Inquiry Questions

  • What is America famous for? 
  • Would you do anything to reach stardom?
  • What does it take to become The King of Pop?
  • Can we learn about another country through a novel?

We will read facts about the USA and some American History. Then we will focus on fame. We will read articles and discuss stardom, which will lead to a poster in the end. We will also do verbal activities were we discuss these things. In addition to this we will read a book by an American author in order to see the life in America from a novel’s perspective.

Combined with these activities we will do some grammar activities that concern some/any, must/have to, subordinate clauses and possessive form, question tags and used to/usually. We will also practice listening and reading comprehension.

We will use google classroom and the planner on Lexby’s website to get detailed instructions and documents.
