Students leave our classrooms daily and many never hear the target language for at least 24 hours or more. This session will demonstrate how to use current events, short video clips or any topic to create opportunities for students to story listen. This is an effective way to begin class and "warm up" the students' ears at the beginning of each period assisting teachers to keep to 90% target language in the class.

The session will begin with a demonstration of a comprehensible input story based on a clip or good news event. After modeling the strategy, I will ask participants to share what types of story listening they are doing in their classes. I will then display a power point slide with visual clues and give a few minutes for participants to create a story. After a short period of time, I will ask for volunteers to share their story with the group. We will be able to compare and contrast what we observe and discuss any other ideas that would add to the technique. I will also share several websites and other locations from which to create their stories.
