It can be hard to narrow your choices which content to use. This is especially true on sites like YouTube. Before you start, ask yourself this question:

What am I trying to teach or learn? What skill or piece of knowledge do I (or my students) need to know? Be specific!

Got it in mind? What is it? The Bill of Rights? How to find the lowest common denominator? Understanding poetry?

Now use your answer to focus your search through some of my favorite free websites for adult education & GED® Test Preparation. There are literally thousands of videos, tutorials and courses available here, so have fun searching:

YouTube…for Education!

Example: Why does a cat always land on its feet? A physics lesson from Smarter Every Day
