My New How To Write Film activities Book

Posted on March 23, 2015 by kierandonaghy



I’m delighted that my new ebook How to Write Film and Video Activities co-authored with Anna Whitcher has been released by ELT Teacher2Writer. In this innovative and ground-breaking book Anna and I provide essential guidance on how to choose exploitable film and video for the purposes of writing film and video activities for the ELT classroom. We share our knowledge of the best sources of high-quality video and discuss criteria for selection, such as syllabus fit, language level, length, relevance and task potential. Once you’ve chosen a great video, we’ll show you how to write a variety of activities to exploit it.

Many teachers get in touch with me asking for advice about how they can write their own activities for films and videos they like, here in this ebook you have all the advice you’ll need to write your own fun, engaging and pedagogically sound film and video activities for your classes. Please consider buying this book as it helps to keep Film English completely free. You can buy the ebook on Amazon or Smashwords.

I hope you enjoy the book.

  1. Great to see your presentation at TESOL conference in sunny Salamanca. Certainly your treatments on Film English have geared up my classes. Having the book will give me mechanics to tackle preparation.

  2. Awesome! I’m certainly gonna buy it. However, is there a PDF version? or only kindle?

    Is there another book will be published soon by you about the same topic?
    I read 2 weeks ago on this website that there will be a book published in April, by a publisher called ‘delta’ or something. I can’t remember the exact details and I tried to search for that post but couldn’t find it.

    thank you!

  3. Congratulations on a great Training publication. It’s content is very well thought out and has a straightforward approach, and provides access to material for doing the tasks. I value the fact that it is concise, yet highly usable.
