TED lessons are great supplements to planned lessons. They also make great mini-lessons. They are also PERFECT for sub days! I often use TED lessons as make-up work or extra credit for students. My students LOVE TED Talks!
These TED Talks and worksheets are appropriate for high school-level Social Studies and English courses. I use all five of these TED Talks and worksheets with my Life Skills and Social Studies students.
Each talk and companion worksheet can be completed in one class period or assigned as homework.
Answer keys included.
