Find Streaming Videos from John Stossel to engage your students in discussions about interesting and thought-provoking issues. Each month this site posts a new video for your use, and all videos come with suggested discussion questions. Also, you will find lots of discussion topics in the archived section titled with categories like the environment, celebrities, and consumer issues, just to name a few. You don't even have to register to view the videos and discussion questions!

There are some items of interest on the top menu bar: Teacher Ideas to Share, Teacher Guides, and More Teacher Resources. You might be interested in their offer of a free DVD with selected, edited for the classroom, programs from the 20/20 T. V. series.

tag(s): endangered species (40), financial literacy (91), foreign policy (15), news (260), politics (97)

In the Classroom

Use these streaming videos to help create "background knowledge" for your student, and improve listening and note taking skills. Small groups of students could rotate through stations with the video, or you can use it with the whole class. Either way, students can practice their two column (Cornell) note taking skills using the left column for keywords and/or questions and the right side of the paper for important information about the topic they are viewing. Have students discuss and look up answers to their questions.

If using the videos as a whole class, you may want to use a discussion program that allows "backchanneling" such as Socrative,reviewed here, so everyone can comment on the issue(s) presented and see each other thoughts.

Another idea is to use the videos as a jump-off point for research by small groups. There are many huge topics you can break into parts for small groups to investigate after watching Stossel's take on it. Then challenge the groups to create a multimedia presentation using one of many TeachersFirst Edge tools reviewed here.
