Using Videos as Material for Stories

These videos can be used to provide material for a story. The best part about them is that there is little to no language in them, so teachers of any language can use them! Cynthia Hitz originally explained how she used the video “Alma” in a TPRS fashion, and Ruth suggested using the video “La Dama y la Muerte” in a similar way at Halloweeen. I am definitely going to check out these videos and see what I can come up with for my French classes! They have recently started complaining that we “do stories every day”. Maybe this will help us to change things up a bit.
