Period 6 Listening practice Unit 5, ex.4

This plan didn't happen. There was no Internet to teacher PC and the cable to hook up my laptop was buried in a nest of tied down cable, and there was no battery in the projector remote to select the source anyway.

Listen to the navigation warnings in Audio track 31

https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/bbcswebdav/pid-5337579-dt-content-rid-8528102_1/courses/GAENN202MasterG4748T3/Track31.mp3

On October 25, 1999, a chartered Learjet 35 was scheduled to fly from OrlandoFlorida, to DallasTexas. Early in the flight, the aircraft, which was cruising at altitude on autopilot, quickly lost cabin pressure and all on board were incapacitated due to hypoxia — a lack of oxygen. The aircraft failed to make the westward turn toward Dallas over north Florida and continued on its northwestern course, flying over the southern and midwestern United States for almost four hours and 1,500 miles (2,400 km). The plane ran out of fuel over South Dakota and crashed into a field near Aberdeen after an uncontrolled descent.

Hand in the papers Vance gives you by the end of the period

 

If you have spare time you can work on Unit 4 vocabulary in Memrise for the course N202

http://www.memrise.com/course/752333/n202-aviation-english/

 

Each Monday, all weekly scores in Memrise are reset to 0 

Your TARGET is always 5000 points by the end of classes on EACH Sunday (in Week 2, that is by August 14)

 

Sun Aug 7 Per 7 Memrise Independent Learning Scores for Week 31

 

Congratulations to Section hard working Section 4 students.

All but one reached their target of 5000 points

 

All but two have placed 47S4_ in front of their Memrise user names

 

I've also created a group that you can join, http://www.memrise.com/group/8775197/ 

but I think at this point it's easier for everyone if the 2 remaining students just change their profile names

 

 

 

Week 1 (used to be called week 31)

 

Thursday Aug 4

 

Period 3 with Mr. Vance

 

Your teacher will return the work from yesterday. You got a mark for completing as many blanks as you could.

Everyone worked hard and did well.

Now to complete the learning we will go over each blank to clarify words and check for spelling 

 

When done you can work on Memrise. Please refer to the worksheet I gave you earlier this week 

The most important points are:

  1. You must change your profile name to START with 47s4_ 
    (no spaces are allowed in Memrise IDs)
  2. If you don't do this your Memrise score will not be found by your teacher 
    and you will not get a mark for Week 31 Independent Learning score (you'll get zero for week 31) 
    It is the student's responsibility to make this small change 
    (not the teacher's to find your name in the hundreds listed in the Leaderboard) 
  3. You should work in Memrise lesson N201 for the first week ending Sunday August 7
    http://www.memrise.com/course/621195/n201-english-for-aviation/ 
    Teachers are taking the Independent Learning marks for this week from N201 review, not N202 
    We start N202 next week. 
  4. You should get at least 5000 points by Sunday August 7 in order to have 100% score.
    Otherwise your score will be the percentage of 5000 that you achieved by Sunday Aug 7
  5. After Sunday (of any week) there is no way to "make up" your Independent Learning mark for that week.
    The average of all your weekly Independent Learning marks counts 5% of your N202 final grade. 

 

 

Wednesday August 3, 2016

 

Period 6 with Mr. Vance

 

Our work for today is to individually LISTEN to the mp3 that goes with Unit 4, ex 1, p.29

https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/bbcswebdav/pid-5337578-dt-content-rid-8528094_1/courses/GAENN202MasterG4748T3/Track23.mp3  

 

And, also individually, fill in the worksheets for Unit 4 – Ex. 1

 

This is preparation for the listening section or your progress test.

Please try to do your own work as you will not have help on the progress test. 

 

Procedure

  1. Put your name, ID, and section at the top of your paper.
  2. Each student brings up the mp3 on his personal iPad
  3. When I see that you are playing the mp3 I make a Mark of Approval on your paper
    I will not mark papers without the Mark of Approval (those students didn't listen to anything)
  4. Complete the worksheets as you listen.
  5. You can help each other but do not give your paper to anyone to be copied.
  6. If I see your paper on another person's desk, that paper belongs to me.
    I'll take it and put your name on it. 
  7. If your friend won't give me your paper, then I will leave them both with your friend
    and will not collect either (you both get zero).
  8. When you have finished please give your paper to the teacher for marking later

Period 4 with Mr. Vance

 

Mr. Vance will pass around a sheet for you to sign.

It asks if you have a textbook and to write your Memrise ID

(If you don't have a Memrise ID you will have to set one up)

 

There will be a minimum of one independent work score for each student each week.

 

Next week we will start on Unit 4 vocabulary.

This week we want you to review vocabulary from N201, Units 1-3 in Oxford English for Aviation.

You need to work on this during time available in this class. You can have time this period.

 

To find this work, Log in to http://memrise.com and search for N201

If you forgot your ID or password for Memrise you can create another one

Here is the direct link for the course

http://www.memrise.com/course/621195/n201-english-for-aviation/

 

You need to score 5000 points by end of classes Sunday August 7

Your independent score for this week will be the percentage of 5000 completed

At the end of the term you will have 12 weekly marks, which will be your Independent Learning mark

Your Independent Learning mark counts as 5% of your final mark

 

You can start on this now. Your score at the end of each week is your mark.

There is no "make up" for missing your Independent Learning scores

Sunday July 31, 2016

 

Period 4

You were with Ms. Sule

 

Period 7 with Mr. Vance

 

Today we'll be getting to know each other and going through the Student Course Handout and the other information which you can find on BBLearn under 'Course Information.' 

https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/webapps/blackboard/content/listContentEditable.jsp?content_id=_5337501_1&course_id=_76128_1&mode=reset

 

We completed two tasks

 

Task 1 - Go to Bb Learn, and open this course

GAENN202MasterG4748T3: GAEN N202 Group 47&48 Term 3

Instructor: Nery Alvarado Villarreal;  Iain Dodson;  Naciye Duzgun;  John Grimsditch;  Sarah Hrynczak;  Rory O'Rahilly;  Robert Studholme;  Merih Tevs Ozda?;  Alan Thomas;  Glenn Vance Stevens;  Delphino Williams;  

 

Find EMAIL YOUR TEACHER and find

 


 

  1. Open this link in Safari. 
  2. Tap on    on the iPad screen
  3. Select ADD TO HOME SCREEN
  4. Select ADD
  5. Show the Vance's Class icon on your home screen to your teacher 

 

If you can't log in to Bb Mobile you need to let your teacher know so we can fix the problem

 

Task 2

You will be given a hard copy of the N202 Course Information

Please put your name and mil ID no. on the last page, sign it, and return it to your teacher

 


 

We need to complete the following at some point in Week 31

 

Students need to download and install the following apps:

  • Socrative
  • Voice Record Pro
  • As for Memrise, if you have problems with the website, download the app. Otherwise, use the website. 

 

 

Then we will continue with a general review of term 2 vocabulary (Units 1-3) by using any of the online exercises from the section of 'Links to external websites' (look at the content that says Units 1 - 3). 

https://mylearn.hct.ac.ae/webapps/blackboard/content/listContentEditable.jsp?content_id=_5337514_1&course_id=_76128_1&mode=reset 

 

We need to go through this again because this term focuses more on developing speaking and listening skills and you must use all the Aviation vocabulary you have learnt so far to get a passing mark.

 

We will start the Unit 4 N202 materials towards the end of the week (days 3-5)
