Grimms' Fairy Tales Tales 81-90 summary. Brief summary of Tales 81-90 in Grimms' Fairy Tales analyzed by PhD students from Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley
Teresa Carvalho's insight:
Summaries of fairy tales with an element of fun. They can be expanded into longer narratives and students can add adjectives, adverbs, narrative techniques, and phrases to set the mood and grab the attention of their audience.
Your itinerary's fine, but we think a last minute change of plans is much more exciting. We found a few people at JFK Airport who'd agree. Would you play Dep...
Teresa Carvalho's insight:
A great conversation starter. Here's how I would do: 1) Pre-viewing: ask stds to think about their travel plans for next summer/vacation/school break; 2) stds share their plans with each other; 3) Tell them they're now in the airport and are heading for the boarding gate show the video; 4) Post-Viewing: ask if they would try the roulette. 5) Discussion: What makes some people take risks. 5) "Task-based" like activity: divide students into groups and tell them they're responsible for promoting an actual brand (e.g. Fiat cars) in a very unusual way : they must choose the location (a restaurant/a shopping mall/ a downtown area, etc) and they must decide how they'll involve the public. they should present a poster of their campaign to the marketing department of the chosen company (It could be the very language institute/school where they study, for example). 3 students should be appointed heads of the marketing department and they should go around the class and monitor the projects and help out with the language/ideas if necessary. When everyone is done, the marketing department committee should vote for the best campaign. Stds can use Prezi or any other tools (tablets, laptops, online resources) for their presentation. If no tech is available, paper and coloring pens will do. The reason why the 3 students need to move around as the groups work on their projects is that they can actively take part in all of them. By doing so they're more likely to reach a decision faster. The campaigns must be kept confidential so that information doesn't leak. Remember the teams are competitors. The final stage also mimics FCE/CAE speaking papers since the three members must reach a decision together. Let me know if you decide to try it out.
An interesting search tool with an embedded dictionary, or is it the other way around? Anyway, a must-have for EFL classrooms. Just type a word, click on the search icon and both the definition with examples and photos will pop up in no time.
Teaching a new language to non-native speakers may be one of the most challenging educational jobs out there, so ELL teachers can use all of the help they can get! Thankfully, many excellent resources for...
