This exam aims at making you reflect on how much you have learnt during class activities, outings and from posts. It also includes a question on question words from a previous exam you had lots of problems with.
So far, we did three exams on films (two with me and one with Núria about the Nightmare before Christmas) , made a film poster and did a lot of oral practice on the topic. So, in this exam, you only had to show that you understood what films and books had in common. This way, we can start a new set of posts, this time about books, authors, and literary genres.
Also, it is important that you realise that outigs are lessons. It is great that you have fun, but you also have to make some effort and process the information you receive when we go out of the school. This is the reason for including questions about the concert and the outing to the cathedral.
Finally, what you learn in other lessons is not a watertight compartment, this is the reason for asking you about the Prince of Mist and the object with sentimental value. Both activities are connected with Emili and Bernat’s lessons.
Now, you are at home, sitting comfortably in you house. You can open your notebook and answer these questions. Use all the tools you need: The internet, on line dictionaries, the blog, the Google group mail. Next exam, I will let you use your notes, promised! I’t an fair deal, isn’t it? So, let’s see what comes out of it. Maybe your note taking technique will improve dramatically.
