COMMUNICATIVE

Important note

It is recommended that teachers choose the formative tasks and number of tasks per unit or chapter judiciously so as to cover a variety of skills and learning objectives.

It is not necessary that all the tasks suggested for each chapter/unit be conducted in class and nor is it necessary for all tasks/activities to be assessed or marked. However, students should be aware of the activities/tasks which will be considered for assessment.

Activities should be built into the teaching-learning process and be a seamless part of the classroom process.

The Formative Assessments should be based on both the Literature Reader and Language skills (MCB/ Workbook).

The Formative tasks should take into account the four skills-Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.

The marks for each task may be decided by the teachers, however, the weightage for each Formative Assessment should be calculated for 10%.

The Summative 1 will cover all the Units taught in the First Term and the Summative 2 will cover all the Units taught in the Second Term.

LISTENING PASSAGE 1

You will listen to a passage on Mob Fury. As you listen, complete the worksheet by choosing the correct options.

Mob Fury

The crowd surged forward through the narrow streets of Paris. There was a clatter of shutters being closed hastily by trembling hands - the citizens of Paris knew that once the fury of thepeople was excited there was no telling what they might do. They came to an old house which had a workshop on the ground floor. A head popped out of the door to see what it was all about. "Get him! Get Thimonier! Smash his devilish machines!" yelled the crowd. They found the workshop without its owner. M.Thimonier had escaped by the back door. Now the fury of the demonstrators turned against the machines that were standing in the shop, ready to be delivered to buyers. They were systematically broken up and destroyed- dozens of them. Only when the last wheel and the spindle had been trampled under the foot did the infuriated crowd recover their senses. 

"That is the end of M'sieur Thimonier and his sewing machines", they said to one another and went home satisfied. Perhaps now they would find work, for they were all unemployed tailors and seamstresses who believed that their livelihood was threatened by that new invention.

1. how a well-meant invention can be misunderstood

2. the newly invented sewing machine
