MEET ‘N’ GREET MINGLE BINGO (adaptable) Ice Breaker for the New Year/ Genetics Unit/ ESL Speaking

This ‘Mingle Bingo’ is a great ice- breaker for the start of the year. There are 25 spots on the card, each describing a physical attribute (such as green eyes), a capability (such as being able to lick your elbow!) or something specific about family and home (such as having a dog, or having two sisters). Students embark on a scavenger hunt to find someone in the class who fits that descripton. There are two slightly different Bingo cards (although they do have some of the same points on them) which could be used together with everyone randomly handed on or the other, or choose which you prefer according to what you know about characteristics within your class. The idea is that everyone mingles and asks specific each other questions. When students find someone who “ticks” one of the boxes on their sheet, that person writes their name down in the space provided. Each person can only be used once, so students have to use a little bit of tactical thinking about whose name to place where! For smaller classes adjust the game by giving students a certain number of boxes to fill in, or ask them to complete a row or two. The activity would also be great for use in a module on **Genetics **as many of the Bingo boxes ask about characteristics which are dominant and recessive genes The cards could also be used in an English as Second Language class in an activity about describing people.

EDEXCEL PAPER 2 QUESTION 7B - Sophie Lancaster

EDEXCEL PAPER 2 QUESTION 7B - Sophie Lancaster

This lesson is centered around the tragic story of Sophie Lancaster, who was murdered in 2007 for being a Goth. I have used this story over the last 10 years with all my classes as it helps to address prejudice and build tolerance. This session uses the Story of Sophie to introduce question 7B to students. It does this by breaking question 7B into two and only looking at the writers views and perceptions part of the question rather than the comparison part, as I have found in my experience that diving straight into comparing two texts tends to stress and confuse students. This session has enough material to cover 3 hours but has optional tasks and can be altered to suit you or your classes needs, session time and sensitivity levels. It comes with 10 worksheets, a video and full powerpoint with starters, team tasks, individual tasks, plenary, question 7B breakdown, group discussion and homework which focuses on section B of Paper 2. I have found that over the years that this lesson is diverse. It has been used in tutorials outside of the English department and by youth workers when delivering their sessions. I usually invite support workers and youth workers when delivering this session to help support any students for who this may bring up memories or for them or to help students overcome any of their own prejudices. Because of this sessions holistic and cross college appeal it was a big hit with managers and Ofsted. Hope it helps.

ESL with Emotional Intelligence

ESL with Emotional Intelligence

The author has kindly given us permission to release this version of her book fro FREE during Ramadan. She has been a teacher, trainer and an academic coordinator in the English Language department for a prestigious University. Her latest training program has been accreditted by Ofqal as a level 5 Diploma. This latest work is a unique way to support people acquiring the English language. The key to successful English language is reading and writing. One of the struggles with ESL students is an intrinsic awareness of not wanting to look foolish when speaking another language. Writing journals are a great way to get a student engaged in the art of writing. What strengthens this process is when the writing is relatable and supports the development of the individual. The journals cater for ESL students with prompts related to the four intelligences, making it easy for them to write and minimising the effective filter. The journals are an excellent source for differentiated teaching and self-learning, as the subject matter is the most popular one amongst nearly all students…. Themselves. Suad Mohamed
