During a few weeks you will learn some more about the environment. We will work with the textbook and workbook to develop our abilities to speak, read, listen and write. We will also listen to other medias and watch some short movies related to the theme. In your workbook you will also find a grammar section as usual.
Working with this section will involve the following: reading texts that are focusing on different aspect of the environment. You will have the opportunity to work with your classmates and teachers to really grasp the texts and learn new words and phrases. You are supposed to participate in discussions based on the new information you have gained and also be able to speak your own opinion and listen to others (debate).
A summary of one of the texts from the chapter should be written. This summary will be marked and commented on by your teacher. Your task will then be to use that feedback, make necessary changes and hand in for a final grading.
You should work with these texts and the words in yellow (TB):
Global warming p.78-79
What you can do to help p.80
Save the rainforests p. 82-83
Green cars p. 84-85
Why veggie p. 86-87
Extra: Write a short text and try to predict what the world would be like in 2050.
Here are some questions to help you:
What could happen to the world if scientists find a pill to substitute food?
What could happen if everybody became vegetarian?
What could happen if all animals on the planet disappeared?
What could happen in Africa if they don’t get enough food and water supplies?
What could happen if the world’s population continues to increase rapidly?
