What are map projections? A geography CLIL / ESL lesson plan

What are map projections? A geography CLIL / ESL lesson plan

Key information: • Teaching geography in English at A2 to B1 level • Two 45-minute lessons • Student’s handouts + Teacher’s notes • English language support for both teacher and students Rationale: In these lessons, learners compare map projections to see how their view of the world can change. Learners will develop their understanding of how representing the world as a map, and how representing a 3D object as a 2D object causes distortions. The lesson provides a meaningful context to use comparatives, modals for possibility and certainty, and expressions of opinion. Content objectives: To compare and evaluate different map projections. Language objectives: To use long and short adjectives to compare different elements in a map and draw conclusions; to use modals to express possibility (could, might) and certainty (must, can’t); to use expressions of opinion such as 'I think', 'I feel', 'I suppose'. These lessons have been designed to support teachers’ and learners’ use of English in the following contexts: • bilingual education • Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) • English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) • Content-Based Instruction (CBI) • English as a Second Language (ESL) • English as a Foreign Language (EFL).

Welcome To The United Kingdom

Welcome To The United Kingdom

Stephen Fry has joined forces with Heathrow Airport to produce an extremely British advert which show exactly how strange this little island is with its love of queuing, the way Brits spend half their days saying 'after you' and how we clap when people break things. The more you think about it, the weirder we seem — and to top it all off, Fry explains all this from a nice old fashioned pub, where Brits (probably) spend more time than they do in the office (!) Your students task is to discuss why they think Stephen Fry was chosen to host such a welcome and choose the perfect candidate for a welcoming sequence they will write for your own country
