One day teacher of English A said to teacher of English B, “Each class-period is different. Each and every one of them should be one step forward for your students. Each class is worth making good use of the time, worth thinking of one goal. Or two for example, not many anyway. When you plan the next class, I assume you think of what suits your students best, according to the pace of their learning. Many teachers plan their classes this way.
A few months ago a teacher told me that he had changed his mind: he would make photocopies of some texts according to his students’ needs and pace of learning. It was a short course of English. Another colleague told me he planned each class on a sheet of paper, like the guidelines of the specific class. This teacher used recycled paper, writing his notes on the blank side of a photocopy.” / Photo from: ventanas. carpinteria-aluminio es
Below is a comment on post # 671, by Eugenio Olivares Merino. Thank you, Eugenio, for the so interesting information you give.
There I go, dear friend! This passage is important for two reasons: 1. It describes a typical Viking funeral: the corpse of the noble warrior is placed in a boat, loaded with weapons, treasures, dead animals, and sometimes a dead girl (a slave). 2. The passage contains an anachronism: by the time in which the action is supposed to take place (VIth century), Northern ships had no mast ("maeste"). Obviously, in the mental scenario of the author, ships needed a mast! Nice entry, Fernando.
