Using Recap as an Integration Activity

In this clip, Michèle Palmieri-Colatriano, ESL teacher at La Dauversière primary school (CSPI), explains how and why she uses Recap as an integration activity at the end of a LES.

Michèle uses the texts written by the MEES Ask an Expert – Bedbugs for Intensive ESL and adapts them into an LES. Students become experts on bedbugs to answer specific questions in the form of a letter, as well as to think critically about scientific information. At the end, they record their answers in the app called Recap. This document is used to help formulate the right question in this specific activity.

Recap is an easy video response multiplatform tool that can be used to allow students to answer reflection questions about:

-  What they learned.
-  What they liked.
-  What strategies they used in the learning sequence.
-  What questions still remain.
-  How they feel about the task.
-  How will they proceed.
