What’s in a film

Have you seen this great post by Anthony Schmidt on how to use an online tool called PlayPhrase in the classroom? PlayPhrase is a small corpus of about 300 films and TV shows where you input any phrase into the search window and have the website play it to you in many different contexts.

It seems nice enough as it is, but Anthony goes further and creates several lessons around this tool! There are ready-made presentation files and explanations for seven different activities in his post – definitely not to be missed.
