Video: Poulty farming - the rearing farm

Video: Poulty farming - the rearing farm

In this video you will see chickens being reared to lay eggs. This is the beginning of the production of chicken for restaurants, shops and supermarkets. Chicken production begins at a rearing farm. The rearing farm produces a healthy flock of birds to lay eggs which will be sent to a hatchery. A range of breeds are reared on the farm. One day old chicks are brought to the farm and are fed a special diet, along with water. The birds are weighed regularly to keep an eye on their health. The birds are also given medicine to protect them from diseases.The health and welfare of the chickens is very important to the farmer. To keep the chickens healthy the workers wear protective clothing, change and clean their boots and clean their hands. The birds and the equipment are checked at least three times a day to make sure the chickens are being kept in good conditions. Suitable for children aged 8-11 years of age.

The Old Man and the Sea: Reading & Writing materials

The Old Man and the Sea: Reading & Writing materials

I designed these materials to go along with the novella to help Second Language Learners who are studying the First Language course using the Cambridge CIE and Oxford AQA exam boards. This was their first real exposure as to how they would deal with language, imagery, tone, inference etc. and use the skills they were taught in previous lessons. The materials can be used over multiple lessons or as a longer holiday homework (my students had a 4 week holiday in which to complete the assignments). There are 9 tasks connected to the reading of the book; 5 are shorter and 4 are longer. It is obviously up to the teacher how to use the materials, but either pack can be set as homework or classwork and for individuals, pairs or groups. Both the short and long tasks are closely combined with the 15 ppts attached as part of this resource. The resources are as follows: Short 1: Author’s biographical details (set as classwork or homework) Short 2: Why was the book written? (as above) Short 3: First impressions of the book (as above) Short 4: Vocabulary and interesting techniques found in the book (as above) Short 5: Character biography of Santiago (as above) All of these exercises can be found on the ppts Handout 1: What have you learned about the protagonist of the story? Handout 2: Pick an interesting passage and annotate, comment on vocabulary etc. Handout 3: Personal reflection on reading the book Handout 4: Change part of the story Also found on ppts. These responses are only suggested answers to the set questions; you and your students could obviously supply different but equally relevant answers. My students did find it challenging but they did enjoy it. It definitely gave them a new insight into how the English language can be used to convey many different ideas and images.

EAL for Secondary Students - Workbook 2

EAL for Secondary Students - Workbook 2

EAL for Secondary Students (Workbook 2) directly addresses the unique academic needs facing students who arrive in the UK with little or no English. Beginning with first principles and slowly advancing to high order thinking skills, EAL for Secondary Students (Workbook 2) ensures that the student will develop an effective understanding of English. The tremendous advantage of this resource is that the student will immediately become fully included in the learning process. At the end of each unit, the student can record the progress they have made by completing the user friendly self-assessment sheet. EAL for Secondary Students (Workbook 2) is a student-centred resource which enables the student to be actively engaged in developing skills that are required in an academic environment. The teacher can witness and monitor the steady progress the EAL student is making towards becoming an independent learner. EAL for Secondary Students (Workbook 2) allows the teacher the flexibility to select appropriate topics. EAL for Secondary Students (Workbook 2) can, also, be used as an excellent Induction programme. When it is necessary and appropriate to withdraw students from mainstream classes, this is a systematic self-contained resource that enhances language development and activates confidence in the student. EAL for Secondary Students Workbook 2 contains over 80 pages of excercises.

A JOURNEY ACROSS THE USA

A JOURNEY ACROSS THE USA

I have regularly used this puzzle-solving activity as an ice-breaker at the beginning of the academic year and it works particularly well with 11th graders. It can also be used if you are studying the USA. Students have to solve riddles to discover American states and cities while drawing their itinerary on a map. The activity also enables them to clarify some common confusions (for example, distinction between New York State and NYC). Usually, it takes most students about 50mins to cover the whole activity. The answer key is provided.
