Instead of boring lectures that students tune out, introduce or review EVERY secondary reading literature, reading informational text and grammar common core state standards using informative and engaging "mini-lesson" videos (QR code & URL formats)!
- Word DOC containing 78 URL video links
- PDF containing 78 QR codes
We all know kids will pay attention to anything that is on a screen. Whether you struggle with classroom management or you can't hook student interest in mini lessons, you can reduce teacher talk time and increase student focus by replacing lectures, mini-lessons and test prep review with videos that introduce, explain and give clear examples of secondary reading skills!
Don't stress about scripting a mini lesson or designing informational PowerPoint slides for a lecture or review session. Simply press play and let the engaging video do the work!
This is perfect for traditional mini lessons, test prep or as an engaging edtech tool for a blended classroom for students to watch independently on their personal computers or tablets.
Common Core ELA mini-lessons and edtech blended learning are fun and easy with videos!
Never plan another mini-lesson!
Never have disengaged students or classroom management stress again!
Simply play videos to teach ELA skills!
