Extreme Photo of the Week Photograph by Mike Schirf “I love the skiing down the best, but I don't love the skinning up,” says 11-year-old Lilliana Libecki, seen here with her dad, Mike, on their recent sailing-skiing expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula in front of Paradise Bay and a colony of Gentoo penguins. It was Lilliana’s very first expedition with her dad, a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Expeditions Council grantee, and veteran of 50-some remote expeditions. “I will never ever forget the skiing and icebergs and how curious and unafraid the penguins were,” Liliana says. When Mike returned from Antarctica in 2008 with photos of skiing and snowboarding on the continent, Lilli, then five years old, was inspired. “Finally when she was old enough, she started training for this goal in the backcountry and worked so hard to make this dream come true,” Mike says.

How to teach ESL with pictures - simply ieva Speaking and writing are the productive aspects of a language. They are also much more difficult to master because one needs to retrieve the information they already have and present it to the listener or reader. I see this all the time: a student says they studied English in their country for a number of years (sometimes it is five, six or more years) but when it comes to speaking English, they fall silent. They can crack grammar easily (sometimes, better than a native speaker), but they cannot find the words to express themselves in a simple conversation. As someone who learned English as a foreign language myself, I totally understand how it is. After all, learning and teaching grammar is something that can be easily measured by rules and completing worksheets. Conversation, on the other hand, is usually artificial at best. Until life brings them to an English speaking country. But how can we help the students become more motivated and self-confident in communicating in English?

Sniffer Dogs Helping humans in the fight against animal extinction. multiple uses of newspapers & magazines for ELT | TeachingEnglishNotes Newspaper fire orange (Photo credit: NS Newsflash) I love using real things for teaching English. By “real things” I mean something from real life – and not something specially developed for learning or teaching. That’s why I prefer usual movies (and not educational ones – they are hardly very exiting, most of the times, usual radio and not “special English” stations, and usual newspapers (not the ones for ESL learners). Talking about the newspapers, their use in class (and outside too) is limitless. Newspapers can be used for: jigsaw reading (in a group, assign each student a small extract, then ask them to report on their part and put all the parts into the right order/ for one-to-one putting the parts into the right order would also work greatly) reading-and–retelling-and-discussing (very close to real life – when you read a newspaper in your language, you would often discuss what you’ve read with your friends or colleagues) Like this: Like Loading...

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.

You Don’t Have to Be a #DigCit Expert… Use Images to Get Students Talking – Dr. Kristen Mattson You don’t have to be using the latest app or social media site to have conversations with your students about life online. Instead of shying away, provide your students a safe space to talk with you about their digital experiences. You can use images like the ones below (and hundreds of others linked here!) as a way to kick off the conversation. Need a few ideas for purposeful integration? For more great ideas for integrating digital citizenship in the classroom, check out my book: Digital Citizenship in Action (ISTE, 2017). Like this: Like Loading...
