Thursday, 17th June

1. First up today (and a bit earlier than usual) because it’s this evening at 20:00 UK time, the free British Museum ‘curators’ tour’ of their new exhibition, Thomas Becket: murder and the making of a saint https://youtu.be/pAN9MqPsGcA

2. Next, just in case you’ve not yet had chance to explore the Climate Action for Language Education lessons, here’s one for 9-11 year-olds, considering the importance of safeguarding all kinds of animals: https://www.teachingenglish.org.uk/article/a-new-logo-world-wildlife-fund

PDFs of all the lesson downloads below, including both online and f2f lesson plans.

3. Here’s the raw material for a lesson on climate with your older students that you’ll have to cook yourself: https://theconversation.com/how-world-leaders-high-carbon-travel-choices-could-delay-climate-action-162784

4. And, not quite finally as it’s turned out, here’s the winner of the International Booker Prize, French-Senegalese author David Diop, & his translator Anna Moschovakis in conversation with Philippe Sands in an Edinburgh International Book Festival event which includes a dramatized reading by Ken Nwosu from the Royal Shakespeare Company https://www.edbookfest.co.uk/media-gallery/item/david-diop-anna-moschovakis

5. Finally, definitely, here’s some audio clips of Ken Nwosu reading voiceovers for a range of adverts that I chanced upon while following my nose for the previous item on David Diop https://fullervoices.co.uk/artist/ken-nwosu-2/ There’s a listening skills lesson in there somewhere, isn’t there?
