In the ClassroomChoose reviews from the site to watch together as a class before beginning a persuasive writing project or before students write about things that interest them. Share the video(s) on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Discuss effective and less effective word choices. Allow students to upload a video instead of completing a written assignment after pre-determining rubrics for assessment. (Be sure to get parental permission first, of course). Have students view videos and choose one that is opposite to their opinion. Write or upload their own thoughts on the same subject. This would be a fun way for students to complete and share short book reports, or have students view videos already on the site to help choose new books for personal reading. This site is also an effective way to teach netiquette and internet safety: how to comment politely, how to maintain a profile and activity as you want others to know you, etc.
