Encourage Literacy & Critical Thinking 

Accompanying every BrainPOP topic are resources to support and enhance understanding of the content while simultaneously building reading comprehension, writing, and critical thinking skills:

  • Related Reading: High-interest, informational texts extend understanding of the associated topic and support key reading strategies. 
  • Challenge: Playful, interactive tasks engage higher-order thinking skills while seamlessly assessing understanding. 
  • Primary Source: First-hand artifacts—from journals to recordings—prompt examination, analysis, and interpretation.

The digital nature of BrainPOP makes it a perfect solution for distance learning while your students are home. Here are some ideas for engaging and keeping them on track:
