Example teacher review from Part 1 & 2 of Brain Games:
"I LOVE this resource because it is an easy way to introduce and practice main idea/supporting details without the labor of getting through a text. Students enjoy watching these clips and feel confident determining main idea and supporting details. I have used this with high schools students (9-12), but I think this will be a hit with my current 7th graders!"
