Help students understand that self-esteem refers to how we understand and value ourselves. People with high self-esteem are realistic about their strengths and weaknesses and are able to set goals and work toward them with optimism and humor. They also feel competent in areas they consider important and do not take other people's negative impressions of them too seriously.

People with low self-esteem have a hard time honestly evaluating their strengths and weaknesses and often have an unrealistic, overall negative impression of themselves. For more information about research on self-esteem, visit the following Web sites: National Association for Self Esteem The Self Esteem Institute Tell students that an important first step in building self-esteem is taking a realistic look at their strengths and weaknesses and likes and dislikes.

An Engaging Second Language Teaching Tool One of my favorite tools in my ESL classroom is my conversation idea box – a decorated cardboard box that I’ve filled with an assortment of conversation questions and speaking prompts.

Somehow, a box full of questions seems less threatening and more fun to students than a textbook full of questions. It is a fairly simple idea with so many potential uses. If you teach speaking or writing, I would recommend trying one out in your own classroom. In this article, I've outlined a bunch of ideas on how to make one, what to fill it with, and possible ways to use it. Here are some ideas on how to create and start using a conversation box of your own: 1. Any smallish container will do: A tissue box, a shoebox, a thingamajig that you found at a garage sale…whatever you have lying around. In my example, I wrapped an old shipping box in sunshine-colored construction paper. Filling Your Box - What Should You Put Inside? My box is filled with slips of paper.

The people who are still addicted to the Rubik's Cube. 28 April 2014Last updated at 05:36 ET By Tom de Castella BBC News Magazine The Rubik's Cube is the best selling puzzle toy of all time In the 1980s Rubik's Cubes seemed to be everywhere, but there are still legions of people obsessed with the coloured puzzles. The record for a human is 5.55 seconds. A robot can do it in 3.253.

Most people - despite toiling over it for hours - have probably never managed it. But 40 years after its birth, the Rubik's Cube continues to beguile, frustrate and - like a Filofax or Walkman - evoke its 1980s heyday when schools were full of children puzzling over its brightly coloured squares. The Magic Cube was invented in 1974 by Hungarian architecture professor Erno Rubik. As an object it has charm - its colours, the distinctive rattle as the pieces turn, a pleasing feel in the hand. The traditional cube has six faces each with three squares by three. It is devilishly difficult. Today at least there are YouTube tutorials.

She is a huge fan of The Amazing Race, so we thought hosting our own version would be a great way to celebrate her birthday. We had so much fun creating props for this event. From clues to signs to envelopes, our full collection of Amazing Race printables (available on Etsy) has it all! We’ve also since come up with techniques for making a clue box, fanny packs, and a pit stop mat. First up — the envelopes. Then we just stuck the printed envelope image (part of our printables collection on Etsy) on top and use some scissors to trim the excess. And just like that, the envelopes were done and ready to be stuffed with clues. That brings us to the second most important part of the Amazing Race — the clues! Print the completed clues out on white cardstock and cut them out with scissors or a paper trimmer. Now you’ve got everything you need for your own The Amazing Race party!

There are three different types of music videos - Performance based, narrative based and also concept based. These three different types of music video are used for different purposes depending on the message the band or artist are wishing to convey to their audience. Performance based - This type of music video is when the band or artist performs to the camera for most or all of the video. Along with the bad performing is usually sequences of footage which can or cannot relate to the song at all. This style is usually preferred by rock bands as it gives a chance for them to show the different instruments within the band and all of the band members playing together.

This type of music video relays on the audience focusing only on the band rather than having to follow a story throughout the video. Narrative based - This type of music video relays on the audience focusing on a story throughout the music video which is matched to the lyrics and story told in the song. 12 Kinds of Videos to Promote Your Music.
