    I'm an ESL instructor at City College of San Francisco. I received my master’s degree in English from San Francisco State University. As a curriculum developer for the KQED Education Network, I have developed ESOL lessons on a variety of topics based on KQED/PBS television productions, and these lesson plans have been published by KQED Education Network online and in booklets. I am honored to have the chance to co-moderate for the EVO Video 2009 session with such a wonderful team.

    ...
    Hi All, If you'd like to make a short video that can be used to review/practice grammar points, etc, please add it here. Perhaps by the end of the session we'll have 10 or 15 activities that we can combine for a DVD, and make the file available for download (you can download the file and burn the DVD on your computer so country codes won't be a problem). You don't have to follow the format below. Again, the goal of this particular page of the wiki is to pull together the teacher produced video activities of the session and make them available for everyone to use if they'd like. Cheers :) Ryan
    Notes: To make this I used google images to find photos illustrating these emotions. I use a Mac, so when I had the photos I put them in an iPhoto album and "played" it -- the software automatically adds music and motion (Ken Burns effect). I then used a screen capture software (iShowU, Captivate, Camtasia) to record the playing of the album, trimmed the beginning and ending with video editing software, and uploaded to blip.tv. PS I didn't select that particular thumbnail image :)

    Activity: Emotions
    Skill Level: Beginning
    Grammar: Present Tense, Adjectives, Participial Adjectives
    ...
    Introduce the grammar/vocabulary (to look: tired, bored, frustrated, excited, sad, angry, surprised, confused, thirsty, happy)
    Practice with pictures

    role play
    Quiz with teacher produced video
    Video Quiz Procedure: Write the following fill-in-the-blank structures on the board. Play the video, and pause at each picture. Ask the students to write the complete sentences.

    Dances from the Depths http://ocean.edublogs.org
    I was filming the species through the glass panes at the aquarium of California Academy of Sciences by using the video function of my tiny digital camera. For each of the videos, I also created interactive comprehension check and basic vocabulary exercises (on colors & prepositions) for ESL learners at the beginning level: The Flamboyant Greek SoloistThe Dancer in Fancy Costume, and The Dancer in Stripes These exercises can be done after they watch this videos. I used proprof.com to create these exercises.

    I was trying out the animation creator Xtranormal and really liked the many features it offers: There are many backgrounds, characters, voices in many languages, even music and sound effects to choose from. This animation creator also allows you to edit your movies anytime.
