“China Aerial” (by National Geographic)

Teaching ideas:

suitable for an advanced level, language and culture course. For the Unit on geography. Have students watch the documentary and zero in on one particular geo location of their interest. Explore it in detail in groups. Create a wiki page introducing the location. Assign similar components for the wiki page so groups will be able to hold similar expectations and control the extensiveness of the project.

Language practice can be embedded. For example, have students translate some parts and compare them with the subtitle provided on the screen.
