Teaching Videos

By Alan Haskvitz

Whether it is looking for quality videos to help illustrate a point or to help refresh your teaching style, the Internet has become the go-to place for finding such material. The main source for variety is YouTube, but that may be blocked by school districts. You may be able to make copies of acceptable videos at home and show them at school depending on copyright and district policy. As always, if you know of free quality videos please let me know. You can email me by clicking on my name at http://www.reacheverychild.com/alan.html

Here are some educational sites that provide videos on many different subjects, but always take the time to preview these due to the lack of consistency.

There is also an abundance of good PowerPoint presentations that might provide for more detail for your lessons.
