Students who struggle to connect to content may suddenly “get it” when we integrate pop culture and favorite flicks. Check out Movieclips for a huge selection of movie scenes and video clip mashups to share.
This fantastic site not only has clips on every topic but the very best part of the site is being able to make your own mashups (a collection of clips strung together)! Here is a mashup of inspirational speeches– this one might be used by an English teacher during a discussion, lesson, or unit on speech writing or persuasion.
Want to personalize this tool to reach all students in your classrooms? Poll them to find out favorite movies and actors and incorporate their ideas into your lessons!
