Lesson Plan

  1. Have students reflect on previous lessons and share with a partner.

  2. Give students time to share their thoughts on the importance of the topic.

Learn360 and Classroom Video on Demand work well in the blended classroom. Students can watch the video or complete the activity at their own pace at home.

2. Show the video and discuss.


1. Share the link to the video or activity so that students can review and practice their skills. This can be done outside of the classroom.

2. Review the activity or video one more time and ask if there are any questions.

3. Give the students a practice sheet and have them work in small groups as they complete it.


1. Create another practice sheet and have students complete it on their own.

2. Review any gaps in their understanding.
