Creating amazing mind maps in 3 ESO

Posted: January 31, 2018 in READERS

This week in Readers, we are learning how to make our work original, interesting and truly amazing. How? you may ask yourselves… We take a chapter in our book “My Teen Life in India”, in this case the chapter called “8th May”, and read it in groups of three students. The task at hand is making a simple mind map…but the CHALLENGE is that the mind maps have to be original, creative and full of ideas. Each group have to make their mind map theirs, something that is even more difficult as they are all working on the same, rather short, chapter. They also have to manage time and decide the format of their mind map. The thinking process has begun…
Here are some photos from the process and hopefully next week, we can share the amazing work they will have done by then.

 

In second ESO we are continuing the second story in the book “Lord Arthur Sevile’s Crime and Other stories”
As an introduction the students have to match words with pictures.
This introduces the students to new vocabulary in the book and gets them thinking about the forthcoming story.
We had an interesting discussion in class why they had used specific words to describe the person in the picture.
I asked student if they had heard of the expression (idiom) “Don’t judge a book by its cover”
Below is an internet link that explains the expression.
As we will find out in the story the characters aren’t what we expect them to be!

Hi everyone,
After the long Christmas break, in 1st ESO we have started reading a digital book in the app Oxford Learners Bookshelf.
The first challenge for the students was to learn how to navigate the digital book and to highlight vocabulary they didn’t understand.
The book “Sherlock Holmes Short Stories” is a detective story split into three short stories the first being “The Speckled Band”
A lot of the students found out that the character is in fact fictional even though lot of tourists visit the detectives London home in Baker Street!
The first story is called the speckled band and has kept the students intrigued as to who killed Helen’s sister Julia and how! The story title is a clue as to what killed Helen!
To help with their comprehension we have been completing exercises in the book to follow the plot.

Hi everyone,

In 1 Bach Adv we are reading this truly wonderful novel and the students are learning how to share their views through literature circles, where they are focusing on themes, characters, the setting and their opinions. They are also learning to listen to each other and to understand different perspectives as well as enhancing their understanding and enjoyment of the book. As they had previously carried out a brief research on Jane Austen, they are also able to pick out some of the biographical aspects that are so characteristic of Austen’s novels.

Hi everyone,

To celebrate library day 1st and 2nd ESO have been doing some fun group projects and presentations about Fantasy children’s books. The student in groups of three or four, had to choose a book that they had read or seen the film. They then researched the story and produced book covers or posters containing information about the author, characters and  a short summary about the book. They presented their work to the rest of class.
Some students created quizzes about the book, which were played by the whole class.

Here you have a few photographs of their presentations.

Well done!

This term we will be working on different books and doing different projects.

We have just finished with the summer reader evaluations that have, on the whole, shown good understanding of the books. Our students have read about Trolls and ghost stories in 3ESO; Henry VIII and his six wives in 4 ESO; Leonardo da Vinci in 1 Bach and finally about Martin Luther King in 2 Bach. These stories will also be used in our first mini projects.

On 24 October we have our amazing Library Day! And this year it will be devoted to Fantastic Literature in Secondary and we have some great activities lined up… More to come about this closer to the date.

Remember that a book a day, keeps ignorance away!
