Let's read together! - Billy Elliot - Mia Smith
Jag är ingen litteraturmänniska. Jag vet inte hur många gånger jag sagt dessa ord. Under lärarutbildningen valde jag i största möjliga utsträckning de kurser som fokuserade på lingvistik, snarare än litteratur. Är det för att jag inte tycker om att läsa? Oh, nej, jag älskar böcker! Men jag tror att jag är rädd att inte komma in på djupet i texterna riktigt så mycket som jag skulle vilja. Inom ramen för läslyftet arbetar jag och mina kollegor just nu med modulen Samtal om text. En kollega upplyste mig om att vi hade en klassuppsättning av en enkel version av Billy Elliot. Boken är en så kallad easy reader på nivå 3. Läsning Eleverna fick, efter att jag läst på ordentligt inom ramen för Läslyftet, skriva läsloggar, där de svarar på frågorna enskilt. I koppling till detta har jag också visat korta snuttar ur filmen och från musikalen som är baserad på filmen. Skrivande Projektet är ännu inte avslutat. Muntlig presentation Så, kunde jag gjort annorlunda? Ämnesövergripande tankar kring läsning

SimmonsAll Rights Reserved. 1 WORKSHEET – 10 GAMES Make drilling more meaningful and fun. All you need is a sheet of paper. This post shows how the use of game mechanics can help a teacher design better drilling activities and turn repeated practice of target grammar or vocabulary into a cognitively engaging exercise. Focus on the material to be practised and learning outcomes for your group of students: e.g. irregular verbs It is essential to clearly see the ‘why’ in terms of language learning and use games and game techniques as a means to an end, rather than for their own sake. Bringing a game from the external world, without adapting it to learners’ needs and expected learning outcomes, may be just a waste of time (and money, if the game requires numerous handouts) in terms of learning.

Homebuilt pickups and trailer hitches: How underage teens skirt the law to drive in Photos by the author.
