Short wordless films provide a perfect medium for targeting higher level language skills in a fun and engaging way. This packet targets prediction and inference making, as well as vocabulary development. Selected vocabulary relates to the emotions and character traits observable in the films, which ties in nicely with pragmatics targets as well. Links to 13 short films are provided, viewable on YouTube*. For each film, a series of questions are outlined on a data-tracking sheet. The data form includes a key to quickly mark the accuracy of student responses and includes room for simultaneous data collection for 4 students. It is always hard to get concentrated trials of higher level language skills, but this packet makes it easy! In total, there are over 200 questions (average of 15.9 questions per video).
*Please note that the links in the packet may change if videos are removed from YouTube. Searching for the film by name typically pulls up another option, however the creator will test links monthly to ensure that they are working and will update the packet as needed.
