English 9A & 9B, TED talks!

It is time! Time to voice your opinion about something or tell your experience of something! Anything. You get to choose what to tell the world about.

First of all we will we listen to some TED talks in class, held by fifth graders in Årstaskolan – they are something else … Even live broadcast at the time. Like we aim to do it. Then we will watch one american girl and one american boy when they hold their TED talks. Interesting!

The first assignment on our path to your own TED talk is to find two TED talks you want your friends to watch and benefit from. When you have found them – you write about them. In Dropbox you have a document that tells you how it is supposed do be done. The document you write is then graded. Of course you will listen to your friends two recommended talks and respond! We will get back to that part.

English 8A, Jamie Oliver

Now we have started our journey towards our Podcasts! You will read an article, watch several clips on YouTube writing comments, your opinions and thoughts to everything you watch and read. There will be times where you talk to your partner as well.

We are working in Blendspace.com where we have a lesson (Jamie Oliver) that tells you what to do and in what order. Yesterday, (Thursday January 8) every student started a profile there. Just follow the instructions in the lesson in Blendspace.

Our class code is posted on Instagram. (Class code: qxgl)

We will work with this project a couple of weeks!

Besök från Brighton på Vistaskolan idag

Idag har vi haft besök av en lärare, Sophie, från England, närmare bestämt från Brighton. Sophie höll en lektion om kommunikation mellan människor. Spännande att få lyssna till brittisk engelska och från en lärare som inte ens kan prata svenska. Eleverna tycktes gilla vad hon gjorde och hängde med fantastiskt väl i uppgifterna.

Men, så är ni också otroligt bra på engelska!

Our last project for this semester is something we have decided together to do! We will try out numerous of different webb pages and apps, to evaluate them. When we have found webb pages and apps we like – we will put them in a list of our favourites. That will give us our own, unique list of our favourites to use and learn from.

English 9A & 9B, World War Two, week 49-51

Our last project for this semester in English class will be watching the Movie The Boy in Striped Pyjamas. We have already started the project by reading texts about the concentration camps during the war to get acquaintanted with words that might turn up in the movie and to have some preunderstandig to what happened during World War Two. Since you have, and will study World War Two in social studies, this is a follow up to those studies and also to learn some more.

We will also have discussions in small groups where you will get questions to talk about. You will also get the chance to talk about what we have seen and experienced in the movie.
