The Business of Fancydancing

It is certainly a good thing to know about other people’s interests and traditions. In the following slideshow there are some images having to do with a traditional Indian dance. You have to imagine the drumbeat, the sounds, the color, movement and emotion to get an idea of what it is like to be in a festival like this one.

Enjoy 🙂

Funny History of American Literature

In this post you’l watch two videos dealing with the different literarry movements in the States.

In this activity kids will listen to the song Sk8er Boy by Avril Lavigne, they will see the album and try and guess why I chose the images that I did.

Once that is done, they have to create an activity like this one with the song that they choose and we’ll do the activity together.

Sharing some previous work

Last year, I was doing some work with authorstream, where you can upload any .ppt presentation. The one that I did dealt with the use of The Present Tense in English. Since the main philosophy behind web 2.0 is that of sharing, I’m gonna share that with you.
