Reflection: Student Ownership Rosa Parks: Analyzing Complex Text Structure-Practice Makes Perfect - Section 2: Cue Set


The kids loved this video!  Make sure to emphasize what the purpose of the video is (to entertain) and what the main point of the video is (how David reacts to anestisia).  That will lead them to correctly identify the structure of the video: cause/effect. 

Students loved this video so much because it was actually a suggestion from one of my students.  I like to integrate as much of their feedback into my lessons as possible, so when they have a favorite song, YouTube clip, etc. I make a mental note.  Then, whenever possible, I integrate their "favorites" into our lessons. This helps students feel more ownership over the classroom and makes them want to complete the work.  

  Loved this video!
