Every teacher at one time or another has shown a video to his class, whether it be for educational purposes or as a reward for classroom goals being met. Unfortunately, a large number of angry parent phone calls are placed to administrators to complain about the showing of videos to their children. The reasons range from inappropriateness of content to the lack of a relationship between the class curriculum and the video. In order to maximize your video-viewing pleasure, take these suggestions into consideration:
3. Make your own copy of the video
4. Have a plan
6. Have a “Plan B”
7. Show video clips instead
Using these tips will show your supervisors that you are being purposeful with your use of videos in the classroom.
