Film Links
Until quite recently it was difficult to find pedagogically sound film material to help students improve their language through watching film, and teachers had to spend many hours creating their own materials. However, with the advent of the Internet there are now a wealth of online resources for both language teachers and their students. With so many resources it’s sometimes difficult for teachers to see the wood for the trees. Here I’m going to recommend the sites and resources that from my own experience I have found most useful and engaging. Lesson plans There are many websites and blogs which provide detailed and well-structured lesson plans designed around film and television clips, short films and viral videos which save the busy teacher a lot of time. Film in Action – Kieran Donaghy’s blog which accompanies his methodology book Film in Action showcases and extends some of the tasks found in the print edition. Allat C – Related:  Inglés IV

United Kingdom HISTORY The first Britons (people who live in the United Kingdom) were the Picts, who arrived about 10,000 years ago. In the eighth century B.C., the Celts arrived from Europe and pushed the Picts north into Scotland. In A.D. 43, the Romans invaded and ruled for nearly 400 years. They built roads, bathhouses, sewers, and large villas. By the sixth century A.D., German peoples known as Angles, Jutes, and Saxons were moving into Britain. In 1485 the Welsh noble Henry Tudor claimed the English crown and became Henry VII, the first of five Tudor monarchs. By the 1800s, Britain was one of the most powerful nations in the world.

Un article de Wiki Agreg-Ink. Page en construction ( plan provisoire) Organiser sa classe en îlots consiste à regrouper les tables de façon à obtenir un îlot de quatre élèves assis les uns en face des autres. Afin que tous les élèves puissent voir le tableau, il faut disposer les îlots en biais. On peut projeter des images à l'aide d'un rétro ou d'un vidéo-projecteur sur n'importe quel mur de la classe, pas forcément au tableau. Quelques tables peuvent être laissées libres pour isoler les perturbateurs ou les élèves qui doivent rattraper un devoir par exemple. Cette méthode de travail de groupe est ancienne mais est revenue en force en France grâce à Marie Rivoire, qui a introduit une nouveauté: le travail en îlots bonifiés. Comment former les îlots ? Il y a plusieurs critères à prendre en compte pour former les îlots. Répartir les élèves perturbateurs sur des îlots différents. Avantages de la disposition en îlots Une meilleure circulation.

Seven Songs for Teaching Past Simple | English Lane I have created a list of songs, which are perfect for teaching Past Simple tense in English. All of the songs are relatively new and popular, so they would especially be suitable for teaching teenagers. While the primary goal would be teaching Past Simple, you can always add a few more exercises in order to work on vocabulary or grammar. Coldplay – Paradise Past Simple is often used for retelling the events that happened in the past. This song is perfect for illustrating this usage. Passenger – The Wrong Direction Seeing “When I was a kid…” at the beginning of the song lyrics, you know there has to be some Past Simple in there. Katy Perry – The One That Got Away Apart from teaching Past Simple, with verbs met, got, planned, had, made, said, etc. you can also teach would for talking about future from a time in the past (I would make you stay, I would be your girl). OneRepublic – Something I Need A very nice song with lots of different verb forms. Like this: Like Loading...
