In a stack of papers called Instruction.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are now days when I present a little something that students need to take notes on. I make a quiz about once every two weeks based on our growing stash of notes. Tomorrow will see us tackle the topic of how to be assertive. I’m curious how long it will take my students to realize that this video is not at all serious in its depiction, though it may be in terms of its content.

My plan here is to show a step at a time, then pause the video to extrapolate on the ideas a bit more. I’ll create some scenarios and ask for participation, then move on to the next step. At the end, we’ll talk about who got what information and how the notes look. We’ll then move to giving our notes the Cornell treatment and create possible test questions in the left margin.

I looked through a lot of possibilities, but narrowed to this one because I want to keep it short and at least moderately fun here at the beginning. That lecture about why the earth has seasons, though a bit dry, is certainly coming because that’s good practice, too. I aim to get videos about several different disciplines, so suggestions for other quality videos are welcome. I’ll be delivering some of these lectures myself, too, PowerPoint on some and no visuals on others.
