At the end of the day, I would review the notes I did with my students think about this image:
I always assume English skills are natural (especially, for my native speakers). So, why are they struggling? No matter how much I teach it, there are going to be some kids who see it this way.
That doesn’t necessarily mean the student or I are inadequate when it comes to teaching and learning (respectively).
There are a number of reasons why a student (and teacher) may not understand how someone teaches. We have to be mindful of that as teachers.
In light of learning different ways, flipped classrooms and constructivism took off. Kiddos, you don’t have to worry about what that means specifically. Just know that it meant we had to come up with new ways to help you learn. I did my research for alternative lessons and found so many resources for college students. But, what about high school kids? They need help, too. Reviewing all of the video creators below, I found that these would be the most engaging, helpful, and appropriate for 9-12th graders.
Teachers and Students, bookmark these so you can study for your classes while clicking through YouTube! (Because: we always need an excuse to justify why we’re on YouTube!)

Personally, I use CrashCourse and Overly Sarcastic Productions for my classrooms and personal studies most. They are the most humorous and relevant to ELA and historical studies.
