Brokeback Mountain. They were raised on small, poor ranches in opposite corners of the state, Jack Twist in Lightning Flat, up on the Montana border, Ennis del Mar from around Sage, near the Utah line, both high-school drop-out country boys with no prospects, brought up to hard work and privation, both rough-mannered, rough-spoken, inured to the stoic life.
Ennis, reared by his older brother and sister after their parents drove off the only curve on Dead Horse Road, leaving them twenty-four dollars in cash and a two-mortgage ranch, applied at age fourteen for a hardship license that let him make the hour-long trip from the ranch to the high school. The pickup was old, no heater, one windshield wiper, and bad tires; when the transmission went, there was no money to fix it. He had wanted to be a sophomore, felt the word carried a kind of distinction, but the truck broke down short of it, pitching him directly into ranch work. In 1963, when he met Jack Twist, Ennis was engaged to Alma Beers. OB TeachersNotes. English%2010%20Book%20thief%20Packet%202012 13. 309119. The Local - Sweden's News in English.
Läsförståelsestrategier på svenska och engelska. Att arbeta med läsförståelsestrategier är inget nytt för svensklärare, men tack vare det utvidgade kollegiet sprids många bra varianter för att förtydliga och synliggöra detta arbete.
Som språklärare har jag inte fått någon formell utbildning kring detta, så inspirationen för min del kommer från nätet. Jag har tittat på de jättetydliga filmerna som Susanne Nystedt har gjort, kollat in Josef Sahlins sida, kikat in på En läsande klass och läst Annika Sjödahls tydliga beskrivningar. Grunden för dessa strategier ligger hos Barbro Westlund och hennes bok Att undervisa i läsförståelse. Från denna bas kommer strategierna Att förutspå, Att ställa frågor, Att reda ut oklarheter och Att sammanfatta. Listen and Read Along: Importance of Hand Washing.

Customers Review – “Seamless continuation from previous title” One thing I must say between books 1 and books 2 of the Hunger Games books is how seamless they seem to flow into each other.
As most would agree, the first Hunger Games was excellently put together so a continuation was very much welcomed.The narrator grew on me, she did a very good job voicing the different characters that are introduced (which were quite a few). She did very well to show the tortured nature of the characters in this book.Catching Fire introduces a lot of very interesting new characters I must say. The tyranny of the Capital and of Snow becomes even more evident in the title. The story progresses very quickly I find and certain aspects of the book seems a bit rushed if you ask me, however much was not lost in this title and it was very much enjoyed. Publisher’s Summary What the Critics Say “Collins expertly blends fantasy, romance and political intrigue (so who needs vampires?).” The_boy_in_the_striped_pyjamas_etext.

Suggested Response: The lessons of the story include: (1) standing on the fringes of life leads nowhere; if you want something, go for it; if you don't you'll never get it; if you try, you will often succeed; (2) acceptance by others and acceptance of others is important to everyone; as the author/director said in the commentary "When we accept each other, we save each other every day"; (3) people accept the love they think they deserve; (4) at the end of the day it's your family and your friends who get you through life.
