Viewing guides

Viewing guides are usually a worksheet which students complete while watching a DVD, computer clip, video, film, or television programme. The tasks usually involve answering questions, finding missing information, facts or ideas, or completing a diagram, graph, or visual. It may also be an information transfer activity. Some key ideas or academic vocabulary may be pre-taught. The guides may also be differentiated for students working at different levels or for those who are new learners of English. Listening to films, TV and videos is often very difficult for second language speakers as the topic is often unfamiliar and involves a one way conversation. The learners are in a position of not being able to ask for clarification or to slow down the speed of the text.
