Avaluació interna de l’ aprenentage a 4t d’ ESO

Just abans de les vacances de Nadal, els alumnes de 4t d’ ESO, juntament amb els de la resta de cursos, van ser examinats dels continguts i procediments de la primera avaluació. Aquest test va ser elaborat pel professor titular del curs i va comtar amb el vist-i-plau de la resta de professors i professores del departament de llengües estrangeres. L’ objectiu d’ aquesta experìencia posar els alumnes en una situacio en la que haguessin de posar en pràctica allò que realment han assimilat de la primera avaluació.

Els resultats estan essent analitzats i seran publicats anònimament en els propers dies, juntament amb les conclusions que els docents en treuran com la dels alumnes.

Acabat el curs comença la migració cap el nou bloc

Let me thank all the students and parents who have read and participated in this blog. But let me also tell you that Whitefield’s blog is about to close down. It will soon start under a different form, where you will find articles from all the teachers at the IES Cubelles. But that’s not all, because CEIP Charlie Rivel and CEIP Vora del Mar will also publish their articles and activities in the same blog. This initiative tries to bring together the efforts of all the English teachers who work in Cubelles, be it in primary or secondary school.

See you soon and have a nice time!

Deixe-me agraïr a tots els alumnes, pares i mares que heu  llegit i participat en aquest bloc. Però deixeu-me també dir-vos que el Bloc d’ en Whitefield està a punt de tancar. Tornarà aviat amb una nova forma, on trobareu articles escrits per tots els professors i professores de l’ IES Cubelles. Però no s’ acaba aquí, doncs el CEIP Charlie Rivel i el CEIP Vora del Mar també hi publicaran activitats i articles en el mateix bloc. Aquesta iniciativa intentarà ajuntar els esforços de tots els professors/es i mestres que treballen a Cubelles.

Ens veiem aviat i que us ho passeu bé!

English test, PAU 2008

As announced, the 2008 English language PAU test has got three parts:

  1. Reading comprehension. The text was about “toxic friends”, that is to say, people who are your friends but make it difficult for you to make new things. Overall, the test was on the easy side and there were minor vocabulary problems.
  2. Writing. The two options were: a letter where you ask a “toxic friend” to renegotiate your friendship; or a composition about the influence of psycology in our lives.
  3. Listening exercise: 8 questions about a TV series where a famous British comedian -Michael Palin- travels the world.
