  • 9. Title Movie clip Brainstorm Create Share 1
  • 10. 1) Give students the title of a movie clip they are about to watch. Handout blank mind map templates that you have prepared, either on hard copy or digitally. Have them brainstorm in groups or pairs. Tell students to imagine what the movie will be about and add words and images to their map to represent the storylines they predict. Then watch the movies as a whole class. Ask students if the real movie was very different from their stories. Watch again and ask students to map the similarities and differences on a new mindmap. Now put students into pairs from different groups. They must compare and contrast their maps and tell each other about the similarities and differences.
  • 11. Story fantasy Movie Topic Keywords 2
  • 12. 2) Follow-up from idea one or stand-alone activity. As a follow –up students write the story of their imaginary movie or even create their own movies using digital technology. As a stand-alone activity, you can give students a topic based on a theme you have in your course book. Give them key words in mind map form for revision and tell them to put these words into a topic-based story or their own movie.
  • 13. Mind map Present Teams Guessing games Yes/no 3
  • 14. 3) Follow-up to idea two or else as a stand-alone activity. Students create their stories or movies at home. Then they create mindmaps of their movies for class. In class each student or pair/group presents the mindmaps to the class. Divide the class into teams. The class have to guess what the story or movie is about based on the map, asking only yes/no questions. The map should be large enough for everyone to see or else on an o overhead projecter/or in digital format.
  • 15. Read Listen Map Storytelling Design Display 4
  • 16. 4) Alternative follow-up to three or stand-alone activity Students create movies. They write the story of the movie at home. Next day they read out their stories to the class. In this case there are no visual aids, so it’s essentially a listening activity. Students listen and map the story. Have map templates handy so as not to waste time. They just add keywords to their maps. Afterwards get students to retell the stories to each other and compare with the original. Then they can watch the short movie. Finally, they can embellish/design their maps with images and display around the class, keep in special project folders or display online through blogs etc.
  • 17. Focus Parts Characters Parts of speech feelings/mood appearance 5
  • 18. 6) Alternatives to idea five. Instead of letting student just map anything they want, ask them to focus on particular parts of the story. For example: Ask them to mind map the characters as they imagine their characteristics and appearance. Ask them to mind map only nouns, verbs, events. Alternative, divide them into teams. Each team has a separate focus, some map the events, others the ideas, other the verbs, others different parts or speech, others map the feelings or mood.

Example of grammar to practice: should/shouldn’t have Hand out mind map templates with lexical branches (and/or images) and should/shouldn’t along the branches. Students watch the movie and write down what Mr. Bean should/shouldn’t have done. What others ideas can you come up with?

  • 24. 8) Jumbled words Give students sets of jumbled words in groups. Tell them to arrange the words onto a mind map and then act out their stories for the class. Then show everyone the real movie –clip and tell them to map the true story
  • 25. Impressions feelings Sharing /chatting 9
