Wed, Nov 2 2016 Blog Topic

Please click on the following link and watch the video. It is only about four minutes long. Please watch it more than one time and listen for some of the new vocabulary. It is pretty easy to get the main idea of the talk, but the new vocabulary may be tough. Try to look it up before class.

After you watch the video, you should be able to answer these 5 questions using 'True' or 'False'.

1. Taylor Wilson built a nuclear fusion reactor when he was fourteen years old.

2. Wilson believes that nuclear fusion is not the future of energy, because it does not ‘break even.’

3. The University of Nevada is where Taylor built his fusion reactor.

4. The detector he developed replaced the one used by Homeland Security, and is much cheaper.

5. Wilson believes that kids can make discoveries that will change the world.

See you in class!

Also, please think about these questions.

2) Do you think 3D printing and food go together? Why or why not?
3) Do you think this technology will reduce the number of chef jobs?
4) What other profession is technology entering these days?
5) Do you enjoy gourmet food or do you think it is a waste of money?

Please click on the link and read the article. Then think about the questions. Remember that you do not have to prepare answers to the questions. All I'd like you to do is to understand all of the vocabulary and be ready to discuss the questions in class.

Have a good long weekend!!

1)   Could you live in van? For a short time? For a long time? What do you think the benefits and drawbacks would be?
2)   Do you trust people who live in their vehicles?
3)   Is this a common situation in Korea/Japan?
4)   Should cities allow vans to park for free in certain areas of the city?
5)   Housing prices are getting very high in many parts of Canada. Do you think the government should get involved?
6)   Do you consider yourself and adventurous or cautious person?
7)   What is something adventurous that you dream of doing? Remember, ‘dream’ mean you might never do that thing.

October 5, 2016 Blog Discussion

Hello everyone! This week is going to be a little bit different. I am not going to post an article or video for you to watch, but I would like you to Google 'RFID Student Cards' and choose an article or video to watch. This is how you will prepare for the discussion.

Also, make sure to read the questions below and be ready to answer them. Remember, you do not need to write down answers. Just make sure that you understand the questions and do a little bit of thinking about them.

1)   If you were a parent, would you want the school to be able to track (follow using a computer) your child?

2)   If you were a student, would you want your school to be able to track you?
a.     Would you change or tamper with the tracking device in your student ID?

3)   Do students need a student ID in your home country?

4)   What kind of students do you think this tracking system would benefit (be good for)?


5)   The schools would be spending a lot of money on these new tracking systems? Do you think this is a smart way to spend money? Will it make the kids safer?
