Charles Dickens & A Christmas Carol Av en tillfällighet upptäckte jag att Dickens julberättelse A Christmas Carol finns tillgänglig digitalt i olika svårighetsnivåer, se länkar nedan. Som lärare brottas man ju ständigt med att plocka fram utmaningar till alla elever och med detta digitala material ges eleverna möjlighet att välja nivå och de kan också växla mellan olika nivåer. Oavsett så behandlas ju samma berättelse och läraren kan leda diskussioner där innehållet tolkas samt kopplas till Dickens liv och den tid berättelsen tillkom och utspelas i. Som start för hela arbetet genomförs en så kallad "blind Kahoot", det vill säga man gör en genomgång av ett nytt arbetsområde med hjälp av flervalsfrågor i Kahoot.
Four Excellent Sites for Online Dictations Oh boy. Does it bring back memories! Dictations! To be completely honest with you, I have mixed feeling as regards dictations. A day in the digital life of a teenager Alejandra: My name's Alejandra and I'm 13 and, like, on a daily basis, I’ll go on my phone in the morning and I’ll check my Instagram, Snapchat, KIK, Twitter, Tumblr, Vine. Go to school and then I come back, and I’ll use, like, go on Netflix and I’ll go in my room and listen to Pandora, Spotify. I’ll play on my Xbox, like, Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty and … that’s about it. If I would add up, like, all the time that I use, I think I would spend about seven to eight hours every day.
High-achieving teenagers Presenter: Next on the programme we have an interview with someone who has been writing a book about high-achieving teenagers. Welcome, Louise Hardy.Louise: Hi, it’s lovely to be here.Presenter: Louise, many of these teenagers who have achieved success and fame early on, have done so through using new technology, haven’t they? Through blogging or using YouTube or Twitter?Louise: Absolutely, and the greatest example of this is Justin Bieber. As I think everyone on the planet knows, he started off by posting videos on YouTube at the age of 14 and was spotted by a talent scout who worked with the R&B singer Usher. After that he very rapidly became a worldwide sensation.Presenter: I heard that last year he was said to be more influential than Obama!
The Heroes Unit: Subunit 1 – Qualities of a Hero and the Heroic Journey – The... This is a mammoth of a blog post, so I am going to split it up into three parts for your viewing pleasure.This unit is on Heroes with three subunits – fictional heroes, modern day heroes and personal heroes. You can go through it in about 2 -3 months. Do me a favour. Ask your students who their heroes are. How many of them can answer that? I was quite shocked when not very many students could identify a hero in their life or even someone to look up to.
Amazing facts A: Hey, I’m reading this really interesting article about the human body.B: Yeah? Well, we know all about that from biology lessons.A: No, we didn’t learn much at all at school! They’re discovering loads more things all the time. Really amazing things! Did you know that only about one tenth of the cells in your body are really you? The rest are bacteria.B: What? The Heroes Unit: Subunit 2 – Modern Day Heroes – The Canswedian English Teacher Subunit 2: Modern day Heroes The purpose with this assignment is forcing students to get outside of their own backyards and hopefully get a little inspiration. There are so many role models out there that students are not aware of. The next step in this heroes unit is talking about present day heroes. I have four biographies I use: Malala, Aung San Sun Kyi, Mandela and Terry Fox. They are modern day badasses in my opinion.
Taking a call from Obama – a video EFL/ESL lesson + worksheet – Vicki Hollett There’s so much interest in the US election candidates!

Hero Subunit 3: Three Paragraph Essay on a Personal Hero – The Canswedian Eng... Subunit 3: Three paragraph essay on a personal hero. Ask the students to think about their personal hero, or someone they look up to. It could be a family member, singer, someone from history, whoever…It is mindblowing how many will say they don’t know. If they don’t have one – they can research. I showed a few people The White Helmets from Syria for example. One girl thought about her grandmother who was battling cancer.

This is Me – Grade 7 Unit – The Canswedian English Teacher I was so lucky this year, in that my Grade 7s walked into my English class bright eyed and bushy tailed – ready to go. One boy put up his hand on the first day and declared, “I want to learn English, because I want to go to California.” From what I’ve been told, this is the middle-class Swedish dream. You do you little man – you do you.
