Classroom Considerations
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
  • Illustrations visually engage the viewer
  • Dig Deeper section provides many rich resources
  • A lot of ideas are shared in the video, but the speaker moves through them quickly; consider listening ahead of time and composing a document that records the ideas shared so the class does not have to frantically scribble notes while watching
  • The Think questions are mostly recall, so adding in other questions could lead to a much richer conversation
