Related Reading

Posted by allisyn on

I spent last weekend with an amazing group of teachers in Florida. Though they were already using BrainPOP with their students, many of them were not aware of our Related Reading feature — filled with fun, high interest reading and a comic to delve deeper into our topics. Gary Barone, a BrainPOP Educator from Mercer Island, WA, shared the following, which seems to capture the experience of many educators:
I learned about the Related Reading portion of the Brainpop movies. I think for too long I had depended on just the movie and quiz portions. I had no idea about how the Related Reading gives students or even a teacher a chance to expand on the subject movie for the concept. OF course now I can check with the Educators portion to share this information or how I even used it in the classroom.

Have you checked out the Related Reading? How will you use it with your students? Please post comments below!
