  3. 3. # 1 Keep it Short!
  4. 4. # 1 Keep it Short! <ul><li>Yes – no more than 3-5 minute segments. </li></ul><ul><li>Then, do an activity to compliment the input. </li></ul><ul><li>Putting a video on for long periods of time is not learning and not “mind-full-ness”. </li></ul><ul><li>Video should be the “punch” not the whole party! </li></ul>
  5. 5. # 2 Turn off the sound!
  6. 6. # 2 Turn off the sound! <ul><li>Video is as much a “prompt” as an “input”. </li></ul><ul><li>Turn off the sound and get students to describe the actions. </li></ul><ul><li>This is a great way to foster language production and practicing either the past or present continuous tenses. </li></ul>
  7. 7. # 3 Add Subtitles!
