Using "Off-Air" Television Broadcasts from Non-U.S. Sources--Some Practical Suggestions.
Olivier, Louis A.
Authentic video documents produced for an audience of native speakers can provide a valuable complement to traditional teaching materials. Foreign language teachers will find the task of choosing materials both enriching and less demanding by working in teams. Practical ways the teacher can use "off-air" materials more effectively are suggested, including information about how to select excerpts, operate playback equipment, and create lesson units. Two specific uses of off-air video are given as examples: a one-hour class based on a commercial and a week-long unit using an eight-minute excerpt from a French-Canadian documentary. (Author/MSE)
