Let's mix International Students with U.S. teenagers
YOUTUBE Link youtube.com/tlasteve
This is a video that should expand the discussion about "what opportunities can we teachers bring to students?"
I am a teacher of International students (adults) who want to learn the U.S. accent. We sit in a classroom from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
I am also a teacher for SAT math and verbal test preparation... we sit in a classroom once a week from 6 to 9 p.m.
Can they learn from each other? See my discussion at www.SATVideos.com
ABSOLUTELY (is the answer).
Write to me if you have questions about the procedure. When U.S. teenagers meet international students who are 20-39 years old, what happens?
Where are you from? (atlas)
What is your Facebook account name? (computer link)
Can you show me some photos on your Facebook account?
Where do you live? Where are you staying while you are in Fort Lauderdale? (area map)
Can you write that word on paper? (blank paper and pens)
For low-level students: a list of questions on a sheet
There's the lesson plan.
