Devise a three-stage sequence activities to improve listening skills at advance level. Eu l-as face cu pre -listening.while-listening,after-listening,dar nu prea stiu la prelistening ce sa scriu..(oare trebuie sa inventam noi un text pentru ,,listening,,?) In pre-listening poti face prediction, nu? In pre-listening poti face prediction, nu? Why do pre-listening tasks? In real life it is unusual for people to listen to something without having some idea of what they are going to hear. When listening to a radio phone-in show, they will probably know which topic is being discussed. When listening to an interview with a famous person, they probably know something about that person already. A waiter knows the menu from which the diner is choosing their food. In our first language we rarely have trouble understanding listening. But, in a second language, it is one of the harder skills to develop - dealing at speed with unfamiliar sounds, words and structures. This is even more difficult if we do not know the topic under discussion, or who is speaking to whom. So, simply asking the students to listen to something and answer some questions is a little unfair, and makes developing listening skills much harder.
Many students are fearful of listening, and can be disheartened when they listen to something but feel they understand very little. It is also harder to concentrate on listening if you have little interest in a topic or situation. Pre-listening tasks aim to deal with all of these issues: to generate interest, build confidence and to facilitate comprehension. Prediction & raising the students' interest in the topic pentru acest subiect eu ma inspir din unul din manualele avute la dispozitie: Ex Going for gold-presupun ca e destul de avansat. Si de aici ma uit la partile de listening cu activitatile propuse, in general sunt activitati in 4-5 pasi si se face acelasi listening de 2,3 ori. exemplu: A. Look at the photos and discuss these questions with a partner: 1 Where is Antarctica? 2.How would you describe Antarctica? 3.What animals do you associate with Antarctica? 4. Do you know how changes in Antarctica affect the world's climate? B. You will hear four people talking about different aspects of Antarctica. First look at the list of subjects(a-d) and the words in the box below. For each subject, which two words do you expect to hear? a b c d Box with 8 words connected to the four subjects C.Listen and match each speaker with the correct subject in the list a-d.

Explain the difference between formative and summative assessment. Refer to: - objectives - moments during learning
- instruments - relevance for learning and teaching Do not write more than 20 lines. (10 points) Formative assessments are those that you do when the marks ultimately don't count toward a student's final grade. They can be as simple as asking a student to answer a homework question aloud in class, and then giving him/her feedback. They can be quizzes, self-assessments, peer assessments, first drafts of major projects/essays, mock exams, just about anything that will give you an idea of how a student is doing. They are sometimes considered to be "assessment FOR learning" - the point of the exercise is not to generate a mark, but that the student learns by doing the task, and from your comments. Summative assessments are the things that will count for marks. They should come after students have had a few opportunities to check their learning and improve their skills with formative work. They are the traditional assignments and tests. They are "assessment OF learning" - the point is to measure in a final way what the student learned, and to put a grade on it.
