Classroom Considerations

Pros

  • The video provides a simple structure for learners to follow for creating a concluding sentence
Cons

  • The instructor highlights parts of the text that she will use for the conclusion, but does not explain her thought process in selecting those particular sections of texts; have a discussion with your learners about why they would or wouldn't have chosen the same details that the instructor did
  • The final sentence created by the instructor is not a complete sentence; discuss with students why this is so and have them reword it so that the sentence is complete
