Tuesday, 16th of September 2014

Hello everybody!

Today has been the first day of class of Social Sciences in this new school year. I think that our class it's really good, because we are all friends and we met Paqui two years ago, so I would like that the class works well. Our class is composed by two different classes: 4th A and 4th B.

Well, today in the class of Social Sciences, Paqui has given to us a sheet which contains information about the Social Sciences assessment criteria and some useful advices to pass the subject. Paqui has explained us how the final mark is divided into different percentages:

-50% of the mark will correspond to the marks of the exams.

-50% of the mark will correspond to the work of the classroom and homework (25%), notebook (10%) and finally the student's attitude in the classroom (15%).

Paqui also has explained how we should work during this school year.

After this, Paqui has given us the books that we will use during the year; but there are some problems, because there aren't enough books for everyone, so many of my classmates have to print the books. Also, she has talked about the organization of the notebook.

We have also included the first words in our Glossary, like: resit exam, damn, vow, brochure, raring to go, post... Then, Paqui has started explaining a new project about Renaissance art. The work has to be a brochure; she has told us that we will have to use photos, tray to reduce the information and contents, look for curiosities, trying to make it interesting, because if not it would be like a History book. We have to look information in our class book, but also in other sources, like internet or encyclopedias. Paqui has told us that we have to do this work correctly, because it could be very important for the mark.

Paqui has explained how we will write the journals everyday: a different person will write the journal each day on the blog and the rest of the classmates have to comment on it. Also she has explain the correct way to write the posts, and how we have to use the blog and enter on it. Today I' m the student who should write the journal.

Finally, Paqui has given to us a white sheet to write there our emails. It was a good lesson.

That's nice, Nuria! But I think that you could say "Social Sciences lesson" in stead of "class of Social Sciences" :)

Hello Nuria,

You've forgotten to include the tag 4th ESO A-B. You could create more tags, like Nuria Iniesta or projects...

You can also explain why you've chosen the picture you've included. Add the caption (pie de foto)of the picture as well: this would have to include the name of the painting and the author.

There are some spelling mistakes and some mistakes with the past participle of some verbs. If you read your post again, you will find them. Your classmates can also help.

Good work. See you!

Hi, Nuria!
You didn't miss anything about today's lesson! I agree with you in your first paragraph, our class is really nice and I think we will work well together.
Oh and one appointment, I think that instead of "interesant" you should writte "interesting". Good post Nuria!! :)

Hello Nuria!!
I'm totally agree with you, you have said all the things we have done in today's lesson such as the new words in the glossary, Renaissance project...
Also you have remembered to me that I have to look for a book because if not I'm not going to study in the future!!
Very Good post Nuria!! See you tomorrow!!

Hi Nuria!!

Your post is very good! I can´t say you anything about the content of the class but I can say that Paqui's classes continue to be as good and interesting as some years ago.

Your English is almost perfect, I have to recognise that my journals weren't as good as yours.

See you Nuria!! Brilliant!

Good post Nuria!!! You didn't miss anything about yesterday's Social Sciences lesson. I hope we will work so well together, because we know all members of the class for years, and some of us are very close friends.

See you tomorrow!! :)

Hello again,

These are my last corrections:

- I would like that the class works well

- a sheet which contains information

- some useful advice(s). Advice is singular in English.

- Paqui has explained us how the final mark is divided into different percentages

-...also has explained how we should work

- she has talked about the organization

- a new project about Renaissance art. The work has to be a brochure

- tr(a)y to reduce the information (...)trying to make it interesting (you wrote this word in French, as Azaahara told you)

- ...but also in (an)other sources... Remember that "another" is singular and "other" is plural

- ... the Internet: in English you have to say the INternet and write Internet in capital letters

- has explained how we will write the journals everyday:a different person ...on the blog

- I' m the student who should write

- It was a good lesson. What we don in class are lessons. Class is the group of people inside the classroom .

Anyway, good work. Review all the corrections and correct the mistakes. See you!
