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 YouTube (Approved: porter1526), produced by 60 Second Recap Series
 
In this video, teenage students will be introduced to "What Comes After" by Steve Watkins. Iris Wight has it rough. Her father's dead. Her best friend's family has decided they can't keep her. Alone and hurting, Iris ends up at horrible Aunt Sue's where her only solace is the goats ... and even those, Iris discovers, can be taken from her in an instant. The first half of "What Comes After" is a particularly tough read, but Iris is a compelling protagonist whose falling-apart life still has moments of pure beauty—and welcome humor. You won't be able to put this book down until you're sure that Iris has found her way—which, through sheer determination (and some unexpected allies) Iris actually does. This is a great resource to motivate upper grade readers. (1:20)
