"In the last decade cutting-edge techniques have radically transformed planet hunting. Against a background of frenetic discovery, an elite band of scientists are looking for something new: alien civilisations."

 

"If it's ever going to happen, it'll happen before the mid-part of this century." As part of a global team searching for signals from E.T., Dr Seth Shostak is on the front-line of a dynamic field of research. And though a breakthrough remains elusive, the team remains optimistic that the universe is big enough for the truth to still be out there - according to head astronomer Dr. Jill Tarter, "It would be an awful waste of space if we are all there is."

 

Journeyman pictures makes intelligent and well-documented documentaries.

Many of their trailers can be used for lesson plans

Good documentary. Clear dictions, lively intonations.
the transcript makes it a great resource for various levels of listening & reading comprehension. The script isn't too difficult ( French standards:B1) A summary + some video extracts could easily be made for A2. Could make a great lesson plan.

Veritable Invasion or Veritable Wonder? Lessons around Brood II 17-Year Cicadas

Veritable Invasion or Veritable Wonder? Lessons around Brood II 17-Year Cicadas | Brainfriendly motivating comprehension resources for ESL EFL learners | Scoop.it

LOTS  of great links and teaching resources about a wildlife wonder which may start entomologists and biologists vocations.

 

Also,  Among the resources listed, :

https://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/02/opinion/here-comes-the-cicadas-buzz.html?_r=1&

 

 "Over the next few weeks, as soil temperatures reach a sustained temperature of 64 degrees, cicadas from Connecticut to North Carolina will emerge from their subterranean world for the first time since they burrowed underground as nymphs in 1996, returning in numbers that dwarf those other spectacles. The buzzing of males will be heard in a mating ritual that stretches back to at least the ice age. Then, within six weeks, they will all be dead, hundreds of millions, if not billions, of them, and their progeny will not be seen until 2030.

 

These are the Brood II cicadas, one of the longest living insects in the world, seen only once every 17 years along the East Coast........."

 

And also check the fascinating video A2, B1 pre-intermediate, intermediate and over:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/may/10/cicadas-17-year-swarm-new-jersey

The exceptional documentary ( no commentaries)

http://youtu.be/ICDdTBgqYt0

 

-- this interesting New York Times article https://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/02/opinion/here-comes-the-cicadas-buzz.html?_r=1&

 

There is an OFFICIAL WEBSITE (A MUST VISIT) (www.magicicada.org) devoted to the magicicada Brood II.

Check the links & teaching resources.
