Its my end of semester class next week and I wanted the students to watch something but the lesson is only 50 minutes long. I feel like a bit of a cheat just showing them 50 minutes of a film - I would find that frustrating if it were me and I was enjoying it, to only see half of a film.So being British I had decided on playing Wallace and Gromit a close shave as its 30 minutes long and has time for discussion afterwards. I teach grade 1 at an all girls high school.Has anyone tried Wallace and Gromit and if so what was the reaction? Im concerned my students wont get it or will find it boring/too young.Any suggestions for something to fit in a 50 minute class would be great please!If not then I'll give it a whirl on Monday and let you all know how it goes.
This year I am planning to show Despicable Me to first graders and then Stardust to second graders.
Has anyone tried Mean Girls? I have an English Club group that has 13 girls and 1 boy, and I think they might like it. However, the Koreans and the male coach in the movie aren't portrayed in a very good light. As an overweight white male, I'm a little concerned how that might go over...
So the Ss "learn" to disassociate and focus only on Korean.
