Making a class blog with Pearltrees!

Overview

All courses for the 3rd year of Greek (4 ASO, age of 15-16) consist of a cultural item followed by a number of Greek texts that illustrate and deepen the theme. The student will create a presentation about one of the festivals that are discussed in the theme ‘Leisure and religious festivals’: the Symposium, the Panathenaia, the Mysteries of Eleusis, the Anthesteria. For the substantive aspect they will mainly use the material of the course (progress of the feast, attributes,...), the visual material and associated information that was found on the internet will be saved on their own class page on www.pearltrees.com, so students can use this material in the years following. It is the intention to thematically group interesting visual material and good websites and each year make presentations on a different theme.

Description

1 Preparation

  1. During the preparatory lesson the students will be introduced to Prezi (for creating presentations), Pearltrees (for gathering bookmarks, images,….) and Pinterest (images);
  2. In the lesson a class page will be created on www.pearltrees.com. Think of a fitting name, together with the students, ideally one that includes the name of the school.
