Top 25 Jobs in Canada: A One Page Webquest

Top 25 Jobs in Canada: A One Page Webquest

Are you covering a work or employment theme in your classes? Have your students learn about the top 25 jobs in Canada, according to a popular media website! This one page (okay, one page double-sided) webquest directs your students to a popular website to answer questions about the top jobs in Canada. The website has been running this feature yearly for some time now, so you can be sure it will run for some time in the future. What does this webquest offer your students? It tackles the issue of “you can not be what you can not see’.” If you’re working with newcomers to Canada as I am, you’re probably aware that many of them simply don’t know what jobs are out there. Well, this webquest addresses that. It also works on the skills of following instructions, comprehending information, and reproducing information. It helps develop skimming skills and the ability to identify key information. Who is this webquest for? It’s primarily aimed at English language learners from CLB 2-4, but it could also be used in elementary school classes. It could also be used at higher levels: while the language is simple, the content is not. Anything I should know? Webquests require a lot of explicit guidance at first. When I start doing them, I usually take students the process of answering the first one or two questions, step by step. You can never be too obvious when showing students how to complete them. Anything else? For your convenience, an answer key has been provided. The web site has been confirmed active and in use as of 2018-04-15. Feedback is appreciated! :)

We All Need A Home. Talk about homes around the world.

We All Need A Home. Talk about homes around the world.

This beautifully illustrated story and the song which accompanies it were originally created for one of my ESL programmes but you will find them just as useful for younger English-speaking primary students. Learn about the different homes that children live in around the world, encourage empathy and kick-start a class project about how other people live. Illustrations by Maria Tarrago and design by Eva Morell.
