Teaching at home

Engaged learners ask lots of questions. This time home together is a great opportunity to model that skill. While we are all home together with our families, many of us will find ourselves watching more movies or television that we normally do. Take this chance to engage with your student. Ask them why they chose what they are watching. What do they find appealing about it? Does it make them want to know more about something? If it is funny, try to have your student explain why it is funny and provide examples of other things that are funny in the same way.
