Film Presentation Techniques.
Alberta Modern Language Journal, v14 n3 p38-45 Spr 1976
This article discusses three types of films and their use in the second language classroom. The description film is objective and static, and elicits adjectives and adverbs. This kind of film should be presented three times, each time followed by a different set of learning exercises. The culture film - characterized by descriptions, scenes from daily life, and value systems - is subjective in nature and uses nouns, verbs, modifiers, comparison structures, and the subjunctive mood. This type of film should be presented in its entirety and followed by discussion of the sociological elements communicated in the film. The action film uses language that students do not always understand. Therefore, it should be interrupted often for discussion and summary. These films are used most effectively in advanced classes.
