How I Use It
I have used BrainPop Jr. for many lessons. This past week I used it for an introduction to letter writing. My class is writing friendly letters so only the first part of the video was appropriate for the lesson.
a) The videos are academically engaging for all students. b) The website does not require downloads. c) BrainPOP provides videos for Spanish Speaking Students and ESL Students.
Cons of using BrainPOP: a) The videos only provide animations, therefore may lack some realistic aspect to the material. b) There are not videos for every topic in Language Arts in Brain PopJr.
