WEBQUEST BERLIN

WEBQUEST BERLIN

Students will complete a general knowledge quiz prior to investigating Berlin. The idea behind the quiz is not to demonstrate a lack of student knowledge, but rather to show how varied the history of a particular monument, building or site can really be. The quiz in section 1 along with the questions in section 2 will help build a general overview of Berlin and aid them in their choice for their presentation. These sections will hopefully highlight curiosities rather than just the basic facts about the city, which may be helpful in the presentation phase. In the presentation phase students should be encouraged to present minimal written text on their slides. They are taking the role of a tour guide and should try to develop a presentation to reflect this. They should be reminded that the best tour guides weave a story rather than presenting just the basic facts. They should draw on sections 1 & 2 for ideas of the type of curiosities which might appeal to tourists. The strictness of the presentation guidelines can be decided by the individual teacher, taking into consideration the ability and knowledge of their students. Note though this is primarily designed for students who are older and have a good command of ‘English’ it can be modified for native speakers as well as those students who are learning about Germany and who are studying German. Student should be encouraged to cite sources and provide a bibliography.

EDEXCEL GCSE English language - paper 1 question 4

EDEXCEL GCSE English language - paper 1 question 4

This session explores structural features for paper 1 , question 4 of the EDEXCEL GCSE English exam by looking at an extract of Margret Atwoods The Handmaids Tale. This lesson is quick paced, engaging and exciting which explores human rights and human rights violations. This lesson helps to expose students to events that have and are taking place around the globe and to encourage awareness and tolerance, therefore embedding equality and diversity but also British Values. This is a great lesson to invite youth workers to attend and help support activities and group discussions as they can bring another dimension to this topic, therefore encouraging cross school or college participation in English and encouraging a holistic approach to education. Students work in groups and pairs to break down and examine the extract, they explore ideas of culture and individuality whilst also looking at the ways the Margret Atwood uses structural features to communicate atmosphere and repression to her audience. The lesson ends with a practice question, peer marking and a small self assessment plenary. The lesson comes with the full extract, powerpoint of the entire lesson, worksheets and two videos, one exploring human rights and the other is the trailer for The Handmaids Tale. I used to teach in a college where lessons came in 3 hour blocks therefore there is enough material for 3 hours in this resource, but it can be altered into smaller sessions depending on your timetable. Please note that TES previews an at times distort the look of the resource but this is not a true reflection. Hope it helps.

The World News Crossword - August 12th, 2018

The World News Crossword - August 12th, 2018

The World News Crossword - August 12th, 2018 is a 6-page PDF document made up of 4 puzzles based on the events of last week’s news. It’s a quick and simple process to download the resource and it can be stored on a flash drive ready for printing. The World. News Crossword puzzle usually takes a class about 30-45 minutes to complete, leaving some time for discussion on some of the more interesting news stories. The puzzle seems to work best when done in pairs or small groups, to generate discussion. The goal of course is to have students learning more about the world around them, and to prompt them to ask questions, especially ‘why…?’ All for just £2. What’s in this week’s document? (1) A crossword based on the events of last week’s news, (2) A crossword about Burkina Faso because it was in the news last week because of a malaria/bed-net trial that appears to have reduced the infection rate of malaria by 12%, (3) A crossword all about Climate Change, because it’s always in the news despite what Australia’s agriculture minister said, (3) And a crossword about Julius Caesar that can be shared with an English teacher. It’s included because in last week’s news there was a bit of a performance in front of the Trevi Fountain in Rome. All for just £2. So what happened last week? Australia’s agriculture minister said that the drought affecting almost all of Australia has nothing to do with man-made climate change. Excessive monsoon rain caused deaths, wide-spread displacement, and property damage in Kerala. The Swiss government announced measures to help farmers affected by the drought which has been caused by the heatwave in Europe. Two trucks crashed on the highway near Bologna in Italy, a plane crashed near Seattle, and another plane crashed in Indonesia - and a 12 year old boy survived. There was a magnitude 6.2 aftershock near Lombok Island, also in Indonesia. Brazil closed its border to Venezuelans. Singapore trialled eye-scans at its border. And speaking of borders, it seems (based on surveys) that at least 100 constituencies in Britain that previously voted to leave the EU would now vote to remain in the EU. A German man called the police because he was being chased by a baby squirrel. (Tyranny comes in many forms.) In France, crows were trained to collect cigarette butts and exchange them for food. And Christopher Robin was banned from China (the movie, not the boy) - something to do with Winnie the Pooh. All that (and three bonus puzzles) for just £2.

THE 13-YEAR-OLD GIRL SENT ON A 'DAY-TRIP' TO AUSTRALIA

This was an article originally found on the BBC, however, I have edited and changed the text a little to make it easier for non-native English speakers. I have added footnotes with the French translations. You could easily edit this to change to the appropriate language or simply delete the footnotes. This is accompanied by comprehension questions and a true or false activity that I created to check understanding of the article. This also goes with a flipchart I created on the early history of Australia which can be purchased on my page. My students really enjoyed reading this text as they were curious about the plight of Pamela and felt really sorry for her and what she, along with other unfortunate children, had to go through. Any feedback regarding how I have created the questions would be great!

The text is still quite difficult though, so not for low ability classes! My students’ level is approximately B1-B2. Later I am going to upload more powerpoints on all things Australia. I created my own true or false and comprehension questions to go along with the text. I have also created footnotes with French translations for some difficult words; however, you could simply edit these words to the appropriate language or just delete the footnotes! Any feedback appreciated.

A basic guide to The Commonwealth (2018)

This is an introduction to The Commonwealth. It was originally created for middle school students in France with a level of approxinately B1. So I have purposely made the language quite simple. It has been updated for 2018: with the inclusion of The Gambia returning after leaving and the news that Prince Charles will be taking over The Queen as head (when she dies). I have created a Powerpoint for the teacher to be shown on the overhead projector, one to be printed out to give to the students with fewer slides (optional). I usually choose the option 4 slides per page when printing, so I don’t print out too many pages. There is also an activity to answer questions on the powerpoint which could be started in class then finished for homework, then a class test to be done on a different day. If you prefer you can skip the **each one, teach one **activity.

(This puzzle is taken from our soon-to-be-released book, ‘Women who changed the world’.) **What happened in last week’s news? ** The EU fined Google for being very naughty and also signed a free trade agreement with Japan making trade easier.

China’s President went to Africa and the first commercial flight between Eritrea and Ethiopia occurred. Two Dutch men were arrested when they were caught on a boat with 2 tonnes of cocaine in the English Channel and French man was released from an Indonesian prison after 18 years for drug-smuggling.
