First, this is in a zip file. I include a 7 page packet in .pdf format (essay,vocabulary list, page to write information, t/f page, page with rubric for retelling the story with personal questions at the end, questions/answers for pair work and rubric, writing section - answering 1 of the questions, page with how I use it, and POWER POINT as well.
First, this is REAL, a REAL story about the future of flying cars! Very cool, and it got my students' attention immediately. They LOVED the you tube video as well! I go to the internet (CNN etc) to find good REAL stories to present for conversation. Works so very well! Lots of work, but it is so worth it! I have so many more stories I will be putting up: Moses Hamilton, the painter who inspires, the "ciudad blanca" discovered in March 2015 in Honduras, the psychology of Ikea, etc.
Enjoy, and become a follower!
