Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Germaphobes, Beware!!!! - Section 1: Warm-Up


As a practice, I share video clips with students whenever possible.  Visual images stimulate students’ thoughts about the concept that will be taught and they allow for increased understanding of how organisms work.  Use search engines to identify a myriad of clips that that can help introduce or reinforce a concept for students.  I utilize clips from a variety of sources.  

I encourage teachers to conduct this type of search activity at home because your district security wall might not allow you to access YouTube or many other websites where relevant clips can be found.

Once I locate a clip, I  download it to  the ILivid download manager as a means to save the clip so that I will be able to view the clip at school.  It’s helpful to maintain downloaded clips in organized folders by content so that you will be able to locate them in the future. Taking the time to organize clips into content folders  is an effective strategy that will help you build great lessons efficiently, without starting over from scratch every time.
