During this first term, students from 1º Bachillerato have read an adaptation of “Stories of Mystery and Suspense” by Edgar Allan Poe and they have been working on a project about this North American writer and about the different emotions conveyed in his stories, among other things. They participated in Literature Talks and listened to Joy Division, The Cure and Nirvana and tried to establish a connection between their music and Poe’s Literature.

For the final task, students were asked to choose their favourite story and prepare a presentation in which they had to include information about the plot, characters, themes, symbols and emotions. The most popular stories were, undoubtedly, “Ligeia”, “The Masque of the Red Death” and “The Pit and The Pendulum”.
Here are some of the results. Enjoy!!

Students from 2º ESO E have been working on a project about the USA for the last two weeks.
They were asked to read “All About the USA” by Editorial Burlington and as a way to evaluate them they had to prepare a small presentation about one of the aspects dealt with in the novel for the rest of the class. They were asked to use smore, prezi or popplet. These are the students doing their oral presentations:

La Semana Cultural del IES Vicente Medina nace hace ya 5 años como un proyecto educativo en el que los protagonistas son TODOS los alumnos del centro y cuya finalidad es crear un espacio que permita el intercambio y la divulgación de conocimientos más allá de las puertas de un aula.
Este curso se ha celebrado del 16 al 20 de abril y el tema elegido ha sido “La Música”.
Los alumnos de ESO y Bachillerato han trabajado proyectos en los que el eje principal ha sido la música. Estos proyectos se han trabajado durante todo el curso y en esta Semana Cultural se han expuesto a todo el centro y a las familias por medio de exposiciones de murales, conciertos, pequeñas obras de teatro, entre otras.
Os dejamos algunas muestras de los trabajos realizados por los distintos departamentos con sus alumnos:

All good things come to those who wait and on March the 10th the Spanish group landed in Gothenburg (Sweden) ready to enjoy an unforgettable week.
Among the activities planned, we visited Uddevalla, Gothenburg or Oslo. The students also took part in other activities organised by their families and attended some lessons with their Swedish mates.
We would like to thank all the teachers and families involved for their effort and commitment.
All in all, the exchange has AGAIN been a very enriching experience for all the people who took part in it, especially the students.
For the 2nd term students from 2º Bach were asked to work on a mini project called “Don’t stop the beat”. Click on the photo to check the different steps students had to follow:
Instructions for the project
They could either choose to talk about music in TV series and films or music from New York. Most of them chose to talk about music in TV series and films. Only two groups chose to talk about music from New York. All of the groups did an outstanding job. They learned about music bands like Velvet Underground, The Who, The Ramones, The Clash, Joy Division, Radiohead, Vampire Weekend, among others. Some of the students even dared to get dressed up and do some performances as you can see in some of the videos uploaded in this post. We all had a really good time.

I can’t think of a better way to finish with their excellent work than this:
As part of the project “Amazing Britain 1º ESO” that students have been working on this term, they were asked to investigate about typical food and different meals in a country where English is spoken as a first language. Most of them chose either Britain or USA, but the most adventurous ones decided to prepare their work about Australia or Scotland.
They had to create a digital leaflet using smore with the different meals in the country they chose and the typical food eaten in each of these meals. Once they had done this, they presented their work orally to the rest of their classmates.
Bearing in mind most of them had never done an oral English presentation before and were really nervous, they all did an excellent job. Some of them even wanted to be recorded as you can see in the following videos:
