Abstract

In this learning module, teachers will facilitate the learning of poetry by conducting a hybrid-collaborative flipped learning environment. That is, students will view short video clips or visual texts before class as a way to increase background knowledge and/or prepare them with the knowledge needed for the activities that will take place in the classroom the following day. Specific new learning principles (ubiquitous learning, active knowledge making, multimodal meaning, collaborative intelligence, metacognition, differentiated learning, etc..) and Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol (SIOP) methods (scaffolding activities, sentence frames, digital supports, etc..) are embedded in both the learning and instructional panels of this learning module. Through this learning module, English language learners will gain better access to the content and strengthen their skills in all language domains.
