Self reflection biografical work 2 l.jpg
Self-reflection & biograficalWork (2)

Description for Teachers:

  • Level: beginners/intermediate/advancedMaterial: Paper and pencils for all participants, worksheets Duration: 40 min.

  • In the first phase the students will work with a worksheet on their own, which is a time line on which they can mark special times/incidents in their life. This could be incidents in their personal life or education. In a second step they decide to which extent these incidents had been positive or negative for them.

  • After working on their own, the learners come together in small groups and exchange what they found out. They might talk about similarities, find out new aspects and points of view, etc.

  • The incidents might be quite personal. It is important, that learners have the chance to talk about such experiences in the secure setting of a small working group or with the teacher. They should not be discussed within the whole group. If deep problems are identified, learner and/or teacher should contact further help.

    • Most young people are interested in cars, especially cars which are not for everyone. Bring the students along to a car dealer with some interesting cars for sale, perhaps jaguars, Porsches or similar. Remember to make arrangements beforehand…

    • Make sure you have a handout with a sketch or picture of the car(s) that you will see on the field trip.

Alternatively make them find a certain amount of words and let them write down for later practice.

      Instructions for Learners:

  • Try to find obvious words that are would be needed when talking about cars with foreigners. Or choose funny sounding words as you find them in the dictionary
