Thomas Becket’s story in Anento (Zaragoza)

If you are teaching the MECD-British Council integrated curriculum, you know how interesting can be using elements to make a strong British-Spanish connection for your students. Some are well known, like the story of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon, but some are not. The altarpiece of the small village of Anento in Zaragoza province, Aragon, has one of these less known connections. It is a gothic masterpiece painted by Blasco de Grañén in the 15th century which shows three stories about our Lady of Mercy, Saint Blaise and Saint Thomas Becket. Yes, Thomas Becket, the saint of Canterbury appears here and this is because his murder was a prefiguration of the problems the archbishops of Zaragoza faced at the beginning of the 15th century, a time of political instability in the Crown of Aragon. If you want to know more about this beautiful altarpiece, you can read this book, in Spanish, M.C. Lacarra, Retablo de San Blas, de la Virgen de la Misericordia y de Santo Tomás Becket de la iglesia parroquial de Anento (Zaragoza).

Talks for teachers from some conferences.

A wonderful thing about this global online world we are living in is that we can get access to some teacher training events which were recorded and uploaded to some websites. If you are interested in watching a couple of talks from two different conferences you can follow these links.

The first one is from the ELT British Conference held in Madrid on 1st October 2016 and is related to CLIL. Rebecca Place presents the idea of bringing the knowledge from outside the school into the lessons.

The second one is from the EdmodoCon held in San Mateo, California, USA, on 2th and 3rd August 2016. Stephanie Ward underlines the importance of sharing what happened in the class to the rest of the world.

Famous migrants

This is an activity that was already uploaded to this website, but it was not available anymore due to some problems the website experienced. So, we have it here again. It is a non typical approach to migration that can be used for Geography or English lessons.

Estancia profesional en el Reino Unido

Entre el 4 y el 17 de octubre de 2015, la profesora Elvira García Arnal, del IES Pedro de Luna de Zaragoza, ha realizado una estancia profesional de dos semanas en la Fairfield High School, de Peterchurch, Hereford, Reino Unido, dentro del programa de estancias profesionales del MECD.


La estancia ha sido una experiencia grata que ha permitido a los alumnos de español de Fairfield un contacto más directo con la lengua que estudian y a la profesora española observar la metodología con la que trabajan los profesores de Geografía y de Historia en un centro inglés, aspecto primordial dentro de la enseñanza bilingüe de currículo integrado (MEC-British Council). Agradecemos de nuevo la colaboración y amabilidad de la comunidad educativa de la Fairfield High School y especialmente del profesorado de MFL y Humanities para que esta estancia haya sido posible.

A continuación  hay varios enlaces a materiales elaborados tras esta estancia profesional:
