What’s New at BrainPOP: August Recap

Posted by jglassman on

It’s Back-to-School time and BrainPOP is ready for you and your students!  Here’s a recap of what’s new.


Fannie Lou Hamer NEW

New Easy-to-Use Standards Alignments!

Standards alignments on BrainPOP are now easier to find and use!  Simply click the big teal STANDARDS button on any topic page to see how BrainPOP resources are aligned at each grade to CCSS, NGSS, and your state standards.

When you select a specific grade or state, we remember! Next time you log in, your grade will already be pre-selected. The same goes with the national standards. Whether you choose CCSS or NGSS, that will be your default.  

No one knows the standards and how to apply them better than teachers like you. That’s why we hired educators across the country—of all grade levels and subject areas—to help us make the alignments. Knowing that BrainPOP is aligned by educators–not a robot (no offense, Moby!)—you can rest assured that the standards selected for each topic are thorough and reliable. Read about our teacher aligners.
