Shorts can be used in many different ways! They can be used to introduce a new skill or practice a skill that has already been taught. They can be done whole group, in small groups, or independently. I typically have students watch the movie all the way through the first time. I then have students watch the video again, working on completing the task at hand as they work. The second watch through involves lots of pausing, discussions, and writing.
There are two different ways you can use these graphic organizers. You can simply print and go, or you can edit in some of the information on the editable slides before printing. Sometimes I give my students completely blank graphic organizers. Other times, I will enter some of the information onto the page and just have students fill in the blank spaces. You can do whatever works for your students.
