Hi Ben –
If you think others would be interested and could benefit…
I recently uploaded a 6th grade MovieTalk class to YouTube and added it to my playlist of TCI instruction:
First, I had to establish meaning and give out student jobs. The “MovieTalk” part starts at minute 10:30. The description below the video on the YouTube page has a bit of info on the students.
Find the video clip used for the MovieTalk here:
This clip is so compelling that most of the CI is about the events in the video. There are moments of PQA embedded throughout the class. I use a lot of gestures both to improve comprehensibility and to scaffold their output.
I think I started the video with more narration, but as the video progresses I ask more and more questions.
The clip is so repetitive that reps take care of themselves.
