Susan Cain: The power of introverts

My first video comprehension lesson on TED-Ed

Last year I wrote about Susan Cain’s brilliant TED talk on empowering introverts.

I have just used the same talk to make my first ‘flipped’ lesson on TED-Ed. A flipped lesson is one that has taken an existing video and used it for a new lesson and TED-Ed is a spin off from TED for specifically for flipped lessons. In this case I just added a glossary and some comprehension questions.

Check it out here and give me some feedback.
