Many speech students are visual learners and have a heard time making connections with information presented in the academic classroom. I have used video clips found through YouTube to help my students make these connections. When I know what the students are learning in their classrooms, I like to find a fun clip related to pop culture or just a catchy tune to help them make these connections. I help them understand why the humor in some TV shows/movies are funny if they understand the connections. Below are some of my favorites to use!
Do you have students reading “Of Mice & Men?” They will love this video clip from FRIENDS.
Do you have students learning about the Boston Tea Party? Check out this Geico Commercial by clicking HERE!
