Materials Development 1: Grockit Answers

Below you'll find links to the overview, lesson plan, and technology tool used in my first materials development assignment.  I used this lesson in class this week, and it worked well, despite a few students not getting signed in (I saw them typing their answers in class, but I'm not sure where those answers went).  I was planning to do something different in class that day, but decided to use this lesson instead.  It turned out to be a great way to encourage (and require) participation from all students without causing too much anxiety for those who are accustomed to a more teacher-centered classroom.  Students continued to talk about the Grockit Video throughout the week.  In a class that starts at 7:55am, it's important to give students a task to do while watching a video.  Otherwise, it may be tempting for some students to close their eyes and fall asleep.... I'm glad I learned about this tool.
