I totally want to be part of your team!! I love your website! It's such an AMAZING resource for teachers! I was sharing it with several of my colleagues here at my school and they were ALL ABOUT IT!! Really, teaching in today's society almost DEMANDS some interface with digital media! For several years I have been working on finding various clips (3-6 minutes) with which to start my class lessons (I teach high school geometry and algebra I) They are great hooks and really DO enhance student learning and student attention! I am a 24 year veteran of education and know what works and THIS DOES!! Its very exciting! I have a small library of clips that I use--not all are from TV shows or movies as your website is, but they are amazingly helpful in aiding me to do the best job I can!
I love this site! I am a huge media consumer so I’ve always wanted a site to incorporate media clips into my lessons. As a busy classroom teacher, I just never had the time needed to look for clips, but thanks to this site, I am now able to. GREAT JOB! I have shown this to my grade level and they are starting to use it too!
ClassHook is MORE than great! It is an easy tool that be used in any lesson to "hook" our students and gain their interest. It uses clips from movies and videos that are directly related to any subject area. It helps to jumpstart class discussions!! With it being so easy to use, you can plug in a quick clip ANYWHERE! No hassle!! If you haven't gotten "hooked" up with ClassHook....you are definitely missing out!!!
I love ClassHook and felt it would be very useful for our teachers. My experience with ClassHook has been wonderful. I love the way pop culture can easily infuse into the lessons with your site. During the workshop, my teachers especially loved the clip with the little girl on The Ellen Show teaching Biology. It was hilarious. Thank you for providing such a wonderful service.
I have found that using video-clips as hooks is an invaluable part of my toolbox of anticipatory sets. For example, I was able to use a clip from Fight Club to help students understand and engage with the portrayal of the September massacres in A Tale of Two Cities. This was easily the highest-engagement day of the whole unit!
ClassHook worked perfectly for what I needed. I used a few videos clips to introduce adaptations to my 3rd graders. I am looking forward to using it again. I shared with an 8th grade science teacher I know and he loved it so shared it with a colleague of his. Double thumbs up for content!
ClassHook is a fantastic resource for teachers. As a Language Arts teacher, I use ClassHook to spice up a lesson, reinforce a concept, or provide a valuable 5-minute lesson at the end of class if I've mistimed the lesson plan.
