Macro-teaching. Irish Literature and films. The Book I saw.

IRISH LITERATURE. Macro-teaching.

Topic: the book I saw
The aim of this macro-teaching is to get students familiar with some films based on books   that deal with some important events that happened in the past in Ireland and that somehow are similiar to events which also happened in our country.
We are going to deal with three topics here. At  this point students have to rely on their previous knowledge. Group work.
TOPICS ARE: THE HISTORY OF IRELAND’S MAGDALENE LAUNDRIES, IRISH DANCING AND IRISH IMMIGRATION. They can work in groups and try to guess to which topic all the words in File 1 belong to . They can discuss it in groups.

File 1.The Book I saw. File 1. Topics about Ireland.

STEP 2. Information on these three topics is placed all over the classroom. Students walk around the class to make sure their choices were right.

File 2. The book I saw. File 2. Facts about Ireland.
