One of the best lessons you can do for your students is to create a video for them from scratch. It’s a lot of work, but if you do it right, you will have an engaging and unforgettable lesson! I do quite a few of these kinds of video lessons and so I thought it would be a good idea to post one of them on the blog. Here is an example of one of my favorite video lessons. In this lesson I introduced my students to other teachers in their area via a fun video where each ALT answered some simple interview questions. Students watched the video and filled in the following chart:
1. Discussion: (5 min)
1) Did you have an ALT in junior
2) What do you like about ALT
3) What did you learn from your
2. Preparation : (10 min.)
1) Read the interview questions
2) Review words, brainstorm
