The ladies had beforehand been launched to the iOS “magic faucet” gesture (two-finger double faucet to begin/cease the podcast). The tech objective of the lesson was to apply the “magic faucet” VoiceOver gesture (two-finger double faucet). The language arts objectives are to apply listening and comprehending the auditory story, together with asking and answering questions.
Editor’s Observe: I like that the scholar is arising with the query – this exhibits that she can be comprehending the story – and it truly could also be tougher than answering a query!
Create playing cards with query phrases (who, what, how, why and when) brailled on index playing cards. The primary scholar chooses a card, opinions the query phrase, then makes use of the Magic Faucet to begin the story. The coed decides when to pause the podcast (after she has heard sufficient to give you a query). The primary scholar then asks the second scholar a query utilizing the given query phrase. The second scholar solutions the query. The primary scholar then confirms if the reply is right or not.
