Today's focus was on oral texts and how they can aid the reader/listener in gaining a better understanding of the information that the author is trying to convey.
I showed the YouTube video from NASA below with only the audio for students to listen to and then take notes on. The Exit Ticket was for them to come up with the main idea. Then later on, I showed them the actual video.
We also talked about what interstellar space was (the space between solar systems).
