Happy American Thanksgiving 2017! What is the history behind the US national ...

Of course, it's an American national holiday, but the vast majority of people in the UK are at least vaguely aware of Thanksgiving Day. Featuring in any number of films out there, it involves families coming together to share a feast centred around turkey, take in massive parades and watch American football. Lots of expat Americans living this side of the Atlantic will celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday 23 November, but many Brits won't have a clue what exactly is being honoured. So here's everything you need to know about the festivities which serve as a pre-cursor to Christmas. When is Thanksgiving? Without exception, Thanksgiving always falls on the fourth Thursday of November. This year that's today.

8 Words That Put One Over on You

Paul Pioneer Press, 8 Oct. 2017 Bamboozle doesn't have anything to do with bamboo, though etymologists aren't sure about its origin. It dates to at least the 18th century and was still a relatively new term when Jonathan Swift, in 1710, wrote an article complaining about "the Choice of certain Words invented by some pretty Fellows," listing bamboozle among them. That didn't stop later authors, such as Henry James and Herman Melville, from using the word.

English Card Game – Kings (No, not the drinking game) – The Canswedian English Teacher

Kings was a drinking game with different rules for each card you turn over. I (being the incredibly responsible person that I am) NEVER took part in those silly shenanigans… Now, many moons later, I have stumbled upon this drinking game again on the internet and thought that it might be fun to turn it into some sort of English Grammar/Speaking game. Apparently I am not alone in this – just search the web and you will see LOADS of other teachers who have though the exact same thing. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – Letter to the Dursley’s – The Canswedian English Teacher.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – Letter to the Dursley’s – The Canswedian English Teacher

“Brianne. Just so you know. I hate Harry Potter. I also think Dumbledore is the worst.” SHOCK AND HORROR! We all know Dumbledore is a boss, gives the best advice plus the man had a plan right from the moment he dropped little Harry off on the Dursley’s front stoop with the letter.

Quick Replies! Speaking Practice – The Canswedian English Teacher

Case in point: A few years ago, I had to go down to the drug store (apotek) and get medicine for my cat because he had worms (fun). On the way down I practiced in my head… “Jag skulle vilja ha mask medicin…” (I would like to have worm medicine) over and over again. I was going to NAIL this. Finally, I get down to the store and go up to the lady behind the counter. “Hej! The joys of speaking another language. Noteringsunderlag för Engelska delprov A Åk9 Lgr11.

Ten books every teacher should read. Plato’s Republic, Rousseau’s Émile and Dewey’s Democracy and Education – there’s a strong case to be made, as Dennis Hayes has, that these are the only books on education that teachers need to read.

But if I was about to enter the classroom as a teacher for the first time or was looking to improve my practice, I would probably want to read something with more practical advice on what I should be doing and, more importantly, on what I shouldn’t. Much of what happens in a classroom is highly variable and hard to define, but over the last 10 years a wealth of books has sought to draw together evidence from other fields and provide a series of “best bets” on what might have the greatest impact on student learning.
