Abstract

This paper fundamentally centers on the practical approach to written outputs intended to be produced by higher education institutions’ advanced English language and literary learners through a teacher’s chosen authentic material after a systematic performance of pre-viewing and viewing tasks on a music video to yield post-viewing production- worthy instructions. In here,  the principles of multimedia  and  special contiguity are applied out of the seven (7) principles which Mayer (2001)  framed under the Cognitive Theory  of  Multi-Media  Learning along  with  a  mass media- related material as a  springboard. The involvement of other correlated theories of learning is also manifested in this paper. These writing activities endeavor to demonstrate possible and effective classroom applications of an authentic material obtained from mass media with the writer’s belief that embedded elements and structures interplay in the reading, listening, viewing skills and speaking to produce varied written outputs. This paper also  delivers  the central idea  that  out of  original media for entertainment, exist  distinctive features  that are capable  as  catalysts   for  language  and literary  learning   alongside  with  the   efficacious manipulation of  their  textual, audio and visual components. Specifically, this paper presents how teachers  instructionally manipulate a music video to serve as a motivationally worth-digesting springboard to  exemplify  real-world  materials from learners’ environment  that are significant for  their language writing skills’ refurbishment interlacing other  macro skills  not  to mention  the  literary awareness  to  be acquired. Furthermore, this  paper is inscribed  as a form of   recommendation for  language  educators to directly and practically employ in  writing instructions  if  not  to  use the wide-ranging tasks as  bases  to innovate  other  similar  activities  in English language and literary instructions. Finally, this paper seeks to provide teachers practical technological involvement in the selection of materials, preparation of materials and presentation   of   lessons out of similar resources that stimulate pedagogical interplays in appropriately catering to the students’ level of comprehensions and interests. While  not  all  English   language  programs  from educational institutions stipulate the  use  of   motion pictures in language  instructions, this  paper  attempts  to stir educators’ innovative   concepts  to  create supplementary strategies that  may allude in  interweaving the macro skills  of learners  for the  attainment of  intended learning outcomes. As a best practice employed in many universities these days, this deserves to be shared.
