Subject: Last call for classvideo input

This Monday I need to get to work on writing up my findings but I'd like to
request once more the assistance of all of you on ADS-L (or as many of you
as have time to help) with the next issue of the ADS Teaching Newsletter
(an insert in the NADS, appearing once or twice a year). Thanks to all of
you who have responded so far. I'd still like to know from as many more
of you as possible what VIDEOS you've actually been using in your
language-related classes.

If you are pressed for time, you can just fill in the following template:


STUDENT LEVEL: (high school, college freshman, sophomore-junior, senior,

***and for EACH video you use:
PUBLISHER: (the production company, if you know it)
ORDERING INFO: (where the video is ordered from, and the price if you know
SUBJECT MATTER: (in a couple of sentences, what's on the tape).

IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE MORE TIME, I'd appreciate hearing from you, in a
paragraph or three, what scenes you particularly call your students'
attention to, and why those scenes are important to your teaching goals in
the course.

I'll be compiling your responses until March 23 (at which point I have to
write them up and send them on to NADS). I hope you can find a little
time between now and then to respond.

I particularly like to thank Bethany Dumas for giving me the inspiration
for this topic with her recent post about "Yeah you rite!"

Keep in in mind too, that you and any of your colleagues are invited to
submit items to the _Teaching Newsletter_ any time. In the past we've
published reviews of textbooks and other classroom supplements, as well as
short articles (1500 words or so) on teaching methods, course design, and
other language-teaching-related topics.

Thanks for your help.
