Facebook Addicts

Facebook Addicts

This lesson is based on an article that discusses addictions to social media. It is designed to mimic the Cambridge extended Language paper for Reading (papers 1 & 2: Core and Extended) and the Writing (paper 3). It uses one source text (as opposed to two for the reading and 1 for the writing paper). Initial activities are meant to help pupils access and understand the meaning of the text, whilst enhancing their vocabulary, whereas the later activities are replicas of the questions they would be asked in the Reading and then Writing exam. It could equally be used as the basis for a PSHE discussion regarding sensible use of social media.

Applying Visual Literacies in ESL Learning - Creating Stories about Place

Applying Visual Literacies in ESL Learning - Creating Stories about Place

This combined lesson and plan is designed for Intermediate ESL/EFL and ESOL learners who are ready to expand their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills through imagining different places. The associated activity includes visual texts (images), a series of questions to guide classroom interactions, and vocabulary for elicitation toward developing effective speaking and writing skills. This is a semi-structured activity where students are encouraged to draw on their own experiences of different places. The activity moves the student from being a visual spectator to being a textual critic. By learning in an independent but guided way students can better prepare for the independent learning expectations of tertiary or workplace learning. This resource can be adapted for a particular curriculum or used in a stand alone session of 2-4 hours.
