Provfri matematik – bedömning i praktiken Om eleverna ska bedömas på något, måste de få en rimlig chans att öva på det. En aspekt som ska bedömas i NO är om eleven har kunskap om biologiska sammanhang och visar det genom att ge exempel på och beskriva/förklara och visa på samband inom dessa/förklara och visa på samband inom dessa och något generellt drag. Tror du att eleverna vet vad ett biologiskt sammanhang är? Eller sambanden inom dem? Vet de ens vad ett samband är? Det slog mig första gången jag skulle bedöma detta, att eleverna aldrig fått öva upp denna förmåga. Eleverna behövde tre saker: ett anteckningsblock, biologiboken och ett gem. Steg 1 Vi öppnade det uppslag i boken som vi skulle läsa. Steg 2 I anteckningsboken slog de upp ett tomt uppslag. Steg 3 Vi började med att ringa in alla stycken som fanns på uppslaget.

Steg 5 Då blev det dags för SAMBAND. Steg 6

12 songs to practice the pronunciation of -ED endings - Luiz Otávio Barros As you know, the “-ed” endings of regular past tense verbs can be pronounced in three different ways: /t/, /d/ and /ɪd/, which is the one most students tend to overuse. Click here for an overview of the rules. Over the years, I have found that /t/ and /d/ are easier to notice and to produce if the verb comes immediately before a word beginning with a vowel sound: liked it – /laɪktɪt/dreamed of – /driːmdəv/ To help students get their tongues around the two sounds, I usually ask them to move /t/ and /d/ to the front of the vowel sound. This makes it obvious that there’s no room for /ɪ/: liked it – /laɪk tɪt/dreamed of – /driːm dəv/ Out of all the ideas and techniques I’ve used in class, this has probably been the most effective. So I decided to put together a 7-minute video containing 12 song excerpts you can use to help your students notice how /t/ and /d/ are linked to the vowel sounds that follow. By the way, if the video is out of synch, go back to the beginning and / or refresh the page.
