  5. 5. VIDEOS IN THE CLASSROOM  Plan using three phases:  Phase 1: Provide questions (prompts) that focus your students on what you believe is important in the video. Consider why you are having them watch the video, and what you hope they will learn from watching it. You can list the prompts on the board or on a worksheet that you hand out in class or post online before class. You can have students write down their answers or submit them using electronic resources (see below for ideas).  Phase 2: Watch the video as a class. Don’t be afraid to stop the video to point out something important if you think it will be useful to the students. Model the engagement with the video that you desire from your students.  Phase 3: Debrief as a class or in small groups about the students’ answers to the prompts you gave them. Make sure that they have achieved your goals for having them watch the video.
