I've done a lot of Ted Talks with my students, but these four are the ones that have always been crowd pleasers. They are funny but still insightful and relevant to the students.
Includes QR codes and guide questions for the following talks:
"What I learned from 100 days of rejection"
"Don't eat the marshmallow!"
"The shared experience of absurdity"
"Inside the mind of a master procrastinator"
Each varies in time from 5 minutes to close to 20, so these are perfect to have in case you have a little bit of time to fill or an unexpected entire period. I like to use these in between units, on days where I am missing half of my class, right before holiday breaks...there are many occasions where you need to keep students engaged but can't use curriculum materials for various reasons.
The worksheets have QR codes on them, so students can easily access them on their own. The answers are provided and each worksheet includes an extension beyond just comprehension.
I hope your students love them as much as my students do!
