A Film Log for Teachers

A very simple, but useful, idea is to keep up a list of films and its possible uses on a blog. This way, teachers can share their ideas for using different films for different reasons.

One example of a good reference for a movie is, as follows:

E.T. The Extra Terrestrial

Reasons besides being a good movie for whole film response activities

1) Language (scenes 7, 8 and 10)
2) Subtext (scenes 7 and 12)
3) Culture (scenes 12 and 13)
4) Roleplay (scenes 9 and 10)

You can, instead, list the above purposes for using films and relate the appropriate films and scenes below the category's name.

Language Use

1) E.T. - scenes 7, 8 and 10


1) E.T. - scenes 7 and 12
2) Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - scene 1

And so on. Both ways you can share valuable information about movies you and your colleagues have used well in the Language Classroom.
