What worked well in this class? What did not work?

Everything worked quite well. However, though the video is perfect for weather + crime vocabulary (the previous lesson was about weather so with this video students repeat previous vocabulary and learn new), it was a bit too difficult even for advanced students. 

How could this class be improved/ modified?

Probably cut some parts of the video and make shorter the video and the list of vocabulary (from 6 min to 3 or so). In this case, it won’t be so tiresome for students to listen to it.

Please attach your lesson plan and handouts for this class below – if you used any.
