You then make some true or false (maybe not mentioned too) statements in the target language about what you said in your account. 2. Pupils work in small groups.

Here are my choices, and I hope readers will let me know if they agree, disagree, and/or think I've missed some (one key requirement is that they are all free to use). Some of the sites I list could go in multiple categories, but I have placed them in the "domains" I believe they help the most: Obviously, The British Council has tons of great resources. I particularly like their animated Short Stories. I'm obviously biased, but I think the weekly student interactives I create for The New York Times are very useful to English Language Learners. The Reading and Everyday Life activities from GCF LearnFree are excellent. Mrs.

Six Word Stories Come imparare e studiare meglio con i lapbook Il lapbook è uno strumento dinamico e coinvolgente, che può essere pensato come una mappa concettuale tridimensionale da costruire in itinere man mano che si affronta un argomento durante le lezioni o come strumento di sintesi da realizzare una volta completata la trattazione di un tema. Il lapbook diventa insieme quaderno (dove raccogliere gli appunti), libro di testo (dove approfondire e trovare informazioni) e strumento di verifica con il quale valutare una vasta gamma di abilità: di ricerca, di progettazione, di sintesi, grafiche, ecc.
