The two videos up top are two videos that i found that address quadrilaterals. I think that tackling the subject of quadrilaterals can be quite difficult. I picked the two videos up top because, although they may be cheesy, i did find them helpful as well as possibly something that may be useful to me as i teach down the road.
Video 1: OK, this is REALLY cheesy and kind of strange but i chose it for a reason. At first when i viewed this video, i thought it was weird and not what i wanted to write about. I listened to it for roughly about a minute and them moved on. As i looked through video upon video of dull professors and teachers lecturing about the properties of a quadrilateral in a extremely mono-tone voice, i found myself singing the quadrilateral song that i choose to skip. I found this amazing. i thought it was so silly but in the end, it did its job. It teaches the properties and types of quadrilaterals, and it stuck! i found this really cool. This would be an idea that you could incorporate when you are first introducing the subject or even as review before you dig into the deeper things about quadrilaterals.
Video 2: I liked this video because, well.. 1. i really liked the "communicator" i though that that would be very helpful in the classroom and that it would allow there to be more hands on work that the students could partake in. Also, i liked the questions that the guy was asking. Although he just buzzed right through them, i believe that if students were given the worksheet and really given time to "chew" on the questions asked, it could REALLY aide in the process of learning the new, confusing concept of quadrilaterals.
As a "teacher in training" i think that its a really good idea to look on the internet and collaborate with other teachers and "steal" their ideas and figure out how you would incorporate them into your class room. I thought these videos would be useful to incorporate into my ideas for my future class.
