Getting connecTED

26 Sep

I am really loving the usability of TED-Ed as a lesson flipping tool.  So much so, I have created another lesson.  Unlike the flipped lesson created yesterday, which aimed to use the video as the starting point of a student-centred search for related material, the lesson created today is very text specific.  Indeed, the aim is to get students thinking about the way the way a set text (‘Ancestors’ by Peter Skrzynecki) engages with the key tenets of the current HSC Area of Study (Belonging).

My observation is that the poem showcased in my flipped lesson is one of the more challenging of the Skrzynecki poems set for study.  With this in mind I have  selected a visual representation of the poem for student consideration, giving the students an additional source of information about meaning.  Hopefully, this will help them make connections.  I have also created highly structured activities.  This is in keeping with the aim of reinforcing students’ gathering and organisational skills.
