record information. To that end I use a lot of fill in the blank questions to help students record data quickly and intersperse that with very brief short answer questions for more thinking. Since the worksheet is editable, you can reword, add or remove questions to make it more appropriate for your classes.
The 20 Mark (1 page) VIDEO QUIZ comes with an easy to mark ANSWER KEY. The quiz is not meant to be overly challenging. It is meant to simply assess how much students have listened, understood and retained. It is a snap to mark because the questions all come in the form of matching questions and either fill in the blanks or true or false. The quiz can be given out after showing the video or on the following day. This is a great incentive for students to pay attention during the video. For students who need more support, you can make the quiz "open book" by allowing them to refer to their video worksheet during the quiz. You can choose to mark the quiz or not for an evaluation.
