Students develop conversational skills by discussing books and/or stories.   Subsequently  they might role play one of the characters in the story or book to further practice the language and to possibly add to the story.

Why is the Common Core Such a Big Change?

Why is the Common Core Such a Big Change? | English as a Second Language | Scoop.it

"Teachers are not only expected to change what they teach but how they teach it.  Students must have conceptual understanding and know how to apply the mathematics in addition to having procedural skill and fluency.  Children will be expected to articulate their mathematical understandings orally and in writing."

They do all those things and probably many more.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 22, 2014 10:58 PM

(From the article): People often divide their time between learning and non-learning. Learning is usually much more focused, dedicated time. Even our education systems are built around that concept — first we learn for several years, and then we work. Smart learners do it differently. They use every occasion to learn something new — about the food they eat, the way things work, different cultures, different roles in the same organization, history, and the people around them. The world is a great source of knowledge and skills, available 24/7, so they ask tons of questions and connect the dots.

Learning is a journey, not a destination.

IRREGULAR VERBS LIST -ranked by their use frequency | ESL Lounge

I've just thought of asking every student to reorder the verbs in this chart (one page only -otherwise they might get lost), according to what they think is their own personal frequency of use. Then, they should create a sentence for the 5 most/least used ones : first they'd choose a topic, so that they might relate the 10 sentences with each other to create a (very) short story. Hmm... hope I'm being plain enough. Shall possibly refine the exercise instructions later on.

Nice verb list organized by frecuency.

I've just discovered these literary maps and gathered four of them to have my students discover this specific kind of visuals. They can't exactly be considered infographics (and still... hum !), nor 'classical' maps, lists, nor mind-maps either... though the latter also organise our ideas :o)

Beyond the pleasure to the eyes, the students might choose an author and write a biography -focusing on the writer's hometown, and on the possible influence of his origins on his literary work...

Is there a translators map?
