Unit 1: Animals (lesson 1)

This is meant to be a post about a quite different unit about Animals.

Students love to see that they are learning Real English and they need to practise English using real situations or every day English vocabulary.

This movie is very interesting because you can have at the same time a movie and a book to discuss about: A Street Cat Named Bob (2016).

You can even discuss about many other topics: animals, homelessness, charities, drugs, London city or busking!

Reading: session 2

 

This session was about a favourite (or not)book!

My students were supposed to describe it and at the same time they were seeing how a book is made!

You can do this session in the school library where they can choose any book!

Describing a book

As we could see in the class, when we checked for the book  file we are reading, you are supposed to write a book file.

It can be a book you like or not, or a book that is your favourite one!

Do not forget to include the following information:

1. Title of the book

2. Name of the author and information about when, where he/she lives/ed and what he/she did for a living.

3. Structure of the book

4. Genre

5. Say why you chose the book.

Reading: session 1

Reading is a complex activity and I am sure that most of my students hate it or simply do it because they have to pass an exam.

This is my first activity for my students.

I tried to help them how to deal with reading and books.

 

1. Read the book

2. Select the words you do not know and look for the meaning. Read the Glossary, too.

3. Try to summarise the book using your own words.

4. Think about the characters and write their name: principal and secondary ones!

5.  Look at the book structure and write how many pages, chapters or volumes are.

6. Look for Culture and Society elements in the book and try to think about them.

7. Write about what type of genre your book is and describe it.

Reading tips

These days I am stuck in Reading tips and how to engage students to read!!

 

Image result for reading time

After a few meetings and some courses, I am going to dedicate the next posts to how Reading should be taught or at least how we could improve teaching Reading.

I am teaching 1st eso students and we are now reading a book and this is the post I have for them in the school blog: I gave them some prompts on Reading and I am going to insist on reading and commenting the book in order to make them realise that, in the end, Reading is not such a boring thing!
