Sometimes teachers plan to share movies with their students after some sort of summative evaluation. I remember being able to watch a movie based on a book as a reward for completing a unit on it, how about you? I loved that, even though now it seems a little odd to me that it was used as a culminating reward instead of an integral part of the unit of study. Anyway, students LOVE watching videos in class. Did you know that there are over 1 million fans of the facebook page “we’re watching a video today” “YESS!” “Here’s your question sheet” “UGH!”? How’s that for kids telling us what they find engaging???
This is a perfect time to share LIFE with your students if you have DEstreaming plus. Even if you don’t, there’s no time like the present to share Planet Earth with your students. It’s available in DEstreaming.
