The video, Beijing Welcomes You, will be played in Pane 1 as students entering the session. The lyrics/English translation file (attachment) is available for students to download.
2-Pane 3/Survey Preferred Social Media Survey
Students will take the Preferred Social Media survey in Pane 3 at the beginning of the session. The questions and choices are tied to the Module 1 lesson content, Messages. Since the survey includes English, Chinese, and Pinyin/phonics, it is also a good review in the target language for students.

Here is a Presenter Note to remind students of the assignments that are due on Wednesday.

After reviewing the module vocabularies, students will do a Vocabulary Matching activity in Pane 4. In order for students to have the tools access during this activity, the image of the Vocabulary List will be opened in Pane 3 and then be inserted to Whiteboard in Pane 4.

8- Pane 4/Quizizz, to participate the game activity
Students listen to the dialogue clip in Pane 1 and answer questions about the dialogue. This is a game activity that students use Quizizz web link, enter the game code, and participate.
9- Pane 3/Survey-Evaluation Backup activity for Dialogue Listening and Speaking
As a backup for the dialogue activity, I also created a Survey/Evaluation in Pane 3.
A well-planned and organized lesson is one of the key factors for a successful session. The Storyboard template helps tremendously in planning and organizing the lesson. It is as a roadmap for a trip; if you plan ahead, you will have better, smoother traveling. It is a great idea to use the printed Storyboard/lesson plan for the pre-session practice and during the session. I also plan a backup activity (similar activity, but using different format/pane), just in case of the original plan does not go well.
