  • As a Microsoft Word document, you can edit the questions and create a new student worksheet
  • Includes video clips and writing/discussion prompts

  • The time stamps on the worksheet do not line up exactly according to the video excerpts provided on the website; however, you can ask the same questions and adjust the time stamps after you have previewed the video
