Like YouTube for all subject areas- but better than YouTube because it gives you the citations for your 'Works Cited' page and you can use the 'transcript' button to read or copy/paste from a text transcription of the video you are watching. YouTube can't do that! Subjects include Business and Economics, Social Studies, Health and Nutrition, Literature and Language Arts, Science and Mathematics, Family and Guidance, Visual and Performing Arts, and Archival Films and Newsreels.
