Träna de fyra färdigheterna i engelska med hjälp av skönlitteratur På engelska 6 bestämde klassen och jag att vi skulle inleda med att använda skönlitteratur för att träna de fyra färdigheterna. Här kommer början på ett upplägg där jag också passar på att använda klassiker från den anglo-saxiska litteraturen eftersom ämnesplanens centrala innehåll nämner "[t]eman, motiv, form och innehåll i [...] skönlitteratur; författarskap och litterära epoker". Under de här första lektionerna tränade vi: lässtrategier (skapa förförståelse)textsamtal kring skönlitteraturarbete med ordkunskapLektion 1 Jag inleder med att fråga eleverna vad som krävs för en god horror story och skriver upp deras förslag på tavlan. Därefter skriver jag upp ett antal ord från Edgar Allans Poes novell "A Tell Tale Heart" på tavlan (mad, haunted, evil eye, caution, cunningly, midnight, mortal terror, shrieked, corpse, dismembered, police, heart) och ber eleverna fundera över vad som kanske kommer att hända i novellen. Dessa två övningar syftar till att aktivera elevernas förförståelse.

The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.  Alla… The world water crisis | LearnEnglish Teens - British Council Our bodies are as much as 60% water. All living things contain it and, like us, depend upon it for survival. Although 70% of the Earth is covered with water, a staggering number of the world’s poor lack even the most basic sanitation and access to clean water. 97% of the water on Earth is salt water. 2% is frozen in glaciers and ice caps. Only 1% is fresh water. 'Hmm, well, no bottled water, I guess. Every day, women around the world walk mile after mile to collect water for bathing, cooking, cleaning and for their families to drink. 'You can only go three days without water.' Countless hours spent searching or waiting in line. Every twenty seconds a child dies from a water-related illness like diarrhoea.

Trump seen as a child by staff, says Fire and Fury author Michael Wolff Media playback is unsupported on your device The author of a controversial book on Donald Trump says that all his White House aides see him as a "child" who needs "immediate gratification". Michael Wolff said his book was based on about 200 interviews, and rejected Mr Trump's claims that it was "phony". But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has dismissed suggestions made by Wolff that the president's mental health is failing. The book has now gone on sale early despite Mr Trump's attempts to stop it. Mr Trump's lawyers had tried to block publication of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, alleging it contained many falsehoods and saying they were considering pursuing libel charges. The president has said it is "full of lies" and was being pushed by the media and others to hurt him. On Friday, he refused to answer questions about the book as he departed for Camp David from the White House. What did Wolff say about his research? What is in the book? Will it actually hurt Trump?

Lesson Plan: A Picture-Based Activity to Enlarge Students’ Vocabulary on Trav... I’m really happy to introduce a guest writer to you. Maria Jose Díaz is a friend and fellow teacher from EOI Avilés and, in this blog post, she will be sharing with us an excellent communicative activity for C1 students based on pictures. María Jose also runs a blog Ingles en Aviles, which is really worth a visit. Once again I have to cover the topic of travelling with my C1 students. After racking my brains for a while I came up with this idea to help students talk about travelling from a different point of view. Aim: activating new vocabulary through class discussion and providing students with new ideas to talk about travelling. Level: C1 Materials: pictures of prehistoric people, explorers, missionaries, pilgrims, refugees and holidaymakers. Instructions: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Valet i USA - Färdig lyssningsövning för lärare i engelska Introduktion Ibland har jag lyssningsövningar som går ut på att eleverna får titta på ett videoklipp eller lyssna på en text samtidigt som de har texten nedskriven framför sig. Texten innehåller dock luckor och meningen är att eleven ska fylla i korrekt ord i luckorna. Jag brukar göra två versioner av manus - ett med lite färre och ett med lite fler luckor. Nedan får ni videoklipp, upplägg med instruktioner samt de dokument som behövs för att genomföra övningen. Videoklipp Upplägg Valbart: ha en kort uppstartsövning där eleverna får fundera över vad de redan vet om den amerikanska valprocessen, partierna och kandidaterna. Gå igenom nyckelbegrepp. Förklara övning. Dela klassen. Första lyssningen. Andra lyssningen. Anpassning: Ett sätt att göra övningen svårare är att bara köra ljud och inte bild.
