Pen and paper for note taking. I'll also supply and outline of the lesson material for learners to follow along with and take notes.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Informal assessment will take place throughout the lesson by asking students if they have questions or comments throughout lessons.  There will also be opportunities to answer poll questions in the chat box.
