This video could be used for a class or group discussion. Students could Call a friend (page 109, The Oral Language Book) and tell them about rescuing the dogs. The partner could ask questions.

The video could also be used as a motivation for writing. Students could:

  • write questions to ask the man who rescued the dogs
  • recount the event
  • write a news report
  • write a first-person recount of the event.
