How I Use It
I use this site when introducing new concepts such as plot diagrams, comparing/contrasting, and how to read nonfiction information to my students. The lessons are specific to the topic, long enough to show information, and short enough to hold students' attention. I can stop the videos at points to discuss individual parts to check for understanding, answer questions, and ask for examples.
I really enjoy using LearnZillion in my classes. It is great for various learning levels, and my students don't see the explanations as "lectures" from me. Many of my students have told me that they have viewed the videos at home while working on out-of-class writing assignments.
