Television Show Lost
Using ABC's "Lost" has lead to really great practice in listening and writing skills in my high school classes. Turn on the subtitles for the less proficient kids. Make comprehension and interpretation questions for the kids to answer; and for further writing practice, have the kids write journals from the perspective of a character of their choice. Leads to really creative writing! Remind the kids they are writing JOURNALS, so that means they need to include the thoughts and feelings of what happens to them, not just a "summary" of what happens in an episode. Great for Fridays!
