How to start every class. To begin a class I want my kids thinking science and what better way than to show a quick science (connected to the content or students lives in general) video, usually 3-4 minutes long which leads to a class discussion. These videos create a minds-on mentality, generate discussion and allow me to take control of my class from the start because once the video begins, the students understand it’s time to focus.
I’m going to dedicate a series of posts to these videos. I’ll like to the video and write a short description of how I use it. Please check back regularly.
