p. 54: ex. 7:

PRO
+ young people can make a difference because they are the adults of tomorrow and if they care about such problems now, they would find solutions in the future.
+ everyone might improve the world a little bit, so young people would do so as well / would contribute to this improvement as well.
+ If you share your knowledge of how to do things in a better way, young people adopt these strategies and they come naturally.

CON

– young people aren’t interested in the world’s problems.
– young people just want to have fun.
– Power is necessary to change the world.
– they’re simply too young – they’re lacking experience.
– nobody respects their opinion.

how else can you say…?

Hi guys,

Here are some alternatives to say something simple – it enhances your writing and varying the words ups your style!

Please be aware that normally you wouldn’t put them with a mayor first letter – unless you start a phrase with it.

Here’s anoterh list with manifold ideas for you:

I’m working on an excel sheet for you right now; I’m planning on finishing it within the next days. You’ll find it in our dropbox. Please have a close look and learn these words!

Linkempfehlungen – tolle, kurze Übungen und blogs!

Hi everybody,

Please take some time and look at these helpful links I found:

http://www.jochenenglish.de/misc/common_mistakes_1.htm

Please open above mentioned link. Take some time to do the exercises right. Read the sentence, try to find an answer / the translation and then check by moving the mouse over the sentence – the solution becomes visible!

The second link is a little different: http://www.jochenenglish.de/misc/common_mistakes_2.htm

You will find sentences in English, but with at least one mistake in them. Try to find the mistake(s) and think of the proper way to say that – then check by moving the mouse over the sentence.

I will not bring these elements to class, but they are an excellent exercise for you and will help you to improve your English!

I highly recommend this blog:

http://www.der-englisch-blog.de/

Please check it and read an article from time to time! This could be one of your summer projects.

You should also check these tips: http://www.jochenenglish.de/?p=2257

Übrigens, wer sich umfassend für das Abitur vorbereiten möchte, kann gerne auf dieser Seite vorbeischauen:

http://englischlehrer.de/school/literaturliste-sek-II/index.php

Bitte keine Panik bekommen!!

Keine Schule behandelt alle Themen und alle Bücher sowie Videos, das schafft man einfach nicht. Jede Lehrkraft muss eine Auswahl treffen, auf oben genannter Homepage handelt es sich um Kursvorschläge, jedoch sind die Informationen zu den einzelnen Themen sehr gut und wirklich hilfreich, um zumindest oberflächlich das Thema zu streifen – wenn man je Thema etwa 5 – 10 Stunden aufwendet, kann man auch schon viel erfahren! Es bleibt euch überlassen, ob ihr reinschaut und vor allem auf jeden einzelnen Link klickt und die Informationen dahinter lest und aufnehmt oder nicht. Ihr werdet Parallelen zum Pflichtwortschatz finden.

homework

Hi guys,
Please read p. 45 B: “Sonnet 130” and check the vocabulary as well as the red hints. (This will take some time, please invest it!! It’s very important to revise these points because they are relevant for the final exams!)
Glossary: Stylistic devices (pp. 289ff)
Reading Poetry p. 263
glossary: Sonnet, Rhyme, Metre pp. 278-279
