Below, a short poetry reading list for TED-Ed learners of all ages.

Jamie Oliver Hamburger Chef Jamie Oliver Proves McDonald’s Burgers “Unfit for Human Consumption” Hamburger chef Jamie Oliver has won his long-fought battle against one of the largest fast food chains in the world – McDonalds. After Oliver showed how McDonald’s hamburgers are made, the franchise finally announced that it will change its recipe, and yet there was barely a peep about this in the mainstream, corporate media. Oliver repeatedly explained to the public, over several years – in documentaries, television shows and interviews – that the fatty parts of beef are “washed” in ammonium hydroxide and used in the filling of the burger. Besides the low quality of the meat, the ammonium hydroxide is harmful to health. “Why would any sensible human being put meat filled with ammonia in the mouths of their children?” In one of his colorful demonstrations, Oliver demonstrates to children how nuggets are made.

Vi skapar #BlackOutPoetry Vi har tjuvstartat skapandet av BlackOutPoetry, ett tema som jag tänkte ha till hösten egentligen. Jag har tre nior som ville göra något kreativt sista veckorna. De som är klara med sina uppgifter har fått några exempel i korridoren att inspireras av: Elevexemplena är gjorda i förra veckan av några elever (och en av mig) och nu sitter där även en faktatext bredvid om vad BlackOutPoetry är för något. Eleverna kan läsa följande: BlackOutPoetry – ett kreativt sätt att få igång skapandet av egna dikter BlackOutPoetry innebär att man använder redan skrivna ord och gör dikter av dem. När man skapar BlackOut Poetry börjar man med att ringa in de ord man vill ha kvar så de bildar en dikt. Den som sägs ha startat dikterna är en man vid namn Austin Kleon. Idag finns hashtagen #blackoutpoetry för att samla de dikter som delas i sociala medier. Vill du veta mer?

Teenagers and UK culture Why bring UK culture to the teen classroom? We can introduce UK culture into the English classroom to help our students improve their English and at the same time learn about values and ways of doing things which may be different to theirs. Learning about life and culture in the UK can be very motivating as it brings the language alive for learners and creates a link between language and real life. See if you agree with these comments from teachers on teaching UK culture to their teenage learners: ‘We need to avoid reinforcing erroneous British stereotypes to our teenagers. Not everyone in the UK is very formal and drinks tea at five o’clock!’ ‘Culture is the fifth skill in addition to reading, writing, listening and speaking. ‘I try to make British culture "real" to my students. What materials can I use to introduce UK culture? Life in the UK In this section teenagers can read about topics with a British connection. Learning the language doesn’t automatically mean learning the culture.
