YouTube.com/Teachers was created to help teachers use educational YouTube videos to educate, engage and inspire their students. We know how busy teachers can be so we've worked with a group of teachers to put together playlists of partner videos that align with common core standards.

I like to show the students local artists who are creating every day. Youtube is a great place to find this information!
I have a lot of favorite clips that the students really connect to. One that stands out that is memorable for many students is titled, Similes and Metaphors in songs. A student in the video clip relays information to my students, making the whole process casual and relatable, while referencing lyrics in popular songs and explaining how they are similes or metaphors and help the students interpret the meanings.
I also feel comfortable allowing the students to browse the site during recess, and often times they come up to me and share something cool that they came across and ask if I can use it in one of our upcoming lessons!
This is also more practical to use to my students in English because they are able to listen to more proper English intonations and pronunciations even if it's not our teaching hours as well as to my Science students wherein they can definitely capture the difficult concepts right away through the creative video contents in Science. I recommend this to all.
I was skeptical that I would find anything useful. I was wrong. Every physics concept I searched had at least 10 relevant hits, and two decent videos (though they were mostly lecture). Check it out for sure.
