The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Från jullovet till nu har jag arbetat med The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian av Sherman Alexie med mina nior. Vi har arbetat en lektion i veckan och eleverna har läst största delen hemma. Det är en hyfsat enkel bok med en hel del illustrationer som underlättar förståelsen. Om ni inte har tillgång till klassuppsättning av boken kan ni hitta den digitalt här: Digital version Här kommer en sammanställning av hela temat. Lektion 1: Say Geronimo Lektion 2: I am Zero Lektion 3: Discussion Lektion 4: Skype in the classroom - Indians Lektion 5: Writing (Vi har gjort annat än detta också lektionstid, därav att det är 5 lektioner.)

Valentine | Search Results My latest New York Times post for English Language Learners is on Valentine’s Day and idioms. It includes a student interactive and teaching ideas. And here’s a “video bingo” activity that didn’t get included because of space limitations, but I thought readers would find it useful so I’m sharing it here. It’s in four “steps”: 1. Tell students they are going to play a game. 2. 3. 4. This kind of video bingo can be used with any kind of video! You can see all my previous New York Times posts here. I’m adding these activities to The Best Sites To Learn About Valentine’s Day. 3 activities for Valentine's day | Online TEFL Training Whoops! You’ve completely forgotten that Valentine’s Day is round the corner and you haven’t planned anything with a romantic theme for your classes. Don’t panic – Here are 3 last-minute love lessons / activities for you to try which require very little preparation. TIP: Not all learners feel comfortable talking about their private lives and relationships. In order not to invade their privacy, you might want to ask them to create roles based on pictures. Briefly introduce the concept of ‘speed dating’. Great for: 2nd conditionals “If you were to go out with me, you’d have the night of your life.” Create a simple handout on an A4 sheet of paper. Who was the man? Who was the woman? Where were they were they met? What was he doing when they met? What did they say to each other? What did they think of each other? What did they do after they met? What happened in the end Great for: Practising narrative tenses. Give each student a portrait photo. What should people do to find a partner?

Can you google that? – informationssökning på engelska | Mias klassrum Att internet flyttat in i våra klassrum är det ingen som har missat, men att det smugit sig in bland kunskapskraven är det många som missat, försöker låtsas om att de inte sett eller helt enkelt tycker är riktigt jobbigt. Men det finns ju där, vad vi än tycker om det. Det ska undervisas och bedömas, säga vad man vill om det. Att gå in på hur relevant och effektivt eleverna återanvänder sina sökresultat i sin egna produktion är en diskussion i sig, men nu tänkte jag fokusera på själva undervisningen. Can you google that? Som en del av övningen gör eleverna en självskattning, hämtad från bedömningsstödet. Efter genomgång och självskattning får eleverna öva på att söka information. Filen med övningen kan ni hämta här. Den som följt min blogg känner säkert igen frågorna, de är hämtade från det här inlägget. När vi avslutat denna övning kommer eleverna att få genomföra något av de olika prov som finns i Skolverkets bedömningsstöd.

Passion, by Alice Munro What are we going to do? We are going to read a short story by the Nobel Prize winner in literature 2013, Alice Munro. The story is called "Passion". I want to tell you a bit about the structure of this long-term homework. Why? Because to read a short story like this will help you develop your understanding of written English. You will hopefully have a nice experience from reading a text from a Nobel Prize winner in literature, writing in the fiction genre, which might lead to you wanting to read more fiction.

It is a very ‘honest’ love song. I think it reflects real life rather than a fairytale version of a relationship. This provides a good opportunity for students to discuss love songs, identify the opposite meanings and then interpret what the songwriter really means. Students then use what they have learned to talk about their own loved ones. Materials: PowerPoint slides here , song on YouTube, slide 6 printed off and cut up 1/group , worksheet without explanations 1/pair here and worksheet with explanation 1/pair and cut up here. Level: Upper Intermediate + adults Procedure Warmer– Students discuss love songs. Personalise– Show slide 13. Do you teach IELTS? Do you Like this: Like Loading...
