Google Scholar is among the best scholarly search engines online yet only a few select of educators know its secrets.As a rule of thumb that applies to all Google products, the effective use of any service from Google s can only be achieved through mastering its deep and hidden features.
The InterCultural Resource pack (ICRP) presented here is intended to be shared among the whole ELT community, for everybody to benefit from it. All of you are invited to download the entire by clicking in the image below. It would be great if you could all give us feedback on the activities in the pack as you use them.
We are interested in both “process” and “product” info, i.e. results of the activities in terms of content. It will also be of great help for all to know the adaptations you’ve made to use them in your contexts.
Our idea is to pool all these results together in each Intercultural Voices post.
You and your students are invited to interact in the forum. It´d be wonderful to hear our intercultural voices!
This pack represents the outcome of a project proposal started at the Hornby Summer School Brazil 2006. It was funded by the British Council/ELTeCS Scheme and developed by the following ELT professionals:
Andrea Morgado de Matos. Rio de Janeiro,Brazil-Cognitive Domain Idiomas. Project leader
Andrea Assenti del Rio – La Plata,Argentina – Home-tailor made English Courses and Universidad Nacional de La Plata
Nahir Aparicio Medina – Caracas,Venezuela – Instituto Pedagógico de Caracas at Universidad Pedagógica Experimental Libertador.
Sergio Mobilia – Buenos Aires,Argentina – Fulbright Fellow, University of ConnecticutTeresa Martins – Sao Paulo, Brazil – Colegio Divino Salvador and Universidade Paulista.

The ‘Teaching Unplugged’ or ‘Dogme ELT’ movement has a very strong following amongst teachers. In fact, the Dogme ELT discussion list, which was
Teaching Unplugged is the term used for a teaching method and philosophy which has three primary aims: teaching through conversation, taking out external input such as course book and technology and letting the lesson content be driven by the students rather than being pre-planned by the teacher. Based on the ‘Dogme ELT’ approach to teaching, its origins lie in an article written in 2001 by Scott Thornbury and Luke Meddings called ‘The roaring in the chimney’. They later wrote ‘Teaching Unplugged’, a comprehensive guide to this type of teaching and winner of the British Council ELTons award for Innovation in 2010.

For MachinimUWA VII: Transcending Borders
You and I are in a world without boundaries and our spirits flow in it like ink blots on damp paper…
Silent meetings , unlikely places, casual encounters. A woman is beguiled by a series of messages from a virtual stranger. Gradually this man sneaks into her clear defined virtual world, but also starts crossing borders of her real life . Therefore turning off the computer soon proofs to be not enough anymore for her peace of mind ...
Vous et moi sont dans un monde sans frontières et nos esprits s’y étalent comme une tache d’encre sur un papier humide
Rendez vous silencieux, lieux improbables, rencontres fortuites…
Une femme va par jeux suivre les messages d’un être virtuel inconnu.
Petit à petit cet homme va s’immiscer dans son univers virtuel jusqu’au jour ou les frontières de sa réalité seront elle aussi envahie par cette rencontre.
Alors le fait d’éteindre son ordinateur ne sera plus suffisant pour la paix de son esprit.
Tú y yo estamos en un mundo sin fronteras donde nuestros espíritus fluyen como manchas de tinta sobre papel húmedo ...
Reuniones silenciosas, lugares inverosímiles, encuentros casuales. Una mujer se siente seducida por una serie de mensajes que le envía un desconocido virtual. Sin apenas darse cuenta, este hombre se introduce en su mundo virtual claro y definido, pero también comienza a cruzar las fronteras de su vida real. Apagar el ordenador ya no será suficiente para encontrar la paz ...
Clement Clarke Moore (1779 - 1863) wrote the poem Twas the night before Christmas also called “A Visit from St. Nicholas" in 1822. It is now the tradition in many American families to read the poem every Christmas Eve.´
Twas the Night before Christmas Poem
Make it Snow !
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a miniature sleigh, and eight tinny reindeer.
With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St Nick.
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!
"Now Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! on, on Donner and Blitzen!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!"
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top the coursers they flew,
With the sleigh full of Toys, and St Nicholas too.
And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of each little hoof.
As I drew in my head, and was turning around,
Down the chimney St Nicholas came with a bound.
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of Toys he had flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler, just opening his pack.
His eyes-how they twinkled! his dimples how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
That shook when he laughed, like a bowlful of jelly!
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself!
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head,
Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk.
And laying his finger aside of his nose,
And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose!
He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
But I heard him exclaim, ‘ere he drove out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

English Final Project
Lyric Video- SAME LOVE
As a group we chose this song because it touches different topics besides peace, love and gay marriage. Basically, the concept chosen for this lyric video is colorful, juvenile with different textures where each word written it has a different and unique style. In the process of making this lyric video we took a lot of pictures more than one hundred to create a stop motion of sticky notes.
Each of the Sticky Notes has a small phrase or word from the lyrics of the song and it was decorated with different colors, ornaments, strokes and typographies.
The message of using all this different pieces is to connote that we are just like the sticky notes showed, each one of us is different in our own unique way and there is nothing wrong about that. We can have different skin color, values, religions, and thinking, but we will always be humans and that’s something we can’t forget.
Besides that, it's a powerful record and it needs to be heard not only in America but around the world because equality is at the forefront of what's going on in politics right now. After all, it's not only about helping to spread a positive message about gay rights, by its logic, it’s about acceptance, love each other, we are what we are, and there’s not a thing we can do about that, so let’s just stop trying to change because someone told you to be something you're not.
We shouldn’t discriminate people just because they want to marry or love their same sex they should be free to love without any restrictions or being afraid.
The part of the song that caught our attention is “Have you read the YouTube comments lately "Man, that’s gay" gets dropped on the daily. We become so numb to what we’re saying’”. We picked this part because today people are not aware of what they say if it’s going to affect negatively to some other person or how much words can really hurt. For some people words might be forgiven but not sometimes they can’t be forgotten.
It's hard for too many people who are uncomfortable with staying quiet and actually begin to hate themselves because of it. Even though those words are rooting from the same hate raised of racism and wars.
