Type of session:



Identification of students:
Students will log-in so their individual scores will be available to you after the
SRS Activity will be anonymous
Briefly describe what will happen during the SRS Activity (For example:
What will students do? What will teacher do? What materials are needed? How
long will the SRS activity take?):
This activity will be linked to the classroom blog under the Flipped Classroom tab.
Here students will be able to practice on a device of their choice at home, an
important social studies standard, and be able to prepare for an in class
Blooms Level of Critical Thinking Required (check all that apply). See

Types of Questions/Prompts (Check all that Apply):
Multiple Select
Short Open-ended
response or fill-in-blank
Longer open-ended response
Provide samples of questions/prompts to be given to students:
On one side of the notecard it will list the name of the continent or ocean, and on
the other side will be highlighted to location of each.
Right/Wrong Answers: Will there be right/wrong answers to these questions? :
Mixed (Some will have correct answers, others will not.)
Immediate Corrective Feedback:
Will you pre-select correct answers to some or all of the questions and display the
correct response to the class after the SRS activity?
Why or why not? It is a review activity and not an actual assesesment.
Use of Data: What data will be collected as a result of this activity. How will it be
used and by whom? (For example: Will information collected from this activity be
used to award a grade? Will the individual information collected be shared with
students and/or parents to help them monitor individual progress? Will you
discuss the aggregate, anonymous data with the whole class to help them learn?
Will you use data to differentiate instruction for students? If so, describe how. )
No data will be collected. If I was using more of an inclass response activity
especially as an assesement, I would have to collect data, but for this purpose
none will be collected.
Describe what will occur after the SRS activity: We will do the flashcard
activity as a class for an additional review.
Describe your personal learning goal for this activity. (For example: What
are you trying that you have not tried before? What do you hope to learn from
this activity? How do you hope it will help students learn? You must design
something that will help you learn something new! Honor System!) My goal for
this activity, is to have each student spend some time doing this Quizlet activity.
Whether they make a game of it, or do it flashcard style, any type of review will
be such a positive in their learning of this standard.
