EFLshorts | Short stories for EFL learners Läsförståelsestrategier på svenska och engelska Att arbeta med läsförståelsestrategier är inget nytt för svensklärare, men tack vare det utvidgade kollegiet sprids många bra varianter för att förtydliga och synliggöra detta arbete. Som språklärare har jag inte fått någon formell utbildning kring detta, så inspirationen för min del kommer från nätet. Jag har tittat på de jättetydliga filmerna som Susanne Nystedt har gjort, kollat in Josef Sahlins sida, kikat in på En läsande klass och läst Annika Sjödahls tydliga beskrivningar. Grunden för dessa strategier ligger hos Barbro Westlund och hennes bok Att undervisa i läsförståelse. Det jag har gjort är att jag har gjort sammanfattningar av de olika strategierna med hjälp av att förutspå – to predict att ställa frågor – to ask questions inre bilder – inner images att reda ut oklarheter – to clarify att sammanfatta – to summarize

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area 25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another. Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does. Science content can often by full of jargon, research citations, and odd text features. Social Studies content can be an interesting mix of itemized information, and traditional paragraphs/imagery. Literature? This all makes reading strategies somewhat content area specific. But if you’d like to start with a basic set of strategies, you could do worse than the elegant graphic above from Looking for related curricula ideas? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.

Themework | INTRODUCTION Sist jag arbetade med LondonTourGuide gjorde jag enligt följande: Först tittade vi bl.a. på en film från Sedan gjorde vi en gemensam tankekarta med innehållet från filmen. utifrån den valde vi fem sevärdheter/platser som vi arbetade vidare med. Det var London Eye, Big Ben, Hyde Park, Madame Tussauds, Jack the Ripper och The Underground. Vi läste på om de olika platserna och formulerade egna texter med hjälp av 5-10 stödord. Alla fick dessutom samma presentationstext med några tomma luckor i att fylla i och lära sig utantill. Vi gjorde också en egen karta över guideturens olika stopp. Den här gången kommer jag att arbeta lite annorlunda med texterna.

Inferences Worksheets | Ereading Worksheets Making inferences is a skill with which students often need much practice. If you’ve looked for resources in the same places that I have, you probably haven’t been too happy with what you found. I believe that the inference worksheets that I’ve created are of a higher quality than the other available resources and, as usual, I’m giving them away for free. In each inference worksheet students are asked to do two things: answer questions where the solutions can only be provided by making logical inferences, and explain how they got their answers. Inferences Worksheet 1 – Read the passages and then answer the inferential questions. Inferences Worksheet 2 – Read the passages and answer inferential questions. Inferences Worksheet 3 – Here’s another inference worksheet to give your students that practice that they need. Students must read between the lines to make inferences. Inferences Worksheet 4 – Here is another high-quality inference worksheet. ELA Standards: Literacy

Stödstrukturer och bildstöd - mallar att sätta upp i klassrummet För elever som har svårt för att skriva och uttrycka sig begripligt på engelska använder jag mig ofta av stödstrukturer och bildstöd. Det går inte att bara säga till eleverna att de ska skriva utan jag måste undervisa dem om hur texten ska se ut och hur de skriver den på engelska. Jag utgår från genrepedagogik och cirkelmodellen när det gäller att träna eleverna i tal och i skrift. Jag tycker att det bästa är om du kan samarbeta med svenskläraren så att du på engelsklektionerna skriver samma texttyp som de arbetar med i svenskan. Mina elever som har svårt för att skriva börjar väldigt enkelt. När eleverna har kommit längre i sin skrivutveckling använder jag en mer utvecklad mall som de också tar del av hemma och iförväg. Nedan har jag bifogat några stödstrukturer som du kan använda när eleverna ska skriva olika texter. Frågorna i bilden ovan är ursprungligen från Annikas blogg och finns där på svenska. / Sara

William Shakespeare William Shakespeare (/ˈʃeɪkspɪər/;[1] 26 April 1564 (baptised) – 23 April 1616)[nb 1] was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist.[2] He is often called England's national poet, and the "Bard of Avon".[3][nb 2] His extant works, including collaborations, consist of approximately 38 plays,[nb 3] 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and a few other verses, some of uncertain authorship. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.[4] Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1589 and 1613.[6][nb 4] His early plays were primarily comedies and histories, which are regarded as some of the best work ever produced in these genres. Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime. Life Early life London and theatrical career Later years and death man Plays

How British English and American English are Different | Grammarly Blog Many Americans who love tea would turn up their noses at the idea of adding milk to it. Brits, on the other hand, are known for lacing their strong tea with milk. With or without milk, tea is tea.

Spelling One man is responsible for many of the spelling differences that exist between American and British English.
