Just a year out... hopefully

CC is an Arts teacher at my school. She won´t be joining us next year as she's about to embrace a new career challenge. It's been twelve years since we first met! It's hard to imagine school without her. She'll be deeply missed...

Dove Real Beauty Sketches

When I first saw this video, I thought of some of my 10th/11th form female students who lack so much self-esteem. I think this video could be an approach to the topic, especially in the 10th form, as 'Being a teenager today' is one of the issues that I'm currently talking about in class. Then, and to lighten up the atmosphere, showing them this Dove beauty ad spoof would be a funny way to end such a painful topic!

Images of our beautiful world

I'm sure you'll find the best way to use these pictures in class. Either to talk about environment, or our multicultural world, they're so fresh and appealing that, simply by showing them, you'll get a reaction from your students. Especially from your visual learning students. Click HERE to view all the images and the text that follows them.

#Epic selfie around the world

What a fantastic video to use in class when talking about 'The Multicultural World'! Why not ask your students to try to identify the 36 countries where the guy in the video has taken such fantastic selfies? I'm sure enthusiasm, and a little bit of jealousy, will spread along the class and you'll have fantastic moments of interaction with your students, especially if they are privileged enough to have already traveled around some countries!...
To contextualize the adventure, you might like to take a look at this interview with Alex Chacon, the lucky globe trekker, for CBS, or look into Chacon's blog The Modern Motorcycle Diaries, which has fantastic pictures of this beautiful planet!
