The report on the morning activities is supposed to be postponed as they are subject to top secret.
Nevertheless, I find it necessary to express my gratitude to those who are responsible for the brilliant idea of including them in our today´s schedule.
We were exposed to and immersed in a delightful British English spiced up generously with witty humour, which made the whole experience unforgettable.
A Graded Approach to William Wordsworth´s Poem
It Was an April Morning was the chosen literary text to teach both literature and English.
The lesson plan included a wide array of activities focused not only on literature but on the use of language as well. The starter based on drawing aroused the motivation, created the context and allowed to preteach some lexical items from the poem. Making students stand up, after reading and listening to the poem, in order to cooperate in exchanging the information on the key words added a dynamic touch to the teaching methods. We appreciated the teacher´s remarks on semantic nuances and grammar peculiarities, as well as the suggestion to split the poem adjusting it to the students´ needs so that diffrent groups can work on a shorter text explaining it to their classmates afterwards.
I personally find the afternoon class extremely attractive and useful for our professional purpose.
