The learning scenario is supposed to develop the four language skills: speaking, reading, listening and writing. Students will expand their knowledge of cultural heritage, history of the Great Famine migration in Ireland and as a result, vocabulary related to this topic. Students will also practice how to describe pictures, comment on the short film and how to react in typical situations (expressing opinions, preferences; asking for opinions and preferences). Working in a team, students will learn how to negotiate and discuss ideas and present for and against arguments related to the topics, how to collect information for the report.
This learning scenario has been developed during the English version of the “Europeana in your classroom: building 21st-century competences with digital cultural heritage” online course. The course aimed to improve teachers’ understanding of cultural heritage in order to efficiently integrate it into their lessons and practices. The courses can be accessed here.
