Video-Based Learning Module

As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

  • Why does Lynn do this activity a second time with youth?
  • Why does Lynn ask youth so many questions about their choices and understanding?

Now that you’ve watched the video, reflect on what you saw.

  • How could you use a similar assessment technique in other STEM activities?
  • What are other activities that could help you connect their everyday activities to STEM?
