4th ESO - A Strange Piece of History

It was 6:10 and I was waiting for the bus...
I borrowed a wonderful activity from Colin Granger (2002). Imagine English - 3. Macmillan-Heinemann. A brave woman called Rosa Parks tells us the terrible experience she suffered one day when she was going back home from work.

We spoke quite a lot telling and retelling the strange piece of history of a woman who was asked to leave her seat to a "gentelman".

Then we did an oral exam.

Next, my students wrote their own strange story. Click on the COMMENTS link to read some of their work.
