How to prepare your students for the Extended Essay | IB Community Blog The Extended Essay is a challenge for every student. How can you make sure they feel prepared rather than panicked? It’s the culmination of years of effort, a signature of the IB Diploma Programme and the perfect preparation for life beyond the classroom. In fact, IB Diploma Programme alumni said the Extended Essay prepared them the most for the rigours of university life – they felt ahead of their peers in terms of the skills required for undertaking independent research. But the self-directed Extended Essay is also a source of dread for many students, who fear its rigour, complexity and sheer length. Start them young The concept of writing an essay would draw a blank look from most four-year-olds. Four-year-olds extract information from non-fiction texts and answer ‘mini-research’ questions. ‘Formal Research Writing’ classes commence in middle school and students are encouraged to choose a topic from those in the Extended Essay guide.

The MHMS Daring School Library Blog 5 Quick and Fun Verb Games to Liven Up Your ESL Classroom “Fluffy cat sneaky mouse yummy cheese.” What’s missing from that sentence? Well verbs, of course! Adding verbs between “fluffy cat,” “sneaky mouse” and “yummy cheese” immediately lets us enjoy the colors and energies of both language and imagination in full action: “A fluffy cat saw a sneaky mouse eating some yummy cheese!” For our students to enjoy these perks of English as well, we need to get them more comfortable with verbs. ESL Verb Games: A Great Way to Learn and Play Combining the variety of English verbs (action, linking, auxiliary, modal, etc.) and their complex usage, it is obvious that learning English verbs is a process riddled with challenges for our students. For us ESL instructors, teaching students about English verbs requires creativity that may often take us beyond conventional classroom activities, into the wonderful land of ESL games. Why Teach ESL Verbs with Games? Language learning is hard work – especially learning English, with that tricky grammar! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

The Shelf | Journal Pourquoi créer une revue papier sur le livre à l’heure où l’Internet remet en question le matérialisme tout naturel de l’Occidental moyen, à l’heure où la valeur pécuniaire de «l’objet livre» refoule les adeptes du savoir gratuit disponible sur la toile ? Que deviennent aujourd’hui ces cahiers reliés, fondement de notre société, détenteurs de notre Histoire ? Face à la dématérialisation des contenus éditoriaux, la pratique du design au sein du livre prend une dimension d’autant plus importante. Objets anodins ou véritables œuvres d’art, les livres, à travers leurs formes et les histoires qu’ils racontent, ont la vocation de créer un lien unique avec ceux qui les lisent, les consultent ou les possèdent. C’est de cet attachement quasi-charnel qu’est né The Shelf Journal.

Myths, Folktales, and Fairy Tales Home Welcome to the Myths, Folktales and Fairy Tales Internet project. We've compiled contributions from many authors to create this rich resource for learning about and writing in these genres. During the project, we will have several authors live online to discuss their work in these genres and to answer questions from young writers working on creating their own. When we read these traditional stories from around the world, we find that the things we value most highly, fear most deeply, and hope for most ardently are valued, feared and hoped for by all people.

How Are Students’ Roles Changing in the New Economy of Information? Part 2 in the series Learning In the New Economy of Information. By Shawn McCusker Perhaps one of the most powerful expectations of students in an environment of scarcity is that they not question the source of the information. As the modern classroom has become connected, the amount of information available to both teachers and students has exponentially increased. Where teachers once lectured about important ideas and events, or shared their acquired knowledge with their students, today’s classrooms can see every key primary source document, the actual notes of great scientists, and a limitless amount of literary criticism. For generations, being a student meant being the recipient of scarce information. Socializing with others in class took place during some activities, but overall, the term “socializing” was used as a pejorative. The skills necessary to be a student in today’s information-rich environment are radically different.
