How to Advance Through a Playlist on Sophia.org

As we move into a more self-paced unit, some of you independent readers are going to want to move ahead in the videos. I am putting all of the videos in a playlist on sophia.org for the novel Night. Think of the tutorials as the daily lesson in class that we have "flipped" and moved home for homework. The tutorials are then put into a playlist, or a unit of study. You can move through the unit of study at your own pace! See the diagram below to see how you do it! You just click in the top right hand corner of the playlist to move to the next concept/lesson! Good luck as you start this journey on your own (well some of you!) I am excited to see how you do with this unit!
