There are 54 slides (3 per week for 18 weeks) each slide contains the link to the video and 2 – 3 comprehension questions that will get your students thinking. They are great for middle school and high school students.
Each video is between 2 – 5 minutes long. The questions focus on reading comprehension like questions such as: setting, point of view, character, plot, theme, tone, mood, summary, conflict, cause and effect, compare and contrast, text evidence, inference and more. These questions also open the door for mini-lessons or reteach lessons.

Please note that most of these video links require access to vimeo (a few are housed on YouTube). While most of these videos are very mild, there are a few that have some tense moments. Please watch the video before showing it to your class to make sure that it is appropriate for your students.
