This semester in my Low-Intermediate English Conversation classes, students were required to complete two or more YouTube video tasks as a kind of interim and performance assessment. There were ~10 tasks, each representing a unit covered in the book. Students could choose the task they wanted. Each task required the authentic use of the unit’s language skills. Some tasks required simple diary-type videos. Others required more creative videos. These tasks served as performance assessments giving students meaningful practice of key language points while demonstrating competence in using the points themselves, and the points in proper context.
I chose five exemplary videos that I really enjoyed (reposted with permission). Below is the video playlist. After the playlist is the list of student YouTube channels.
