You will also find an oral presentation project to get the students to acquire additional knowledge about the U.S. Civil Rights Movement. This way the movie becomes an excellent pre-activity to a broader learning opportunity for students. Note: My personal way of using the oral presentation project is that I get students in pairs to work on the project and present to the rest of the class. I ask students to take notes because afterwards I give them a quiz on everything which was presented… not necessarily for a final “official” grade but a final “unofficial” assessment of who has acquired the most knowledge… students love the challenge of trying to beat their classmates and no stress about it showing up on their report card… I usually give a few bonus points to my first three pairs who got the most correct answers on the final quiz.

Listening Comprehensions - Anne with an E (season 1 bundle)

Listening Comprehensions - Anne with an E (season 1 bundle)

*** answer keys included This is a listening comprehension bundle which includes listening comprehensions for the first six episodes of the Netflix series Anne with an E (also titled Anne on CBC). This series is based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic novel, Anne of Green Gables. It is considered a classic of Canadian literature and this series allows the viewers to get a new glimpse inside Anne’s world. The document is already formatted so you only have to print the needed pages and makes copies. As always, the document also includes the answer keys. Finally, I have also included a writing journal for each episode to be completed by students either at school or at home. It provides students with an opportunity to reinvest their understanding of the episode and of the series. This Netflix/CBC series steps inside a small rural village at the turn of the twentieth century. It provides a glimpse at how life was in those days. This series can also be the starting point to a wider group or class discussion about the changes that have taken place in society over the last century, along with its causes and consequences. I have created listening comprehensions for other episodes of the series. The difficulty level of the listening comprehensions 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.
