What was your experience, both successes and challenges, using this lesson object with your students?
This lesson was a fairly typical for a lesson in our Spanish class. I had a problem exposing students to enough repetition of each new vocabulary and grammar structures so they can easily understand them all when used together in the story presentation. Quizlet live is one way we practice the words, but only when most of the students are familiar with the most of the new vocabulary. It’s a fast paced activity and can feel overwhelming if the students aren’t very familiar with the words. The quizlet flashcards are linked on google classroom from the beginning of each unit and students are encouraged to use the quizlet resources to study on their own at any time.
I discovered way I ran the recap activity was difficult for a few of my students.
I asked each student to take a chromebook and find a quiet space to answer the questions on recap. The lack of structure made it too easy for a few students to avoid the assignment or not turn anything in. When this happened it was difficult to provide another opportunity to complete the recap without the chromebooks in class.
I also discovered that this assignment was too long. I asked too many questions and the questions themselves were too long. In the future I will limit each recap to 3-4 questions and make each question very specific with a one part answer. Lastly, I haven’t found a good way to provide feedback when looking at the recap recordings. There is a place for comments under the videos, but I don’t feel the comments would get back to the students.
