Even though I use Google Classroom to distribute, collect, grade, and return assignments to my students, I still feel like I’m constantly reading notes or accountability activities to make sure that my students have actually done what I’ve asked them to do!! I asked myself earlier this week whether or not I’m grading their knowledge of the concept or whether or not they’ve done what I asked them to do…two different things.
Am I alone in this headache?
Here’s how my flipped video procedures works…right now:
- I assign the video and a reinforcing/accountability activity through Google Classroom
- I give the students 1-2 nights to view the video and complete the activity
- Students complete the activity (which includes their notes) and submit via Google Classroom
- I assign the video and an accountability activity through Google Classroom. Examples of these activities can be found on my Social Studies Flipped Videos and Activities page.
- I create a brief quiz using Google Forms for students to complete AFTER they watch the video. If students score at least 80% on that quiz, they are able to move on to the activity in class. If they don’t score at least an 80% on the quiz, they have to watch the video again in class, AND will most likely be behind on the activities/assignments that their classmates are completing in class.
- Students submit the accountability activity that includes their notes through Classroom.
- I grade the quiz created by Google Forms…which gives me better indication of their understanding of the concept!
