Guardian videos


MEC Product Trainer, Sarah Milligan, writes:


If you’re a regular reader of this blog you may remember I posted an entry on Guardian pictures. This time I’d like to introduce to you to Guardian videos.

You can find a large selection of videos by going to the Guardian website, scrolling down and clicking on ‘videos’ on the right-hand side of the page.


Once you’ve clicked on the ‘video’ link you will find a page with the ‘Editors’ pick’ and then various categories to choose from. In the category ‘Film’ you will find a video of Emma Watson talking about ‘life after Harry Potter’. You could use this in a book or film based lesson. Why not encourage your learners to talk or write about their favourite books, films or actors. You could introduce the lesson by playing the video on an interactive whiteboard or data projector and giving your learners some comprehension questions.

Below are some MEC resources you might like to use with this video.

Children’s literature – Web Project (multi level)

legend Paul Newman dies – News Item (multi level)

Jack Johnson Show – Listening Activity (level 3)
