THESE PHOTOS HAVE RECENTLY APPEARED IN SPANISH NEWSPAPERS AND THEY´RE ALL RELATED TO CRIME.

WHAT´S THE STORY BEHIND THEM?

DONATE SCHOOL SUPPLIES TO CHILDREN IN NEED….PLEASE!!

STARS SING ABOUT EBOLA “CHIMES OF DOOM”….

One Direction, Bono and Chris Martin feature in the video for the new Band Aid single to raise money for anti-Ebola charities that has premiered on British television on Sunday.

Organiser Bob Geldof presented the song on the X-Factor talent show on channel ITV and said it was about “the most anti-human disease”, which prevents physical contact because of fear of contagion.

The music video begins with graphic images of an Ebola victim’s body being carried away, before switching to London’s Sarm Studios where about 30 stars recorded the Christmas song.

Many privacy options are available and the project is embeddable.

CONTRIBUTE TO A COLLABORATIVE CHAIN STORY (LOW B2) (B2) (C1)

THE STORY IS OVER NOW. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR KIND AND CREATIVE COLLABORATION. It is published below. In class we´ll make comments on it.

A chain story is an easy way to have students learn vocabulary and work with their friends to create a collaborative story. In a chain story, the teacher begins the story, student A continues the story, student B continues where A stopped, and so on. The students have to listen to each other and understand each other so that the story makes sense and flows.

For this activity, you will contribute to a collaborative web chain story. We will be using an online tool, Padlet. This tool allows you to click on the web wall and add text, images, videos, and more. You do not have to register, but please include your name.
