Using own ideas to write a paragraph

[lo 4.3, 4.4.1]

Assessment

LO 3
Reading and ViewingThe learner will be able to read and view for informa­tion and enjoyment, and respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts
We know this when the learner:
  • reads and responds to social texts:
3.3.1 identifies purpose, audience and context;
3.8 shows some understanding of how reference books work:
  • uses contents page and index to find information;
  • uses a dictionary and a simple thesaurus.
LO 4
WritingThe learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes
We know this when the learner:
4.2 writes for social purposes;
4.3 writes for personal reflection;
  • writes creatively:
4.4.1 shows development in the ability to write stories, poems and play-scripts (e.g. by using figurative language);
LO 6
Language Structure and useThe learner will know and be able to use the sounds, words and grammar of the language to create and interpret texts.
We know this when the learner:
6.8 uses some language to talk about language (meta-language– terms such as pronunciation);
6.9 expands vocabulary (e.g. by working with word families: happy, unhappy, happiness, unhappiness, happily).

Memorandum

ACTIVITY 1:

Have another good look at dictionaries. Test them by calling out a word to see who finds the word first. Let them read out the explanation of the words. Ensure that EVERY learner possesses a GOOD dictionary and that they are used! Daily! Suggest that they ask their parents to buy them a good dictionary for their next birthday – it is something they can keep for the rest of their lives! Give them a few words which have different meanings according to the context so that they understand HOW to use a dictionary!

ACTIVITY 2:

This can also be a time test. Now see if they can do it in their head! Not easy!

  • Let them work out other questions using the same words e.g. ‘ dough’ is slang for …..? A very old-fashioned word for someone who is mentally unstable is ‘lunatic’. Where does this word come from and why is it old-fashioned?
  • It is interesting for them to know that the word ‘ bankrupt’ really means ‘ to break the bench’, an early form of showing that someone trading outside a temple was no longer in business! Let them each find THREE other words and then tell the class what they have discovered. Let them feel how exciting a dictionary can be. This can, of course, lead on to a discussion about encyclopaedias, the value of the internet etc.

ACTIVITY 3:

Explain how knowledge of prefixes and suffixes helps with spelling! Give them a short spelling test (This can be done at the start of EVERY lesson! The results can be placed on a graph. They enjoy watching their progress).

ACTIVITY 4:

Explain that slang is vibrant, immediate, youthful, fun BUT it is limited – therefore it is considered non-acceptable. At some stage they have to move beyond slang and improve their vocabulary. They should already be keeping an A-Z book for storing the magnificent world of words! If not – encourage them or even insist. It is really in their own interests as words make up language and they knee-halter themselves by limiting their vocabulary!

ACTIVITY 5:

Journalling is an important therapy! Explain about being sense-sitive. Read out, store, display and frame the best, even just a phrase!

ACTIVITY 6:

Go over the assessment chart with them. Help them to edit and encourage, motivate, stimulate and PRAISE!

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
