Teach with Movies is now free!

Teach with Movies is now free! | Listening activities for English language learners | Scoop.it

"TeachWithMovies offers access to more than 350 lesson plans and learning guides for movies and films.

I’ve long been a big fan of reading and studying movies. I’ve been a fan of this site’s rich curricular materials for many years.

I just discovered that I do not need to re-subscribe.

The site is now available for free (though it will now host unobtrusive advertising and encourage voluntary donations)."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 22, 2013 8:56 PM

This site is new to me but it looks like a great resource and Joyce Valenza has an in-depth post that shares many great features. It is easy to search for movies - alphabetically, age, subject and more. The learning guides include "Learning guides include a description, rationale for using the film, student learning objectives, potential problems for using the film, discussion questions, and assignment and assessment ideas, social-emotional learning discussion questions, bridges to reading, web links, selected awards, cast and director information, and bibliographies."

Do you use movies in your clasroom or are you interested in using them? If so check out this post.

Meryl van der Merwe's curator insight, November 3, 2013 3:12 PM

This is good news!! Movies are a great way to engage the current generation and having this resource free is fantastic.
