In order to familiarize yourself with the content of the Learning Adventure, we suggest that you preview the video prior to using it with your students. Doing this will allow you to choose appropriate before, during, and after activities and discussions that reflect the themes highlighted in the Adventure.
Check out the learning resources & interactive media accompanying each Learning Adventure. These contain links to articles, activities and more to help expand you and your students’ knowledge on the subject. These can be used before or after viewing the Learning Adventure with student(s).
Since these live events are pre-recorded, students are not able to participate in the polls. Instead, pause the video and ask your students the poll questions and to vote by raising their hands. Then compare your results to the results of the live audience. Or create your own poll using online polling sites.
Some educators and students may not have the time to watch an entire episode of our Learning Adventures. For those cases, we have clips of the Learning Adventures that you can use. Browse the clips and choose one or more that fits the time frame for your lesson plan.
