This lesson was filmed during the lockdown, so it is sequenced quite differently to a lesson taught in person. The students complete a short activity every day, that leads into the following days 'lesson' (Google Meet session) and activity.
In this lesson, my students first watched a video and completed an activity that explained what a clause is. This was recapped in the Google Meet session to ensure all the students grasped the concept.
The students then worked on a shared Google Doc to unpack a short text and identify dependent and independent clauses in the sentences.
The inspiration from this lesson came from PD I received from Dr Jannie Van Hees.
It is great to see that my students are starting to develop good habits for learning from home. I can definitely feel my online practice improving over time - it has been a real adjustment with some trial and error!
Things to note
As we are filming from home, I didn't feel comfortable sharing my students screens in the hangout, so I have used the blue box to hide them but kept their responses in the audio. I also had to cut a lot of the work on Google Docs as the students full names were displayed.
