War Horse Study Pack

War Horse Study Pack

I have created a short booklet that breaks the film of War Horse into 20 minute blocks. Each twenty minutes has a sheet to go with it and they are arranged sequentially in a booklet. Each section of the film students are asked to identify any new characters, settings and the story so far.... There are also 3 visual questions about the section of the film. My students found this to be very helpful in following the storyline, and understanding the sequence of the film.The second item in this pack is a powerpoint that looks at the novel of war horse. It breaks down setting, characters, plot and theme. There are some embedded activities but it is a wonderful resource to have as an accompaniment to the film.

Listening Comprehension - Gilmore Girls (season 1 bundle)

Listening Comprehension - Gilmore Girls (season 1 bundle)

*** answer keys includedThese are listening comprehensions for the episodes 1 to 6 of the first season of the TV show Gilmore Girls. Formatting and the answer key will make your life easier. Simply print and make copies. I also included a writing journal (opinion question related to the episode watched), which can be completed at school or as homework.This is a wonderful TV show to get the students to discuss issues related to their everyday life such as peer pressure, family unit, friendship, ...You will see the students will want to watch the show on their own afterwards!!! And since there are many seasons available, this show provides a unique learning opportunity for students.It is also possible to get each episode individually. However, this bundle makes it possible to assess the progression of a student's learning since each comprehension has a higher level of difficulty than the previous one. Notes from my past experiences and my applied linguistics studies if this evaluation is intended for ESL/EFL learners:* Linguistics and language acquisition studies show that active listening, such as completing a listening comprehension evaluation, benefits ESL learners much more than passive listening. It gives their listening a purpose and focuses students on trying to figure out the words and meaning.* According to language learning studies, the use of authentic material (meant for first language) provides more benefits than adapted material.* If possible, do not use subtitles when presenting a TV show or movie. My experience has shown me that students focus too much on reading the subtitles instead of trying to listen for understanding. Students may feel overwhelmed the first time but they will gain in confidence over time.* If there is a possibility, try to have each student watch and answer the listening comprehension individually. Provide them with a time frame as to when they must have completed the evaluation and returned it to the teacher. This way you are certain to evaluate their listening skills and not their abilities to listen and write all at once. It also helps students with learning difficulties.
