Last year we brought you The 21st Century Flux and, for teachers, we provided accompanying worksheets for use in class. The worksheets helped students get to grips with advanced-level content and to make the most of the many ideas and issues Dizraeli addressed in his flowetry. So that was last year …
This year we asked Baba Brinkman (a Canuck) and Professor Elemental (a Brit) to produce a satirical rap-battle on the theme of stereotyped Canadian English versus stereotyped British English. The result was this ‘What’s your English?‘ video, with a script provided further down on the same page. So, this year we are offering three of our readers (you’ll probably be a teacher but you may just enjoy dabbling in education when there’s gifts involved) the opportunity to win a £50 Amazon gift voucher for creating a top-notch worksheet to accompany the video. We’ll publish all three worksheets on the blog for use by teachers and students everywhere. I’ll bullet-point the rest of the details/requirements:
Provide teacher’s notes to go with the worksheet.
State the level of English required.
State the amount of time a teacher can expect to spend on it.
Deadline for entries is Friday July 1st 2011. [Please note: this competition is now closed. Thanks for all the wonderful entries. We’ll have the best ones available for you soon.]
Send the worksheet and teacher’s notes to us at this address.
It might be helpful to take a look at the worksheets for The 21st Century Flux by James Keddie.
We look forward to your entries!Email this Post
I love your video about 21st century. I think it’s fantastic. Thanks a lot.
It´s such a lovely song. I laughed a lot. I can´t wait for the winning worksheets to be published to be able to use them in my class.
