The #1 .......( short video for Teens)

Number One** Not your ordinary endless list - just what's number 1. Simply THE BEST.

Mr. Morton is the Subject of the Sentence

This video is from Schoolhouse Rock ( Get all of them on EFL Classroom 2.0 in a handy player HERE). It was made in the late 70s to "reinvigorate" students and learning. A way of connecting with disenchanted students (sound familiar?????).

This video rulzs!!!!     View and download in Google Drive.

I love this video! It's almost worth teaching "predicate" just to use it!
