Fun supplemental tool to enhance lesson topics
The videos are short and summarize topics - great supplemental tool to incorporate into teaching but serve more as a means to vary instruction vs. teach content.
How I Use It
I have used shmoop videos to introduce topics or reinforce concepts presented in my math class. They have a fun presentation that strikes the attention of teenagers which is not always an easy task! Sometimes I use them to generate converstions and discussions about topics while other times I use them as an "exit activity" to recap topics. The videos also provide connections to real life which is helpful for students to see purpose in what they are learning.
