Class Before Christmas

December 22, 2011 at 16:29 (Uncategorized)

Nightmare Before Christmas was a great success this morning in class.  I knew at least half the students would enjoy it but I didn’t expect them all to enjoy it as much as they did.  The cat siren pulled the most laughs and an exclamation of ‘cool’.  The movies at the one campus are terribly grim – Hotel Rwanda, Yesterday.  The one student said he preferred grammar to such depressing movies.  I had to agree.

With tomorrow being the last day before the long Christmas weekend, I’m thinking I might do something different from the usual coursebook material.  Something a little more communicative, I think.  Yesterday I used the Kingdom Hearts story [greatly simplified] for journeys and traveling, and making life decisions along the way.  Two students thought Sora was a girl and one thought Riku was the antagonist.  All agreed that their shoes were crazy big.
