Are you teaching about the World War II? How about the Holocaust? Let me help you with some flipped/blended content to kick off your unit and help your students build valuable prerequisite background information. The introduction consists of three general parts: Square Deal, Video Content, and Quizlet vocabulary terms.
Square Deal - This activity gives your students 12 choices to demonstrate their learning about the topic(s). They can write, draw, list, compose, or even create their own customized way to show what they know. It serves as a great tool to differentiate your instruction in order to give all types of learners opportunities to be successful.
Video Content & educanon questions - The video content is the heart and soul of the Introduction Activity. This introduction contains 3 video clips that range from 10 to 15 minutes. As your students watch the video content, they can answer questions that appear as the video pauses. The software that makes this possible is called eduCanon and if you create an account their results will appear on your dashboard. Once submitted, you will have record of who is watching your content. Please note that you will have to create a free account using eduCanon but after you learn how to use their product video questions will be ready for you.
Quizlet - Your students can practice key vocabulary terms and phrases using the free Quizlet software. Quizlet can generate anything from a traditional quiz to cool games that will engage your students.
Optional Resources - This introduction contains two extra resources, an interactive map and an online game.
As a special bonus, if you purchase this activity, I can also send you an editable link so you can edit and revise this activity to meet your specific needs. You can also contact me for support or collaboration.
