Livets lotteri – ett skrivprojekt Nedan följer delar av en variant på Boken om mig (som vi övergett för länge sedan då den inte riktigt ”tog fart”). Den här varianten har vuxit fram under de senaste åren och blir tydligare och bättre för varje år som går. Varje del föregås av gemensamma övningar (t ex läsning av texter, identifiering av typiska inslag i texterna och idésamlande), parvisa resonemang och en hel del tänkande. Eleverna måste ju veta vad reportage, resonerande text, beskrivande text och mininovell är för något eller för den delen hur man genomför en intervju eller hänvisar till källor för att kunna skriva de olika texterna. Delarna introduceras en i taget för att ge eleverna tid att tänka, samtala och påbörja sitt skrivande. Nedan presenteras enbart delar av uppgifterna. Du ska skriva olika texter om en fantastisk, unik, underbar och fullständigt makalös person – dig själv! Du ska ta med foton så att boken blir trevligare att läsa. Omfattning: Ca 0,5-1 sida/uppgift, totalt 2,5-5 sidor. Gör så här

Here's an instance of using multiple perspectives: When studying the voyages of discovery, students would not only learn about explorers like Columbus, but about the peoples who had been "discovered." In the case of Reconstruction. . . . . . instead of giving students a list of facts and dates to memorize, I would ask them to conceive of what's happening as a three-sided conflict over the meaning of freedom. Consequently, for Wiener, "students end up learning not just about what happened during Reconstruction, but about how history itself gets reconstructed."

Use of the Present Perfect continue reading below our video Loaded: 0% Progress: 0% In British English the present perfect is used to express an action that has occurred in the recent past that has an effect on the present moment.
