Today the reading aloud of the HR declaration took up the whole lesson, and we didn’t even get to the end. I hope you can all finish reading it and comment next day, if you like. You can also feel free to exploit this activity as you like. You could also practice/practise speaking at home to put together a personal opinion of the document or the activity. If you record it in the mp3 audio format, you could send it to me for feedback.
I really enjoyed us talking a bit about some of the articles. I love reading in groups, and just talking, because lots of things come up that allow me to expand my world! I hope the activity was useful for you all, too, in this way. Remember to collect some useful language typically used in this kind of legal texts. And thanks so much for celebrating human rights today! ❤
The plan for today included watching a one-hour documentary. Considering the plan for next day is this:
Wednesday Dec 14
- Listening activity based on second viewing of the neuroscience documentary
- Time for Reading Groups / Contingency plan: working on UL from watching or talking about the documentary
Last week: Please, feel free to make requests or proposals!
… next day we’ll start with the documentary, adjusting to just note-taking instead of doing the listening activity, and depending on the time Reading Groups need, we’ll do or not do the listening activity, OK?
Check the overview of our upcoming lessons to express your preferences next day, OK?
I published your Aptos on the announcement board in class, and if you have any questions about feedback on your English please let me know. These Aptos are just saying you are following the course in some way. What’s important for assessment is the feedback I give you, the feedback you get from classmates when you communicate, and your own assessment.
- To ask any questions about the December writing assignment in class or here, under the post for that.
- To publish your mini sagas or other writings here, if you like.
- To listen to English every day and try retelling or listen-n-repeat. This is very important, OK?
- There are checked writings in our cardboard box in class.
- And to check out the Story of Stuff page above during the time we won’t have lessons!
