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, produced by Philip Scott Johnson
A montage of paintings of women's faces, each fading from one to the next, covering painting styles from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. A very creative video, featuring Bach's Sarabande from Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G Major, BWV 1007 performed by Yo-Yo Ma (2:52)
Ages: 9 - 18 License: Proprietary Owner: Philip Scott Johnson Found by LarrySanger
  • 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.

Kathy, do you mean that you just recently used it, or you used it before you saw it on WatchKnow?

I used this with my 4th grade art students, and they absolutely loved it. It prompted a lot of discussion about people, places, and things they'd never contemplated. I work with urban, economically disadvantaged children who had never seen any of these paintings or people except for my art class. They felt connected when they saw it.

Well, I'm no art teacher and have never taught art (apart from being a grader in Aesthetics), but it can be used to illustrate how styles change. I can imagine an art teacher, after reviewing art history, might have students call out different art styles as they go through. Renaissance! Rococo! Classical! Romantic! Impressionist! Cubist!

Really cool, but as a teacher, I'm trying to figure out how I would use this in a lesson. But seriously, really cool.

Wonderful. And would be really tremendous if the video froze for a couple of seconds at the end of each morph.
