View an inspirational movie clip from a favorite movie. Ask students to write about the clip using the word of the week (us an idea from the sentence examples or one of your own). Hundreds of movie clips -- usually less than 5 minutes -- are categorized by "theme" (achievement, bullying, cheating, determination, science, etc.) or by "category" (action & adventure, biography, civil rights, economics, education, football, historical, political, social issues, teen, Veteran's Day).

TED-Ed: Flip This Lesson!
With this feature, educators can use, tweak, or completely redo any video lesson featured on TED-Ed, or create lessons from scratch based on a TEDTalk or any video from YouTube. How? Just plug the video in and start writing questions, comments, even quizzes — then save the lesson as a private link and share with your students. The site allows you to see who’s completed the lessons and track individual progress. It’s still in beta, but we’re so excited about this feature we had to share.
