How I Use It
I use this to sometimes introduce a topic especially people when we study biographies. The students usually watch the short video and take a quiz whole group. They beg to do the hard quiz first. It's amazing how absorbed they become and how much they learn in these mini lessons. Sometimes I use this in small groups
My Take
This works best with most of the features after the class has already been studying a topic. I feel like it works as just another tool in the overall learning experience, rather than doing written worksheet. Most all of the students can answer the questions. sometimes I reread them aloud for the lower level students.
