Philosophy, whole lesson, currently used with EAL

Philosophy, whole lesson, currently used with EAL

I am a secondary teaching assistant and have recently been given a group of EAL students to work with. I have tried quite a few things so far with them, and have found philosophy to be something they particularly enjoy. As we are together for just one hour per week, I find this a useful way for them to engage with each other. Hope you you can make use of them.

AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES, THE STOLEN GENERATIONS

AUSTRALIAN ABORIGINES, THE STOLEN GENERATIONS

These two videos deal with Autralian Aborigines , a glimpse at their history and way of life, and the topic of the stolen generations. I have only used parts of the two videos (the times are clearly indicated on the worksheet). The first part of the worksheet deals with the general background; the second part deals more specifically with the official apology presented by the Autralian government to the Aborigines. Skills: oral comprehension oral expression The tasks are very guided to help weaker students since they may have trouble understanding the videos.

Arabic Words Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson English Origin

Arabic Words Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson English Origin

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Arabic Originated English Words’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!
