Top 10 Videos from Tch’s First Year

Some of my favorite fast facts from 2011-2012:

  • When Teaching Channel officially launched on June 8, 2011 we had 90 videos on our site. Today, we have 476 videos (and counting!) featuring 279 teachers, coaches and other educators.
  • You have watched nearly 3 million minutes worth of effective teaching practices and inspiring lesson ideas.
  • Our video crews have spent hundreds of hours in classrooms in an effort to bring you examples of great teaching. So, you could see what others are doing, and adapt the techniques for your classrooms.
  • Thousands of you have given us feedback on how to make our web site and films better. Thank you, and keep the ideas coming!

I’ve loved watching our video library grow and seeing what you, as teachers, find most useful and inspirational.

The best part of every day for me is reading your thoughtful and encouraging comments.

So, as we look back on our inaugural year, I thought it would be interesting to see which videos are the Top 10 “most watched” of the first 12 months.

It’s an interesting mix that tells us you want to see more on Common Core, quick classroom strategies, and creative ways to bring a bit of fun into your room.

Here’s the list, nominate your favs in the comments below. Here’s to a great second year!
