How I Use It
I use Brain Pop in the following ways: Introducing a unit Researching a subject Reviewing a subject previously taught Catching a student up who was absent or behind
My Take
I love using Brain Pop with my classroom. The short videos created interest in the subject that I plan on teaching. The questions at the end of the video help open up conversations. I have also used it with the class being given a subject to research on Brain Pop and then give a report on what they learned. Even my lower reading level students can be successful with Brain Pop.
