This year I am working with two new classes of the First Year at Liceo G.Chierici in Reggio Emilia.
I am working with another teacher, Daniela, and we are trying to implement our teaching activities not only by working longer hours with our students but also by providing more materials for our English language learners. We do some extra tuition and students will have extra-hours with an English mother tongue teacher from January.
Last summer we prepared activities to reinforce the students' language performance . We asked the families and students to work by doing some activities which were presented online.
I chose Google Slides as they are easy to make and provide lots of links; they can be embedded in websites and also in wikis.
The slides can also be used to create ebooks online.
Since we are going to finish the first term by 23 December, I have created this slide for one of the classes. They are working on reading activities in Italian too and therefore I have created a slide with links to a short text in English with a text and a video about a famous book- Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. The students have also been guided to work online by doing more language revision online.
Here is the document which I have also shared in the blog which I have created :
Our aim is help the struggling learners to empower and learn better. We would like the students to learn on their own and develop some skills that are often neglected when teaching English.
