The participants in this training cover a wide variety of grade levels/content areas, so if you were unable to find a lot of video content specific to your needs, please let me know and I will see what I can find for you!

If you haven’t posted a comment on the blogpost yet, don’t rush. There is no formal deadline, and I’ll email you to remind you if I don’t see a response from you in the next few weeks.

The next part of this training is designed to provide you with some searching strategies and ideas for using video in the classroom. There is no “written” assignment for this part of the training. In fact, I am simply trusting that you will explore the resources I’m sharing. There is no “formal” assignment at all! Of course, if you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me.

    This site has a large array of mathematical teaching videos. Topics that I would most likely to use in my classroom are Geometry and Algebra One. Each topic has extensive list of short videos to choose from on different concepts being taught in the course. This site could be used to introduce a new topic to a class or for a student who has missed a topic. There are also examples on this site a student could use if he/she needed more help after a lecture.
