In the Story Impression strategy, pairs of students write a one-paragraph story together, using new vocabulary words. The teacher designates which words or phrases to use, and lists them in the order they appear in the BrainPOP ELL movie. Since students must use the words in that order, they are also using predicting and sequencing skills. Alternatively, students may use as many of the new vocabulary words as possible, and write about any topic they like. When they have finished, invite students to share their paragraphs with the class. This strategy requires students to process the vocabulary words on a more creative and higher cognitive level, which will aid comprehension of the movie and/or reading that follows.
