Video is a valuable and integral resource in my classroom. Students are viewing video on an increasingly frequent basis during their daily lives. It is important that we teach students how to read, question,understand and interpret video just as we do text. Students love when I bring my own personal photos and video to the classroom. It allows me another opportunity to bring the world to my classroom. Below outlines how I use a once in a lifetime video (that I captured) with my students. Use it with yours!
Using Video to teach Questioning and Inferencing
I use this resource (Using Video in the Classroom), also found on Smart Teacher Exchange, to guide my students to ask questions before, during and after watching a video. Also included are activities on using information from the video and their own ideas to make inferences.
Please try this activity with your class, adapt as you wish and feel free to share their questions and inferences in the ‘Reply’ section below or by tweeting #SharesEase.
