Not Right For WatchKnowLearn
WatchKnowLearn ratings are intentionally harsher than what you might find on YouTube, for example. Most of our videos have been imported by people who want to use them with kids, not by the creators of the videos. We take a hard-nosed attitude toward quality. Four and five stars should be reserved for really excellent quality. Three stars isn't bad. Two is often watchable and shouldn't be ruled out.

  • 5 stars = Exemplary.
    Unusually helpful and well produced. Do not overuse this, please; it is not the standard rating for decent work, as it is elsewhere.
  • 4 stars = Very Good.
    Very helpful but not among the very best; adequately produced, at least.
  • 3 stars = Usable.
    Reasonably helpful, perhaps a bit amateurish in production or has some other problem; there is nothing wrong with a 3-star rating for amateur work!
  • 2 stars = Some Merit.
    Minimally helpful; not completely worthless or inappropriate; you can see how it might be useful to some people.
  • 1 star = Not Right for WatchKnowLearn.
    Not at all helpful, not educational, poorest quality, etc.; you can't see it being useful to anyone.

From pecentral.com (Approved: porter1526), produced by PECentral
In this video, students from Missouri State University show steps to and perform a dance with a twist to the song "YMCA". The student will be able to execute different locomotor skills and perform the new actions to the "YMCA", while listening to the beat of the music and the words of the song.
Action 1: Y – Stand with feet a little wider than shoulder width apart. Put hands down to the side. This action makes a “Y” if you were looking at it upside down. Your legs making the v-shape while your arms and straight upper body are making the straight portion.
Action 2: M – Stand with feet a little wider than shoulder width apart. Take your right hand (students could use which ever hand they would like to, but to help prevent confusion, tell students to use their right hand), and touch it to the floor in the middle of your legs. This action makes an “M”.
Action 3: C – Bring right leg up and curl to the left, while leaning to the left with your upper body. This action makes a “C”.
Action 4: A – Stand with feet a little wider than shoulder width apart. Take your right arm, (once again it doesn’t matter which arm is used, but in this case to prevent confusion tell students to use their right arm), and place it across your knees (parallel to the floor). This action makes an “A". This is a good resource for teaching rhythmic movement, dance, and team cooperation. A printable lesson plan is also available. (6:12)

  • Unless changed, the Finder is the person who uploaded the video to WatchKnowLearn.
  • The Finder is allowed to "lock" information about the Owner and Producer (so other accounts cannot edit this information). The Finder field should match the Owner field when a video is entered in a contest.
  • As owner of a video, you can have finder rights transferred to you.
Simply click "Request Finder Rights" and an e-mail will be sent to the current Finder of the video. The Finder may then transfer rights to you. If he or she does not, bear in mind that an Administrator will see the refusal of your request and will be able to review it.
