Join #twima2

After the success of The World is My Audience in 2014, we are ready to jump into The World is My Audience 2 - Dreams around the world.

#twima, The World Is My Audience, was a first attempt at gathering the world's classrooms for a collaborative poetry project.  It was a huge success, not in numbers of downloads (yet), but in the impact it had on teachers and students making connections with classrooms worldwide.

#twima2 is the follow-up project.  Again, the goal is to collaborate with the world's classrooms on a writing project.

So, fill in the application form, and get ready to dream and connect with the world!

"Romeo and Juliet" 4 centuries later

Today we publish a new work from IES Vicente Medina in Archena (Murcia). The students 3ºESO C have done an amazing activity basad on the classic story "Romero and Juliet". 

Inmaculada López, the English teacher tell us:

No doubt “Romeo and Juliet” would have been a completely different story if it had been written nowadays. In 3º ESO students have tried to reflect how much things have changed since the 16th century, especially and luckily for women, at least in the most developed countries.
After reading the play, students from 3º ESO C had to choose their favourite scene and adapt it to modern times. It has been a long process, but, on the whole, the experience has been valued very positively by the students and their teacher, and most importantly“Romeo and Juliet” will never be forgotten (students’ words). Obviously, this makes the teacher feel  over the moon and Jupiter :-)
The first step was to write the script of their scene in a google document and share it with their teacher:

The second step was to record their video and upload it to either Youtube or vimeo. Here are the results. Congratulations to all of them. They’ve done a great job:
