From the introduction:

Hello there . . . ! Welcome to English Banana.com’s Big Grammar Book. It’s the third fantastic book from English Banana and the aim this time is to practise grammar, grammar and, er, more grammar!

It’s jam-packed from cover to cover with a great selection of photocopiable worksheets taken from the popular English Banana.com website. We wanted to provide teachers with a really useful book of no-nonsense grammar worksheets that they can dip into and use in class with students at Entry Level (ESOL Core Curriculum Entry Levels 1 & 2). It is also ideal for students to work with at home since the answers are all printed at the back.

The book is divided into four parts and is graded in difficulty, so that it begins with some basic stuff and builds up to more challenging grammar activities. It features a selection of Essential English worksheets which provide practice for crucial basic areas of knowledge for learners at Entry Level, like using numbers, writing the alphabet, spelling days and months correctly, and so on.

They will find sub arguments within the text in order to support this claim and present this information through a digital presentation. Students will also be required to use direct references and quotes to defend their answer. Groups should split up the work evenly and work collaboratively. Students will present their digital presentations to the class. Students will then have a debate taking the persuasive stance on why they think their theme is the most relevant and support it through evidence from their research. After the digital presentations are turned in, presented, and each student is informed by other group's theme in detail by the presentation and challanged by debate, students will write an individual reflection on what theme they personally think is the most relevant in today's society.Lesson Narrative:Introduction: Remind students of presentation expecptations and focuses on the central question asked - What is the most irrelevant theme to today’s modern society from The Great Gatsby?Presentations: Students representing groups that support the six themes from the book, (morality, American dream, society, class, materialism, and gender roles) give presentations that are informative, descriptive, and supported with evidence from the book and other outside sources to the class. Instructor: Asks leading questions during presentations to allow students to go more in depth on their theme.

Each group should respectfully address one another and challenge each others ideas and to support their own with their evidence from their presentations. Each group should work together in order to work towards the goal of being the most relevant by collaboration.Instructor: The instructor uses questions to clarify factual claims, ask for supporting evidence, include other members within the class in the debate, and connect the presentations to the discussion to broaden the understanding of each theme/side to the book and it's relevance.Debriefing: The instructor again asks the driving question. Clarifies any confusion, questions, or misinterpretations raised during the debate. Then summarizes what happened during the debate and lets the class think about other group's stance on their themes. Culminating Activity:1. Provide closure for major driving question.2. Gives the opportunity for students to be persuasive and show their understanding of the lesson. Lesson SummaryAfter researching, presenting, and discussing the central driving question mentioned before, students should be able to write an individual essay based off of previous experience with the project.

StoryCub helps parents and children discover great picture books for free

Dave Swerdlick, the multi-award-winning creator of the Kid Friday podcast (#1 Tech Podcast for kids, props from ABC & CBS) is at it again with his latest creation, StoryCub.

We live in an age where videos are often the fastest and easiest ways of keeping kids entertained. StoryCub’s goal is to use the power of fun, free, digital video stories to direct our children's’ attention back to books. They are designed to get the child interested in, and familiar with, the actual story, so that they can look forward to reading a physical copy of it later.

Each StoryCub video is a live person reading a short, children’s book, that includes vibrant illustrations of the book, as well as some time spent on the reader.

StoryCub is a valuable tool not only for helping with children's’ reading skills, but for motivating them to keep reading for the love of the story. There is no better way to get kids excited about reading, than through the interaction between a parent and a child, and StoryCub helps to make this interaction fun, educational, entertaining, and inspirational.

Right now every episode is available at Apple's iTunes Store, where parents can download it for free and share with their children. iTunes rated StoryCub “New & Noteworthy and “What’s Hot”.

If a child likes a StoryCub video, they'll LOVE reading the book.
