Cricket Cruncher’ Causes Chaos

Mr Ivan Idea’s newest invention to eliminate crickets has caused much dissention amongst insect and animal lovers.

His ‘cricket cruncher’ shoes, designed to squash (in his words) “those little black monsters”, have cynics smiling and insect and animal lovers irate. “The man is cruel!,” is the general feeling of the public.

Assessment

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:

2.1 communicates experiences, ideas and information in different and fairly challenging contexts for different audiences and purposes:

2.1.1 uses language thoughtfully for interpersonal communication (e.g. praising someone’s efforts, disagreeing with someone);

2.1.2 uses language for creative and imaginative self-expression (e.g. expresses feelings and thoughts, dramatises);

2.1.3 shares ideas and offers opinions on less familiar topics and events, using speculation and hypothesis;

2.2 uses interaction strategies to communicate effectively in group situations:

2.3 uses appropriate body language and presentation skills:
