Text 1.What is... Oxford City Council praised for introducing gender neutral 'MX' title on paperwork One of the country’s biggest councils has been praised for introducing gender neutral titles on forms. Oxford City Council told The Independent it has approved plans to include ‘Mx’ as an option on paperwork, alongside traditional terms such as Miss, Ms, Mrs and Mr. The change was made following recommendations from the council’s Equality and Diversity Group as a means of making the council more trans-inclusive; including non-binary people who can prefer the ‘Mx’ title as it does not denote a gender. Councillor Tom Haynes, Vice-Chair of Oxford City Council Scrutiny Committee told The Independent: “The council’s workforce has been changing to look more like the diverse communities that it serves. LGBT advocates have welcomed the move and say they hope it helps encourage other councils and institutions to embrace the ‘Mx’ title. “More and more organisations are adopting the gender neutral title 'Mx' in a similar way to the now commonplace 'Ms'.

5 TED-Ed Lessons for book lovers When did novels stop being novel? Do comic books belong in school? How do you make a pop-up book, anyway? If you love books, then this playlist is for you. Watch the 5 TED-Ed Lessons below: 1. More than a century after first emerging into the fogbound, gaslit streets of Victorian London, Sherlock Holmes is universally recognizable. 2. What makes a book a book? 3. Reading and stories can be an escape from real life, a window into another world — but have you ever considered how new fictional experiences might change your perspective on real, everyday life? 4. In ‘The Pangaea Pop-up’ Lesson, animator Biljana Labovic decided the best way to illustrate moving, shifting tectonic plates was to use a physical object that could also move and shift. 5. Writing a great English paper can be tough because literature doesn’t always reveal its deeper meanings immediately.

Kickstarta läsåret med strategier - Mia Smith Ingen slöjdlärare skulle beordra eleverna att såga utan att först gå igenom hur man använder sågen på bästa sätt, eller beordra eleverna att använda symaskinen utan att först lära eleverna hur man hanterar alla spakar och rattar. I språkundervisningen har vi inga sågar eller symaskiner, men vi använder verktyg. Och även vi måste lära eleverna att använda verktygen. De verktyg jag tänker på är våra språkliga strategier. Språkliga strategier har vi undervisat länge, och för den som vill födjupa sig vill jag rekommendera Lena Börjessons text Om strategier i engelska och moderna språk från Skolverket. En sammanfattning av de vanligaste icke-digitala strategierna jag undervisar. Men det finns nya strategier, och vare sig vi vill eller inte kommer eleverna använda dem. En sammanfattning av de vanligaste digitala strategierna jag undervisar. För att förtydliga vad som är viktigt att tänka på när man använder dessa verktyg har jag gjort en presentation med de viktigaste bitarna.

Fall in Love with This Teacher’s Text-Marking Activity | Scope Ideabook Editor’s Note: Kim O’Bray’s colorful text marking activity is a key part of her close-reading process. Students engage deeply with the text by using colored pencils to mark everything from figurative language and unfamiliar vocabulary to central ideas and text structures. I really like this text-marking approach because it gets everyone on the same page and encourages students to ask questions and make their own connections. It works wonderfully with any nonfiction text. At the beginning of the year, I model each step for my students, especially for my 6th graders who are new to text-marking. What you’ll need: Any Scope nonfiction article. Key skills:finding text evidence, central ideas, text structure, figurative language, vocabulary, synthesizing, summarizing Time:Three, 45-minute class periods Day 1: Preview and summarize Preview the vocabulary that appears in the article by distributing the vocabulary words and definitions handout. Set a purpose for reading. Day 2: Text mark and discuss

The full transcript of Michelle Obama's powerful New Hampshire speech | US news My goodness! You guys are fired up! Well, let me just say hello everyone. Let me start by thanking your fabulous governor, your next US senator, Maggie Hassan. And, of course, thanks to all of you for taking the time to be here today. Audience member: We love you! Thanks so much. So I’m going to get a little serious here, because I think we can all agree that this has been a rough week in an already rough election. See, on Tuesday, at the White House, we celebrated the International Day of the Girl and Let Girls Learn, and it was a wonderful celebration. So I thought it would be important to remind these young women how valuable and precious they are. The fact is that in this election, we have a candidate for president of the United States who, over the course of his lifetime and the course of this campaign, has said things about women that are so shocking, so demeaning that I simply will not repeat anything here today. And I have to tell you that I can’t stop thinking about this.

Arbeta språkutvecklande med hjälp av Storybird När vi hade planeringsdag på skolan gick programmet i språkets tecken. En kollega startade upp sitt försteläraruppdrag med inriktning ”språkutvecklande arbetssätt”, vi såg på skolverkets film ”Språk – och kunskapsutvecklande arbete” som en upptakt till fortsatta diskussioner kring hur vi arbetar på vår skola. Vi diskuterade bl.a. hur elevernas språkliga förmågor ser ut hos eleverna, vilka förväntningar vi har på eleverna och hur vi kan undvika att missta oss på elevernas språkförmåga då de t.ex. trots allt har ett rikt vardagsspråk. Vi funderade även över hur vi, i våra olika verksamheter såsom fritids, förskoleklass och skola arbetar språkutvecklande med våra elever och gav praktiska exempel utifrån de olika verksamheterna. Efter filmen, de efterföljande diskussionerna och en kaffepaus var det min tur att på ett mer praktiskt sätt visa hur du kan arbeta språkutvecklande med hjälp av Storybird. Storybird är ett verktyg som lockar ”elever” i alla åldrar. Storybird i förskoleklass

5 ESL Emergency Lessons Picture this: It’s 8am Monday morning, you’re fast asleep, snuggled in your duvet, enjoying a rare day off. Life is wonderful! Suddenly you are jolted back into reality by a phone call…from work… asking you to sub a class in 30 minutes. I adapted this idea from a seminar by Michael Swan and have used it many times in class successfully. Draw a picture frame on the board. Ask students to describe the picture inside (there is none, they must use their imagination). Once the students have come up with a full description of the picture ask them to recap and then put them into small groups. In groups, students write a creative story about the picture. Students can either display their written work on the walls for other students to read or you can encourage students to read their stories aloud. This gives students a chance to practice stress and intonation in questions. Think of 5-7 general questions that students can discuss, for example: What are you going to do tonight?
