Förord OUTPUT är en serie basläromedel för årskurs 7–9. Idag talar man inte

om olika länder där engelskan talas utan om olika sociala och kulturella sammanhang. Detta bör ses som ett utslag av engelskans ökade närvaro överallt i vår vardag, både som arbetsverktyg och på vår fritid. OUTPUT tar fasta på den förändrade omvärld som innebär att språket finns till­ gängligt överallt och när som helst. En viktig punkt i kursplanerevisionen Lgr11 har varit att förbättra elevernas skriftliga språkfärdighet och samtidigt behålla deras muntliga språkfärdighet samt goda förståelse av talad och skriven engelska. Därför genomsyras OUTPUT av en skrivkurs med en tydlig progression inom olika genrer för att uppnå målen i år 9. OUTPUT hjälper lärarna med formativ bedömning – kvar finns så klart den summativa bedömningen. OUTPUT anknyter närmare till den europeiska referensramen där språkliga aktiviteter delas in i reception, produktion, interaktion och mediering. OUTPUT 7 Textbook består av 5 kapitel med texter i olika genrer.

Texterna finns i olika svårighetsgrader. OUTPUT passar dig som:

• vill arbeta efter mål- och bedömningsmatriser • vill arbeta med både tryckta böcker och digitala läromedel • vill arbeta med integrering av engelskämnet med andra ämnen • interkulturell förståelse och kommunikation (globalisering) • vill arbeta med engelskan som internationellt kommunikationsspråk OUTPUT kommer även att finnas som interaktiv bok.

Om du har frågor kring materialet är du välkommen att kontakta mig. Med vänlig hälsning Mercedes Mather Läromedelsutvecklare 040-20 98 38 mercedes.mather@gleerups.se 3

Hiya! I’m Fran and I’m thirteen and three quarters. Me and my twin brother Greg live with our mum and dad in this really big house. I’m the big sister cos’ I’m 22 minutes older than Greg. I’m pretty good at running and I’m pretty good at school, so my nickname is ‘Boffin’, which is sometimes shortened to ‘Bof.’ I forgot to say, I’m a little bit crazy and speak before I think! But I’m OK really! See ya!

They are really great mates. The best!

Hello! I’m Greg and as you know I’ve got a

twin sister. We are completely different from each other. Fran is wild and loud and I’m calm and a good listener. I’m pretty reliable and I like to help people. Fran and I usually get along pretty well, but we do argue a lot but I suppose that’s normal for siblings. We’re in the same class at school by the way, so we’re always together! We can’t escape from each other! Bye!

Hi there! My name’s Tom and I’m a friend of the twins. I live next door with my dad and my sister. I’ve always lived in this town and I really like that it’s next to the ocean. I love riding the waves in the summer! I’m also really into painting. I always have my sketch book with me. I do paintings of the town, the sea and my friends. My nickname is ‘Picasso’. I’m also really good at fixing things so I’m very popular at school. I repair people’s laptops and mobile phones and so on. I spend quite a lot of time with the twins and Masha. Hey there! I’m Masha and I’m just 13. My birthday was yesterday.

I’ve got a Russian name. We left Russia for England three years ago. My dad got a job with an English company. God, it was so hard when I first got here. I couldn’t understand a word of English for the first three months! Now the language isn’t a problem. I find the kids at school here really friendly. I like Tom and the twins. They are really great mates. The best! The twin’s mum and dad are nice as well. They don’t mind if I sometimes sleep over. Bye for now!

Fran:

OK then you guys. School’s over, so what shall we do?

Tom:

Our homework?

Masha: I can’t. I’ve got my books back home and it’s way too far to get

them.

Fran: Oh, come on, Masha. Like 100 metres. That’ll take you ages.

Just roll home on your skateboard.

Greg: No, no homework. Around ten at night is the right time for that. Fran: Yes, by then dad has told you a thousand times to make a start. Greg: The later it is, the better I think. Tom:

And it’s very early now, isn’t it?

Masha: I could go and fetch my books. It’s nice to have some company

when you do your homework.

Greg: You know what – I have this feeling. Masha: What? Like the aliens watching us last week? Greg: They did, Masha. I’m sure I could feel it. No, I know something

fantastic is going to happen. Something out of the ordinary.

Fran: Like what? Like Miss Jones is going to phone you telling you

don’t need to do any homework this month or like…

Tom:

…winning a million pounds on the National lottery?

Greg: Not unlikely. Masha: Have you bought any lottery tickets then? Fran:

How could he? He’s totally broke, Masha. It’s three days since we had our pocket money and yesterday I lent him £5. Where does your money go? It’s as if you had huge holes in your pockets.

Greg: I don’t know really, but I can’t understand how you do it. You

even manage to save money.

Fran: I just don’t buy as much as you do. Simple as that. All your

games and films for one thing. I play online for free and watch films on the telly.

Tom:

Me too. Only sixty-year-olds buy games and films. They even buy music.

Tom:

Fran: The call from Miss Jones? Masha: Isn’t there something in the air? I can smell it. Tom:

When did feelings get a smell?

Greg: That’s it! Spot on! Smell is correct! I know that smell from

somewhere!

Masha: Yes, what a smell. I know it too. Voice from the kitchen: All of you! Time for tea! Greg’s

favourite meal Bangers and mash!

Greg: See! I was right! Miles better than winning the lottery or even

not having to do homework. Come on now! Let’s get moving!

Amalia, the Drummer Girl Amalia looks around the area at the back of the garage and feels proud of what she’s done. The walls are all covered with egg boxes. They will stop some of the noise from her drums reaching her neighbours. Tomorrow, she thinks, I’ll buy that drum set. Finally! The following afternoon, Amalia puts the drums into the corner on a large rug. As soon as they are in place, she sits down on the stool and smiles as she puts her earplugs in. One drumstick in each hand and bang bang bang she plays the intro to Arctic Monkey’s R U Mine? It sounds perfect! When Amalia returns to the house she sees old Mr Newbury, her grumpy neighbour that most kids are afraid of. Now he looks even angrier than usual and she can see his mouth moving but she can’t hear a word he’s saying until she takes her earplugs out.

No school, no work, drums all day!

“Young girl, this noise you’re making, it has to stop.” He sounds annoyed and Amalia isn’t sure of how to react. “I’m really sorry. I didn’t mean to disturb you.” “Well, you did.” At last it is Saturday morning. No school, no work, drums all day! Amalia phones Roshin, her best friend, who plays the bass guitar. They’re going to start a band. Amalia can’t wait for that to happen and decides to practise some beats as she’s waiting for Roshin to come over. One of the beats she’s trying to learn is difficult and she can’t get it right. Old Mr Newbury is watering his roses in the front garden. “Are you going to start drumming now?” “My friend and I...” Amalia tries to smile at him. “My God, I’ll be talking to your parents about this.” “But, Mr New...” Mr Newbury turns his back on her and walks away. He doesn’t give her a chance to explain.

Amalia fails miserably the first time she tries the beat. She keeps trying and she gets better, but not good enough. Well, who said playing the drums would be easy? When Roshin arrives, Amalia tells her about Mr Newbury. “What do you think your parents are going to say when he speaks to them?” “Maybe they won’t let me play anymore.” “Why don’t you talk to them first?”

Amalia looks at her friend and smiles. When they go into the house, they realize that they’re too late. From the kitchen they can hear an old man’s voice, going on about something. They can hear a word here and there. His voice is not happy. The girls are sad and don’t feel like playing anymore. They decide to hang out at Roshin’s place and listen to music instead. The next morning Amalia is on her way to her drum room to learn the new beat she tried the day before. As she gets closer to the garage, she sees something yellow on the door. It’s a note and something is written on it, in old fashioned hand writing. It takes a long time for her to read it.

se You should u d your left han ou more w hen y t. p lay that bea

How odd! Amalia thinks, but when she sits on her stool and practises the beat she tries using her left hand more. The happy feeling returns! Whoever wrote the note was right. A few hours later she is learning how to do a paradiddle. It’s tricky! Left, right, left, left, right, left, right, right. She can do it five times in a row, but then something happens and she loses track of her hands. She hears a knock on the door and looks up. Oh, no... Old Mr Newbury. Amalia sighs and looks at him. What does he want now? “Is my drumming disturbing you?” she asks in the nicest possible way. “Well, yes! It sounds awful!” he answers in a snappy voice and walks out. Amalia looks at him in astonishment. Why does he even bother to tell her that? She’s still learning. It’s Monday afternoon when she sees another yellow note on the garage door. How weird is that? Two yellow notes, giving her advice on how to play. Amalia thinks about the notes all evening. Who wants to help her? And why?

Before Amalia goes to bed her parents want to talk to her. It turns out that Old Mr Newbury has spoken to them again and they have decided that she can only play certain days of the week and only three hours at a time. She is so angry she can hardly sleep all night. It’s too little time, what she learns she will forget by the next practice day. Amalia is still angry the following afternoon. She’s in her room looking at her drumsticks. She does the paradiddle on her bed, and it doesn’t make a sound at all, but she knows it much better now. She feels the beat in her body. As she looks out of her window, she sees Old Mr Newbury driving off. Immediately she gets up and walks to the garage. If he’s not at home, he can’t complain. She gets into her playing and loses track of time. When she’s done playing she’s nervous. Hopefully nobody heard her playing on a wrong day, but she k ee p o t notices that Mr Newbury’s car is back. e r B e s u r i s t s l o os e Somebody had heard her. The next day there is your wof t w hen another yellow note on the garage door. a n d s l a y . E v en Even though Amalia appreciates the advice, y o u p y o u p lay . she still thinks it’s strange.

She sticks to her practice days and works on hand and wrist techniques silently the other days. It works out well. Roshin and Amalia get two guitarists and a singer to join their band. They get better after each rehearsal and the yellow notes keep on coming, one after each time she has played. She looks forward to receiving the notes and her heart jumps a little every time she sees one of them. But one day she gets a note that says:

Dear Amalia, Unfortunately, this will be the very last note I can write to you. My husband has become very ill and I fear that he won’t live for much longer. I know my husband seems like a grumpy old man, but what you don’t know is that he’s got a heart of gold. In recent years, he’s just forgotten about it. What he hasn’t forgotten is how to play the drums. He played in jazz and blues bands when I first met him. Every time he heard you play he remembered that he could no longer play himself and it made him sad. To you it probably seemed like he was angry. Anyway, he went on and on about the mistakes you made and I decided to help you along a little. That way my husband’s knowledge wouldn’t be wasted. I listened to him and figured out what he was really saying and then I let you know how to improve by the yellow notes. Yesterday, in hospital, my husband asked how you were doing and I said you were still playing. Then he smiled and said: “She learns quickly that girl.” Well, I have to agree with him. Keep up the good work.

Best wishes, Mrs Newbury

From the Heart Doctor Grace Ryan works as a youth counsellor in Brisbane, Australia. She works with students who have psychological or other problems, or just feel lonely. The first thing she does is to let them write her a letter about something that is worrying them. She has lent us six letters. Of course we have changed the names!

Dear mum and dad, I know your jobs are really important and that you have to work. I know as well that the house costs a lot of money and so do the cars and our holidays. Of course the cleaner, cook, home tutor, gardener and my baby sister’s nanny need to be paid every week too, so I understand that you have to spend a lot of time working away from home. But wouldn’t it just be easier if you were at home a bit more? Anyway, I just wanted to say that I miss you both. Will you call me tonight, as usual?

Dear mum and dad, I never seem to be at home, but still I’m always at home ‘cos I’ve got two homes. At least that’s what you say, but I don’t agree with you. One week I have to eat my vegetables, the other I don’t. One week I can use make up, the next I can’t. One week I have to clean my room, the other, well, actually I always have to do that... I’m confused by your different rules and I can understand why you can’t live together but... I hate the fact that I have to move back and forth between the two of you. I would really like to talk to you about a different way for me to live. Love, Matilda

What’s happening to you? In the last month you went from being a grumpy, unfashionable and lonely old man (Sorry, but that’s the truth) to somebody who is always smiling, changing his clothes and keeps checking his mobile and e-mail. Also, you bought a new deodorant, that’s just weird. Grannie keeps smiling too, when she sees you. And why is Grannie “babysitting” me so much these days? I am old enough to spend nights on my own.

What Makes a Friend? Podcaster Mary Kepple is talking to four teenagers. Mary: Hi and welcome to this week’s podcast “Teenage lives – Life in

the fast track”. Today’s topic is friendship. How do today’s teen­ agers make friends and what do they value in their friend­ships? In the studio we have Kate, Billy, Airi and Soran, who I hope will help me answer my questions. Thank you for being here.

Mary: When I was young, people

became friends at school and doing their hobbies. Is it different these days? Billy, can I start with you? How do young people make friends nowadays?

Billy: Well, I think we meet

people partly in the same way as you did. You know, at school, doing sports and so on. And you become friendly with some of them and you become best friends with one or two.

Airi: And through hobbies, it doesn’t have to be just sports. Soran: I’ve met quite a few of my friends through other friends. You

know, friends of friends.

Kate: Yeah, me too. I’m a bit shy, though, so I find it difficult to get

to know new people easily unless there’s somebody there to help me. Do you know what I mean?

Billy: Yeah, I know what you mean. That’s how you and I became

friends. You were one of my cousin’s friends. You didn’t say much in the beginning and it was really difficult to get to know you.

Kate: But then, after a while, I changed and was really talkative and

charming. Right?

Billy: Well, talkative yes, charming, no. Ha-ha, no I liked you from the

start.

Mary: You are a boy and a girl. Can boys and girls really be friends

without there being complications?

Billy: You mean like falling in love? Kate: Ha-ha, yes, boys and girls can be just friends. In fact, I think it’s great

to have a friend who is a boy. After having talked to Billy about everything, I believe girls and boys have more in common than people think. They are more similar to each other than different.

Airi: I also have boys and girls as friends. Of course I don’t choose my

friends by their sex, I choose them because of their personality.

Soran: I think a lot of things have changed about how you make friends

since our parents were young. I mean now we have the Internet. I have friends, really close ones that I’ve never met, IRL, that is.

Mary: IRL? Soran: “In Real Life.” Mary: How is making friends over the Internet different from making

friends IRL then?

Soran: I think it’s better in some ways, because you talk, or write, to each

other before you meet. Sometimes you don’t even know what they look like but you know if you have something in common with them.

alone and together unit 1

Airi: I met my best friend over the Internet and we spent more than a

year texting and chatting before we met. I’ve never known anyone so well.

Billy: Also, sometimes you yourself need to pretend to be somebody else

and on the Internet you can try out different personalities to see which one fits you best.

Kate: But that’s not good, at least not in my book. You should be honest

about who you are. Even though you could use a different personality at times, Billy.

Billy: Ha-ha! Airi: But seriously, you must be careful too. People do

lie on the Internet. I once chatted with somebody I thought was 16 but who turned out to be 27. I was so angry!

Mary: But how about making friends at school or

somewhere else, like in a computer club or drama club. Does that work differently?

Airi: Yeah, at least for me it does. Sometimes I judge

people too quickly and don’t talk to them. Maybe just because of the way they are dressed, for example.

Soran: I do that, too. Just the other day I realized that my

friends all looked the same. You know, same jacket, same jeans, and same hair style. Then I looked at myself and, yes, I looked the same too. I thought it was kind of funny.

Mary: What sort of personality do you like your friends to have? Kate: I like my friends to be talkative and have a lot in common with me. Billy: I think honesty is the most important thing for me. They must be

honest and reliable. You must be able to trust your friends.

Airi: There’s nothing better than a friend that you can share your

serious thoughts with.

Soran: I agree with what you’re saying, and I also think it’s important to

have lots of fun with your friends.

Mary: Before we end this podcast, I have one final question. What do

you think is the worst thing a friend can do?

Hi everybody. I’ll try my best to inspire you. Well here I go! I’m interested in lots of things, but what I like doing most is swimming. I started swimming when I was a toddler. We were on holiday in Italy and there was a beautiful swimming pool at the hotel. Believe it or not, my parents told me that they relaxed at the side of the pool and I just swam all day! Mainly underwater! They told me that I could swim before I could walk properly! I’m a member of a swimming club and at the moment we’re preparing for a big competition. My age group practise swimming five times a week from Monday to Friday. I have all my best friends there, so it’s great to see them so much.

Sorry guys, I don’t think I can inspire anybody! I really haven’t got any hobbies. After I’ve finished my homework, I just relax in front of the TV, sit in my room and listen to music. I don’t feel the need to go out with friends or invite people around. All day long I’m with people at school and at the end of the day, it’s just nice to be on my own and have time for myself and my thoughts. Chun Liu, Bayonne, New Jersey, USA

Hi there! Well, my big thing, as some of you already know, is music. I play the piano in the school orchestra and I’m also a member of a choir. This means in fact that I don’t have much free time. I have two piano lessons a week and I sing in the choir on Wednesday and Friday evenings, as well. I also have to practise the piano on my own and that takes up five or six hours a week. Most of my friends do music with me and we often stay after practise chatting about and listening to music we like. So really you might say that I’m a bit of a music freak. invite bjuda in

Hi everybody. I’ll do my best to inspire you! Well, I’m really into sports. Every evening after school I go to the gym club and take a spinning or street dance class. It’s really good fun and I find I need it after a hard day at school. For me it’s difficult to sit down for long periods of time. I like to be active and move about. Most of my friends also do sport. I think it’s normal to mix with people with the same interests. Get in touch if you want to chat and get some one-to-one inspiration! Ilia Miasoedof,  Bellendale,  North Dakota,  USA

Hello there. I think most people would think I’m a bit of a geek. I’m not a very sporty person and in fact I don’t like any competitive activities or team games. I prefer to spend my spare time on my own or with just one or two close friends. I am a keen chess player and play at least once or twice a week with my best friend. I also like to relax in the evening playing games on my computer. I don’t play action games, though. I prefer ‘strategy games’, where you need to think or plan. On Fridays and Saturdays I play a strategy game online against opponents from all over the world. mix with umgås med geek nörd

Hi. Well it’s interesting to read all the different things you do, but I think I’m different from all of you. In my free time, I like going window shopping because I love looking at the new fashions. I like buying things when I have found the best deal. My friends all ask me to go with them if they want to buy anything. They say I’m a shopping expert! That’s great because I can’t stand shopping alone. I also like having fun with my friends. At the weekend I often go to a party. Does that inspire anybody?

She is so angry she can hardly sleep all night. Amalia is still angry the following afternoon. She is in her room and she does the paradiddle on her bed. It doesn’t make a sound at all, but she knows it much better now. She feels the beat in her body. As she looks out of her window, she sees Old Mr Newbury driving off. Immediately she gets up and walks to the garage.

Short Story Short stories: • have a beginning, a middle and an end • have problems that are solved at the end • can begin very dramatically (with people doing something or talking) • sometimes have an unexpected end • take place in a short time span, a few days, an afternoon or just 10 minutes • have few characters and are often told in the third person (he, she) An example of a short story is Amalia, The Drummer Girl.
