How I Use It
I use Brainpop's video of the day to start off my classroom discussion each morning. I also use specific videos to introduce concepts or to reinforce skills. Most times I use this during whole class instruction.
My Take
Great, engaging videos for introducing new concepts or reviewing skills in a new way. The quizzes following the movies a good and my students need to be listening closely to score well. The videos often provide a good starting point for a class discussion on a particular historical event. Even though it's always Tim and Moby, my students always look forward to them.
