A podcast about life as a teenager in Sweden

We will work with podcasts the last weeks. We are going to follow a Syrian family in this podcast. I will give you questions to discuss. You are also going to produce your own podcasts and reflect on your own lives in Sweden. The ability we are going to focus on is this: reflect over living conditions, social and cultural phenomena in different contexts and parts of the world where English is used. reflektera över livsvillkor, samhällsfrågor och kulturella företeelser i olika sammanhang och delar av världen där engelska används This is the assessment: Pupils can understand the main content and basic details in English spoken at a moderate pace and in basic texts in various genres.

In oral and written production, pupils can express themselves simply, understandably and relatively coherently. Here are some suggested topics to your podcasts:

Once (Morris Gleitzman novel) Once is a 2005 children's novel by Australian author Morris Gleitzman. It is about a Jewish boy named Felix, who lived in Poland, and is on a quest to find his book-keeper parents after he sees Nazis burning the books from a Catholic orphanage library in which he stays. He finds a girl called Zelda in a house with her dead parents - he takes her with him and protects her from confronting her parents' death by telling her stories. Although Once is a work of fiction, Gleitzman was inspired by the story of Janusz Korczak, the events of World War II, and Hitler's attempt to exterminate the Jewish population of Europe.
