Our future jobs


Do you know Cameron Diaz? She is a famous actress and 2015 she was interviewed by the HUMAN in Canada.  She spoke about what her acting profession means to her: 




What do you think?
Cameron says that you have to be motivated by something. What motivates you?
What would you like to work with when you grow up? What do you need to do to reach your goals?


The jobs we'll lose to machines -- and the ones we won't |
A Ted Talk by Anthony Goldbloom:




What kind of jobs do you think we will work with in the future?
Work in pairs and use your imagination.
Create jobs that you think we will work with 2057.

I want you to write a description of the future jobs, but I also want you to be able to talk about it. Motivate why you think this would be your future job and explain why. Create pictures and add if you want to.
You need to finish this task on Thursday. The last 30 minutes of the lesson we will talk about your future jobs.

When we meet each other again after your work experience,  you will learn how to write a cover letter. You are going to apply for one of the future jobs we created in class.  You will need to write a formal cover letter, but also create something that draws attention to you. Why should just YOU be employed?
Create a Vlog where you talk about yourself and show the employer why you are the best person to hire!
Good Luck!

Argumentative writing - English year 7

 We will now continue working on how to write an argumentative text.

April 20: 

Think of something that you don't like and would like to change. 
You need to find arguments for and against. You can talk to someone at home or google !  Here you can find an example of an argumentative text that a pupil year 7 has written: Refugees welcome?

- Does the headline draw your attention?
- Do you understand why the author has written this text? 
- Which is the author's point of view? 
- What arguments for and against his/her point of view are you able to find?
- Can you find any linking words ? Where and how has the author used them? 
- Can you find any words that express the author's feelings about the subject?


On Monday, April 24, you are going to write your own text. I don't want you to write at home, but please think of a subject that you would like to write about. You need to write at least one A4 page size 12. I want you to follow the structure of an argumentative text - take a look at the picture below. I also want you to include linking words and show me that you know how to use them.

Essay topics:

Mobiles phones should be banned in schools for both students and teachers
All students should wear uniforms in school. 
School must start two hours later, because students are very tired 
Separating boys and girls help them perform better in school 
Parents must limit how much time their children spend on tech devices - two hours per day is enough
Mobile phones should be banned during the whole school day 
Grades are not necessary - children study anyway
Homework should be forbidden 
Schools should offer cash bonuses for good test scores

If you would like to write about something that you can't find on the list - feel free to do so! 


Use the picture to help you, but don't answer the questions one by one.

Our Future Jobs

Dream job or job for a living? 


This task is inspired by Read English. You can find more via their Youtube channel. 

We will watch the video above and while you are listening I want you to fill out the form below:
The different people in the video work with things like:

Match the name with the correct job and also note if it is his/her dream job or not? 




1. Game!
You work in groups of four. On one desk you put the cards you get upside down.
One student picks a card and tries to explain what you do when you work with the job you see on your card. You are not allowed to say the occupation, instead you need to describe what the person is doing. The other members of the group try to guess which occupation it is. The student that first knows the correct answer will the get the card. When there are no more cards on the desk, you count the cards. The student with most cards has won the game.

2. Discussion!
Continue working in your groups.
Talk about the questions below:
At what age do people usually begin to work in your country? At what age do they retire?
-Do you think it is more important to make a lot of money or to enjoy your job?
-What are some prestigious occupations in your opinion?
-What makes people work? (Why do we work?)
- What is your dream job and why?

Four Corners Debate !

Today are we going to practice speaking!
We will start with something called "Four corners".
In the classroom you can see posters with:
1. Strongly agree
2. Agree
3. Strongly disagree
4 Disagree

I will show you statements like,:

All students should wear uniforms in school. 
School must start two hours later, because students are very tired 
Separating boys and girls help them perform better in school 
Parents must limit how much time their children spend on tech devices - two hours per day is enough
Mobile phones should be banned during the whole school day 
Grades are not necessary - children study anyway

In front of you, you have a piece of paper. If you strongly agree, you write number 1 on your piece of paper, if you agree, but are not sure write number 2, strongly disagree number 3 and if you disagree but are not sure write number 4.

Then take look at the classroom - where can you find your number? When I tell you to move around- you go to the part of the classroom where your number is.

Stand still in front of the number. Now you are going to motivate why you chose the number you did.  Motivate your opinion.

I will lead the discussion and I will make sure that you speak one at a time.

To be able to discuss we need to learn words.

Take a look at the words below:





Good Luck!
