Working in Groups
One practice I’ve found helpful is to create a Google Doc outline of each lecture and structure it as a "worksheet" - i.e., I might include a list of terms to define in one section, then leave a blank space for a free-writing exercise after that, and include links to videos/external sources/quizzes as appropriate. I make a copy of this for each student, so that we both have access to and add in the new day's outline at the bottom of the document before class. This gives students a template for their note-taking, a place for them to complete in-class activities, and they are easy to follow along with if students have to make up a class by watching a recorded Zoom lecture. I usually keep a separate window open with these files in different tabs in case I need to check that a student is participating.
