Video in the Irish Language Classroom.
Stenson, Nancy
TEANGA: The Irish Yearbook of Applied Linguistics, n16 p107-19 1996
Efforts to incorporate video-based exercises into a first-year Irish second language course at the University of Minnesota are reported and illustrated. Sample activities using sound and word recognition, matching, listening, completion, and creation techniques are outlined. Videotape recordings are first played without sound to introduce students to the physical aspects of the cultural setting and to provide a stimulus for vocabulary being learned. Listening practice, observation, and discussion follow. Considerations in creating homemade videotapes, selecting commercially designed materials, and managing the use of these materials in class are discussed, and the instructional potential in student development of videos is examined. Three appendices contain worksheets in Irish. (MSE)
