Assignment C, Part 1 - An Evaluation of Cutting Edge Advanced

Assignment C, Part 1 - An Evaluation of Cutting Edge Advanced 

Use the checklist from unit 10 (`Evaluating course book material`) to write a general evaluation of the book - you won`t be able to comment on all items as you only have one unit and the contents, but say as much as you can.

This must be presented as a coherent essay, not just a list.

Then say whether you personally would like to use the book with an advanced class and why or why not - this is just your opinion, so there is not a right or a wrong response to this part. You do not need to refer to the class described for part 2 of this assignment.

300 - 500 words

Assignment C, Part 2.1 -  Authentic text 

Select an authentic text* for this class:

A mixed nationality general English class of 15 Advanced C1-C2 adults (9 women, 6 men, ages 20-40 years) living /studying in an English speaking country.

4 have university places for the next academic year and want to improve their fluency in preparation. 2 are married to people from the host country – one is at home with a young child and the other works in a restaurant. 4 are work colleagues who have been sent by their company to work in this country for a year. The other 5 have come on short term visits specifically to improve their English.

*An authentic text is one which was originally aimed at native or proficient English speakers, and was not designed as a piece of language teaching material.

Do not use material found on educational websites. You must demonstrate your own ability to find and exploit authentic materials.

The text should be 500 - 700 words long. (4-5 minutes for listening texts).

In this document provide a copy of the reading text or a transcript of the listening text you have chosen.  Ensure  the text is referenced, and if you have selected a listening text or video, provide a link.

If you choose a reading text, you can shorten and/or adapt it slightly. Please supply a copy of the original and your adapted version. In section b) of the essay briefly explain the decisions you`ve made about changing the text.

Highlight 12 vocabulary items (words or phrases) which it would be useful to pre-teach.

Assignment C, Part 2.1 

Three follow up activities for exploiting the authentic text with advanced students

Design 3 activities to further exploit your selected text after using it for a comprehension lesson.
Items should be presented as material other teachers could use. A teacher would not have to use all three activities, and they do not need to be linked to one another.

At least one activity must be of your own design and not copied from another source.
You can use or adapt ideas you have found on the Internet or in teachers` resource books for the other two activities if you wish to, but provide a reference if you do this.

For each activity provide the following information: name of activity, time (how long activity would take), aims, teacher`s instructions, materials:

TEACHER`S INSTRUCTIONS means instructions for the teacher to follow, NOT what the teacher would say to the students.
e.g.    1. Divide the class into an even number of small groups of three to four.
         2. Give half the groups handout A, and the other half handout B. etc.

MATERIALS: You should include any material the teacher would need for this activity. You can submit materials separately or in this document. If it is submitted separately, make it clear to the marker where s/he can find it.

a) A dictionary activity (see Unit 2), for vocabulary and dictionary skills development AFTER the class read or listened to your selected text
This could be used later in the same lesson or in another lesson. You do not have to use the vocabulary items you have selected for pre-teaching.

b) An activity which requires students to use online resources

 

See Unit 10: Using Computers in Class. You may find it useful to do some extra research for ideas. This task should be designed for use in a follow up lesson. It could require students to find out more about the topic of the text, or to provide further practice of some of the language (vocabulary or grammar) in the text.

You can include additional materials if you wish, but for this activity you must provide a worksheet for the students. This should include clear instructions for students to follow. In the worksheet you MUST give examples of websites students can use for this activity.

 c) Follow up activity

 

Any other activity to be used in a later lesson. This must not be a comprehension task (questions aimed at checking students` understanding of the authentic text), but should be clearly related to your text in some way.
