If needed, the teacher could complete the first few questions of the quiz to review the skill prior to having students complete questions on their own. Students could also work with a partner or small group to complete the questions. The teacher can play the video and show the quiz questions to the class as a whole, or the website could be shared with students to be viewed on their own digital devices.
