Mid Year Oral Exam – July 12th (Thursday)

As we told you today in class, here you will find the texts to read for your oral exam. Take your time, read and re-read the texts, look up those words that you do not know the meaning of and try to relate to what you read. Think about these questions:

Have you ever experienced fear? What were you afraid of? Are you still afraid of that thing or not any longer?

Can you relate to the characters in the different stories? How?

Check the rubric below to prepare for your exam.

You will not be evaluated on the use of images for this exam.

The Kites are Flying

Setting

Resultado de imagen para map of gaza strip and west bank

The story is set in the West Bank, part of the
occupied Palestinian territories. Since the
foundation of the state of Israel in 1948 there
has been conflict between the Israelis and the
Palestinians over ownership of land. Hundreds
of thousands of Palestinians were displaced in
the fighting of 1948. Since 1967 the Israelis have
occupied the West Bank and have built many
settlements in the occupied territory which are
deemed to be illegal under international law. It is in
the shadow of one of these settlements that Said
and his family live.

Interesting article on the Gaza: the conflict zone

Let´s watch some videos about what is going on between Israel and Palestine today.
