Listening Comprehension - Stranger Things 1x02

(0)
*** answer key included This is a listening comprehension for the 2nd episode of the first season of the Netflix series Stranger Things. The document is already formatted, so you only have to print the needed pages and makes copies. As always, the answer key is included. Finally, I have also included a creative writing journal for the students to complete either at school or at home. I have created listening comprehensions for other episodes of the series. The difficulty level of the listening comprehensions progresses as the series advances. It is therefore perfect to assess the progression of a student’s learning. Notes from my past experiences and my applied linguistics studies if this evaluation is intended for ESL/EFL learners: Linguistics and language acquisition studies show that active listening, such as completing a listening comprehension evaluation, benefits ESL learners much more than passive listening. It gives their listening a purpose and focuses students on trying to figure out the words and meaning. According to language learning studies, the use of authentic material (meant for first language) provides more benefits than adapted material. If possible, do not use subtitles when presenting a TV show or movie. My experience has shown me that students focus too much on reading the subtitles instead of trying to listen for understanding. Students may feel overwhelmed the first time but they will gain in confidence over time.

You can also create an entire unit from this bundle by having students use the transcripts of the last episodes of the first season and re-enacting the episodes. notes from my past experiences and my applied linguistics studies if this evaluation is intended for ESL/EFL learners: Linguistics and language acquisition studies show that active listening, such as completing a listening comprehension evaluation, benefits ESL learners much more than passive listening.

Practice Ministerial Examination -Secondary 5 ESL Core Program -Skilled for Life

(0)
TOPIC: Skilled for Life Based on material from previous ministerial examinations, this file is a practice ministerial examination for Quebec secondary 5 students who are part of the English as a Second Language, Core Program. The file includes a preparation booklet, a writing booklet, a final copy booklet and discussion questions. Basically, everything a teacher needs to get his or her students to practice, improve and get ready for the end-of-the-year ministerial examinations. This file is meant for Quebec secondary 5 students who are completing their English as a Second Language, Core Program. It duplicates what the students will have to accomplish for their final ministerial evaluation, meaning reading and learning about an assigned topic; then, discussing the assigned topic with other students; and finally, writing an argumentative essay about the topic. I use this document to help my student practice before their final examination. It reduces their stress and helps them understand what will be expected of them. In addition, it allows me to assess and mostly identify problematics students could encounter before their official ministerial examination. NOTE: Hand out the preparation booklet Allow a set time for students to read, fill out and mostly, learn about the topic at hand. ( I usually give them a few days) Have students discuss what they have read and learn about it the booklet. Students can share and discuss their answers to the various questions found within the preparation booklet. Divide students into groups of four and give each students two questions, taken from the discussion questions section of this file, which also includes an evaluation grid. Tell the students that they must discuss together using the assigned questions for at least 15 minutes. on a following period, pick up their preparation booklet (the ministry does not allow students to have access to their preparation booklet while writing their text) and hand out the writing and final copy booklets. Students should take no longer than 120 minutes to complete the writing task.
