Suggestions for a video-based workshop.

Part 1: Ask teachers to work in groups of 4 to brainstorm about the topic.

Groups write initial responses (or on tablets), and leader records on a flip
chart (or sends to the smart board) 

Part 2: Show an introductory video (2-5min)
Brief discussion comparing what was written in Part 1. (5min)

Part 3: Show a main video (10-20min)
Groups write an action plan: "How to become an effective teacher".
Presenter collects each group's plan.

Part 4: Recommend showing Rita Pierson's video to close your session on a
high note (7.5min)
