Teacher Review for BrainPOP

When you need a break, Tim and Moby can explain SO many topics better than you ever thought you could! And students love the quizzes!

How I Use It
I love how well these Brainpop lessons explain content AND add humor. I typically the videos twice in a row - once just to watch, and the second time to watch, pause, and discuss. The quizzes are useful as summative assessments. The hand-outs can be used for homework or assignments.
My Take
I love the Brainpop videos, quizzes, and extensions. I like the closed-caption language for my ELL and special needs students.
