Literature Practice - Form 4

I have compiled two sets of questions based on the poems He Had Such Quiet eyes and In the Midst of Hardship. It can help our students to understand the poems much better. It is easier for the students to understand the poems when there is drilling our different types of questions rather than explaining over and over again the content of the poem. Please click here to download the questions and here to download the answers ... Unfortunately I am still working on the Form 5 poems...once I have tested them with my students I will definitely share them here.....

please drop by to say thank you...If you find this to be helpful.......

MICELT and MELTA Conference Materials


 Champion
Tan Sri wira Abdul Rahman Arshad Debate Championship National Level,
Sibu Sarawak. ( 18 - 22 September 2014) 
Hi, it has been a long time that I did not post anything here....I have been very busy since after  the Raya Break. What have I been doing you may ask, too many things actually  that I can't really post here yet....but I can tell you that right after the Raya break I attended two conferences and right after that I was busy with the marking of PT3 and SPM trial papers.  I was also training my dearest students for the Tan Sri Wira Abdul Rahman Arshad Cup -  mind you it was a national level debate competition. The good news is we won!!! YES!!! we won the nationals for the first time...It was our determination, hardwork as well as God's blessings. By the way as  promised I would like to share the materials I used for my presentations at MELTA and MICELT conferences last month. Please feel free to download them. Please click here to download the powerpoint. Next am planning to present in an International Conference in Hong Kong somewhere in 2015 ..Hopefully I will reach there.....

Here are the ways to use MTVs in your lessons : 

a) First you need to get the right video so that your students can understand the content. Please make sure the video does not contain any sexual explicit materials and it goes along with your scheme of work and syllabus. 

b) Next you need to plan how you are going to go about your lesson using the video. If you are just showing them the video and asking them to write an essay based on the video right, its just not going to work. You need to plan some activities related to the video to ensure your students understand the content. 

c) Prepare task sheets. your task sheets can be simple questions related to the video. You can ask your students to rearrange the sequence of the video which is in written form.  You can also create information transfer kind of activities based on the video you want to show them, while watching the video you can ask them to complete the chart by transferring information from the video.

d) If you are to choose a music video, make sure  you choose a video which has a story.   When the MTV has a storyline it will be easier for you to teach your students to write a composition based on the video. 

here is an example of an MTV :

What have I been doing?

It has been quite sometime I did not post anything on this blog and I did not know that I have some readers  who are quietly following me. They mailed me asking what had happened. Well, these people have really made my day...well here is the answer..............This year has been quite a tough year for me, personally and professionally. My job at school has become very demanding and I am in the midst of doing my dissertation. On top of that I have been attending state level courses and conducting district level courses. Right now I have my plate overloaded and hopefully I can cope with it. Well, the one thing that puts a smile on my face is definitely the APC which I received recently for the second time. I received my first APC in 2007 and after a short break it came on my way again. Besides, I have received my CPT results recently and it was to my satisfaction (C1).I am definitely thankful for all the blessings. This week I will be presenting at MELTA Conference in Kuching.....hope everything goes well...I will share it here once am back from Kuching. I have also received a good news two days ago... I am not going to share about it yet....Will share it once everything is confirmed....
