With so many amazing features, what's yours? #Q1#BPOPchat#A1 Movies are by far my favorite! I love how BP combines narrative storytelling and dialogue-driven scripts to make difficult content comprehensible for everyone!
There are a number of cross-content videos available on @BrainPOPELL as well. I know that a lot of science teachers at my school show the Scientific Method ELL movie before showing the @brainpop or @AnnieAndMoby movie. Great appetizer. #bpopchat#ell#A1

A2: After watching the movie, students have the choice of make a map, make a movie, or Creative Coding. Make a movie allows the students to record in the own language. Make a Map has built in keywords to help the students with vocabulary. Coding is a universal language! #BPOPchat
@brainpop has so many different actiities and options for students to choose from, I love having "multiple-pathways" for students to acheive mastery by allowing students to choose the activities/features they use to show their learning. #A2#bpopchat#ell
A3: Make-a-Movie is a great way to help develop conversation skills. I have had my students create a movie as partners. It allows them to practice and listen to their discussion while teaching others! #BPOPchat
A3: I originally fell in love with BPOP over 10 years ago. I taught ELL for 22 years b4 becoming a TI & I used a lot of BP movies. The focus on vocab is key. Now I can spread my knowledge of differentiation for ELL students through using BrainPOP to everyone. #BPOPchat#ELL
A4: Hopping on the Make-a-Map band wagon, but I absolutely love this feature as a way to brainstorm ideas and connect those ideas into knowledge. The embedded movie truly helps reinforce the concepts. #BPOPchat
I love having students that the @BrainPOPELL Placement test at the beginning of a semester and at the end to see the growth they have made throughout our time together. You can find the placement test here: https://t.co/HzOV7I1N26#BPOPchat#ell
A5: If you take a look at your dashboard over time, you can see what you assigned; at first, the student may need Spanish, then they may move into English with supports, and eventually all English. #BPOPchat
#BPOPchat#A4 Even if you don't have #Brainpopell you can use the other Brainpops and differentiate and measure the students progress with all the activities. With make a map for example you are evaluating several language skills.
#A6@brainpop is a support tool for both content and language integrated learning (CLIL) and English as a foreign language (EFL) national curriculum. BrainPOP helps my ELLs acquire the language they need to succeed in these academically rigorous settings. #bpopchat#ell
A6: We're an immersion school so not really. However we sometimes find really good videos in Spanish for our History class (History of Mexico) and we'll definitely integrate them in our lessons. #BPOPchat#ELL
