This YouTube Channel, created for middle and high school students digs deeper into issues (environmental, health, social and more) affecting their lives. Based on science and research, episodes provide information to help teens make informed conclusions on topics like fake news and social media. The classroom guide for teachers provides discussion questions for use before, during, and after videos along with alignment to Common Core Standards. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): drugs and alcohol (25), social media (26), social networking (111), social skills (21), sociology (22), video (279)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of the classroom guide to explore big questions found within each episode. Subscribe to this channel to receive notifications of new video additions. Use a tool such as Vizia, reviewed here, to add questions directly into the YouTube videos for students to complete as a flipped lesson before classroom instruction. Use a tool such as Voxer, reviewed here, for students to discuss their thoughts on the topic of each video.
