Learn English With Songs - Learn English Through Songs and Videos "ESL English Listening and Reading Audiobooks" SHELTER by Harlan Coben "Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After witnessing his father’s death and sending his mom to rehab, he’s forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey’s train wreck of a life is finally improving — until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn’t who she claimed to be.

Where did English come from? - Claire Bowern There are two other TED-Ed lessons related to this topic: How languages evolve and How did English evolve? (a lesson that fills in some of the details that we omit here due to the fact that the focus of this lesson was further in the past). There is still a great deal of debate about Indo-European, most importantly about the location of the homeland. To read more about this debate, there are classic books by Mallory and Renfrew, as well more recent works by Anthony. Then, read these articles by Bouckaert et al. At the same site, watch this movie that shows one hypothesis about how Indo-European languages expanded. To learn more about the distribution of languages across the world, see LL-map or The Ethnologue.

Berättelser som berör Läsårets sista lektion blev passande nog med ett härligt gäng ungdomar som går ut nian. Lektionen bjöd därför på sammanfattande tankar om ämnet svenska. Undervisningen har bland annat haft som syfte att: Utmana tankar genom olika berättelser (i bland annat reportage, krönikor, noveller, romaner, bilder, filmer och verkligheten)Uttrycka dessa tankar och åsikter i tal och skriftIfrågasätta det man ser, läser och hörUtveckla skrivandet i olika typer av texter En bärande grundidé som undervisningen vilar på är att den ska beröra och/eller att det ska upplevas som viktigt. Innan jag kunde släppa klassen var jag tvungen att visa en viral succé som jag bara älskar! Filmen kommer jag att använda i undervisningen nästa läsår. Jag visade klippet även i personalrummet där många lärare såg och blev berörda av filmen. Vet du Fredrik… vill du höra en sann historia om ett möte? Berättelser som berör. Med ett härligt avslutande möte tar jag nu sommarlov!

Christmas Traditions, Christmas History, Christmas Around the World, The Christmas Story and Christmas Fun and Games! - whychristmas?com En deckarhistoria med digitala verktyg Mina åttor har läst olika typer av deckare, bland annat Man kan bara bli hängd en gång och Ridån går upp. Den senare blev de mycket fästa vid och gav dessutom ett bra diskussionsunderlag. Vanligtvis skriver eleverna egna deckare, men tiden är knapp så här i slutet av terminen. Istället för att skriva en hel och omfattande deckare, blev alternativet att gestalta sig själv som huvudperson i valfri deckargenre. Historien skulle berättas i en Thinglink. Välja karaktär: Pusseldeckarens smarta detektiv, en hårdkokt snut, en psykopat eller varför inte en mix av alla? För att skapa en interaktiv deckarhistoria behöver du: En selfie och googlade bilder.Alfafunktionen i Pages. Tiden då?

This is a good time to improve students’ study skills as they tend to be especially keen on improving their studies at the beginning of the term. Link: School Start 7-9 Kopia av Linking words Video Lesson: Mr. Bean / the future Follow me on twitter This is a video lesson based around the video “Mr. Bean packs his suitcase” thanks to British Council for bringing it to my attention in their lesson plan on making predictions but I’ve adapted it for use in different ways with different levels. Kids and lower levels The aim of this lesson plan is to practice holiday vocabulary (clothes and items that go in a suitcase) and some basic grammar structure. Project a picture of a suitcase on to the board (or draw one) and ask “What do you put in your suitcase when you go on holiday?” toothbrushtoothpasteswimming shorts/trunkstowelunderpantscan of baked beanscloth/flannelsoapbooksuitcasetrousersshortsshoesteddy bearscissors You could also use this quizlet set to go over clothes vocabulary.
