Captivate/Confer/Consolidate: Students were given a task to discuss the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on their lives. First, they watched a video that explained the origin of the virus, the impact of the outbreak, and how we should protect ourselves from infection. Then, students participated in an online discussion to reflect on and talk about how their lives have been affected by this health emergency. The culminating activity was an individual recording to share their thoughts with the class. Finally, students commented on their peer’s recordings. View an example here.
