Poodll MiniLesson combines several language learning activities into a simple, self-guided online lesson. It is designed to be a simple, interactive lesson for students, and easy for teachers to create and deliver.
A MiniLesson activity is comprised of a sequence of lesson items. Teachers create lesson items and add them to the lesson from the lesson items tab of a mini lesson.
There are six lesson item types:
- Content Page
- Multi Choice
- Dictation Chat
- Speech Cards
- Listen and Speak
The content page is the most basic of the lesson items. The author can add content in the form of text , video, audio, image or iframe content blocks. The content page is the only lesson item that has no student response and is not graded.
The other lesson items also each allow the author to add content in a similar way, but also include a question or drill activity of some type.
The multi choice lesson item provides a single multi choice question.
The dictation item displays a list of text boxes and audio players. Students listen to the audio and type what they hear.
Dictation chat shows a series of dictation items, one at a time in a chat like interface. Each word to be entered is shown in a different text box and shown as correct/incorrect.
Speech cards show a series of audio response items in flashcard type interface. A 3 star rating is given to the students response.
Listen and Speak
Listen and speak shows a series of audio response items, one at a time in a chat like interface. Each word to be spoken is shown in a different text box and shown as correct/incorrect.
