Something to get your teeth into - Mia Smith I mötet med talat språk och texter ska eleverna ges möjlighet att utveckla förmågan att sätta innehållet i relation till egna erfarenheter, livsvillkor och intressen. Undervisningen ska även ge eleverna möjligheter att utveckla kunskaper om och förståelse för olika livsvillkor samt sociala och kulturella företeelser i områden och i sammanhang där engelska används.Lgr11: Kursplan i engelska, syfte I engelskundervisningen utgår jag från engelskspråkiga länder när jag planerar undervisningen och mina 9or är just nu i USA på sin virtuella resa runt jorden. Just amerikansk kultur är ju något våra ungdomar möter i väldigt hög grad utanför skolan, så det kan vara svårt att hitta bitar som är intressanta och nya för alla elever. Redan 2008 hittade jag en blogg som inspirerade mig och gav mig många skratt. Jag har reviderat texterna ytterst lite, endast korrigerat stavfel.

Perseus Digital Library History | Lincoln Cathedral You are here: Home » Building » History Everyone knows William the Conqueror; imagine standing in front of a building he commissioned, built by one of his right-hand men? Norman Times The heavy rounded arches at the west front are believed to date from Remigius’s original structure designed to set William’s Norman stamp on the country he had invaded. Imagine the Anglo-Saxon inhabitants and how they may have responded to this giant of a building rising amid their huts? Perhaps they may have felt protected from the threat of Vikings from the north? It was in 1092 that this first Cathedral at Lincoln built by Bishop Remigius was consecrated. A castle had already been established in Lincoln by William, located in the south-west corner of the old Roman upper city. Moving to the Gothic In 1141, or possibly earlier, there was a fire which severely damaged the Cathedral. St Hugh An earthquake caused structural damage to Lincoln Cathedral in 1185. Magna Carta This Angel Choir was consecrated in 1280.

Läsning på djupet - läsning tillsammans - Mia Smith Många rapporter kommer om att elever går ut grundskolan utan att ha läst en hel bok. Jag har bestämt mig för att göra det jag kan för att motverka detta, så nu läser mina elever böcker i engelska. Mycket av detta har jag läslyftet att tacka, både gällande metoder och mod att våga. Just nu kör jag ett projekt där två klasser samarbetar. Eleverna har fått välja mellan två böcker och jag har skapat läsgrupper där eleverna från de två klasserna blandats. Den ena boken är Holes av Louis Sachar, den andra är The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian av Sherman Alexie. För att få ihop samarbetet har jag byggt läsprocessen på digitalt samarbete. Steg 1 Val av bok, uppstart och ett första gruppsamtal. Steg 2 Eleverna fick sedan fortsätta läsa enskilt. Steg 3 Som avslutning samlas vi till ett ytterligare samtal. Steg 4 Gruppdiskussioner i all ära, jag vill att eleverna ska få en chans att visa sin personliga reflektion också.

A History of Lincoln, Lincolnshire After the Romans left Angles from Germany conquered Lincolnshire. At that time the town of Lincoln was almost empty. There may have been a small number of people living inside the walls and farming the land outside. However Lincoln had ceased to be a town. Lincoln revived when the Danes conquered the area in the late 9th century. In the 10th century it was captured by Alfred the Great's son but the Danish influence lingers on. In the 10th century a suburb grew up called Wigford. Lincoln grew to be a large and important town with its own mint. By the time of the Domesday book (1086) Lincoln probably had a population of around 6,000. In 1068 William the Conqueror built a wooden castle at Lincoln to make sure the townspeople behaved themselves. In 1072 the Bishop moved his seat to Lincoln from Dorchester. In the late 11th century a new suburb grew up called New Port (port is an old work for market or town). Lincoln was also sacked twice during civil wars. Life in the Middle Ages Home

Lesson plan: How to teach your students about fake news | Lesson Plan | PBS NewsHour Extra Fake news is making news, and it’s a problem. Not only did a BuzzFeed data analysis find that viral stories falsely claiming that the Pope endorsed Donald Trump and that Hillary Clinton sold weapons to terrorists receive more Facebook attention than the most popular news stories from established news outlets, but a false story about child trafficking in a Washington, D.C. pizza restaurant inspired a North Carolina man to drive 5 hours with a shotgun and other weapons to investigate. This lesson gives students media literacy skills they need to navigate the media, including how to spot fake news. Subjects Social studies, U.S. government, civics, journalism Estimated Time One 50-minute class Grade Level Introduction A recent study by Stanford University found an overwhelming majority of students were not able to tell the difference between so-called fake news and real news. Procedure Essential question What media literacy skills do students need to evaluate the reliability of a news source?

Map reading skills: learn how to use grid references Thinking of getting out and about now spring is on the way? Do you need to brush up on your map reading skills? Make a start by finding out how to use grid references. National Grid references are used to accurately pinpoint your location on an Ordnance Survey map. You may find a variety of terms used to describe National Grid references, such as ‘OS grid ref’, ‘grid reference’, ‘OS map ref’ or simply ‘map reference’. The National Grid Before we look at what the grid reference numbers mean, it’s important to understand the wider picture of the National Grid. Ordnance Survey divides Great Britain into 100 km by 100 km squares, each with a two-letter code. The first letter, for example ‘S’, denotes 500 km by 500 km squares and this is subdivided into 25 squares that are 100 km by 100 km within it, making ‘ST’, ‘SU’, ‘SO’ and so on. A unique National Grid reference should have this two-letter descriptor followed by the grid reference numbers within that square. National Grid reference numbers

Archetype of Trickster – Clown and the Fool | Dream Encyclopedia In several cultures the fool appears under the guise of idiot, trickster, harlequin, clown or jester. In the Japanese story Monkey this character is portrayed as Pig; in Britain it is Reynard the Fox, and in the USA Brer Rabbit and Coyote. Charlie Chaplin is a world image in modern times of this crazy, unpredictable yet wise clown. Jung puts all these figures under the name of Trickster, who he says represents the earliest and least developed period of life – or the least developed side of our personality. Trickster delights in all sorts of pranks mischief and jokes. The undeveloped, idiot side of this symbol may have a type of clear-sightedness due to lacking the complications and contradictions of thinking and intellectual values. The fool or clown is also about the ability to either laugh at the ridiculousness of life, or to cut through the social shams and reveal our hypocrisy in an acceptable way. Useful Questions and Hints: What is my trickster/clown revealing to me about myself?

Var hittade du det, då? - Mia Smith Informationssökningen är en del som behöver integreras i undervisningen lika mycket som andra delar av kursplanens innehåll. Jag har bloggat om detta i flera inlägg förut, om digital läsförståelse, ett integrerat realiaprojekt och om det övergripande ansvaret för den digitala undervisningen. Jag tar mig dock friheten att lyfta nya exempel, eftersom det här ett område jag ofta för höra att lärare känner sig osäkra kring. Informationssökning kan kopplas in i vilket arbetsområde som helst, och när man väl fått kläm på grunderna är det lätt att skapa nya övningar. Som vanligt utgår jag från Skolverkets bedömningsstöd i digital läsförståelse, de följdfrågor som finns i de olika uppgifterna där tar jag med mig när jag skapar mina egna följdfrågor. Som alltid när eleverna introduceras för ett nytt område vill jag ge dem en genomgång. Hur får jag då grunden till min genomgång? När eleverna sedan övar på detta gör de det alltid i grupp, helt enkelt för att man lär sig bäst i samspelet med andra.

Journal Parsifal. Odilon Redon. 1912. Musee D'Orsay, Paris. Parsifal. We first met in an exhibition room at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. His face, however, was not nearly so clear that day as the image above. I circled through the d'Orsay numerous times, leaving Parsifal behind to visit other exhibitions -- only to find my way back, time and again, to Redon's visionary world. And so to Parsifal, the archetype of the innocent fool. When Parsifal lost his father, he was still a little boy and so his mother took him to an isolated cottage in the woods to raise him. His travels brought him to the magical Grail Castle. Shortly after leaving the castle, Parsifal learned of his mistake. For the next twenty years, Parsifal tried to find his way back to the castle and to the wounded Fisher King. Parsifal is the fool, the fool within all of us, who must create space between himself and the world as he knows it and embark on the journey. Why is the journey necessary?
