Engaging students in Secondary English classrooms through the use of pop culture videos


Welcome to the wiki! Here you'll find scholarly research supporting the use of popular culture videos as an engagement tool in English/Language Arts classes with a concentration on Secondary English subjects. The Review of Literature page takes a specific look at the existing body of research that supports popular culture as an engagement tool. I have also included ideas for lessons in the Practical Application & Reflections page that I have attempted using this research, on videos in particular, in my student teaching placement. The Implications & Significance page offers an overall view of what teachers can take away from this research to the classroom.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know!
