English first additional language

Grade 6

Module 6

To use additional language to communicate information

Activity 1:

To use additional language to communicate information

[lo 2.3.5]

In this exercise you will work on your own to prepare a topic to be presented orally to the class. This talk will be slightly longer, as you will aim to talk for two minutes each. Speaking in front of other people is an important skill that we need to practise. Not everybody finds this easy, so be sure to prepare well if you feel nervous when addressing others. The rubric below will guide you.

Once you have chosen your topic, make use of the guidelines below to prepare your oral.

  1. Find a bicycle, get permission to borrow it if necessary and then explain and demonstrate how to fix a puncture.
  2. Describe the day you got your first bicycle and learnt to ride it. (You may also use your imagination and make up a story.)
  3. Discuss a well known cycling tour/race such as the Argus or Tour de France , how cyclists should prepare themselves and mention a few well known names in cycling circles.
  4. The history of bicycles.

Peer and Educator Assessment Chart:

Criteria 1 2 3 4
Enunciation Poor Developing, not always clear Good Excellent
Eye-contact None evident Very little evident Maintained through most of the talk Maintained throughout the talk
Pace Poor, falters often, making it difficult to follow Not consistent, frequent faltering Good flow, very little faltering Excellent flow, no faltering
Sincerity, Conviction, Enthusiasm No evidence Very little evidence during the talk Evident during most of the talk Extremely evident throughout the talk
Use of Visual aids and preparation None Very little but starting to understand the importance Good Excellent
Use of notes Lack of notes lead to confusion Correct use still developing – very dependent on notes Good Excellent, complimented talk or excellent talk without notes


LO 2
SPEAKING The learner will be able to communicate effectively in spoken language in a wide range of situations.
We know this when the learner:
2.3 uses additional language to communicate information:
2.3.5 talks about an issue with preparation;
2.4 uses additional language creatively:
2.4.2 performs poems, songs and simple plays.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
