EVALUATION ABOUT "ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES" PROJECT


ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES


This activity has been our last teamwork task. 
We usually made these kind of tasks to review units of English.
On the other hand, today we are going to change our evaluation system.
The teachers evaluate with rubrics your tasks but now we are going to evaluate them in a different way.

How is it going to be?
  • The final score will be up to 100 points.
  • 50 points will be given by the teachers. (Using the rubric)
  • 26 will be given by self-evaluation. (Using the rubric, it is done individually, you will divide by two your total score)
  • 24 will be given to each member of the team. (Give out maximum 24 points to each member of the group)

You are going to create a paper as draft. You have to include:
  • Your name and members of your group.
  • Your self-evaluation with the rubric. (Maximum 26 points)
  • Your team member's points. (Maximun 24 points)


Here it is the rubric

19th Century in SPAIN (Unit 13-Science Y6)

In this video you will know a bit more about one of the most important characters during this century: FERDINAND VII.

 

THE SPANISH WAR OF INDEPENDENCE.
  • In 1808:
    • Napoleón Bonaparte, the Emperor of France, invaded Spain.
    • The King Ferdinand VII was forced to abdicate.
    • Napoleon's brother, Joseph Bonaparte, became king. 
    • Opposition to his reign led to the Spanish War of Independence.
  • The Spanish parliament, or Cortes, took refuge in Cadiz. In 1812 they wrote the first modern Constitution, the Constitution of Cadiz (La Pepa).
      • It limited the king's power.
      • It stablished the right of citizens, including the vote for 25 year-old men. 
THE RESTORATION OF FERDINAND VII:

  • In 1814 Ferdinand VII was restored as King. Initially, he did not accept the Constitution and he ruled in an authoritarian manner.
  • In 1820 Ferdinand VII was forced to accept the Constitution after the revolt. Three years later he was restored as an absolute monarch with the help of the French. 
  • The political chaos in Spain caused an independence movement in the Spanish colonies in Spain.
    • In 1824 all the American colonies except Cuba and Puerto Rico were independent. 
CONSERVATISM AND LIBERALISM:


In 1833, Ferdinand's daughter, Isabella II, came to the throne. During her reign there were conflicts between two groups:
  • Conservatives, they had traditional values, and supported an absolute monarchy. 
  • Liberals, they wanted reforms to modernise the country. They supported the Constitutions, and favoured limitations on the powers of the monarch. 
There were many coups d'etat by army officers and in 1868 Isabella was exiled. 

In 1873, the First Spanish Republic was proclaimed, but it lasted less than a year. In 1874, the monarchy was restored under Isabella's son, Alfonso XII. 

LET'S PLAY WITH THIS ACTIVITIES AND REVIEW THE LESSON.

This short video will explain to you how it was started a new period in the history of Spain:



THE SPANISH WAR OF SUCCESSION:

  • Charles II, died in 1700, without descendants.

Tengo el placer de presentaros los post publicados por los alumnos de 6ºB en la asignatura de Science.


Estos posts han sido publicados en el blog de aula:

Los alumnos han utilizado la herramienta de la web 2.0 http://popplet.com/ para hacer sus propios diagramas o mapas conceptuales sobre la unidad 12 THE MIDDLE AGES. 

Después han utilizado sus propios mapas conceptuales para construir un vídeo utilizando la web tool http://www.screencast-o-matic.com/. Ese vídeo es "upload" por ellos mismos a su propio canal de youtube para terminar con todo ello, en su propio blog, construyendo un post dedicado a resumir y entender mejor la unidad.

Más tarde lo han enviado a una asignación por EDMODO nuestra red social.

    REFLEXIONAMOS SOBRE EUROPA

    ¿Te atreves a reflexionar y conocer mejor Europa?

    Últimamente habrás escuchado a los mayores hablar sobre la situación actual de algunos países miembros, entre ellos el nuestro. Comenta algo sobre ello.
    Para superar las dificultades que surgen en nuestro día a día hay que mantener una ACTITUD POSITIVA y creer que podemos y somos capaces de afrontarlas. Eso te hará más feliz y hará que los demás sean felices contigo. ¡A  todos nos encanta rodearnos de gente positiva! Tú eres una de esas persona. 

    Echa un vistazo a este vídeo.


    • Escribe TRES palabras con las que te identificas.
    • Escribe tres palabras que todavía no has desarrollado o alcanzado, pero que te gustaría poder a alcanzar.
    CÍRCULO DEL ÁNIMO

    Reúne al grupo en un círculo. Una persona debe empezar a decir una meta o deseo que cree difícil de conseguir. La persona que esté a su izquierda le dirá en voz alta un grito de ánimo para intentar convencerle de que ES POSIBLE. (Ejemplo: ¡Tú puedes hacerlo/ conseguirlo porque eres…., porque una vez….!)
    El siguiente hará lo mismo y la persona de su izquierda le animará. Así lo harán todos los miembros del grupo. Este juego puede llevarse a cabo muchas veces cambiando de sitio a las personas en el círculo.

    ¡NO LO OLVIDES! Para ser positivo:

    • Aumenta en cantidad y calidad las relaciones interpersonales.
    • Busca  y realiza actividades que te hagan sentir bien o hagan sentir bien a los demás
    • Identifica y muestra a los demás tus cualidades personales.
    • Cultivar el agradecimiento, el optimismo y la esperanza.

    THE CHRISTIANS KINGDOMS (Unit 12-Science Y6)

    We will continue learning about how things happened in the Iberian Peninsula during the Middle Ages.
    Remember first were the Visigoths then the peninsula was invaded by the Muslims, and now we are going to learn how the Christians reconquested The Iberian Peninsula.

    This video will show you how everything took place.


    THE CHRISTIAN KINGDOMS

    • The long period of expansion of the Christian kingdoms started only eleven years after the Muslins invasion. It is called RECONQUEST.
    • By around 1230, there were FOUR LARGE KINGDOMS:
      • KINGDOM OF PORTUGAL, it was independent from Leon.
      • KINGDOM OF NAVARRE, Navarra and La Rioja.
      • CROWN OF ARAGON: Catalonia Counties, Kingdom of Aragon, Valencia and Majorca.
      • CROWN OF CASTILE: Includes the Kind of of Castille and the Kindom of Leon. Later it included Al Anlandalus. 
    • In 1479, Isabella I of Castille married Ferdinand II of Aragon, and the Crown of Aragon and the Crown of Castile were united. 
     












    MEDIEVAL SOCIETY
    There were three groups of people:

    • NOBLES: they were rich and they were the owners of the land.
    • CLERGY: They were monks, bishops and priests.
    • PEASANTS: It was the biggest group, they cultivated the land. 

    CULTURAL HERITAGE.
    • In the 12th Century were founded the first universities. The first one was the University of Palencia.

    • In the early Middle Ages, churches were built in Romanesque Style: thick walls and small windows. 

    • After the 13th Century, palaces and cathedrals were built in Gothic Style. They had pinted arches and large stained-glass windows. 


    LET'S DO THE QUIZZ AND REVIEW ALL YOU HAVE LEARNT.
