As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

What does staff do here to connect prior knowledge to the idea of an electrical circuit? (0:10 - 0:30)

What is staff doing here to engage youth in the activity? (0:58 - 1:05)

How do staff model strategies connecting youth to the science principles they are currently learning about? (1:15 -1:26)

What would you do differently to connect youth's prior knowledge about circuitry?

Now that you've watched the video, reflect on what you saw and post your responses.

Why is it important for staff to engage in the activity alongside youth?

This is not guided collaboration.  Rather the staff is telling the students what they should know.
Were youth engaged in this activity?  How could you tell?
Using the activity as a guide, how could you connect what youth are learning about electrical circuits to real world issues or concerns?
