Ever heard of Movie Talk? Well, it's amazing! Ever felt just blah with the ol' textbook, worksheets, and same ol' ol'? Ever said "There is ONLY so much you can do in Spanish 1 and 2?"
If you have caught yourself saying this...you will LOVE Movie Talk!
Movie Talk is simply showing a movie clip, learning some new material, leading the students through the movie, and getting some real life practice with the language...and yes, ANY language & level can do it!
This Movie Talk goes with the trailer of Monster House and is taught in a Spanish classroom, movie trailer you tube link:
It breaks down the vocabulary little by little and then introduces more in-depth grammar topics.
The kids loved it and my kids that are really really advanced felt like I taught to their level. Many of them are in Spanish 2 and are creating Spanish 3 concepts.
One of my "struggler" kids walked by the other Spanish teacher spoke in conversation of a more difficult grammar topic after doing this in class...they were amazed, and wondered where he learned this from!
This could be the key to a real life immersion classroom.
If you're wanting to try it, check out this Movie Talk Package that comes with the vocabulary & lesson.
Also, feel free to check out my blog:
