    Quick questions-how big of a green screen do you use and do you use equipment to hold it up? Trying to do this on a single mom/teacher budget…

    Help please!!!! Hi, I`m a Mexican teacher who teaches Literature in English, to Mexican middle school students. I was wondering if you might have a tip for teaching them the Illiad online during this quarantine, they really hate reading an I really want to make it fun for them. I already downloaded videos and made power point presentations. I don`t know what else can I do, I don`t see them involved and participating at all.

    For learning new things on my own:
    I wrote 5 to 7 things down that are on my solid " Dopamine Scale "
    Take a dice and go for 1 or two for every day.
    When I binge watch history or psychology ( any subject , new or geek red already …)
    this helps me to " charge my batteries ".
    Your clip is the bomb, man ! You got this ,
    More power to you, Sir .

    I've had a lot of success with about 60 of my Seniors… (vs my regular # of about 100 – not to mention 28 Sophomores).
    Unfortunately, my school district told our students that nothing would be graded after the date of March 13. That's resulted in a massive amount of disengagement – despite the fact that we're expected to continue "offering lessons".

    I'm reading more. I'm updating my Seniors-only IG page daily. I'm considering becoming a Google Certified classroom educator (although I'm not sure it's worth it). I'm also planning a more efficient 2020-2021 school year. Dig the green screen idea.

    I started filming YouTube videos to give my students with their week workload, we'll see if it gets them more engaged 😉

    I'm loving the growth mindset. Make the most of each time, day and moment. My family and I are praying more, I've been reading more, and learning education tech.

    CJ! I love how you always stay positive through everything and how you encourage us to do the same. I will definitely experiment with iMovie!

    Do you have a stand for your green screen or is it possible to nail/tape it up on a wall? Please link the green screen and rode mic you use. There are too many on Amazon and I'm not sure which quality I actually need to make videos that look like yours. Thank you and keep up the inspiration for your students and us teachers!

    I would record mine on my computer since it's easier to edit the videos. What program(s) do you recommend for those without an iPhone or Mac?

    Hey Reynolds- question: I'm used to planning the night before, and spitballing when I go in. Now my kids want stuff for the week so they can work on it slowly and time it whenever they're free- But it takes me longer than one weekend to plan a full week's work. What do?

    Wait! What? Is there any way I can get the steps and apps for how to do the green screen stuff? I would love to learn! I need dinosaurs behind me!

    Thank you for making this video. I work for an after-school program and we are currently putting together content for a youtube channel to stay connected with students. I'm leading the literacy group, which has me a bit nervous because how do you digitize literacy and make it fun? I think I'll pitch your suggestions with the team about playing with backgrounds and characters.
