Pros

  • The video models that we all have stories to tell, stories that only we can tell
  • The writing process is modeled by the speakers' comments
  • Consider publishing the stories produced by your class
Cons

  • Some learners may find it difficult, at first, to identify with the three workers featured in the video; consider beginning with a discussion of class members' preconceptions of writers
