In this video, Dan Meyer demonstrates how the movie search engine Subzin could be very useful for teachers.

I would strongly recommend you read his short, but elegant, post describing how he used it to create this video. Subzin is a search engine for quotes in movies and series. For example, here’s a page of results after I searched “asking questions” and I see some good candidates for The Best Videos Showing The Importance Of Asking Good Questions list.

ESL/ELL teachers could find this very handy when they’re looking for clips to support thematic units like food, or specific grammar functions.

I’ll be adding this resource to The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL (& How To Use Them).

Now, sit back and enjoy Dan’s work (though, again, be sure to read his post about it, too):
