  2. Provide some content for the students to do at home. (Audio, video, interactive website, etc).
  3. To take home and measure understanding:
    • Give students a prompt, 
    • literacy strategy
    • notes
    • other activity
    • Or a check in form
  4. When student return to class, use the time for:
    •  small group work
    • higher order thinking
    • debate
    • 1:1 assistance
    • extension activities
    • checking for misconceptions
    • lab work
