The Globe Trekker/Pilot Guides video collection is a treasure trove for any English teacher. It encompasses extensive material from every corner of the world, and especially English-speaking countries are lavished with attention. Australia, Canada, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, England – you name it.

Even individual cities are endowed with an approx. 50-minute complete video of its own, like London, New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New Orleans to name but a few. Covering the United States satisfactorily in the language classroom is a daunting project, especially if you want to give your students more than a superficial understanding of its history, geography, language and people. Most textbooks for EFL students fall short in this respect, and it’s understandable – time available is limited and there is so much more that needs to be covered.

In addition to making this initial decision, there are quite a lot of follow-up issues to consider: The next step is more work-intensive. The Civil Rights Movement, och så har jag en dröm. Under året som gått har jag på nätet vid flera tillfällen stött på pedagoger som i engelskan arbetat med civil rights. Ett frö planterades och så småningom började det växa fram en tanke om att även jag ville göra något kring detta. Sagt och gjort - för någon månad sedan drog jag igång. Jag valde att inleda med att se filmen The Help, som handlar om den färgade hemhjälpen under 1950-60-talet. Innan vi började titta pratade vi om medborgarrättsrorelsen i USA och vad det var. Eleverna fick också veta att de under filmens gång skulle fundera på följande: Describe how racism or classism interfered with an important personal relationship in this story.How do characters develope and change over the course of the story? Steg två blev att bekanta oss med Rosa Parks. Efter Rosa Parks förljde Martin Luther King.

Givetvis har vi också tittat på det berömda I Have a Dream-talet, läst det tillsammans och tittat på hur det är uppbyggt. Vad skriver eleverna om då? S.

"Who am I? " The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Storia Teaching Guide. Book Summary Arnold, aka Junior, introduces his hardscrabble life on the Spokane Indian reservation in the first chapter called The Black-Eye-of-the-Month Club. Through his “absolutely true” diary, Arnold describes his impediments and vulnerabilities, the biggest of which is living on a reservation where he is a zero with a zero future.

A pivotal conversation with a teacher spurs Arnold to make a daring life choice—to attend an all-white school miles from the reservation. His rocky start there, riddled with stereotypes and misunderstandings, slowly develops into surprising friendships and successes in academics and basketball. Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is based on Sherman Alexie’s own experiences growing up on the reservation. Contains mature content.
