Instructional Ideas

  • Use the video in a reading comprehension lesson or to complete a lesson about transition words when writing
  • Provide additional examples of each writing structure, including work from previous assignments in the school year
Classroom Considerations

  • The video is a little long for one sitting; consider breaking it up throughout a class and focusing on one part at a time
  • The passages are a little elevated for elementary readers but would work for middle schoolers
  • The fifth in a ten-video series about reading comprehension
Pros

  • Connects several writing structures and concepts in one video, making it a good addition to both reading and writing units
Cons

  • The video is not very engaging
  • Contains too much text on the reading sides
