How do I access video numbers #3 - 7 in the e-jamaica series? Excellent production.
Hi, the e-learning Jamaica videos are organized by topics. So the videos will be available in the topics areas to which they relate e.g. the summary writing video will be under the tutorials for CXC English A summary writing. I hope this helps.
Yeah, it refers to the activity in the second link above
Hi, what is the "house building" activity? Is that anything like the second link above or is it different?
I have difficulty in getting some of my students to organise their ideas in a coherent manner when it comes to essay writing, especially persuasive writing. I find the "house building" activity to be quite simple yet informative/helpful to students of any level who have difficulty structuring an essay.
