Material needed: Track 8, Audio CD Script, p. 75G

Reproducible document: In This Unit, p. 12-1

This opening activity allows the students to get a first look at the world of medieval times by exploring real and fictional characters, some of whom are already known to the students. It is meant to be a doorway into both the real and imagined time period. 1. First, allow the students time to match the characters with the riddles. Ask them if they used the visual clues in the illustration to help them make the match. 2. Ask the students to match the names of the characters with the pictures. 3. Play Track 8 on the audio CD to give students the necessary information to confirm and validate their choices. 4. Then have a group discussion in order to decide whether each character is real or fictional.

Competency Development Reinvests understanding of texts Encourage students to reactivate the meaning of every word and cognate they know while they read the riddles and to look for the meaning of words in the dictionary only if they are sure they can’t understand the meaning of the riddle without it. This way, y the activity helps students tolerate ambiguity and strive to understand the meaning of the text. 2

Unit 12 • Legends of the Medieval Times


In This Unit You Will... Read the first part of the introduction R to the learning and evaluation situation aloud. The objective is to give students an overview.

Text Types Invite the students to use the In This Unit handout, p. 12-1. This is a checklist to help students chart their progress throughout the unit.

Grammar and Language The simple past is very useful when telling stories. In this unit, the simple past will be reinvested in the projects as this will require the students to use it when explaining their processes. Ordinal adjectives will also be reinvested to allow students to present their writing or production process in the project presentation. Finally, students will experiment with functional language (Agr A reement, Disagreement r and Opinionss) when discussing the ideas and information (Response R prrocesss) found in the texts.

Strategies Projects You have two opportunities to give the students an overview of the three suggested projects: • They could be introduced right from the start of the learning and evaluation situation. This will give students ample time to plan their project. • Or, they could be introduced after Step 4. This will give the students a more focused approach while working through some of the activities in this section. Whenever you choose to introduce the projects, first distribute the appropriate “How to” Checklist, t a handout that students will need to carry out the selected project. Then ask them to choose one of the suggested projects or select one for them. The students will consult this handout throughout the unit.

The strategies are presented in the Strategies section on pp. 206-223. Invite the students to look at this section and reactivate their knowledge of these strategies, if needed. Use U semantic mapping (p. 220) is one particular strategy students are encouraged to develop and explore through SSteps 1 and 4 of the unit.

Evaluation Cues Self-evaluation Ask students to use the In I This Unit U handout, p. 12-1, to keep track of their learning throughout the unit and to self-evaluate. This handout should be kept in the portfolio to show their progress and monitor their strengths and weaknesses. It can be used as a basis for discussion during teacher/student conferences.

Cardinal and Ordinal Numbers/Adjectives




About Cardinal and Ordinal Numbers • Cardinal numbers are used to express the quantity of something or the number of an item (thus becoming adjectives since they are modifying nouns). > This book has two hundred and sixteen pages. (216) > My friend scored five goals in last night’s soccer game. (5) • Ordinal numbers are used to express rank. > My cousin arrived on the twenty-seventh of August. (27th day – date) > This athlete finished in the thirteenth position in her category.

Pedagogical Notes


Unit 12, pp. 56-57

Presentation These optional handouts can be used to help students reactivate their knowledge about cardinal and ordinal numbers or to learn this grammar point in order to integrate the use of ordinal numbers when describing the rank of something.

Procedure • Distribute the optional handouts (pp. 12-7 and 12-9) to students. • Ask students to look at the About Cardinal and Ordinal Numbers box on p. 12-7. Ask them what they already know about using both types of numbers. Then point out that compound numbers between 21 and 99 need a hyphen (when spelled out) and that they can consult their Student Book to verify the spelling of a number whenever necessary. Also make sure students notice that when writing an ordinal number, they can use the number itself and the last two letters of the version spelled out in superscript (e.g., first = 1st). These are printed in bold in handout p. 12-7. • Ask students to fill in p. 12-9. Students may have to refer to the Write About it ! box on p. 12-7.
