18 Animations of Classic Literary Works: From Plato and Shakespeare, to Kafka, Hemingway and Gaiman Yesterday we featured Piotr Dumala's 2000 animation of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s classic novel, Crime and Punishment, and it reminded us of many other literary works that have been wonderfully re-imagined by animators -- many that we've featured here over the years. Rather than leaving these wondrous works buried in the archives, we're bringing them back and putting them all on display. And what better place to start than with a foundational text -- Plato's Republic. We were tempted to show you a claymation version of the seminal philosophical work (watch here), but we decided to go instead with Orson Welles' 1973 narration of The Cave Allegory, which features the surreal artistic work of Dick Oden. Staying with the Greeks for another moment ... Eight years before Piotr Dumala tackled Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment, Dumala produced a short animated film based on The Diaries of Franz Kafka. Emily Dickinson's poetry is widely celebrated for its beauty and originality. E.B.

Att skriva en argumenterande text på engelska En argumenterande text går ut på att du ska övertyga dina läsare om att din åsikt är den rätta eller att du ska försöka få dina läsare att handla på ett visst sätt. Jag har valt att göra denna genomgång på svenska då flera av er uttryckt att ni (engelska år 8) tycker det blir alldeles för svårt annars. I förväg vill jag att ni har läst igenom detta inlägg och sett filmen. Lektionstid kommer vi arbeta med detta på engelska. Jag kommer att hjälpa er med ord och med exempel på hur det blir på engelska. Vi kommer först att skriva tillsammans i klassen och sedan när ni kan det skriver ni enskilt. Det finns en del som man måste tänka på för att texten ska bli bra: 1. 3. Exempel på fler bindeord hittar du här: Bindeord Du behöver också ha med ord som uttrycker dina egna och andras åsikter och känslor tex: I wish - jag önskar I feel - jag känner I dream of- jag drömmer om I hate - jag hatar I dislike - jag ogillar - Är rubriken intresseväckande? / Sara

Webbaserade ordbehandlare. Låt eleverna skriva när de inte vågar prata! - Rosana Månsson Genom att använda en webbaserad ordbehandlare satt jag igång en hel klass till att först skriva och sedan prata engelska inför hela klassen. Med mina engelskgrupper har vi tidigare jobbat med formella och informella brev samt med att skriva vykort på engelska. Efter att ha läst inledningen till en text i vår lärobok som löd: ”He promised to write long letters to his friends at home, telling them everything he did. Alla tittade på mig och ingen svarade. Vi skulle använda datorerna senare under samma lektion och när jag såg verktygen framför mig bad jag eleverna om att skriva anonymt sina åsikter på en webbaserad ordbehandlare, nämligen Meetingwords. Det stämmer väl med vad min ämnesspanare-kollega Helena Kvarnsell beskriver i sin bok, Digitalisering som lyfter skolan teori möter praktik (2015), om att skapa motivation: För att börja med tycker jag att det var utmärkt att eleverna kunde vara anonyma. Den är väldigt enkel och begränsad. Referenser: Diaz, P. (2014).

Mount Perception: Klassen övar upp sin förståelse i engelska Vid ett flertal tillfällen har jag i Facebook-gruppen Engelska 6-9 läst om kolleger som genomfört "30-day-challenge", där elever i 30 dagar ska genomföra olika aktiviter på engelska. Idén är enligt uppgift (se kommentar nedan) ett resultat av kollegialt samarbete och ursprungsidén kommer troligtvis från Emmeli Johansson men har sedan strukturerats upp av Mia Smith som presenterar sin version på bloggen Mias klassrum och jag har använt mig av delar av hennes upplägg. Under hösten 2014 läste jag en kurs vid Umeå universitet som heter Datorspel och lärande. Genom att spelifiera undervisningen kan man väcka mer engagemang och lust i lärandet men i skolarbetet är det viktigt att ingen blir utslagen, alla måste känna att de bidrar till framgången. Idéen grundar sig på att eleverna tillsammans under tre veckor ska bygga ett berg, Mount Perception, genom att genomföra olika hör- och läsaktiviteter. Själva berget tillverkade jag i Google Drive med Google Drawings.
