Syrian Journey: Choose your own escape route - BBC News
The Syrian conflict has torn the country apart, leaving thousands dead and driving millions to flee their homes. Many seek refuge in neighbouring countries but others pay traffickers to take them to Europe - risking death, capture and deportation. If you were fleeing Syria for Europe, what choices would you make for you and your family? Take our journey to understand the real dilemmas the refugees face. The routes, options and outcomes in this Syrian Journey feature were based on real stories uncovered by extensive research as part of a BBC Arabic digital project exploring migration from Syria. Research by Mamdouh Akbiek, Eloise Dicker Illustrations by Gerry Fletcher. Get involved We would like to know what you would take with you if you were forced to flee your country. Use the hashtags #whatwouldyoutake and #Syrianjourney to post your choices, with images and/or video.

Mina kollegor, Maria Ekelund och Marie Hansson, och jag har allihop 9or i år. Vi bestämde oss för att göra ett större projekt där alla eleverna var inblandade. På vår skola har vi nivågruppering och de elever som behöver mycket tydlig struktur och som fokuserar på att nå målen i engelska deltog inte. Vi har 2 x 60 minuter engelska per vecka. Lektion nr 1 och 2 : Introduktion av temat. Mellan lektion 2 och 3 gav vi respons på elevernas texter och kollade så att det inte var helt utflippat.

Sara Bruuns klassrum Elisabeths klassrum: The Civil Rights Movement, och så har jag en dröm Under året som gått har jag på nätet vid flera tillfällen stött på pedagoger som i engelskan arbetat med civil rights. Ett frö planterades och så småningom började det växa fram en tanke om att även jag ville göra något kring detta. Sagt och gjort - för någon månad sedan drog jag igång. Jag valde att inleda med att se filmen The Help, som handlar om den färgade hemhjälpen under 1950-60-talet. Describe how racism or classism interfered with an important personal relationship in this story.How do characters develope and change over the course of the story? Steg två blev att bekanta oss med Rosa Parks. Efter Rosa Parks förljde Martin Luther King. Givetvis har vi också tittat på det berömda I Have a Dream-talet, läst det tillsammans och tittat på hur det är uppbyggt. Vad skriver eleverna om då? Detta har varit ett riktigt kul projekt att arbeta med, dels för att jag fått lära mig så mycket jag inte visste innan och dels för att eleverna verkar ha uppskattat detsamma.

Alternatives to Free Time at the End of Class My first year of teaching, I would often end my lesson, check for understanding, have students fill out an exit ticket, review the homework assignment, breathe a sigh of relief, glance up at the clock, and develop immediate diarrhea upon realizing that I had a whole 10 minutes of class left. You see, I walk this weird, confusing line of being a teacher who hates giving students “free time” but also hates giving students busy work, so it was really hard for me to figure out what to do on the spot. This still happens every once in a while, but now, instead of succumbing to physical and emotional panic, I simply choose one of my weapons out of my Mildly-Academic-Things-You-Can-Do-With-10-Minutes-Left-of-Class Arsenal, which today I will be sharing with you. (Disclaimer: A good teacher would tell you, “Keep lecturing. 1) Show your students one of these videos and relate it back to your lesson/content somehow. 3) Play an ultra-quick round of Reviewsical Chairs. 5) Hold a limerick contest.
