BRIEF OUTLINE: Students watch an episode of Mr. Bean and use this as a way to access both culture and recent grammar points.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Flashcards to help explain Mr Bean (optional)

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Before:
    • Talk about who Mr. Bean is, the style of his films - laugh track, no words, from England, etc.
    • Use flash cards to explain.
  2. During:
    • Stop the video at appropriate stop place to talk about what just happened. As specific students questions like ‘What did Mr. Bean do?’ etc
    • Procedures in playing the video:
      • Play from start to calligraphy scene
      • Pause to point out car and car lock, army men
      • Start 16.09 (put on subtitles) or view two times
      • What is bow?
      • Play 21.28 to end
      • Was Mr. Bean sad at the end of the film?
    • Students work in groups to put the verbs in the right place and mixed up sentences in order according to films events.
    • Get students to fill out the follow up side of the worksheet
    • Discuss as a class the answers to the sheet
  3. After:
    • Students work in groups to put the verbs in the right place and mixed up sentences in order according to films events
    • Get students to fill out the follow up side of the worksheet
    • Discuss as a class the answers to the sheet:

      • He PUSHED a car down the mountain.
      • He TALKED to the army men.
      • The army men SAID hello.
      • He LOOKED at pictures.
      • He STOOD in front of a man.
      • Mr. Bean was SCARED of the Judo teacher.
      • Mr. Bean BOUGHT a cake.
      • His car was RUN OVER by an army truck.
      • The car lock MADE him HAPPY.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • You can just make this a revision and use the ordered side.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Make sure you edit out the parts you don’t think students should see.
  • This lesson takes a bit of viewing preparation. I used my computer hooked up to a projector which was easier to navigate than a DVD player.
