School of TEFL

Media listening is a big part of education these days. In my two lessons we will look at

A) Using current events in the classroom and specifically a site, Breaking News English
We will discuss various methodologies for using the news in the classroom and also
look at WHY we should use current events in our classrooms. We will also test our
own current events knowledge!!!

B) Media awareness/literacy. How aware are you of how the media operates and
influences our behavious. We will watch commercials and analyze them for basic
principles of media awareness. We will make/perform our own commercials and
do activities which will help us see how power the hold of the media can be! What
is the difference between fact and opinion? Why do advertisers do to make us
buy? We will watch a video that can answer many of these questions.
The links for the sites covered in current events are:

BreakingnewsEnglish
CNN Student News
BBC Newsround
Here are some of the news videos I have made and use in the classroom. Also, some of the materials we will use in our course.
