Reading materials are sorted by language using the tabs at the bottom of the screen.

MovieTalk database Use this database to find short films, commercials, etc. that you can use for MovieTalk. Includes possible target structures and links to any known resources that have already been created to supplement the MovieTalk activity. Learn more about MovieTalk here.

Target structure database Use this database to get an idea about what structures other teachers are targeting! When possible, links to existing plans to target the given structures are included. Learn more about target structures here.

(*note: not all lessons provide students with comprehensible input) The first page of the database appears to be empty, but if you look at the bottom of the screen you will see tabs for many different languages.
