ClickView can support you with resources to help you implement metacognitive strategies and other teaching strategies into your middle school social studies classroom. Explore content on the topic of critical thinking to encourage skill development. Discussion-based activities in teacher resources also promote active inquiry in students.
Social studies videos to deepen understanding
Targeted video content is ideal for teaching social studies topics. Go one step further and add an interactive layer to any video in the ClickView library. By incorporating questions into a video for intermittent feedback, students can reflect critically on their learning during a topic or unit. Interactives can be used for formative assessment, providing you with valuable information about how your students are progressing. They can also be used for in-classroom teaching or also for home study and test prep. Show an existing interactive clip from the library or make your own! Learn more about interactive videos
