Your TV Journal

Watch a 30-minute (or 1-hour) English TV program each week. Your program should be a current show with the same characters in each episode. (Examples: Desperate Housewives, Malcolm in the Middle, The Gilmore Girls, That 70's Show, Joan of Arcadia, House MD, Corner Gas, etc). You may NOT choose a documentary, a movie, a news show, a talk show, a star-search show or a reality show. Of course, you can record your show and watch it at a time that is convenient for you. In fact, this is highly recommended as it will allow you to review any parts you did not understand the first time.
Each time you write about your show, include the following information:
Title of Program / Day and Time of Program / Date you watched it / Channel
Also include the Word Count for each entry.

Try adding pictures and links to your blog and don't forget to look at your classmates' blogs to find out what they are watching--leave a comment!

Week 1 Assignment: Write a 100 to 150-word text describing the TV program you plan to watch. Describe the main characters and give a basic description of what the program is about. Write your text in the PRESENT tenses: simple present and present continuous. Don't forget the word count. DUE Week 2.

Dear Jane,

This sounds like a great project! I don't watch much TV, but those programs you selected are among the few ones I watch. My favorite is Desperate Housewives ;-)
Good luck for you and your students!
I will keep visiting the blog :-)
