About

I've previously blogged about the "power of prediction" for language teaching and prompting student language production. Very much along the lines of guessing games. Here's another stellar way - What's Next?

They are videos that show a scene. The teacher pauses the video and asks the students to say what will happen next. This can either be by offering some possible outcomes (A, B, C, D) or asking students to use their own thoughts (write down some "gambits" for prompting student language - "I think..... is / age going to ...." | "... is are possibly going to ..." | "... might ......" etc ).

It's easy to do and what's better, teachers have already done a lot of the leg work. Find many already on EFL Classroom 2.0.   Download this one for offline viewing for offline viewing.

Also see this video lesson perfect for "prediction"! 

Also this lesson plan with resources/videos to use and download. (warning: larger file)

Here is a nice Family Guy video that pauses and asks the students to predict what will happen next. One point for each correct answer.  Students can use the worksheet to write down their answers.
