How did you structure the class?


  1. My story with <The Martian> & <Harry Potter>.
  2. Presentation: introduction to Harry Potter
  3. Wrap-up: Are you going to watch the full movie (again)?

What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

PowerPoint slides (13 in total)

I looked up pictures of the movie on Baidu image.

I used 笔记本 to create notes (see Appendix A)

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

The lesson went really well. Students were really passionate about the topic. In this class every student had read the book and watched the movies before, so we talked quite a lot about it.

How could this class be improved/ modified?

I would say I’d like the class to stay like this.
