Shark News 12 is an innovative program designed by ESL instructors Kaia Karmyn and Veronica O’Brien. Student struggling to learn English not only have the fun of creating a newscast, they learn five critical skills that improve their proficiency and confidence. The skills are: Fluency – a natural feel for the English language; Linking prior Knowledge – recalling information and conducting research on events and learning activities that take place at school; Sequencing – why certain segments are in the beginning, middle and end; Differentiate language discourse – learning the difference between formal and informal language; Collaboration – and learning how the final project becomes something more precious than just the sum of its parts.
