Double Vision Video
Double Vision Video - Use this strategy to clarify input and improve listening comprehension.
The students will watch the same short video clip twice -the first time with no sound. The learners will make predictions about the video and possible vocabulary that might be included. During the second viewing, the students will listen for specific language and content during the video. The learners will take notes and then discuss important content with peers.
