Movie Talk with GIFs

I have been going back through my saved posts on feedly and finding all sorts of teaching treasures. Here’s a post Mike Peto wrote last year on using animated GIFs for movie talk. He has a whole downloadable file of funny GIFs you could use. I am teaching on block schedule for the first time and I think these would make a great brain break or end-of-class filler! My default program doesn’t play the GIF, but shows each individual frame.  I think this view would work well for slowing down and delaying the punchline, and then I can open with google chrome in order to actually play the clip.
