Just to clarify…

Part 1

  1. I ett gemensamt worddokument, skriv svaren på frågorna till varje låt + översättningen av glosorna. Maila sedan till mig via BUF.
  2. I ett eget worddokument, skriv sammanfattning av alla tre låtarna och maila sedan till mig via BUF.
  3. Arbeta nu enligt instruktionerna med din egen låt och skicka sedan till mig via Edwise. Glöm emellertid inte att först få feed-back på din text från din partner samt göra vissa förändringar/förbättringar utefter vad som blivit sagt.

Develop your descriptive writing

Here’s some tips on how to write descriptively. Develop your vocabulary, and challenge yourself to use other words than those you are most familiar with.

How to survive on a desert island

Here you’ll find some inspiration for chapter 3:

Survival guide

Also, watch the video below.

Desert Island

The students in class 8B are starting up a new project – Desert Island. For this project you will need a phone/ipad with which you can record shorter films and later e-mail them. I’ll check with you on Monday!

You will also need to pick a partner whom you’ll work closely with during the project. Choose wisely! Your partner will both assist you while filming and assess your work accordning to the peer assessment sheet you’ll be given in class.

Please watch the videos below, and also click on the link to access further information.

 

Teacher/student assessment

Your work will be assessed by both your teacher and a peer student.

The answers to the questions belonging to each song will be assessed by your teacher only and will be based on

  • how well you have developed the answers, and if your answers reflect the discussion that they are based on.
  • the language used (spelling, correct grammar, vocabulary)

Before you hand in your text, your peer assessor will make sure you have followed the instructions (title, why the song has a special meaning to you, and your summary of the lyrics). He/she will also take a look at the language you have used.

Your peer evaluator will also tell you two things he/she thinks you’ve done well, and one thing he/she thinks you have to develop – two stars and one wish

Different stories

Welcome back to school class 9B! After a slow, and fun, start it’s time to get started 🙂 Here you find the instructions for the next two weeks. Please read the instructions and bring any questions to class on Monday.

To complete the assignment you need to watch, and carefully listen to the lyrics of the songs below.

Best of luck!

Summer English practise

The long summer holiday is approaching fast and we are all excited to get some well deserved time of school/work! However, the holidays present you with an excellent opportunity to practise your English in a relaxed and, hopefully, enjoyable way. IF you happen to go on holidays abroad, make sure to speak English as much as possible. Order food, ask for directions, talk to that nice English speaking boy/girl by the pool…

And if you, like myself, spend most or all of your time within the borders of our beautiful Sweden, you can still pratise your English in one or two of the following ways:

  • READ a book (in English of course). Ask the library for a good book to lend, or ask me! You can also buy some really good value paper back books in English from Adlibris and Bokus.
  • LISTEN to some nice music in English while relaxing at the beach or in the hammock. Think! What are the lyrics about?
  • And for the rainly days, get on the computer or the iPad, and visit the British Council’s webpage. Here you can practise all your English skills! For the younger pupils I recommend Learn English Kids and for the older pupils Learn English Teens. Browse the webpage, find what you need to practise (reading, writing, listening, grammar etc) and get started! If you do this a few hours every week, I can promise you’ll quickly notice your skills improving.

Have fun with it! Don’t feel like it is something that you NEED to do, but something that you WANT to do!
