How I Use It
I have used shmoop videos to introduce topics or reinforce concepts presented in my math class. They have a fun presentation that strikes the attention of teenagers which is not always an easy task! Sometimes I use them to generate converstions and discussions about topics while other times I use them as an "exit activity" to recap topics. The videos also provide connections to real life which is helpful for students to see purpose in what they are learning.
The videos are short and summarize topics - great supplemental tool to incorporate into teaching but serve more as a means to vary instruction vs. teach content.
