It is designed to be used with a short video clip which is available on the BBC website.
This resource can be used with a whole class but contains specific scaffolds for the EAL learner. There are visuals and vocabulary to ensure that prior knowledge is activated to enable the listener to understand the content of the clip. The notetaking scaffolds are used to focus children when listening to the language of presentation. They encourage collaborative work in order to fill in any gaps in the information that they have been listening to. There are further resources that can be used on an interactive whiteboard, or can be printed out, to focus learners on the particular language used in presentation. These resources would be a good starting point in preparation for an oral presentation or an extended piece of writing.
On the right hand side of this page are a number of documents that you can download for free.
