English 9A & 9B, TED talks!

Have you found your topic to talk about? It is time to figure it out this week (week 6).

Do you need more inspiration – watch the clips in Blendspace! Also, read the instructions in Dropbox where you might find help. If you need – ask your friends for help. I will also gladely sitt down with you and figure out what to talk about.

During week seven it is time to write your speech and to be done with it! I have posted part 1 and part 2 in Dropbox. Read and use them! You might have to use your TTF and also work at home. Part three and four will be posted today (Thursday).

I am counting on you to be done with your speech all together next week (week 7). Last week before the break will be used to practice in front of each other. Helping each other!

Remember; practice, practice, practice, practice! Practice makes perfection! You get it!!

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.

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!

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.
