Reflective Planning with BrainPop!


BrainPop offers a bank of pre-built lesson plans and also allows Educators to search for videos and activities tied to standards, grade, or subject area.


Reflective Planning
Search for great lesson plans and read blog posts by educators on BrainPop and BrainPop Educators.  Begin your search for a lesson plan through reflective planning based on the data of your student population (look at your states Department of Education website to access this information).  As you review lesson plans consider strategies, pedagogy, and methods of assessment that will work for your students.

  4. I just wanted to express my thanks for coming to my Exploring Teaching and Learning class at Kennesaw State University to give a presentation on BrainPop. My group for a project implemented a BrainPop video, and we could not have done so without your information on the many resources of BrainPop! Thank you!
