Engage Now - Student Interactions - teacher heath Do you hear your students say things like: "No! That's Wrong!" "What are you talking about?" "Stop being so bossy!" Students Learn MORE when they discover new ideas from each other. I created 4 posters to hang on the wall, model, practice and constantly refer to during lessons. PROBLEM 1: Students weren't LISTENING to each other: First and foremost, I created a list of things that I wanted to 'see and hear' my kids doing that showed they were LISTENING to each other. PROBLEM 2: Students weren't STATING their thoughts clearly: Then, I created a list of idea 'stems' that would encourage students to use evidence to back up claims - this way, other students can see why a student made a claim. PROBLEM 3: Students were ARGUING and DISAGREEING: I created a list of 'respectful' ways to disagree. PROBLEM 4: Students weren't ASKING EACH OTHER FOR CLARITY: This was so weird to me. Here's a Music Video that shows each of the 4 topics in the posters:

10 Best Free Listening Websites with Quizzes to Practise for Listening Exams So what do you do to practise listening for exams? Growing up, I never had the opportunity to do any extra practice to improve my listening skills. We didn’t have the Internet and the thousand possibilities it offers to learners of any language nowadays. The teachers had an old tape player that sometimes stopped and started on its own and old tapes that ended up sounding distorted and most of the times unlistenable so if you wanted to get better at listening, you just listened to the radio and struggled to understand the lyrics and sing along. Not that I ever complained. That was the perfect excuse to listen to music while claiming to be working hard. So, exams are just around the corner and I know you’re beginning to freak out. These are, in my opinion, the best sites with quizzes to practise listening comprehension. Check also:

Språkutveckling med karaktärer och oväntade slut med hjälp av Roald Dahl Roald Dahl skulle ha fyllt 100 år den 13 september. Det uppmärksammas på olika håll genom att flera av hans böcker ges ut på nytt och nyligen släpptes hans bok SVJ som spelfilm. På hans officiella hemsida RoaldDahl.com finns det lektionsupplägg som du kan använda i undervisningen och du hittar även en hel del upplägg som lärare i delar på hans fan site. Jag har tidigare arbetat med några av hans böcker. Jag delar kort med mig av två upplägg. 1.Revolting Rhymes Ett av de upplägg jag arbetat med är Revolting Rhymes, som är omskrivna klassiska sagor som många av oss känner igen som barn men som har helt oväntade slut. Stödstrukturer hjälper eleverna förstå och jämföra För att kunna jämföra använde jag mig av olika stödmallar som Venn-diagram. Jag använde upplägget i en årskurs sju som behövde mycket stöd då många var nybörjare i engelska. 2.Gestaltningar med Willy Wonka Ett annat tips är att använda Kalle och chokladfabriken för att träna gestaltning och hur man bygger karaktärer.
