In our ELL Geography class, we’re learning about climate.
After we studied in our textbooks the factors that influence climate (apart from human-made climate change – that comes next), students created a poster describing the seasons in their home countries, including academic language they used when reading the textbook. Next, they presented them to their advanced group of students. Finally, we used my favorite iPhone app, Shadow Puppet, to photograph the poster and record students recording what they wrote.
We only had time to record three students on Friday. We’ll finish the rest on Monday. Then, we’ll show it to my entire ELL Geography class (the advanced group did this project — the Beginner and Intermediate groups will do it next, with assistance from the more Advanced students).
It’s also posted on our class blog.
