Anticipation guides can be used in may lights. Anytime I show a full length video I accompany it with an anticipation guide. They take time to make though, so I hope someone finds this usefull!
How these guides work:
These guides engage students before, during, and after video lessons; as they read facts that will be presented in the video before watching it, and decide if they think the facts are true or false.
During the video, as the students come across these facts they then record if it's true or false. If the fact is false, the student must make a correction to make the statement correct.
After the video, the students must complete the analysis questions. These are higher order thinking questions that ask the students to use information from the video that they just saw to complete the question. Students are also prompted to number their use of evidence, which makes it easier for your the teacher (or cooperative peer grading) to assess.
This comes with a key! (yay!) The video, 44 minutes long, can be accessed on YouTube by searching "Nat Geo Wild Desert Seas".
My Brief Synopsis of the Video:
David Attenborough narrates the very different ecosystems of the Red Sea and the Gulf, two oasis' on opposite sides of a desert peninsula of Saudi Arabia. The students learn why the Red Sea is a blossoming coral reef oasis, and the Gulf is a quite sandy ecosystem seemly void of the biodiversity found in the Red Sea. That myth is debunked as students learn the two ecosystems are teeming with life, but driven by two different energy sources: in Red Sea - the sun, and in the Gulf - desert sand storms. The video goes over how plate tectonic movements created the Red Sea, as well as many symbiotic relationships between the life of the two oceanic ecosystems separated by the sandy deserts. So many ways to tie this into your lessons.
