Hörförståelse med strategier som hjälp | Min undervisning Vi arbetar med hörförsteålse i min språkvalsgrupp, de elever som inte läser något språk, och programmet vi utgår från är News Reel Easy från UR. Programmet är ett par minuter långt och finns också i en svårare variant här. Eftersom jag har elever som inte når målen i engelska och många främst behöver träna på att lyssna så arbetar jag med strategier för att ge dem verktyg för att lyssna aktivt. Som ni ser är det samma upplägg med strategier som vid läsning och det ger dem en röd tråd av att strategier är tillämpbara vid många olika uppgifter. Vi gör så här: Förutspå: 1. 2. Reda ut oklarheter 3. 4. Ställer frågor och sammanfatta: 5. 6. 7.

Listening Comprehension – Toilet Training the Cat – Stuart McLean – The Canswedian English Teacher Last year, Canada lost a national treasure – Stuart McLean. He began his radio program The Vinyl Cafe in 1994, and to date has recorded more than 400 stories on CBC radio (Canadian Broadcast Company). It got to be so popular that he traveled throughout small town Canada with musical acts and shared his stories about Dave, Morley, Sam and Stephanie on the Vinyl Cafe with that old radio voice that captivated so many. Now, thanks to the wonder of Spotfiy – The Vinyl Cafe, I get to sit in my kitchen every Sunday morning with my coffee and become entranced once more… now it is even more special because sometimes my 8 year old daughter sits with me too. The Vinyl Cafe is perfect for higher level listening comprehension exercises. So here you go – Toilet Training the Cat .
