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. 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.

What teens are thankful for Overview This lesson is designed around a short video commissioned by the Greater Good Science Center and the theme of gratitude. In this lesson students talk about what they are grateful for, watch a video in which high students read a letter of gratitude to another person and write their own letters of gratitude. Step 1 Write ‘grateful’ on the board. Elicit or explain the meaning. You may like to give a definition such as ‘feeling or showing thanks’ or ‘feeling that you want to thank someone because they have given you something or have done something for you’.

Vocabulary menu handout Do you like vocabulary cards as much as I do? I routinely use Quizlet online and in printouts, good old paper cards, vocabulary organisers – but sometimes I want to do something new (preferably low-prep, paperless, engaging, student-centered and of course effective – well, never settle for anything less :)). Here’s what worked in one of my lessons yesterday: a simple menu of activities that students can do in small groups. It can be as fast or as slow as you like, and it leaves you free to monitor and make notes of which words need more practice. It worked so well that I couldn’t resist and had to put it into a handout/poster that you can download and use here. Free Bingo Board Maker, bingo board templates with images or text, customizable bingo boards to print for preschool, kindergarten teachers, elementary school teachers and language teachers to make resources for lessons, lesson plans and K-6 printable materials for classes.

You can select the image you want to use and type in any text you'd like.

Irish Song Lyrics - Red Is the Rose Author: words:Tommy Makem melody Loch Loman R. Burns CHORUS Red is the rose that in yonder garden grows, And fair is the lily of the valley; Clear is the water that flows from the Boyne But my love is fairer than any. Come over the hills, my bonny Irish lass Comer over the hills to your darling; You choose the rose, love, and I'll make the vow And I'll be your true love forever. 'Twas down by Killarney's green woods that we strayed And the moon and the stars they were shining; The moon shone its rays on her locks of golden hair And she swore she'd be my love forever. It's not for the parting tht my sister pains It's not for the grief of my mother, "Tis all for the loss of my bonny Irish lass That my heart is breaking forever.
