I previously had a YOUTUBE account and it was banned because of copyright infringement. I filed a counter claim because of the ideas that were in question were not copyright violations. Either way, i lost the argument after filing all the necessary paper work and all of my videos were lost. A lesson was gained or learned though, in the process. Make sure every bit of video, whether song or words, that come from any place else, is documented. Done deal.
I went to other video websites such as teacher tube and school tube in search of clips that i could use for my classroom. My English class is more than just reading and writing. I expect that my students learn real life applications. I expect my students to learn about their own innocence and how their decisions affect more than just themselves. Hopefully this will help them to understand life a bit more clearly.
Here are a couple of videos that could be used in class.
