All connected

This unit is focused on the question: Is internet harmful or useful?

Material:

Flanders Lane play list (videos 5 to 9)

 

Texts from different sites:Advantages and Disadvantages of the Internet Pros And Cons Of The Internet The Pros and Cons for Internet Communication Write 10 advantages and 10 disadvantages of using the internet..

Of course different documents will be given to students to watch or read at home in order to focus on class about sharing information and communicational situations to solve problems such as “speaking to the mayor, creating a poster or making a public speech at the city hall…”

Each family has to consider the advantages and the dangers of internet.

As the mayor, I need to know if internet is really necessary, so I’ve decided to organize a city council about that.

First step: explaining the potential of internet

Internet has been cut in Flanders Lane. So to have internet again, each family has to write a small paragraph about the good uses of internet and I will see each family to have their impressions.

In this step we can work on the structures of the aim and on transition words ( logical/chronological)

Second step: protecting children against dangers

Each family has to create a poster against internet dangers and has to be able to justify it.

In this step we can work on the structures of the advice, the interdiction, modalities and negative orders

Third step: organizing the city council

Each family has to choose one or two members who will make a speech for the city council and they have to write a petition.

In this step we can work on the strategies of a speech, melody and rhythm

Bonus step: participating in Safer Internet Day in February

All families will think about a video project sent to http://www.saferinternetday.org/web/guest/sid-2015
