This is the first in a series of worksheets designed to help students take notes from educational videos. I like to invite students to choose which worksheet they will use for a given video to allow self-differentiation according to various learning styles. Each sheet requires different types of responses to encourage students to think about the material in more than one way. These work for STEM, language arts, social studies, history, and cross-curricular videos.
Worksheet 1 asks students to summarize the video, draw and label a picture, and write what they found most interesting. I recommend specifying that students write a complete sentence for this question, and saying that "nothing" and "I don't know" are not acceptable answers.
