I've used TED in my classroom since I began teaching junior high. The videos are brief, engaging, and unique. They cover so many topics that I teach in my classroom and are the perfect length for a warm up or a break in a lecture or an extension. Each quarter I require students to complete a weekly literacy assignment in science. Last quarter, students had to respond to current events but this quarter I'm going to have them choose their own TED Ed to listen to and analyze. Feel free to snag a copy of the weekly response sheet I'm using this next quarter.
