A great way to help students make connections between the text and the video is to use the pairing questions and prompts that we suggest in the blurbs for our related media. As students read the text and watch or listen to the related media, consider having them take notes on the significant details that relate to the pairing questions. Then, have them respond to a pairing prompt or question in writing. This will give students a great start on the brainstorming for an extended essay or even a class discussion. Please feel free to download our related media graphic organizer and tailor it to your own classroom needs.
