Listening Comprehensions - 13 Reasons Why (season 1 bundle)

Listening Comprehensions - 13 Reasons Why (season 1 bundle)

*** answer keys includedThis bundle includes six listening comprehensions, one for each of the first six episodes of the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. Each episode also includes a writing journal.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.I know there have been many debates around this TV series and whether or not it should be watched by teenagers. We could discuss this until we are blue in the face and the chances of coming to a unanimous consensus are infitestimal, the fact of the matter is that teenagers are already watching it. Therefore, it is our duty as educators to be proactive and to provide a supervized venting outlet. Personally, I enjoyed watching this series. This series is excellent, and I would even dare to say better than the book as I find the characters better developed. Even though, like the book, the TV series discusses suicide, the TV series allows for additional discussions as each episode adds characters and therefore secondary storylines. 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, ... Plus, it raises awareness.The difficulty level of each listening comprehension progresses as the series advances. It is therefore perfect to assess the progression of a student's learning.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.
