Si alguna asistencia no fuera registrada debidamente en el cuaderno o planilla, el profesor de la práctica la considerará como inasistencia. Las ausencias, feriados o cualquier otro motivo de suspensión de clase, deberá ser asentado en el cuaderno. V. PLANIFICACIONES


Se presentarán por duplicado: completas, prolijas, organizadas y legibles, con la debida anticipación, quedando una copia en poder del docente orientador. Las realizaciones “en borrador” no serán consideradas como válidas; tampoco podrán ser aprobadas en el momento previo a la clase. En cada plan de clase, debe especificarse: Nº de clase, área, tema, objetivos, contenidos, actividades, estrategias metodológicas, recursos materiales, evaluación, bibliografía consultada, de acuerdo a las indicaciones del profesor a cargo. En el caso del proyecto, se deberán completar los ítems enumerados en la ficha de cátedra indicada. Cada plan para ser aprobado debe dar cuenta de la apropiación clara de los contenidos a enseñar por parte del practicante. Las planificaciones deberán estar aprobadas por el profesor de prácticas o por el docente orientador 48 horas antes de su implementación. Caso contrario, el alumnos no podrán dar sus prácticas. El profesor de seguimiento suspenderá la intervención didáctica del alumno si comprueba la falta de la firma de la docente, pues interpretará que ella desconoce o no está de acuerdo con lo planificado por el alumno. Todo practicante deberá preparar el material didáctico que considere pertinente, fuera del contexto del aula donde realizará la práctica. El material se adecuará a los objetivos establecidos en el proyecto y al Diseño Curricular vigente. Se sugiere que a los efectos de ser evaluada su pertinencia y adecuación, sea presentada al docente orientador una muestra del mismo para su aprobación. El material didáctico debe ser claro, suficiente en cantidad y en el caso de contener textos, éstos deben poder leerse desde los últimos bancos del aula. Si algún informe, o plan de clase debiera re-hacerse, deberán entregarse el que fue corregido por la profesora de la práctica, y la copia original con sus indicaciones o correcciones. Las planificaciones no serán aprobadas, si presentan errores ortográficos, gramaticales o de contenido. Las actividades deben seleccionarse de acuerdo con los objetivos fijados en cada planificación.

VI. CONSIDERACIONES A TENER EN CUENTA PARA LAS PRÁCTICAS 1. Si hubiere algún inconveniente en las instituciones en que se realicen las prácticas (falta de docente, paro, falta generalizada de alumnos u otras situaciones impredecibles) el alumno deberá informar a las profesoras de la práctica antes de tomar cualquier decisión. Cada docente de Práctica establecerá medios de comunicación con los residentes para que ellos puedan cumplir con estos requisitos. 2. Para que la práctica se lleve a cabo, debe estar presente entre el 50 y el 65 % del curso, acordando esto con el profesor orientador debido a las características propias de los cursos.


3. Los días de lluvia, los alumnos deberán concurrir a sus observaciones/ prácticas, sin excepciones, salvo que las inclemencias del día así lo justifiquen. 4.

No se permite comer / beber / hacer uso del celular en las aulas.

5. El alumno podrá comunicarse con el profesor orientador sólo en la forma que este se lo indique, en el caso que este solicite que solo sea en la escuela de destino. No se permitirá llamar al docente orientador por teléfono celular. Y en todo caso, será el docente quien eventualmente se comunicará con los alumnos. 6. Antes de comenzar con las observaciones y/o prácticas la institución de destino podrá solicitar a los alumnos que concurran a una entrevista con la dirección del nivel/ departamento de la escuela destino o una instancia de presentación que permitirá establecer vínculos entre las escuelas asociadas y todos los actores involucrados en el proceso de Práctica y/o Residencia. 7. Sólo pueden ingresar a las aulas los alumnos que previamente se hayan inscripto como observa-dores o practicantes. 8. No se permite ingresar a las aulas una vez comenzada la clase, por lo que deben presentarse 10 minutos antes del inicio de la misma.

Una vez leído el presente documento, me notificaré completando los datos que figuran debajo de la línea, que luego cortaré y entregaré al docente de Prácticas como certificación de la Reglamentación existente para esta cursada. _____________________________________________________________________________

School N°16 Student´s Diagnostic The students are from the School N°16, which is a state run school. They are in 2nd Year of Secondary School. Moreover, they are 26 and from 13 to 14 years old. These students sit in orderly rows and their seats are chosen by the teacher. They are very talkative and they sometimes misbehave. As a whole group, they work successfully and do not have problems with the learning process. Their only problem is that the teacher has to translate all the time. They cannot speak English fluently so the teacher has to speak in Spanish all the time. They have some difficulties as regards Simple Present with the first singular pronouns. According to the vocabulary, they have a beginner level. There are some students who do not work or participate. In general they work and we can see a good connection among the teacher and the students. The tasks they do are simple and the majority of them are reading comprehension activities. During the lessons, they read and the activities and then they copy them from their books. Finally, they share the results with the rest of the class. The classroom The group of students is rather big but there is much space in order to guide them with their activities. So, the teacher walks around it most of the time. There are two big windows and on the walls we can see some posters in English.

Therapeutic Diet

Mediterranean Diet

Weight control Diet

Vegetarian Diet

● Students will read a text about Messi's diet. “The life of a celebrity” The time spent on the field must have a support of a great diet plan to fetch the desired results. One might not be able to match up Lionel Messi’s workout chart in a day, but one can definitely follow up his diet plan easily. 10 days before a football match: Messi never eats carbohydrates so the body maximizes the blood sugar available in ample, inside the body, giving the body a good shape. The diet is called low carb high protein diet,


where he usually drinks protein shakes and 7-8 glasses of water in order to avoid dehydration. 5 days before a football match: He always has some vegetable soup before every meal. A day before the match: Afternoon meal plays a crucial role, so Lionel always takes fish/prawn/chicken along with boiled potatoes plus green vegetables. Then, he sometimes eats an orange. 6 hours before the match: He rarely stays awake playing video games, he always sleeps. Even in case Messi wakes up, he never takes any wheat-related product as carbohydrates. Instead, he sometimes eats an egg for ideal balance of proteins and carbohydrates. 90 minutes before the match: Messi always eats fruits 70-90 minutes before the match. Banana, mango, apple, etc.

â—? Checking understanding: Students will play a game. Students will complete a true or false activity and then they will share the results on the board. â—? Write true(T) or false(F) 1. He always eats carbohydrates. 2. 10 days before a match he usually drinks protein shakes. 3. He always drinks 5 glasses of water. 4. He never has some vegetable soup before every meal 5. Messi never eats potatoes. 6. He always plays video games at night. 7. He sometimes eats an egg 8. 90 minutes before the match Messi always eats fruits. 3. CLOSURE:


● Whole class: Quiz game. The group will be divided in three groups. The teacher will stick a poster on the board with different images of healthy food. At the back of each image there will be a question they will need to answer to win a point. Questions: ➢ What do you eat in a Vegetarian diet? ➢ Which are the six classes of nutrients? ➢ What is nutrition? ➢ What do you eat in a Mediterranean diet? ➢ Which are the six classes of nutrients? ➢ What do you eat in a Therapeutic diet? ➢ Mention 5 healthy food. ➢ Mention 5 unhealthy food. ➢ Which are the different types of fats? EVALUATION CRITERIA Criteria for evaluating the learning process: How you are going to evaluate students’ learning to make sure the objectives have been carried out? ● The teacher will monitor group and individual activities. ● Learner´s interaction with their partners. ● Learner's participation in the lesson. Daily Plan 1 Self-assessment In this lesson I was really nervous as it was the first time I worked with Secondary students at a state-run school. The first activity was a bit difficult for them as they had to answer some questions about a video. It would have been better if I had written the answers of the questions


on the board. But I had written them on flashcards and they were small so some students could not see well. The second activity was better so I felt more comfortable. They started working with their classmates and it made me feel more relaxed. I decided to share the third activity with the whole class and it made students feel more confident. I really liked that part of the class as I started knowing them more. During the fourth activity, I was a bit disappointed as the statements that they had to match in the correct diet were quite difficult. However, I decided to walk around the class to help them. I think it was a good idea and it really helped them. The following activity was more interesting for them as it was about Messi. I started feeling more relaxed again as they looked quite interested in the activity. Sometimes I felt worried as they could not understand well some words and I did not want to speak in Spanish all the time. Finally, the last activity was really good. They loved that game and they all wanted to participate. The problem was that I included nine questions so it was not an even number. I had to add one question there and we could finish the game. All in all, despite the fact that I was really nervous I really enjoyed this class. The students helped me a lot as they were really interested in the topic. I think our choice of the topic helped me a lot.

MACROSKILLS: ● Reading ● Writing ● Speaking ● Listening AUTHENTIC MATERIAL: ● Videos about people talking about healthy and unhealthy food. ● PowerPoint Presentation about healthy activities. PROCEDURE/ DEVELOPMENT:


The development should display the actions the student teacher will take in order to carry out the objectives: all the activities delivered in the daily plan and the procedures used to present them. 1. OPENING/ENGAGING ACTIVITY: âž” Warm up: Students will read a text and complete the activity to revise the topics of the previous lesson. READING The following text is from a website for parents who want their teenage children to have healthy and balanced diet. The text contains advice for parents. TASK:Read the text and solve the activity below.

Normal Diet For Adolescents - 12 To 18 Years Of Age Changing Food Habits o

Teenagers are often very busy with school, work, and

sports schedules. Help your teenager plan his day if he will not be home for meals. Send healthy snacks or packed lunches with him. This will help him avoid filling up on "junk" food or high fat foods. They may need extra snacks to take with them or meals they can prepare quickly.


o

Your teenager still learns from your healthy eating habits.

Be an example and praise his good food choices whenever you can. Never criticize the way your child looks at this time of life. Teenagers can easily become too worried about their body image. If they are eating too much or too little, it can affect their growth. Talk with your doctor if you are worried about your teenager's eating habits. Food Group Choices o

Give your teenager at least one serving per day of a high

vitamin C food. Examples are citrus fruits and juices, tomatoes, potatoes, and green peppers. Your teenager also needs one serving per day of a high vitamin A food. This includes spinach, winter squash, carrots, or sweet potatoes. o

Choose lean meats, fish, and poultry foods for your

teenager. They are a source of proteins young people need in the period of growth. Also, give your teenager 2% milk and low-fat dairy foods. Avoid fried foods and high fat desserts, serve them only on special occasions. This will lower his risk for heart disease when he is older. âž” Reading Comprehension activity: What should parents do? â?– Tick the ideas that are not mentioned in the text:


➔ Parents should help their busy teenage children with planning their day. ➔ If the children do not eat at home, parents should give them money for healthy food. ➔ If the children do not eat at home, parents should pack healthy lunches for them. ➔ Parents can eat junk food, but they should inform their children about how unhealthy it is. ➔ Parents should never be critical about the way their children look. ➔ Parents should ask their doctor for information, if they don ´t know what to do ● The teacher will show a PowerPoint Presentation about the different diseases related to bad nutrition. ● https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1AcrKORBnW_7dt fl1hnv5lN7ab1Hkqy12nDGsDu5MCIQ/edit#slide=id.g1353 251a67_1_44 ● Students will answer these questions about the PowerPoint presentation on their folders, and then they will share their results with the rest of the class. For example: 1) What causes nutritional deficiencies? 2) What are the symptoms they present?


3) What is obesity? 4) What is anemia? 5) What is diabetes? 6) What is a cardiovascular disease? 7) What is osteoporosis? 2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES: ● The students will watch a PowerPoint Presentation. Then, they will have to say what activities that appear in the presentation they usually do. ● https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1HYqQ4xHmr3S0 VA53Pb5cAqetfVibsjEtdj1xg5AVV1w/edit#slide=id.p4 ● The students will be given a specific case of a person with a nutritional disease and they will prepare a diet which improves their life. ● The students will be divided into different groups and they will make some posters for the rest of the students of the school. They will have to include some advice to maintain a healthy diet. (20 minutes) 3. CLOSURE: ● Students will listen to a song. Then, they are going to complete a food pyramid that will be stuck on the board using the food worked in this class. Each student will have


a different kind of food and they will have to stick it in the part of the pyramid they think is the correct one. (http://www.songsforteaching.com/preschoolkindergartenearlyc hildhood/foodpyramid.php )

Food Pyramid Marilyn M. Linford There are five food groups on the food pyramid That I should choose from each day. Vegetables, grain, meat, dairy and fruit Will help my body work and play. Each food group supplies needed nutrients To help my body to grow. The fats and oils use sparingly, That's something that I should know. Chorus: Vitamins and minerals are part of the plan That keeps me healthy and strong. I will choose each day to do all that I can to help my body grow real strong. Calories within my food becomes energy. Energy my body will need, To help me think, work, and exercise. They will help me to succeed. Healthy body builders will choose carefully A healthy balance each day. Eating foods from each category Will help me live a healthy way. Repeat Chorus: I will choose each day to do all that I can to help my body grow strong


Food Pyramid ★ Finally, the teacher will give each student a fruit for break time. EVALUATION CRITERIA Criteria for evaluating the learning process: How you are going to evaluate students’ learning to make sure the objectives have been carried out? ● The teacher will monitor group and individual activities. ● Learner´s interaction with their partners. ● Learner's participation in the lesson. Daily Plan 2 Self-assessment At the beginning of this class I was really anxious as my teacher was there so I could not concentrate so much on the activities that we had to do. I was a bit distracted. The first activity was fine as the students participated in it. They wanted to read so it helped me not to feel disappointed. I tried to correct them in a kind way so they did not feel worried. I think the way in which I corrected them helped them to feel more relaxed. The second activity was a bit difficult as it had some words that they did not understand. I tried to help them with those words so they could work. The third activity was a bit messy as they had to copy the answers of some questions from the computer. I felt really nervous because they could not see well and I had to dictate them. I did not realise in that moment that I could copy the answers on the board. It would have been better but I did not take into account that. The fourth activity was interesting for them as they had to give some advice. The problem was that they lacked the knowledge to give advice, but I decided to help them so they could finish the activity. I felt really happy as they could write some interesting sentences which we shared all together.


I think that they really liked the PowerPoint presentations that we prepared. They were not accustomed to working with them. Finally, the last activity was quite good. They seemed not to like so much the song but they liked the game of the food pyramid. They really wanted to go to the board and stick their food flashcards. All in all, this lesson was pleasant so I enjoyed it a lot. I loved the way in which the students participated.

● Writing ● Speaking ● Listening AUTHENTIC MATERIAL: ● Fruits and vegetables ● Plastic objects ● PowerPoint Presentation about health PROCEDURE/ DEVELOPMENT: 1. OPENING/ENGAGING ACTIVITY: ● Warm up: Students will be shown the first part of a PowerPoint Presentation about different activities they can do to be healthy. This presentation will open a debate among the students on how they can improve their lifestyle not only by eating healthy food. The teacher will also ask the students what activities they do. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1jsS8Y_XboZ8_bS57sU18O5nRSinpeJOd41 7pmU-IWyk/edit#slide=id.p16

● After the discussion they will have to write three sentences of their own conclusions about what they have discussed. 2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES: ● The teacher will show the students different outdoor and indoor activities and sports. ( The teacher will stick the photos on the board.)


● Students will ask their companions which outdoor or indoor activities or sports they do and will complete a chart. Indoor activities

Outdoor activities

● Students will be shown a part of a PowerPoint Presentation about two people that have different lifestyles. According to what they have learnt along these classes, they will have to write some sentences about how they can improve the life of the unhealthy person. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/13fKSDzDmbfa2SRSU 9dl-enzb9uDcmgOHEZtnE40DBPE/edit#slide=id.p3 ● Students will have to read some descriptions of sports and they will have to guess what sport it is. Then they are going to write one riddle with a classmate and share it with the whole class. Which sport is it? ★ You usually do this indoors, but you can also do it outdoors and even in the sea. You move your arms and legs to move through water. Which sport is? __________


★ You often play this sport indoors, but you can also play it on a beach. There are two teams. First you have to throw a ball over a high net, then use your hands to stop the ball hitting the ground on your side. Which sport is it? _______ ★ People who play this sport are usually tall. They get points by throwing a ball through a net. Which sport is it? _______ ★ You play this sport outside with two teams. You have to pass the ball to other players with your foot and try to kick the ball into the goal. Which sport is it?_________ 3. CLOSURE: ● Students will complete a weekly chart and will comment on how their habits have changed in the last three weeks. EVALUATION CRITERIA: ● The teacher will monitor group and individual activities. ● Learner´s interaction with their partners. ● Learner's participation in the lesson. Daily Plan 3 Self-assessment This class was my last class with them. I was really relaxed as I knew how to work with them. I decided to enjoy that class as it was the last one of the first period of my practice lessons. The topic of the class helped me a lot as they really liked it. Some of them were not accustomed to doing sports and I think I appreciated the class because I made them think how important is to do some exercise.


The first activity was quite good as the students shared their own lifestyles. Maybe it would have been better if i had given them some phrases to use to speak in English. They could not write their own conclusions about what we discussed but I decided to make them tell their own experiences. I think that the second activity was not useful for them as they could not speak in English. I should have given them some phrases or questions to use. The third activity surprised me a lot. I thought that they were not able to do that kind of activity as they lacked the vocabulary. But they tried and they could write some interesting sentences. The fact that I walked around and helped them with some words made them feel confident enough to do the activity. The fourth activity was really good as they were interested in participating. They loved games so it was a good idea to choose that kind of activities. Unfortunately, we could not do the last activity as we lacked time. In the end, I was really satisfied with the students. They helped me improve and I learnt how to work with students who do not have a high level of English. It was a challenge for me and I was glad to have worked with them.

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES OR LEARNING OUTCOMES: At the end of the class, the students will: ● Be able to identify the different vitamins. ● Be able to explain the important benefits of doing exercise. ● Be able to explain in which way vitamins help our body.


MACROSKILLS: ● Reading ● Writing ● Speaking ● Listening AUTHENTIC MATERIAL: ● An article about the benefits of doing exercise. PROCEDURE/ DEVELOPMENT 1. OPENING/ENGAGING ACTIVITY: ● In connection with the previous class, the teacher will ask if they know the benefits of doing exercise. Students will brainstorm ideas that will be written on the board. The teacher will show them a video about the benefits of doing physical activity and finally they will altogether compare their ideas with the ones from the text. Then the students will write if the statements are true or false. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6YAtvXzgyZU

Write true(T) or false(F) 1) Exercise is an activity requiring physical effort. 2) Doing exercise does not improve our mood. 3) Doing exercise controls our weight. 4) Doing exercise promotes better sleep.


5) Swimming is anaerobic exercise. 6) 5-10 minutes of physical activity is bad. 2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES: ○ The teacher will elicit from the students if they think we need something in special to do exercise. Then, she will introduce the vitamins as an essential fuel for our body. 2. The teacher will give the students a text about why vitamins are important and then they will solve a questionnaire about it.

Why are vitamins important? A good, well-balanced diet is important for maintaining good health. We get most vitamins from food. If the food we eat doesn’t contain all the vitamins we need, we will probably develop a number of disorders. The word “vitamin” was introduced by Casimir Funk, a Polish scientist, in 1912. The prefix “vita” comes from Latin and it means “life”. Later research showed that Funk was right in recognizing the importance of vitamins for life. Scientists have discovered 13 different vitamins: A, B group, C, D, E, K etc.


Vitamin A prevents skin from drying out and it helps us see better in the dark. We can find it in fish oil, the yellow part of eggs (yolk), carrots and pumpkins. Vitamin B-1 helps the heart and nervous system work properly. Without it we could not grow. It is found in nuts, meat, green vegetables. Vitamin B-3 prevents a disease called pellagra. We can take this vitamin from meat, fish, cereals, dried beans and peas, nuts. Vitamin B-12 prevents anemia. Good sources of vitamin B-12 are eggs, meat and milk products. Vitamin C is necessary for strong bones and teeth and for healthy blood vessels. It also helps wounds heal faster. Food rich in vitamin C includes citrus fruits, tomatoes and raw cabbage. Vitamin D is necessary for normal bone formation and it prevents a disease in children called rickets. We can find it in fish liver oil. Ultraviolet rays from the sun help the formation of this vitamin in our body. Vitamin K is needed for the coagulation of blood. It is produced in our body but we can also find it in pork, liver, cabbage or spinach. Answer these questions 1)

Where do we get our vitamins from?


2)

What vitamin do you need if you do not see well in the dark?

3)

Where is vitamin-1 found?

4)

Why is vitamin C important?

5)

What vitamin can prevent rickets?

6)

What vitamin can stop bleeding?

● The teacher will stick on the board pictures about food. They will have to guess which vitamin we find in them and they will complete a chart on their folders. The they will share the results with the class. VITAMIN A VITAMIN B VITAMIN C VITAMIN D VITAMIN K

3. CLOSURE: ● Students will write a healthy day menu, trying to include all the vitamins seen in the class. Finally, they will share it with their companions. EVALUATION CRITERIA ● The teacher will monitor group and individual activities. ● Learner´s interaction with their partners. ● Learner's participation in the lesson. Daily Plan 4 Peer- assessment Mercedes welcomed the students kindy. She told them what they were going to work with. She listened to all the ideas the students had. I think it was a good idea since it encouraged them to say what they thought about the topic. During the activities she walked around the class to help the students who had some doubts about what they had to do. I believe that the topic of her class was really interesting as all the students seemed to be interested and they all wanted to participate. Some students at the back were misbehaving but Mercedes made them work immediately. It was excellent as she showed them that she was the teacher.


I think that she gave them the necessary amount of time to do the activities. The final task was really good as the students seemed to enjoy it.

MACROSKILLS: ● Reading ● Writing ● Speaking ● Listening AUTHENTIC MATERIAL:


● An article about the risks of not taking exercise. ● A video about Bigorexia. PROCEDURE/ DEVELOPMENT 1. OPENING/ENGAGING ACTIVITY: ● The teacher will ask the students what they think happens if we do not exercise. Students will brainstorm ideas about the topic. Finally, the teacher will introduce an article about what happens if we do not exercise. In addition to this, they will solve a true(T) or false(F) activity.

The risks of not taking exercise Introduction Whatever your age physical activity plays an important part in your health and well-being. Some people think it is only sportsmen and women who need to build physical activity into their lives. However everyone needs to keep their bodies working well in order to be healthy. Physical activity is necessary to stimulate the body's own natural maintenance and repair system. Your bones, joints and muscles - especially your heart - will actually stay younger if you keep them busy. If you are not physically active


you increase your health risks in many ways. Risks to you Coronary Heart Disease, strokes, high blood pressure, breathlessness, flabby body, little energy, stiff joints, osteoporosis, poor posture, overweight. Risks to your family Lack of energy for your children and grandchildren; a poor role model. Advice The three main components of being physically fit are stamina, strength and suppleness. Stamina: You need a well-developed circulation to the heart and lungs to give you the ability to keep going without gasping for breath. With stamina you have a slower more powerful heartbeat and will be able to cope more easily with prolonged or heavy exercise.

Strength: You need well-toned muscles to give you the ability to do physical work.


When your shoulder, trunk and thigh muscles are toned-up they will work well and you will not experience strains and injuries as often. Suppleness: Developing good mobility in your neck, spine and joints will prevent you spraining ligaments and pulling muscles and tendons. You will also be less likely to experience aches and pains from stiff joints.

● Answer true(T) or false(F) 1. Only sportsmen and women need to do physical activity. 2. Physical activity is not very necessary 3. Your heart will stay young if you do exercise 4. It is a risk to our family if we don’t exercise

5. The three main components of being physically fit are stamina, dopamina and suppleness 6. With stamina you have a faster more powerful heartbeat 7. You need muscles to do physical activity 2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES: ● The teacher will show the students a video about what Bigorexia is. Then the whole class will discuss about what


happens when a person does too much exercise. Finally, they will answer some questions. ● https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7M-fiVU0RK0 ● Answer these questions 1. What is bigorexia? 2. What is the name of the complex? 3. Can a beautiful body be accomplished without steroids? 4. According to the video, what is the percentage of men that are not satisfied with their bodies? 5. What is the effect of bigorexia? ● The

● Students will be divided in two groups: The “fitness” group( in defence of exercise) and the “lazy” group( in defence of not doing exercise). Each will defend the side they were given. The teacher will stick on the board one statement at


a time and they will have to defend or oppose according to their side. ● A person needs to do some exercise for 60 minutes a day. ● We can avoid doing exercise and stay fit. ● We need to take steroids to be healthy ● If we do exercise every day, we can eat junk food every day too. ● We have to go to the gym every day and stay there for 3 hours to be beautiful 3. CLOSURE: ● The students will play Bingo of the different activities seen in the previous classes.

EVALUATION CRITERIA ● The teacher will monitor group and individual activities. ● Learner´s interaction with their partners. ● Learner's participation in the lesson. Daily Plan 5 Peer-assessment At the beginning of the lesson Mercedes seemed to be a bit nervous since the teacher was going to observe her. However, throughout the lesson she seemed to be relaxed and involved in the class. She used the board in all the activities, which I think is a good tool that we have. She tried to make all the students participate and they seemed to be really interested in the class.


While they were reading, she tried to correct them in a friendly way which made them feel more confident. I believe she dealt with the topic of Bigorexia carefully. She tried to explain them what it was and I think that she made them realise what important it is. During the final task the students were a bit noisy since it was a game but it showed that they all participated in it.

Finally, they will share it with the whole class. ● It is when I do a lot of exercise, but I look in the mirror and I feel skinny( Bigorexia) ● It prevents skin from drying out and it helps us see better in the dark. We can find it in fish oil, the yellow part of eggs (yolk), carrots and pumpkins. ● It is a green vegetable. It gives us vitamin K. ● The imbalance between declining energy expenditure due to physical inactivity and high energy in the diet (excess calories whether from sugar, starches or fat) is the main determinant of the obesity epidemic. ● It is an outdoor and indoor activity. We play it with a ball and a net.( Basketball)

EVALUATION CRITERIA ● The teacher will monitor group and individual activities. ● Learner´s interaction with their partners. ● Learner's participation in the lesson. ● The teacher will evaluate their exams.


Daily Plan 6 Peer- assessment Mercedes seemed to be really relaxed as it was her last class. She welcomed the students in a friendly way which made them realise that they had to pay attention to her. Before the exam they made a revision which I believe was a good idea to make them revise for the exam. During the exam Mercedes walked around the class to monitor the students. She helped the students who had some doubts. I think that the way in which she talked to them made them feel at ease. In one of the exercises of the exam they were supposed to write some sentences to help improve the lifestyle of a woman. Some students did not know how to write them since they lacked knowledge. For that reason, she made them write just phrases or words to help the woman. I think it was an incredible solution as they really did not have a high level of English but they had been working excellently during the lessons.

Carlos Maschwitz School Student´s Diagnostic The students are from Carlos Maschwitz School, which is a billingual school. They are in 4th Year of Secondary School. Moreover, they are 23 and are from 15 to 16 years old. These students sit in orderly rows. They are very talkative and there are some students who always misbehave. The course teacher has to take these students out as she cannot work with them. The majority of the time they are talking and they do not participate in the class. As a whole group, they work successfully and do not have problems with the learning process. They can speak English when the teacher makes them speak. However, they do not speak English if the teacher does not tell them to do it. According to the vocabulary, they have and intermediate level. The tasks they do are according to their level. During the lessons we observed, they worked with a story


book which allowed them to share and exchange ideas. When they finished reading a chapter, they answered some questions on the board (all together). The classroom The group of students is rather big and there is no much space in order to guide them with their activities. However, the teacher walks around the class so as to see how the students work. There are two big windows and on the walls we can see some posters in Spanish. There is also a big board.

THE LANGUAGE FOR LEARNING : Simple Present Simple Past. THE LANGUAGE THROUGH LEARNING Language that could emerge from the learning ( our guess) Explain the way you plan to go about the 4Cs along your project: COMMUNICATION: Language will be used for students to understand the topics and also to allow them to express


themselves. CULTURE: Context will be used to make students involved in the developing of the different tasks as well as to foster students´ participation in every class. COGNITION: Cognition will be used as a tool for students to be active participants of the class. They will need to produce their own judgements and be able to verbalize their own ideas depending on the activity. CONTENT: The content of the lessons will be used and chosen especially for the needs and interests of the students. PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: Simple Present, Simple Past, Present Perfect, Conditional Sentences. GENERAL OBJECTIVES: By the end of the unit, Sts will : ● Develop their oral skills through students’ interaction ● Gain new vocabulary related to energy resources ● Demonstrate understanding of the concept of wasting of energy ● Describe different kind of processes ● Successfully engage in visual matching between concepts and images. ● Interpret visual information. ● Use language creatively and spontaneously ● Recycle previous knowledge to connect it with the new vocabulary ● Ask and respond questions related to energy ● TASKS/ OUTCOMES: ● The students will make a solar oven with which they will have the possibility to experience another way of cooking. Make a Pizza Box Solar Oven What you will need: * Recycled pizza box * Black construction paper * Aluminum foil * Clear plastic (heavy plastic laminate works best)


* Exacto or scissors. * Pen/Pencil/Marker * Tape * Newspaper Step 1 Have the student place the construction paper on top of the box and trace the outline. The tutor should then cut three slits, leaving the edge closest to the box opening. Step 2 Form a flap by gently folding back along the uncut line to form a crease. (Diagram 2) Cut a piece of aluminum foil to fit on the inside of the flap. Smooth out any wrinkles. Step 3 Measure a piece of plastic to fit over the opening you created by forming the flap in your pizza box. The plastic should be cut larger than the opening so that it can be taped to the underside of the flap. Step 4 Measure a 2nd piece of saran wrap. Tape this piece to the top side of the box. (This will make a total of two layers of saran wrap with a small layer or air in between). It is important to get these seals tight! Step 5 Cut another piece of aluminum foil to line the bottom of the pizza box and carefully glue into place. Cover the aluminum foil with a piece of black construction paper and tape into place. (Diagram 3) Note: the layer of Al foil underneath the black is optional. Step 6 Line the sides of the pizza box with rolled newspaper for added insulation. Step 7 Close the pizza box top (window), and prop open the flap of the box with a wooden dowel, straw, or other device and face towards the sun. (Diagram 4). (Mike and I found that the prop in not necessary with these boxes). Adjust until the aluminum reflects the maximum sunlight through the window into the


oven interior. EVALUATION: Apart from the assessment stemming from the outcomes, the students will be evaluated by means of a formal test in agreements with the cooperating teacher .

WHAT IS ENER GY? Energy is the capacity of a system to do work. That system may be a jet, carrying hundreds of passengers across the ocean. A baby’s body, growing bone cells. A kite, rising on the wind. Or a wave of light crossing a space. In moving or growing, each of these systems is doing work, and using energy. Every living organism does work, and needs energy from food or photosynthesis. Humans also create machines that do work for them, and that derive energy from fuels.

SOME OF THE MANY FORMS THAT ENERGY TAKES Mechanical Energy

● Potential energy, stored in a system ● Kinetic energy, from the movement of matter Radiant Or Solar Energy Coming From The Light And Warmth Of The Sun

● Thermal energy, associated with the heat of an object ● Chemical energy, stored in the chemical bonds of molecules ● Electrical energy, associated with the movement of electrons ● Electromagnetic energy, associated with light waves (including radio waves, microwaves, x-rays, infrared waves)

● Mass (or nuclear) energy, found in the nuclear structure of atoms Answer these questions:


2) What is energy? 3) Which system of work can you mention? 4) What is potential energy? 5) What is kinetic energy?

The two basic types of energy Directions: Determine the best match between basic types of energy and the description provided. Put the correct letter in the blank. (a) Kinetic Energy (b) Potential Energy (c) Both forms of Energy

● ______ 1. A skier at the top of the mountain ● ______ 2. Gasoline in a storage tank ● ______ 3. A race-car traveling at its maximum speed ● ______ 4. Water flowing from a waterfall before it hits the pond below ● ______ 5. A spring in a pinball machine before it is released ● ______ 6. Burning a match ● ______ 7. A running refrigerator motor


● The teacher will stick some photos on the board about the different forms in which energy comes and they will have to match with the correct definition. Firstly, they will complete it on their folders and then with the whole class.

★ Your muscles use this energy to generate mechanical force and also heat. Chemical energy is really a form of microscopic potential energy, which exists because of the electric and magnetic forces of attraction exerted between the different parts of each molecule - the same attractive forces involved in thermal vibrations. These parts get rearranged in chemical reactions, releasing or adding to this potential energy. (CHEMICAL) ★ Temperature is really a measure of how much thermal energy something has. The higher the temperature, the faster the molecules are moving around and/or vibrating, i.e. the more kinetic and potential energy the molecules have. (HEAT) ★ All matter is made up of atoms, and atoms are made up of smaller particles, called protons (which have positive charge), neutrons (which have neutral charge), and electrons (which are negatively charged). Electrons orbit around the center, or nucleus, of atoms, just like the moon orbits the earth. The nucleus is made up of neutrons and protons. (ELECTRICAL) ★ Sound waves are compression waves associated with the potential and kinetic energy of air molecules. When an object moves quickly, for example the head of drum, it compresses the air nearby, giving that air potential energy. That air then expands, transforming the potential energy into kinetic energy


(moving air). The moving air then pushes on and compresses other air, and so on down the chain. A nice way to think of sound waves is as "shimmering air". (SOUND) ★ Mechanical energy moves objects from place to place. You use mechanical energy when you kick a ball or turn the pedals of a bicycle. Other examples of mechanical energy include water flowing in a stream or tires rolling down a road. (MECHANICAL) ★ Nuclear energy is energy contained in the nucleus at the center of an atom. Nuclear energy is released when nuclei are split apart into several pieces, or when they are combined to form a single, large nucleus. (NUCLEAR)


3. CLOSURE: ➢ Study the pictures below and state the energy conversions that are taking place


EVALUATION CRITERIA ● The teacher will monitor group and individual activities. ● Learner´s interaction with their partners. ● Learner's participation in the lesson. Daily Plan 1 Self- assessment At the beginning of the class I was really nervous as in the lessons we observed the students were messy and talkative. They were also accustomed to doing the same activities all the lessons so I thought that they would not like our activities. During the first activity they worked very good. They participated and they seemed to be interested. For that reason, I started feeling more relaxed. I was also worried as the topics were new for me since I had never worked with Energy. I think that it would have been better if I had stopped the video and explained more the topic. They understood it but I could have explained more it so that the cooperating teacher was satisfied. The second activity was suitable as it helped them to understand the topic better. I think that it was a good idea to write the answers on the board. I learnt how useful the board is and how it helps the students to be aware of the activity that we are


doing. They liked the fact that I made them write the answers on the board and I believe it made the class more dynamic. The third activity was a bit difficult for them so I decided to help them. I gave some time to make them complete the activity, but then we shared it with the whole class. I think the fact that they had a break during the lesson helped me a lot since I had more time to concentrate on the following activities. Finally, we worked on the last activity. It was a bit difficult too as they were not accustomed to working with that kind of activity. I tried to help them and explained the topic again so they could do it alone. In the end, this class surprised me since I thought they were not going to work. However, they showed me that they liked the topic and I felt relaxed when they started to participate.

2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES: â—? Students will be shown a video introducing renewable and nonrenewable energy. After this they will have to answer a questionnaire.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYgChdCEEOA Answer these questions a. Which are the two types of energy? b. Describe and give examples of the types of energy c. Why is nonrenewable energy harmful? â—? Students will read a text about the different practical sources of energy. WHAT ARE THE PRACTICAL SOURCES OF ENERGY? The practical sources of energy include the fossil fuels, natural gas, petroleum (or oil), and coal. Fossil fuels are referred to as nonrenewable energy sources because, once used, they are gone. Scientists are exploring the practicality of other sources called renewable energy sources. These include sun, wind, geothermal, water, and biomass. The renewable energy resources are important in long range energy planning because they will not be depleted. Natural Gas: Sometimes natural gas is confused with gasoline, the fuel in cars. They are not the same. Gasoline is a mixture of liquids, and natural gas is mainly methane and is piped into homes and office buildings where it is used as an


energy source for heating, cooking washing, and drying. It is raw material to make other chemicals, and is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. This means it contributes little environmental pollutants when bummed. Petroleum or Oil : This is the black, thick liquid pumped from below the earth's surface wherever you see an oil rig. To make it useful, it is refined. Refining separates the gasoline portion which is used in transportation. Products from the remaining portions include synthetic rubber, detergents, fertilizers, textiles, paints, and pharmaceuticals. Coal Coal is the most abundant fossil fuel. It is not a widely used energy source due to the cost of mining and its impurities, which cause pollution (acid rain). There are two ways to mine coal; underground mining and strip mining. Disadvantage to these methods is the environmental change caused in the process. New ways of using coal are being explored, such as liquefaction, in which a product similar to oil is produced. Solar The sun is 93 million miles away and yet, this ball of hot gases is the primary source of all energy on earth. In the high temperature of the sun, small atoms of hydrogen are fused, that is, the centers of the two atoms are combined. Fusion releases


far greater energy than splitting the atom (fission, see below). Without sunlight, fossil fuels could never have existed. The sun is the supplier of energy which runs the water cycle. The uneven heating of the earth produces wind energy. Solar energy can be used to cook food, heat water and generate electricity. It remains the cleanest energy source and it is renewable. It is the hope for the energy source of the future and scientists at NREL are actively working on ways for solar energy to supply more our energy needs! Wind The unequal heating of the earth's surface by the sun produces wind energy, which can be converted into mechanical and electrical energy. For a long time, the energy of wind has been to drive pumps. Today windmills can be connected to electric generators to turn the wind's motion energy into electrical energy, and wind over 8 miles per hour can be used to generate electricity .It is a renewable, but unpredictable, energy source. In summary, energy sources can be classified as renewable or nonrenewable: Renewable

Daily Plan 2 Self-assessment Before the lesson started, I was quite nervous as I thought that my teacher was going to observe me. The first activity was good since it helped the students to revise the topics of the first class. It would been better I have made a little revision of the previous class so that it helped them with the activity. The second activity surprised me. They watched a video and they understood the two types of energy. However, I tried to explain them so that they were sure. They answered some questions and I decided to correct them on the board because it made them work. I was worried about some students at back since they did not work. I tried to encourage them but they worked for a short period of time. They really misbehaved as they were not accustomed to working. In the third activity I felt happy as they all wanted to read. We discussed the text all together so it was easy for them to do the following activity.


Eventually, we could finish all the activities that we had planned. That made feel more relaxed and satisfied. I enjoyed the class since some students who did not participate in the previous class participated in it.

PROCEDURE/ DEVELOPMENT: 1. OPENING/ENGAGING ACTIVITY: ●

Warm up

Students will be shown pictures with some of the uses renewable and non-renewable energy. They will have to identify them orally and why they think it is that kind of energy. After this, they will have to carry out a 5 sentence survey with 5 mates and they will answer what kind of energy is more frequently used at their homes. What kind of heater do you have?Is it electric or a wood-burning one?Gas? How often do you charge your

phone?

How often do you use a microwave or an oven? Do you have a fridge? Do you have a windmill or a water pump?How do you obtain the water you use? 2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES:


â—?

Think about the advantages and disadvantages of the use of renewable and non-renewable energy and write arguments for and against using the information in your folders.

â—?

Students will prepare an oral presentation presenting the results they got on the survey and their deductions about the energy used. They will have to talk about the advantages and disadvantages of the uses of renewable and non-renewable energy and some pieces of advice about their uses.

â—?

For example:

The advantages of non-renewable energy are found in two areas: cost and availability. Most of the energy-consuming products that run off of non-renewable energy sources have very little real competition from similar or comparable products that utilize renewable sources. For example, it is difficult to find a car or truck that runs off of rechargeable battery power, solar power, or electricity. If you did find one, it would be less efficient (wouldn't go as fast, be as practical, etc.) and cost a LOT more. The disadvantages, of course, are that they are non-renewable, meaning that when they're gone, they're gone. You can't replace natural gas, oil, or coal. Also, mining for these sources at such an intense rate can have devastating environmental effects.


Renewable energy, on the other hand, provides for cleaner, environmentally friendlier power sources. Once fully developed, they have the potential to be much more cost efficient (consider solar power; it's not like the sun is a marketbased commodity that can be over or under produced to obtain a better selling price). However, until this type of power source is fully integrated into the market, products utilizing it will remain more expensive, less readily available, and more of a unique alternative rather than viable competitor. â—?

You can use these useful phrases:

Personal opinion:

In my opinion/view, To my mind, To my way of thinking, I am convinced that, It strikes me that, It is my firm belief that, I am inclined to believe that, It seems to me that.As far as I am concerned, I think that the economic recession of the previous decade was

To add more points to the What is more, same topic:

Furthermore, Apart from this/that, In addition (to this), Moreover, Besides...

â—? Students will read a text about why we should conserve energy. This will open a debate among the teacher and the class about what they think we can do to conserve energy, what activities they can change to help the environment and they will also have to think which changes they could implement if they worked for the government. They will have to write a text about their reflections on their folders and then we will share them with the rest of the class.

Why Should we Conserve Energy? Energy needs to be conserved to protect our environment from drastic changes, to save the depleting resources for our future generations. The rate at which the energy is being produced and consumed can damage our world in many ways. In other words, it helps us to save the environment. We can reduce those impacts by consuming less energy. The cost of energy is rising every year. It is important for us to realize how energy is useful to us and how can we avoid it getting wasted.

To start saving energy is not a big thing at all. We can start saving the energy from our home itself, just by turning off the lights during day hours, washing clothes in cold water or using


public transport instead of using our own vehicle and later can implement these things on much wider scale at society level, then at city level then district level and finally at country level. You might notice a small change in your monthly bills by implementing these changes as they would be getting decreased more and more. With so many alternatives and so many techniques about there, if millions of people like us start doing these things, it will help us to help the environment and save much more money too.

3. CLOSURE: Students will be asked to prepare a quiz like “preguntados” with 10 questions to be solved in class. EVALUATION CRITERIA: ●

The teacher will monitor group and individual activities.

Learner´s interaction with their partners.

Learner's participation in the lesson.

Daily Plan 3 Self-assessment I think that the fact that I made a revision at the beginning of the lesson helped the students remember what we were working with. I believe that they did not need too much explanation as they worked hard during the lessons. In the first activity they worked well since they have a good level of English. I made them speak English because I knew they could use it. The second activity was a bit difficult for them because they did not know what to write. For that reason, I decided to walk around the class to help them think. I knew that they could do it alone. I believe that the groups were too big to work together. Some of them did not work since the other members of the group did the presentation for them. It would been better if I had divided them into groups of three. During the activity they were too talkative so the class was noisy.


I was glad to hear their oral presentations as they used the vocabulary we worked on. I tried to correct some oral mistakes so that they could improve their presentations. Unfortunately, we could not finish all the activities since we lacked time.

PROCEDURE/ DEVELOPMENT: 1. OPENING/ENGAGING ACTIVITY: The teacher will work on the common errors of the oral presentations of the previous class. They are : ● Definite article: The renewable energy ● 3rd Person + s : It require less maintenance. ● Pronunciation mistakes: available, renewable, nonrenewable, maintenance, advantages, disadvantages, generators, pollute. ● Omission of subject: Never runs out, can't be replaced, can be unpredictable. Warm up ●

The students will watch a video about Biomass

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZoPNJGi6ig Then they will do a true or false activity. 1. Biomass is a type of non-renewable energy. 2. Plants waste is burned to make steam. 3. The turbine is the last step of the biomass process. 4. You can produce biomass energy by using animal and plants waste. 5. Animal waste is collected in a digester. 6. Methane is collected from landfills to produce energy 2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES:


● Students will read a text about Biomass and they will have to answer some questions about it. What is BIOMASS? Biomass is biological material derived from living, or recently living organisms. In the context of biomass for energy this is often used to mean plant based material, but biomass can equally apply to both animal and vegetable derived material. Chemical composition Biomass is carbon based and is composed of a mixture of organic molecules containing hydrogen, usually including atoms of oxygen, often nitrogen and also small quantities of other atoms, including alkali, alkaline earth and heavy metals. These metals are often found in functional molecules such as the porphyrins which include chlorophyll which contains magnesium. Plant material The carbon used to construct biomass is absorbed from the atmosphere as carbon dioxide (CO2) by plant life, using energy from the sun. Plants may subsequently be eaten by animals and thus converted into animal biomass. However the primary absorption is performed by plants. If plant material is not eaten it is generally either broken down by microorganisms or burned: ·

If broken down it releases the carbon back to the atmosphere,

mainly as either carbon dioxide (CO2) or methane (CH4), depending upon the conditions and processes involved. ·

If burned the carbon is returned to the atmosphere as CO2. These processes have happened for as long as there have been

plants on Earth and is part of what is known as the carbon cycle. Fossil fuels


Fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas are also derived from biological material, however material that absorbed CO2 from the atmosphere many millions of years ago. As fuels they offer high energy density, but making use of that energy involves burning the fuel, with the oxidation of the carbon to carbon dioxide and the hydrogen to water (vapour). Unless they are captured and stored, these combustion products are usually released to the atmosphere, returning carbon sequestered millions of years ago and thus contributing to increased atmospheric concentrations. â—? The teacher will pause the reading to produce some reflective thinking among the students. She will ask some questions that students will have to answer in pairs. Answer these questions: 1. How is Biomass different from other energy sources? 2. How are these kinds of fuels different? 3. What effects do they have on Earth? 4. How do you think they can change our lifestyles if we replace nonrenewable sources of energy with them? â—? After this, the class will continue with the reading. The difference between biomass and fossil fuels The vital difference between biomass and fossil fuels is one of time scale. Biomass takes carbon out of the atmosphere while it is growing, and returns it as it is burned. If it is managed on a sustainable basis, biomass is harvested as part of a constantly replenished crop. This is either during woodland or arboricultural management or coppicing or as part of a continuous programme of replanting with the new growth taking up CO2 from the atmosphere at the same time as it is released by combustion of the previous harvest. This maintains a closed carbon cycle with no net increase in atmospheric CO2 levels.


Categories of biomass materials Within this definition, biomass for energy can include a wide range of materials. The realities of the economics mean that high value material for which there is an alternative market, such as good quality, large timber, are very unlikely to become available for energy applications. However there are huge resources of residues, co-products and waste that exist which could potentially become available, in quantity, at relatively low cost, or even negative cost where there is currently a requirement to pay for disposal. There are five basic categories of material: ● Virgin wood, from forestry, arboricultural activities or from wood processing ● Energy crops: high yield crops grown specifically for energy applications ● Agricultural residues: residues from agriculture harvesting or processing ● Food waste, from food and drink manufacture, preparation and processing, and post-consumer waste ● Industrial waste and co-products from manufacturing and industrial processes.

Answer these questions: 1. What is biomass? 2. How is biomass composed? Can you give some examples? 3. Why do fossil fuels contribute to increase atmospheric concentrations? What impact do you think it has on the environment? 4. What is the difference between fossil fuels and biomass?


5. Which are the basic categories of biomass material? Exemplify. What do you think is the most frequently used? Why? ● The teacher will introduce orally some consequences of the use of biomass Like all our energy sources, biopower has environmental risks that need to be mitigated. If not managed and monitored carefully, biomass for energy can be harvested at unsustainable rates, damage ecosystems, produce harmful air pollution, consume large amounts of water, and produce net global warming emissions. Assessing the potential role of biopower as a climate solution requires a look at its lifecycle carbon emissions—which vary according to the type of feedstock, the manner in which it is developed and harvested, the scale at which it is used and the technology used to convert biomass into electricity. The lifecycle carbon emissions of biopower should also be compared to the fossil fuels it’s displacing and other zero and low carbon solutions it’s competing with. ● Students will have to write a reflection about the use and consequences of biomass, taking into account what they have previously seen in the previous classes about renewable and non-renewable energy.

CLOSURE:


❖ The teacher will stick on the board some key words. Students will have to make a conceptual map using all the information of the class. They will have to add more words too. Then they will share it with the rest of the class. ❖ Biomass ❖ Sources ❖ Energy ❖ Consequences ❖ Fossil fuels ❖ Renewable ❖ Advantages EVALUATION CRITERIA: ●

Daily Plan 4 Peer-assessment It was a good idea that Mercedes started the class with the errors of the oral presentations of the previous class. It helped them correct and become aware of some pronunciation features. The students watched a video and then Mercedes explained it very carefully so that they could understand it. She made them watch it twice. I think that it was a good idea because they paid special attention to some names the second time. She was very clear and kind. I believe that it helped the students to pay attention to her. She corrected the activities on the board which was excellent since the majority of the students participated.


When they read the text, the teacher corrected them nicely and they tried to correct themselves. Mercedes walked around the class and monitored the students all the time. I think that it was a great lesson despite the fact that some students misbehaved during all the lesson.

2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES: ■

What is hydropower?

Hydropower is electricity generated using the energy of moving water. Rain or melted snow, usually originating in hills and mountains, create streams and rivers that eventually run to the ocean. The energy of that moving water can be substantial, as anyone who has been whitewater rafting knows. This energy has been exploited for centuries. Farmers since the ancient Greeks have used water wheels to grind wheat into flour. Placed in a river, a water wheel picks up flowing water in buckets located around the wheel. The kinetic energy of the flowing river turns the wheel and is converted into mechanical energy that runs the mill. In the late 19th century, hydropower became a source for generating electricity. The first hydroelectric power plant was built at Niagara Falls in 1879. In 1881, street lamps in the city of Niagara Falls were powered by hydropower. In 1882 the world’s first hydroelectric power plant began operating in the United States in Appleton, Wisconsin. A typical hydro plant is a system with three parts: an electric plant where the electricity is produced; a dam that can be opened or closed to control water flow; and a reservoir where water can be stored. The water behind the dam flows through an intake and pushes against blades in a turbine, causing them to turn. The turbine spins a generator to produce electricity. The amount of electricity that can be generated depends on how far the water drops and how much water moves through the system. The electricity can be transported over long-distance electric lines to homes, factories, and businesses. Hydroelectric power provides almost one-fifth of the world's electricity. China, Canada, Brazil, the United States, and Russia were the five largest producers of hydropower in 2004. One of the world's largest hydro plants is at


Three Gorges on China's Yangtze River. The reservoir for this facility started filling in 2003, but the plant is not expected to be fully operational until 2009. The dam is 1.4 miles (2.3 kilometers) wide and 607 feet (185 meters) high. Hydropower is the cheapest way to generate electricity today. That's because once a dam has been built and the equipment installed, the energy source—flowing water—is free. It's a clean fuel source that is renewable yearly by snow and rainfall. Hydropower is also readily available; engineers can control the flow of water through the turbines to produce electricity on demand. In addition, reservoirs may offer recreational opportunities, such as swimming and boating. But damming rivers may destroy or disrupt wildlife and other natural resources. Some fish, like salmon, may be prevented from swimming upstream to spawn. Technologies like fish ladders help salmon go up over dams and enter upstream spawning areas, but the presence of hydroelectric dams changes their migration patterns and hurts fish populations. Hydropower plants can also cause low dissolved oxygen levels in the water, which is harmful to river habitats.

● After reading, the students will have to do a mind map about the text. They will be divided into different groups. ● The teacher will give them some keywords to use. TYPES- EFFECTS- BENEFITS- ENERGY- RENEWABLEAVAILABLE ● The students will complete with the correct names of a hydropower plant.


â—? Students will read a text about the impacts

hydropower energy may produce in the different stages of the project. After it, they will answer some questions about it

Low-Head Hydropower Project Phases and Activities Impacts from a low-head hydropower project can result from activities that occur during each phase of the project: site evaluation, construction, operation, and decommissioning and reclamation.

What Activities Occur During the Site Evaluation Phase? The purpose of site evaluation is to determine whether a given site is suitable for a low-head hydropower plant. The technical and financial viability are specific to each site. Activities would include map studies, surface hydrology and floodplain mapping, delineation of drainage basins, and estimates of flow. The power capacity of a site depends upon the amount of water available and the head (i.e., the drop in elevation


from the water source to the power generator). An estimate of the power in kW is given by the following equation:

â—?

P = 7QH

In this equation, Q is the flow rate in cubic meters per second and H is the head in meters. A topographic survey would be performed during the site evaluation phase in order to establish the basic project design and layout to locate the intake and powerhouse; dam or weir; access roads, pipes, or canals; and other project components. Geological investigations would include drilling when necessary. Borrow areas for sand and gravel would be delineated and tested. If the site was not accessible, access roads would need to be constructed to support such activities. Ecological studies would concentrate on the terrestrial and aquatic biota of the project area. Surveys might be conducted during this phase to determine whether cultural resources are present in the project area.

What Activities Occur During the Construction Phase? A large portion of the low-head hydropower project area could be impacted by site preparation activities such as clearing and grading; construction of the intake system, which could include a dam or weir; construction of access roads, canals, tunnels, and pipelines; construction of the powerhouse and installation of the turbine and generator; construction of an electrical substation and transmission line; and preparation and use of material and equipment laydown areas. Concrete ingredients (e.g., sand, aggregate) may need to be extracted and hauled to the site if an appropriate borrow area cannot be found on the site. A refueling station (with diesel and gas storage tanks) would likely be used during construction.

What Activities Occur During the Operation and Maintenance Phase? No additional land-disturbing activities and associated impacts are anticipated during the operation phase. Routine operation of a low-head hydropower facility to produce electricity would most likely be automated, and not require on-site personnel. Weekly monitoring and maintenance activities would ensure safe and consistent operation. Maintenance activities could include periodic replacement of various facility components.


What Activities Occur During the Decommissioning and Reclamation Phase? Decommissioning of a low-head hydropower plant could range from mothballing to full removal of turbines, generators, and other equipment for reuse or for scrap. Buildings, concrete pads, foundations, and intake and tailrace facilities would be removed. Any dam or weir could either be removed or left to maintain the head pond for adapted aquatic biota and recreational activities. A decommissioning plan would need to be prepared and approved prior to the actual decommissioning of the project. Underground components would be removed to a depth of at least three feet to ensure an unobstructed root zone for revegetation. More deeply buried components might be abandoned in place. Following removal of site components, site reclamation and revegetation would mitigate some impacts, such as soil erosion, habitat fragmentation, and visual impacts.

Daily Plan 5 Peer-assessment At the beginning of the class Mercedes seemed to be nervous as our teacher was going to observe her. However, throughout the class she was great. She explained the topics clearly. The majority of the students worked. I think that they worked hard since Mercedes encouraged them all the time and monitored them too. The fact that she explained carefully the video of the previous class helped them do the activities easily. I believe that the choice of activities was excellent as they did not have problems while doing them. While the students were reading, she tried to correct them in a friendly way which made them feel relaxed. All in all I think the students worked really hard and all the activities were done.

PROCEDURE/ DEVELOPMENT: 1. OPENING/ENGAGING ACTIVITY: ● Warm up: ● Students will share with the whole class their mind maps of the previous class. 2. DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES: ●Complete this text about how hydropower works. Turbines and generators convert the energy into electricity, which is then fed into the electrical grid to be used in homes, businesses, and by industry. There are several types of hydroelectric facilities; they are all powered by the kinetic energy of flowing water as it moves downstream. The energy of this water cycle, which is driven by the sun, can be tapped to produce electricity or for mechanical tasks like grinding grain. Water constantly moves through a vast global cycle, evaporating from lakes and oceans, forming clouds, precipitating as rain or snow, then flowing back down to the ocean. Hydropower uses a fuel—water—that is not reduced or used up in the process. Because the water cycle is an endless, constantly recharging system, hydropower is considered a renewable energy. When flowing water is captured and turned into electricity, it is called hydroelectric power or hydropower.

CLOSURE: Students will be shown a map of Buenos Aires Province with Geographical features. The class will be divided into groups of 4 students and students will decide how they would use the different resources studies in the areas they have been assigned. Then they will be asked to share their conclusions on how we can reduce the use of non-renewable energies through the use of the ones they have studied. Daily Plan 6 Peer-assessment Class 6th was Mercedes´ last class so she seemed to be relaxed. I think that it was a good idea to make a short revision before the exam. The first activity in which they had to complete with the names of a hydropower plant was a bit difficult for them because some of them did not copy the drawing that Mercedes had made for them. However, she helped them do the activity on the board. She made the copy and correct the first activity on the board which I believe was a good idea. During the second activity Mercedes walked around the class and monitored them. She was really kind with the students. She helped the ones who did not understand the activity so that they could start working. Some students were misbehaving so that she stopped the class and made them behave properly. I think that the way in which she talked to them made them realise that they had to behave properly.


Finally, the students started doing the final exam and Mercedes explained it well.

3. CLOSURE: Students will be asked to prepare a quiz like “preguntados” with 10 questions to be solved in class.

EVALUATION CRITERIA: ●The teacher will monitor group and individual activities. ●Learner´s interaction with their partners. ●Learner's participation in the lesson. Daily Plan 7 Self-assessment At the beginning of the class I decided to revise all the topics we had been working with. I was really happy as they remembered the majority of the topics and they were able to explain them. I believe the revision help them realise how much they knew about energy. After that , they started working on the final task. I felt relaxed since they worked really hard. I divided them into small groups so the class was not noisy. I realised that it is better work with small groups so that each member has something to do.


They seemed to be engaged in the activity. I walked around them to help them. Some of them were a bit lazy so I had to make them work. Finally, they could not finish the last activity so they had to prepare for the following class. The class was good and I felt more confident with group management. Final Report Throughout the period of my practice lessons I have learnt how to work with a different method of teaching. I have learnt how different lessons we can prepare to engage our students with topics of real life. I think that we can teach through a different method which makes students feel more interested in our classes. I have understood that students want to learn and participate more during the lessons if we employ activities which they can take some significant learning. CLIL makes them think and create knowledge through meaningful tasks. At the beginning of the process of planning I did not know how to plan a CLIL class, but after watching some examples of CLIL lessons and the material we had to read I realized how I could plan a really interesting class. When I have to plan for my lessons at work now, I try to employ some videos or PowerPoint presentations to make my students feel more engaged. It is sometimes a bit difficult to leave behind the old methods of teaching, but I have understood that not only are my students more involved in my lessons but also I am. Moreover, I have learnt that it is more useful to make them “create” and “discover” things using different kinds of tasks, instead of using grammatical exercises. Apart from that, I have improved my own way of teaching and group management. I have never worked in a Secondary School. At the beginning of my practice lessons, I was really nervous. I did not know how the students were going to treat me. But in the end, I realized that I was able to work with that level and I really enjoyed it. In conclusion, after finishing my practice lessons I dare to say that I am extremely delighted and satisfied with this year.
