Using Video to Enhance or Flip Speaking, Pronunciation, and Listening, Part 2

As described in PART 1, flip teaching blends Internet technology to leverage learning in a classroom, enabling students to spend more class time interacting with the teacher and classmates, solving problems, and otherwise putting language to use. In Part 1, I present How to Make S'mores as an example of a short instructional presentation. In Part 2, I present an example focusing on phonological elements of spoken English.


Example 2: Tiffany's Daffodils

  • Video from Pronunciation Doctor’s Youtube Channel
  • Narrative, a story in the past time, concrete, focused on past tense phonology
  • Video viewing assignments (homework)
  • Intermediate-low/mid
  • Intermediate-high – Advanced-low
  • Classroom discussion
  • Post-viewing discussion
  • Presentation planning and implementation

Video viewing assignment

  • Phonological analysis – See Phrase by Phrase Chapter 5 Cleaning up the Backyard
  • Sound Focus 1 Words stress and intonation
  • Sound Focus 2 The /t/ sounds
  • Sound Focus 3 The /d/ sounds
  • Sound Focus 4 The regular past tenses –ed endings /t/, /d/, /ɪd/
  • Sound Focus 5 Vowel length

Oral presentation: a story about an event in the past time 

  • Compose your own story about something that happened in the past. 

Observe how Kim Chi, a Vietnamese-speaking student, uses these sound focuses to describe her Vacation in Canada.
