Collaborative idea generation for ELT

Dexter’s Routine

Sabrina De Vita suggested this week’s prompt in her post about Dexter’s daily routine. For those of you who don’t know the series (which included me!) here’s the first sentence from Wikipedia explaining what it’s about:

Dexter is an American television drama series that centers on Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a bloodstain pattern analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department who moonlights as a serial killer.

The first video is about Dexter’s morning routine:

The second is about a woman’s evening routine, made in a similar vein.

How would you use these videos in your classroom? You can make any assumptions you like about the context they are used in. Post your ideas in the comments below. All ideas are welcome (there are no wrong answers!)

P.S. This week’s post is a couple of days late I’m afraid – I completely forgot it was Wednesday, then didn’t have time to post yesterday!

    This comes in handy ’cause my students are currently working on “daily routines” to practice their Simple Present and get some verb vocabulary… so thanks a lot!! xD I hadn’t thought of it..

  3. Hi ,Could you send me information about the second video ?it’s no longer available.Thanks in advance !

  4. Thank you for letting me know Christine. I’ve tried to find an equivalent video as this one no longer exists, but unfortunately the only similar things are women putting on lots of make-up and doing their hair! Perhaps your class could work together to make one?
