12:45-2:15 What is Movie Talk?
Dustin Williamson – Spanish / French teacher – Leavitt area High School
MovieTalk is a C.I. (Comprehensible Input) friendly tool that uses movies, commercials, music videos and animation in your classroom. Students acquire listening skills as they enjoy watching target-culture laden videos and listen to a teacher’s narration of the visual. MovieTalk is the deceptively simple tool you need to be able to turn videos into comprehensible input. You’ll never watch a movie the same way again!
