A Video Lesson


    Here is a video that I used in one of my CELTA TPs.


We first talked about the holiday they had. Then I told them that we were going to watch a video about running away. I showed some pictures of words that I thought my students did not know. Then we watched the video by paying attention to the order of events. You can watch it twice. Then I gave my students the jumbled sentences of the story and asked them to put in order. Then I have them check the answers together and with the handout I hung beforehand. After that, they made questions and answers about the video. Then to sum up the target grammar they asked some questions to each other by completing the blanks.



Here are the handouts:

The name of the video was Runaway. The boy took a bottle of soda from the bridge. He tried to close the door, but the door didn’t close. The door handle fell down. The boy and the fridge were sad. The fridge saw the magazine in the boy’s hand. The fridge was sad. The boy went out. The fridge ran away.  It walked on the street and saw new fridges at the shop.  The new fridges weren’t its friends because they laughed at it. The boy went home and he didn’t find the fridge. He looked for it. The fridge was in the scrap yard. The fridge wasn’t happy, it was angry. The boy didn’t buy a new fridge. He bought a new door handle. They were very happy.
