The following weeks we are going to work with something called mindset; your mental attitude. We do this to practise English of course but also because having the right mindset can make big changes not only in school but in life as a whole.
We watch some short video clips together and then answer a few questions after each clip. When you answer try to describe, explain, discuss and motivate as well as you can. Write down your own answers, then compare them to one of your classmate's. Discuss/look up the words you don't know. We end each episode by a discussion in the class. Perhaps you want to add things to your own answers before you post them in your blog.
Week 35 you will write a short essay about the content in the film clips and the reading comprehension. This will be evaluated by your teacher, who looks at how well you express yourself in written production and if you can express yourself with ease and adapt your language to the situation. The teacher also compares to your earlier work and sees if you have made improvements.
