Call for papers
“For us, art is not an end in itself … but it is an opportunity for the true perception and criticism of the times we live in.” (Dada poet Hugo Ball)
Social Inequalities is a mini course teaching students how to prepare oral presentations using contemporary artists as an incentive. The target group is students over 16 years old and the level is B2+ . In total it lasts about 8-9 teaching hours. This is why the whole series was initially posted in 3 parts (First : lesson plan 1, Second : lesson plan 2 and Third : lesson plan 3 & 4 together).
Last May, I was invited to speak at the 16th ELTA Serbia Conference as a representative of TESOL Macedonia Thrace and, of course, because of my bonds with Serbia (I am an editor there) I could not refuse. After all, Belgrade I love !
The report below describes what took place those 2 days.
This report was initially published in ELT TEaser’s Autumn issue (issue 67) by TESOL Macedonia Thrace. You can find it here ELTeaser AUTUM 2018 FINAL (1)
This is a lesson plan I have been using for 2 years to teach punctuation to my students. It has worked well with levels B1-C1. The reason why I chose this particular movie, Alien, and actually the first ALIEN movie made is that, even though older teenagers or young adults know the new version of it (the sequel was out about 2 years ago) , they are not familiar with the very first movie that ever came out. That makes it easier for me to make them work better and use their imagination. It should also be noted that I use this lesson plan when teaching essay writing and is part of the editing process which takes place in the end.

The eLearning Papers provide an opportunity for researchers, people in projects developing innovative applications, and policy makers to share their material quickly and easily on a pan-European portal with international reach.
Authors are invited to submit papers in any of the 24 official EU languages on a number of key themes related to innovative learning. We are particularly interested in receiving contributions from people in international projects and early-stage researchers.
Papers may be submitted on any relevant topic, but we are particularly interested in those covering the following areas:
Authors can submit long papers of a maximum of 6,000 words and shorter entries between 500-1,000 words, excluding references. Bibliographic referencing should follow the Harvard style. Online citation generators can help to simplify this process. Long papers are also required to submit a short abstract in English (even if the paper is submitted in another language).
All articles will be reviewed by a specially-appointed, independent Editorial and Advisory Board comprising experienced academics working in the field of education from across Europe. If accepted, papers will be published online immediately on the portal where they will enjoy high levels of visibility.
Deadline: Papers will be accepted on a rolling basis with first online publications expected in October 2017.
