Video-based lessons
« on: May 13, 2016, 04:31:06 pm »
Hi.  My VERY low-level univ. students requested some video-heavy lessons - I think they're burnt out after studying really hard so I want to accommodate them. 

Can you please recommend some video-based lessons which will capture the students' attention and allow for some enjoyment and entertainment, along with educational value?

It's a 4 day/week voluntary class for univ students on top of their studies so they're burnt out.  Please fire away with recommendations or links.  Thanks :)

Hi,

I'm sorry you haven't received replies on time....

www.film-english.com - nice ideas for using short films for discussion, debate etc. You can extend the content to be targeted for your class.

This looks useful for my current adult class as I have them for quite a prolonged period and struggle with keeping them from exhaustion.

Wishing to make things easier for your essay, we picked five arguments for both sides of issue. Feel free to brainstorm ideas and use them in your own essays:

For those who are Pro-Gun Control:

    Increased arms limitation laws will provide government with more restrain over weapon holders in the United States.
    Stricter gun control laws will assure society protection by making it possible to track down potential criminals, based on their personal information provided by purchase.
    Pro-Gun position calls up society to participate in prevention of violence in schools or colleges.
    Reduction laws should change image of weapons in media.
    Gun control laws create more difficult for banned weapons to enter country from abroad.

For those who are against stricter gun control laws:

    Lesser arm limitation will protect both sides of issue by allowing citizens to have privacy.
    Focusing on existing gun control policies will address flaws of current legislation.
    Lesser arms reduction will not force criminals to turn to illegal gun possession more, but will allow law enforcement officers to work within existing medium.
    Stricter laws do not affect number or nature of violence per se.
    Increased arms limitation leads to increased mental and legislative pressure in society that makes weapon possession tracking even more complex.
