Teaching Success: Shark Tale Movie

If you haven't watched the movie Shark Tale, you might as well. Particularly if you can do so as part of your after school class two weeks before school is out for vacation.

Some common sense tips for 'teaching' 3rd and 4th graders using a movie:
  • Pre-teach vocabulary - especially to ensure your principal will look on you favorably as an English instructor
  • Watch the movie in small parts
  • For low level students use subtitles in English or Korean depending on student need
  • Review vocabulary and parts of the movie throughout the instruction process
  • Guide students in drawing some characters, the setting and a favorite scene of the movie. Advanced students can add a written description of any or all the movie.
  • Enjoy the movie with the students, you'll probably understand the humor and such more than they will anyway ^.^
