3 Amazing Videos to Raise Awareness and Get Your Learners Talking! - DreamreaderDreamreader

It was very well received so I thought I would do another post about videos. Click here if you haven’t read that post. Today I have chosen three more of my favorite videos that I show to inform my learners. All these videos got a fantastic response, so I hope you will find them useful. I teach at a university in Japan, and I considered all three to be suitable for adults. The DNA Journey – Momondo The first is a video I came across quite recently and it has a very powerful message. My classes really enjoyed this one. Maya Angelou—Love liberates “I am grateful to have been loved and to be loved now…be able to love now because that liberates…love liberates”. I had to play this video a few times to my learners. Look up This is a powerful video for raising awareness about over use of social media and communication technology.

I hope you enjoyed these three videos. The Seven Best Short Films for ELT Students - Kieran Donaghy. I’ve been writing lesson plans designed around short films for my website Film English for six years.

The Seven Best Short Films for ELT Students - Kieran Donaghy

Teachers often ask me how I find the short films I use in my lesson plans. The answer is quite simple: I’ve watched literally thousands of short films and developed an instinct for the type of engaging and simple short films which will work in the ELT classroom. In this article I’d like to share what for me are the seven best short films for the language classroom. The Mirror The Mirror is a short film by Ramon and Pedro which tells the story of a boy’s journey from childhood to old age. The Notebook The notebook is a moving short film by Greg Gray and is wonderful for introducing the theme of empathy.

The Present The Present is a gripping short film with a wonderful twist by Jacob Frey which deals with the themes of empathy, teenagers and disablity. The Present from Jacob Frey on Vimeo. Top 50 Writing Blogs for 2015. Today I have the honor of announcing the Top 50 Writing Blogs for 2015!

Top 50 Writing Blogs for 2015

It’s hard to believe an entire year has passed and yet, here we are with a new list of awesome blogs, and we’ve expanded it from the Top 25 to the Top 50. How cool is that? The best-of-the-best are chosen for: 1} quality of content, 2} how routinely they are updated, 3} the amount of reader engagement (comments and social media shares, etc.), and 4} how long the blogs kept me glued to them. Compiling the Top 50 Writing Blogs has allowed me to discover so many quality blogs I might have never found otherwise and for that I am beyond grateful. However, I must confess there were so many outstanding blogs to choose from that it became extremely difficult to limit the list to a mere 50.

You will notice a few sites made the list that are not 100% about writing, but they are 100% relevant to writers and will not only help you improve your writing, they will also provide you with outstanding tips on how to promote your work.
