FilmArobics - give your movies a workout

Activities, vocab, notes and comprehension questions

Pick the language you are teaching, browse the featured films, and order a lesson package. ($29.95) Each film is broken into 10 to 15 minute segments. The teacher can show the segment and use the activities, vocab lists, cultural notes and comprehension questions that come with the package.

"FilmArobics started in 1994 as a challenge to two teachers who received a French film without subtitles, "Cyrano de Bergerac." Judy Sugarman and Nan Ward broke up the movie into 10-15 minute segments so they fit into class periods and created plans that addressed all learning styles."
