I ‘ve recently come across a webpage called “teaching with movies”. Real teaching: language, science, social sciences, writing etc – not just fun and some talking. My pupils – primary school 12 year-olds – have been moaning and asking for a film to watch in class (most of them are asking for Fast and Furious). We probably mean two different things when talking about watching a film in class. I would be glad to try watching a film while the pupils have a worksheet in front of them either one by one or in groups containing , for example, comprehension questions, vocabulary activities, topic for discussion and writing, and so on. There are a few recommended films by age or topic and worksheets on the Internet. I’ll give it a try and get back with results!
PS. Has anyone tried that before? How did it go? Any advice?
