It's only the second class of the semester, but we were busy as usual!
We reviewed the guidelines for your Listening Reports. You will have to choose a video / audio file from one of the websites listed in the "Listening Reports" section and complete a short report. You can either write or type your report. You can find the worksheet templates in the "Listening Reports" section as well.
We also reviewed the guidelines for your Listening Interactions, and I modeled a Listening Interactions for you with the "Batman Begins" video. Remember that you have to choose a theme for your interaction: psychology or media. These interactions are similar to our group discussions last semester, but you will be using video rather than a news article.
Remember to go to Room 218 for next week's lesson. We'll need to use the computers for you to play your videos. Remember to also bring a pair of earphones. I'm sure you don't want to borrow mine!
Don't forget that you'll have to make copies for your group members! You'll need 6-8 copies since you'll present your interaction twice and will have 3-4 members in your group.
