Tried it Tuesday ~ Ted-Ed

I love Tried It Tuesday because I always find new and exciting things for my classes!  This week is no exception...I found this neat site called Ted Ed.

Ted Ed lets you take You Tube videos and make great lessons from them or use the lessons that have already been developed by others.  See for yourself:

I haven't made any of my own lessons yet, but I did find a great video lesson for The Hero's Journey which is what my 8th graders are studying now.

You can see the video, but then there's some great questions for review under "Think" that can be done individually or with the whole class, some great resources for "Dig Deeper" (shown) and then some discussion questions!  I am going to show the video in class, but I will also provide a link to it from my Edmodo page so students can watch and re-watch if they need extra time and/or practice on the subject.

I am already thinking how I might want to make my own Ted Ed lesson...

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. This sounds like something I should definitely look into! Thanks!
