Creative Writing | My HINTS

Creative Writing | My HINTS | ELT resources designed for building EFL-ESL lessons & courses | Scoop.it
"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach." : this version is much more common (approximate quote). I thought of a possible creative writing instruction : "Divert a saying/phrase/quote as shown the visual." (including the original of course).
Monica Mirza's insight:
Quotes, sayings, mottoes, phrases... have your students play with words. First have them work the language -lexis, syntax...- to grasp its structure & meaning. As a result, they'll be able to create their own by parodying/diverting the one they've studied. The teacher obviously needs to search for sentences that suit the activity better -love this kind of search! :-}

"America's gun problem, explained" | ELT resources designed for building EFL-ESL lessons & courses | Scoop.it

german.lopez@vox.com Oct 2, 2017, 9:15am EDT 

"The public and research support gun control. Here's how it could help — and why it doesn't pass."

Monica Mirza's insight:
"[...] More guns mean more gun deaths. Period.
The research on this is overwhelmingly clear. No matter how you look at the data, more guns mean more gun deaths. [...]"

"Richard the Stork" (official trailer - 01'28)

01'28" official trailer : A young sparrow fights to follow his foster parents -storks- and migrate to Africa...
Monica Mirza's insight:
L'histoire de "Ricky" (titre de la version française) aborde les thèmes de la différence (un moineau adopté par des cigognes) et du dépassement de soi (il luttera de toutes ses forces pour les suivre lors de leur migration vers l'Afrique)...

Plusieurs parties de cette bande-annonce peuvent se faire support pour bâtir des activités (orales/écrites).
Les élèves du cycle 3 y aborderont le lexique des couleurs/nature/animaux... (vie quotidienne), les verbes d'action, prépositions de lieu, ...

Les accents varient d'un d'un personnage à l'autre : l'on peut également souligner le contraste phonologique (accents, prononciation...).

Icing on the cake, des scènes hilarantes et un ensemble traité avec finesse. Voilà quelques pistes me venant à l'esprit dans un premier temps.
Les possibilités sont multiples... your move ! :-)
