Two classes I taught today were so boring I wanted to leave. Usually I’m running around the classroom, doing crazy things, and making sure that the students are having fun while they learn. However, I’m teaching for a month at a new school and I just haven’t clicked yet with the students.
YouTube is very popular with the students. Since YouTube has some nice content for teaching as does TeacherTube, I thought it might be a good idea to use some of these videos in class. Media resonates with these students.
I need to teach phrasal verbs. I like the following video. It gets the job done and I think my students will enjoy the tone of the presenter.
Some of my students need to learn how to write an essay. Here’s a useful YouTube video that will also exercise my students’ listening abilities.
I’m also teaching To Kill a Mockingbird for a Masters Class. Here are some videos from TeacherTube.
