How I Use It
I have used Ted Ed as a hook for many lessons, and I have always found it to be inspiring to students. For the most part, I have developed lessons first and then sought an appropriate video to use as a hook, but I would like to explore the app more fully.
TED videos prompt better classroom discussion than other introductions I've tried, and I find that it is a great tool for differentiating instruction. In addition to working well as a hook for previously prepared lessons, teachers will find this a useful tool for seeking their own inspiration for future lessons.
