Because video can provide a break from the textbook routine and a novel approach to language learning, teachers can take advantage of the benefits behind the use of video in a language classroom to promote both teaching and learning. The number of ways in which video can be used in class to enhance learning is unlimited provided the teacher exploits at its full. One way to exploit fully a video segment and implement effective teaching strategies in developing writing is the use of graphic organizers (GOs). The use of GOs in writing helps learners approach a writing text in a metacognitive way since they are focusing on what they are doing and on how they are going to organize and recall information provided by a visual input to be transferred into written output. In implementing video and GOs in a writing class, learners are aware of how their paragraph will be structured (cause and effect, comparison and contrast, classification, problem and solution, for and against, procedure and sequence, definition).
