USING MOVIES/ VIDEOS in CLASS

 

1.    SILENT VIEWING

  • Keep the sound off and let the Ss watch the movie silently for a few minutes.
  • Ask the Ss to describe what they watched
  • Make them dub/give a name a short part of the movie after watching once.
  • Keep this activity shorter as your students may get bored

 

2.    FREEZE FRAME

  • Freeze the frame after a phrase, word, idiom or any topic you’ve recently learned or the points you want to draw your Ss attention on.
  • Freeze and ask questions about the location of a person or an object to practice prepositions or places (in front of the station, on the table)
  • Freeze the frame for practicing new vocabulary (vocabulary about kitchen, street, car).
  • Ask questions such as ‘of these 10 words which ones can you see?’

 

3.    ROLE-PLAY

  • Make Ss act the hottest or the most dramatic part of the movie (individually, in pairs or in groups).
  • Make some alterations, for instance change the gender, role, location.

 

4.    BEHAVIOR STUDY-CULTURE COMPARISON

  • Give your Ss chance to compare their culture, life-style with others’
  • Ask them to find out 3-5 inter-cultural similarities and contrasts.

 

5. PREDICTION

  • Ask your students to predict the next sequence of the movie (What’s going to happen next?)

 

6. THINKING AND FEELING

  • Draw your Ss’ attentions on the emotions of the actors.(‘How can you describe the feelings of the child?’)
  • It’s appropriate for practicing emotion words (angry, irritated, hopeful, worried, happy, scared)

 

7. SOUND ONLY

  • Darken the screen and make your students just listen the sound of the movie
  • Ask Ss about the speaker’s appearance and character (describe the person from the voice)
  • Make them guess what’s going on in the movie.

 

8. WATCHERS-LISTENERS

  • Pair your Ss and make just one group watch the movie and make the watchers tell the movie to listeners.
  • It’s appropriate for practicing some grammar points such as tenses (now he’s running out to the street, he’s falling down, the police are arresting him)

9. TELLING THE STORY

  • Leave a gap in the movie and make Ss guess what happened in that part.
  • Write down 3-5 sentences about the movie randomly and make Ss put these sentences in an order.

 

10. UPDATING THE STORY

  • Ask Ss relate the story with daily incidents by asking up-to date
