I’m really happy with the choices! I think writings and oral tests based on the books are always a good option...the oral evaluation doesn’t necessarily need to be about the story, but about the person’s comprehension of the plot and their opinions. Teacher 2
Levando-se em consideração os modelos de avaliação que temos hoje, acredito que os seguintes readers seriam boas escolhas para os respectivos níveis:
Inter 1: Murder on the Orient Express, Agatha Christie. Para a prova de múltipla escolha.
Inter 2: 1984 George Orwell. Para a prova oral.
Inter 3: The Hound of the Baskervilles, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Para o Writing Test.
Como existe a possibilidade de alterar os modelos de avaliação, poderíamos fazer um trabalho ainda mais interessante valorizando quem realmente leu os livros. Activities for Class Work and Homework Phase I, II, III I. Pre-selected Readers according to title, author, level, students' and teachers' interests, publisher, availability and affordability.

II. Summaries of the pre-selected readers were posted on teacher online for Teachers to read and choose the three most appropriate readers. Literature Literature We'd like to hear from you about the different formats of evaluations/tests. According to your experience and studies in working with readers, which test format is more applicable to the selected readers? Teacher 3
First of all, I believe what we are lacking right now is a more elaborate form of evaluation, something that requires students to expand on the themes discussed in each book. Bearing that in mind, I think we should work on two fronts: we should add comprehension questions to each Final Test, as well as having Oral Projects related to the Readers in all 3 intermediate levels. These Oral Projects would replace the current Oral Tests and their focus should be for students to do some research on a topic related to each Reader. Here’s what I thought for each of them:

Murder on the Orient Express: students could be asked to research and present their findings on a World’s Unsolved Mystery. It could be a crime or anything that remains a mystery to date. We could exemplify in class by talking about the Bermuda Triangle, for instance, or anything that illustrates the goal of the Oral Project.

The Picture of Dorian Gray: I don’t know yet what we could do with this one, but I’ll think about it.

1984: Students could do a research on someone who stood up against an authoritarian rule in History, someone like William Wallace in Scotland, for example.
With these Oral Projects, I’d expect students to go beyond the Reader and do a proper research on something. The questions in the Final Test would be our “scare tactics” in case students think they don’t really have to read the book to do the project.
So that’s how I think the evaluation system should be with the Readers. Climax (cc) photo by theaucitron on Flickr (cc) photo by theaucitron on Flickr What is literature?

What is the importance of literature in your life?

Can you name literature characters that made a special impact on you?

What makes a book a classic? Why do we read them? “São o romance e o filme que põem à mostra as relações do ser humano com o outro, com a sociedade, com o mundo. O romance e o cinema transportam-nos para dentro da História e pelos continentes, para dentro das guerras e da paz. O milagre de um grande romance, como de um grande filme, é revelar a universalidade da condição humana”. “... em toda grande obra de literatura, cinema, poesia, música, pintura, escultura, há um pensamento profundo sobre a condição humana”. “É no romance ou no filme que reconhecemos os momentos de verdade do amor, o momento das almas dilaceradas, e descobrimos as profundas instabilidades da identidade, como a multiplicidade interior de uma pessoa, a transformação dos seres, que levados pela torrente de acontecimentos, podem nos tornar heróis, mártires, covardes ou carrascos”. "Blown Away"

Dry lightning cracks across the skies
Those storm clouds gather in her eyes
Her daddy was a mean old mister
Mama was an angel in the ground
The weather man called for a twister
She prayed blow it down

There’s not enough rain in Oklahoma
To wash the sins out of that house
There’s not enough wind in Oklahoma
To rip the nails out of the past

Shatter every window 'til it’s all blown away,
Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away
'til there’s nothing left standing,
Nothing left of yesterday
Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away,
Blown away

She heard those sirens screaming out
Her daddy laid there passed out on the couch
She locked herself in the cellar
Listened to the screaming of the wind
Some people called it taking shelter
She called it sweet revenge

Shatter every window 'til it’s all blown away,
Every brick, every board, every slamming door blown away
'til there’s nothing left standing,
Nothing left of yesterday
Every tear-soaked whiskey memory blown away,
Blown away Kseniya Simonova's performance, which made her win Ukraine's Got Talent (2009), is one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I was especially impressed by how she managed to tell an entire story pushing around sand on a table. She uses nothing but sand and her hands to create images. The story mixes love with war, thus bringing quite a few people to tears. It's emotional, creative, and mind-blowing. It's definitely a must-watch video. I thoroughly recommend it. Do I like it?
Why do like it?
Why grounds do I have for saying that I like it?
Would I recommend it? Writing a review
