17th – 24th October 2015 Gravesend, Kent, England
During the course we will not only visit her memorial in Saint George’s church, Gravesend but we will have the opportunity to learn more about Pocahontas
- through a storyteller and a picture book aiming at young learners (language level A1/A2)
- through an historian who will tell about the background of her time and the many wrong facts that have been published(language level A2/B1+)
- by visiting an exhibition about the culture of the Virginia Indians in London
- by trying out native Indian recipes by doing some practical cooking
At the end we will sit down and design a Storyline in which the learners will be motivated to take over the identity of an Indian or an Englishman at Pocahontas’ time, This will lead to asking questions, listening to or reading informational texts, inventing dialogues, writing letters etc. …well, all the important things to develop the target language.
