O PROJECTO COOL ZONE

0. Introdução
A concepção do projecto Cool Zone surge da necessidade de dar resposta à grande heterogeneidade de turmas
com que os professores se deparam diariamente, dando ainda seguimento ao projecto Cool Zone iniciado no 7.o ano.
Pretende auxiliar o professor na gestão flexível do Programa e na sua tarefa diária de organizar o processo ensino/apren-
dizagem, adequando-o às características específicas dos seus alunos: conhecimentos, capacidades, ritmos, estilos de
aprendizagem, interesses e motivações.
À semelhança do Manual do 7.o ano, existe neste projecto uma articulação entre o Programa e a organização dos
processos de ensino/aprendizagem, de modo a desenvolver as competências específicas que conduzam à construção
de uma competência global em Língua Estrangeira, de acordo com as orientações do Quadro Europeu Comum de
Referência para as Línguas.
Numa abordagem que visa o desenvolvimento do aluno, não só a nível cognitivo, mas também nos domínios
afectivo, social e moral, as metodologias a adoptar deverão ser centradas no discente. Deste modo, são delineados
percursos de aprendizagem diversos, após a selecção dos conteúdos a mobilizar no desenvolvimento das competên-
cias específicas e das situações a proporcionar aos alunos.
Nesta linha, o professor, enquanto orientador e facilitador da aprendizagem, deve assegurar que as diferentes
necessidades e interesses dos alunos são tidos em consideração, estruturando formas diversificadas de organização
da aprendizagem.
É nesta vertente que este projecto é inovador, pois apresenta propostas de trabalho delineadas para atender à
diversidade apresentada pelos alunos, possibilitando aprendizagens diversificadas e diferenciadas. O trabalho do
professor fica, assim, bastante simplificado.
Tal como o Programa preconiza, os conteúdos programáticos estão estruturados em planos de trabalho
(task-based learning), isto é, a partir de um certo objectivo a atingir, é traçado um percurso através do qual o aluno
vai adquirindo as ferramentas necessárias para realizar a actividade final (objectivo a atingir).

”… any structured language learning endeavour, which has a particular objective, appropriate
content, a specified working procedure, and a range of outcomes for those who undertake the task.
‘Task’ is therefore assumed to refer to a range of workplans which have the overall purpose of
facilitating language learning – from the simple and brief exercise type to more complex and lengthy
activities such as group problem-solving or simulations and decision making.”

(Breen, in David Nunan, Designing Tasks for the Communicative Classroom, New York, CUP, 1989)

2 ©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO


Os objectivos que se pretende atingir devem ser claros, motivando os
alunos para o sentido de responsabilidade e para a construção de apren-
dizagens significativas.
A página de abertura de cada Task é bastante importante, porque per-
mite levar à compreensão, por parte dos alunos, da utilidade dos conteúdos,
das actividades a realizar, das estratégias e dos recursos. Aqui são também
referidos os conteúdos do Workbook e são devidamente assinalados os
textos gravados nos CDs do aluno/professor.

O projecto Cool Zone põe à disposição do professor o Manual, que


inclui um apêndice desdobrável, Help Zone, o Workbook, a Leitura Extensiva,
com as respectivas fichas de exploração, um conjunto de treze separadores
com as sugestões metodológicas e soluções do Manual, um CD áudio, um
DVD, um conjunto de dez transparências, um conjunto de apresentações em
PowerPoint e este Caderno de Apoio ao Professor, que inclui um conjunto de
materiais fotocopiáveis com um conjunto de fichas de recuperação, testes, testes de Listening e um conjunto de
fichas de exploração do DVD).

O projecto Cool Zone põe à disposição do aluno o Manual, com o apêndice desdobrável, (Help Zone), o
Workbook, um CD Áudio e a Leitura Extensiva, com as respectivas fichas de exploração, sendo estes dois últimos de
oferta.

1. Manual
O Manual está estruturado em seis Zones e cada Zone em Tasks com diversas actividades, textos actualizados e
exercícios contextualizados, que muitas vezes associam à vertente didáctica uma vertente lúdica, embora sempre
direccionada para aprendizagem ou consolidação dos assuntos tratados.
Cada Task põe em evidência uma skill, sem, no entanto, descurar as outras. Foi, ainda, feita uma gestão equili-
brada das skills ao longo do Manual.

1.1. Diferenciação

Pelas razões já enunciadas na introdução, julgamos essencial possibilitar aos alunos aprendizagens diferen-
ciadas através de actividades/exercícios variados e de grau de complexidade diferente. Desta forma, o professor é
também apoiado na implementação desta estratégia.
Ao longo das Tasks utilizámos símbolos para distinguir o grau de complexidade das actividades:

• menor grau de dificuldade

• maior grau de dificuldade

©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO 3


Consideramos que este Manual oferece um vasto leque de possibilidades de trabalho, pelo que deverá ser con-
siderado como um “menu”, de onde o professor poderá escolher as actividades que estão mais de acordo com os
seus alunos. No entanto, outras estratégias são possíveis: os alunos poderão realizar os exercícios mais fáceis na
aula, como primeira etapa, e os mais difíceis, por exemplo, como trabalho de casa ou consolidação dos conteúdos.

Língua • Tipologia de exercícios diversa.


Inglesa • Abordagens diferenciadas dos conteúdos gramaticais, exercícios de graus de dificuldade diferentes.

• Um mesmo texto proporciona actividades diferenciadas.


• Um mesmo texto proporciona as mesmas actividades, mas possibilita aos alunos escolher
quais os exercícios que querem realizar.
• Dois textos sobre o mesmo tema, mas apresentando um grau de dificuldade crescente (quer
Textos
a nível do vocabulário, quer a nível da Língua Inglesa).
• Dois textos abordando aspectos diferentes de um mesmo tema, semelhantes em
termos de dificuldade, proporcionando a diferenciação, ao permitir que seja o aluno a
escolher o texto que lhe convém.

• Abordagem do vocabulário de um texto/tópico feita através de exercícios variados e de graus de


Vocabulário
dificuldade diferentes.

• Guiada → Exemplificação da estrutura do texto a produzir.


Produção → Orientação da sequência das ideias.
escrita • Menos guiada → Sugestões de produção de texto.
• Writing Zone (ver pág. 5)

A diferenciação que o Manual permite não diz apenas respeito aos conhecimentos e capacidades dos alunos.
Tivemos, também, em consideração os diferentes estilos de aprendizagem, pelo que se podem encontrar actividades
a níveis visual, auditivo, cinestésico e do ler e escrever. Como exemplos, podemos citar: puzzles, quadros exemplifica-
tivos, quadros de sistematização, ilustrações de suporte a situações abordadas, textos de leitura de natureza variada
(diálogos, poemas, canções, pequenos textos narrativos e descritivos, ...), construção de pequenos diálogos, etc.

• Visual: puzzles, descrição de imagens e/ou fotografias, ordenar imagens, quadros exemplificativos.
• Ler/Escrever: textos de leitura de natureza variada, produção escrita guiada, menos guiada
Estilos
e livre, anedotas, quadros de sistematização.
de aprendizagem
• Auditivo: textos de natureza variada, entrevistas, pequenos diálogos, poemas.
• Cinestésico: role plays, contrução de pequenos diálogos, debates.

Por vezes, a diferenciação situa-se ao nível da escolha que o aluno pode fazer: numa determina actividade pode
tomar decisões sobre o percurso a seguir, os exercícios a realizar, as perguntas a que quer responder, as propostas
que mais estejam de acordo com as suas capacidades/conhecimentos.

Sempre que possível tivemos em conta a exequibilidade da correcção de alguns exercícios. Em alguns casos, ao
corrigir um dos exercícios (maior ou menor grau de complexidade), o professor dá resposta ao outro exercício de
forma paralela ou, até, acrescentando informação. Esta estratégia promove a interacção aluno/aluno aumentando a
sua auto-confiança.

1.2. Articulação das competências com o projecto pedagógico Cool Zone

O projecto pedagógico Cool Zone apresenta estratégias de concretização e desenvolvimento das competências
essenciais em Língua Estrangeira ao:
• Adoptar uma metodologia task-based.
• Traçar percursos de aprendizagem diferenciados.
• Permitir uma reflexão constante sobre as regras da Língua Inglesa.
• Criar Zones dedicadas a competências de comunicação oral e escrita.
• Conceber trabalhos de projecto e ainda de pares e/ou de grupos, promovendo o desenvolvimento de atitudes
de cooperação e de responsabilidade.
• Apresentar espaços dedicados à auto-reflexão.
• Conceber e/ou integrar documentos verbais e não-verbais de natureza diversa e de acordo com o nível etário
dos alunos.

1.3. Componentes do Manual


1.3.1. Grammar Zone
A Grammar Zone pretende ajudar o aluno numa certa reflexão sobre os itens da Língua Inglesa presentes neste
projecto, esquematizando, com maior ou menor grau de apoio visual (cores, setas, palavras ou letras destacadas) a(s)
regra(s) subjacentes às estruturas gramaticais.
Com a colaboração do professor, o aluno deverá registar, passo a passo, a sua “reflexão” sobre um determinado
conteúdo de forma a perceber melhor o seu funcionamento e aplicação.

1.3.2. Info Box


Trata-se de uma chamada de atenção para aspectos particulares, quer a nível gramatical, quer a nível vocabular.

1.3.3. Writing Zone


A Writing Zone procura auxiliar o aluno (e o próprio professor) na estruturação de tarefas escritas, que requerem
concentração, conteúdos socioculturais e outros. Assim, tenta-se orientar o aluno não apenas nas suas ideias, mas
também na organização das mesmas, na estrutura do texto, etc.

1.3.4. Vocabulary Help


Neste espaço o vocabulário é trabalhado de duas formas diferentes. Por vezes, dá-se um sinónimo ou uma
expressão sinónima da palavra, outras vezes (sempre que pertinente) faz-se apelo à tradução de algum vocabulário,
valorizando-se a comparação com a Língua Materna.
Ocasionalmente, os alunos são incentivados a consultar o dicionário, a fim de desenvolverem a prática da sua
utilização.

1.3.5. Language Function Zone


Nestas caixas, apresentam-se as funções de linguagem necessárias à concretização de situações de comunicação.

1.3.6. Joke Zone


Ao longo do Manual encontram-se espaços lúdicos, onde os alunos podem ler anedotas contextualizadas.

©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO 5


1.3.7. Culture Zone
Esta rubrica possibilita a identificação de aspectos da sociedade e cultura anglo-americana, bem como a reflexão
sobre afinidades/diferenças entre a cultura portuguesa e a cultura anglo-americana.

1.3.8. “How well am I doing?” Zone


A “How well am I doing?” Zone é um espaço em que o aluno vai registando, no final de cada Task , pequenos aponta-
mentos que lhe permitem determinar o seu progresso. Para o professor, esta pequena reflexão pretende funcionar como
feedback, permitindo uma acção imediata de acordo com os registos efectuados pelo aluno.

1.3.9. Project Zone


No final de cada Task, existe sempre uma página dedicada à apresentação de sugestões que poderão ser trabalhadas
na metodologia de trabalho de projecto.

1.3.10. Help Zone


A Help Zone é um apêndice, colado à contracapa do Manual, a que os alunos podem recorrer para melhor compreen-
são de assuntos gramaticais desenvolvidos no Manual ou para alargamento de vocabulário dos assuntos tratados através
da consulta de esquemas. Ao longo do Manual é feita uma remissão para esta Help Zone, para que seja mais fácil e mais
directo o seu manuseamento.

2. Workbook
Nas páginas iniciais do Workbook, o professor poderá encontrar exercícios de revisão de conteúdos de língua inglesa
essenciais à aquisição de novos conteúdos.
O Workbook fornece aos alunos actividades suplementares que podem servir como consolidação, remediação e/ou
aprofundamento dos conteúdos do Manual. Tem, também, um carácter formativo, dando informação, quer ao aluno, quer
ao professor da situação do aluno em cada momento.
A cada Task do Manual corresponde uma ficha no Workbook com actividades relativas aos aspectos que considerá-
mos mais importantes ou susceptíveis de serem mais problemáticos para os alunos. A estrutura do Workbook segue o
critério do Manual, com a diferenciação das aprendizagens. Deste modo, apresentamos uma tipologia de exercícios
diversificada, para ir ao encontro dos diferentes estilos de aprendizagem, conhecimentos e competências. Esta estrutura
possibilita, assim, um trabalho autónomo, respeitando os diferentes ritmos dos alunos e permitindo a auto-correcção.
As actividades referentes a cada Task estão elaboradas em dois graus de complexidade: a cada Task do Manual cor-
respondem duas fichas no Workbook, uma de menor grau de complexidade (A) e outra de maior grau de complexidade (B).
No final de cada Zone, os alunos poderão realizar o Checkpoint. Estas fichas têm um objectivo formativo e informativo.
Ao longo do Manual é feita uma remissão para o Workbook, para que seja fácil e prática a sua utilização a par e
passo com o Manual.

3. Leitura Extensiva
Deep Trouble Down Under é um conto de leitura extensiva, de oferta, que pretende motivar os alunos para a
leitura e desenvolver processos de interacção com o texto. Este material encontra-se didactizado e gravado no CD áudio,
pelo que os alunos poderão ouvir a história enquanto a lêem.

6 ©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO


4. Separadores
O projecto inclui um conjunto de treze separadores, contendo as sugestões metodológicas e as soluções do Manual.

5. CD Áudio do Aluno e CD Áudio do Professor


Os CDs áudio do aluno e do professor contêm diferentes tipos de registos para actividades de Listening, dramati-
zados por falantes nativos, possibilitando aos alunos ouvir a língua inglesa em diferentes situações (entrevistas, diá-
logos, poemas, exercícios de pronúncia, soluções de alguns exercícios do Manual e testes de Listening ).

6. DVD – That’s me (Graham, Inverness; Naela, Bristol; Róisin, Carna)


Eat it ( Graham’s Fried Breakfast ; Róisin’s BLT )
O projecto inclui um DVD com cinco episódios que retratam o dia-a-dia de três jovens adolescentes que vivem
em três regiões diferentes do Reino Unido: o Graham, que vive na Escócia, a Naela, que vive em Inglaterra e Róisin,
que vive na Irlanda. Estes episódios estão adequados ao nível etário e linguístico dos alunos e aos conteúdos do
Programa, podendo contribuir para uma extensão dos conteúdos abordados no Manual e enriquecer o processo de
ensino-aprendizagem. A didactização destes episódios encontra-se no Material Fotocopiável deste Caderno de Apoio
ao Professor.

7. Transparências
O projecto inclui dez transparências que permitem uma abordagem dos conteúdos mais diversificada e interessante.

8. Apresentações em PowerPoint
Do projecto faz parte um conjunto de slides (em PowerPoint) de oferta ao professor, disponível na área de Apoio
Internet da Texto Editores (www.projectos.TE.pt). Tendo em consideração que materiais em suporte informático têm
tido um papel cada vez mais preponderante no processo de ensino-aprendizagem e pensando ainda na predis-
posição dos alunos no que diz respeito ao computador e aos programas informáticos, criámos este conjunto de
slides. Estes materiais pretendem auxiliar o professor na apresentação, recuperação e/ou consolidação de conteú-
dos da língua inglesa. Assim, os conteúdos vão sendo apresentados à turma de uma forma dinâmica e com o recurso
a imagens, diagramas, cores, para uma melhor compreensão dos conteúdos por parte dos alunos.

9. Caderno de Apoio ao Professor


O Caderno de Apoio ao Professor, para além de articular todos os materiais do projecto como um todo, inclui um
conjunto de materiais destinados a serem fotocopiados que reúne um conjunto de fichas de recuperação (Extra
Practice) um Placement Test, testes de nível diferenciado para cada uma das Zones, testes de Listening e fichas de
exploração do DVD.

Students’ opinions about going back to school
Madison: My favourite part about going back to school is all the new stationery! Each summer I enjoy buying new folders
and pens and stuff. They show my personality. This year everything is about the sea. I don’t like homework, though.
Lucas: I think the best thing about going back to school is seeing all our friends again. I also think it’s great to learn
new stuff! Maths and Geography are cool subjects. The only thing I don’t like is getting up early in the morning.
Ethan: Summer holidays are great and outdoor activities are my favourite thing but going to school is cool too… First
of all, because we can make new friends and second, I don’t have to listen to my mum all day! What I don’t like is
doing tests, especially History tests: we have to do a lot!

A holiday incident
Last summer holidays my family and I went to Cornwall. It took us 5 hours to get there by car. On the way we
stopped at a few service stations to fill up, to eat something and stretch our legs. We stayed in a caravan on a big
campsite. We did a lot of different things: we went for long walks, played games, went shopping and swam in the
lake. I was enjoying myself a lot until something terrible happened. One morning I decided to explore the forest near
the campsite all by myself. I walked and walked. I watched the birds and squirrels and I took some photos. When I felt
hungry I decided to return to the caravan. That's when I realised I couldn't find the way back. I tried different directions
but I always ended up in the same place. "Oh, God! What am I going to do? I'm so frightened!" I thought. To make
things worse it started to rain and there was a strong wind. I decided to take shelter under a tree and wait till my parents
came to get me. After several hours they found me. It was already dark and I was cold, hungry and terribly scared.

Do teens need better places to hang out?

Harriet: Good afternoon. My guests today are Lisa, Matt, Rose and Bill. Lisa and Matt are 13 years old and Rose
and Bill are 14. Lisa lives in our city and Matt, Rose and Bill come from towns nearby. We’re here to discuss the topic:
Do teens need better places to hang out?
Rose, what’s your opinion about this?
Rose: I hang out with my friends at the local park or we walk around. We usually end up in each others’ houses
because there’s nowhere else to go and it’s not safe to stay in the street. I don’t think there are enough places for us
to hang out.
Harriet: What about you, Matt?
Matt: There’s nowhere in my town to hang out. Well, teens just hang out outside the shops and have to go into
the park where only really little kids go! Old people always complain about the noise but if we have nowhere else to
hang out, what do people expect us to do? Sometimes we feel really bored. There isn’t anywhere cool to hang out.
Harriet: I’d like to hear your opinion, Bill.
Bill: During the summer my friends and I usually hang out at the beach, or there’s a restaurant we teens all hang
out in. The rest of the year we usually meet at the shopping centre because there we feel safe from street violence or
bad weather. It also has everything we need: food, entertainment, shops… so it’s OK, really.
Harriet: Finally, let’s hear Lisa’s opinion.
Lisa: Well, living here makes all the difference. I’m really lucky because I live in a city where there’s loads to do!
There’s bowling, shopping, a cinema, Laser Quest, two huge parks and lots of clubs and activities so I think that’s enough.

Activity 4
Is the Internet safe?

Sophie: I usually chat online with other teens. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with going into chatrooms if you
follow safety rules. Never give out any personal information like your name, e-mail, telephone number, and so on and
don’t even think about meeting anyone. Remember that you’re only there to have fun. Sometimes people ask me to
meet them but I just ignore them.

Mike: I think the Internet can be dangerous but it’s also very useful. It gives us lots of possibilities: we can do
research for school projects, get help with our homework, share ideas with other students… but I agree that there
are some negative aspects. For example, you have to be careful with chatrooms. You can’t trust people you meet
online. They may lie to you.

©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO 13


David: I think chatrooms are great. You can meet interesting people from all over the world and have a lot of fun. I
don’t think kids should be forbidden to use chatrooms because they would just want to do it more and more. I just
think parents should explain chatroom dangers to their children and tell them that if they feel unsafe, they should
leave the chatroom.

Betty: Personally, I think that, like other dangers that teenagers face (drugs, smoking, and so on), you just have to be
careful and follow the rules. Chatrooms, for example, are only dangerous if you’re irresponsible and start to give out
personal information. Sometimes I’m alone at home and I feel bored and so I go into chatrooms to hang out with
other teens. I also surf the Net a lot when I need to do research.

Part A – Free time activities

Jojo: Hi! I’m Jojo. I don’t have much free time because I’m always on tour, going to photo shoots and giving interviews.
I take this job very seriously but I always try to find some time to hang out with family and friends. The other thing
I like doing in my free time is shopping – like all girls do – watching movies and going to museums. It’s a fun way to
learn about other cultures and History.

Wayne Rooney: I’m very lucky. My job and my favourite hobby are the same: playing football. But when I‘ve got
some free time I also like swimming because it’s very relaxing especially when I’m under a lot of pressure like before
important games. Karate is also another hobby of mine. I started it when I was a young boy.

Zac Efron: Everybody calls me Troy but my real name is Zac Efron. Troy is the name of my character in “High School
Musical” where I play the captain of the basketball team. My favourite sports are golf, skiing, rock climbing and
snowboarding. But now I’m also a big fan of surfing. When I’m at home I play the piano and at the moment I’m learning
how to play the guitar. As I’m very active, I’m also fixing two cars with my younger brother: a Delorean and a ’65
Mustang convertible.

Activity 1
Teens go shopping

Exercise B
Daisy: Like any other girl I like shopping. My favourite clothes are jeans. I also like tops. I don’t usually wear skirts
because I don’t feel comfortable in them and I really dislike dresses. I prefer boots to shoes and in summer
flip-flops are my favourite. Blue is my favourite colour and I hate yellow. I often wear earrings but I don’t like
necklaces or bracelets.

Alex: My favourite clothes are jeans and T-shirts. My favourite kind of shoes is trainers, of course. I don’t feel
comfortable wearing shoes. I hate it when my mum tells me to wear trousers, a shirt and tie for a special occasion
like she did for my grandma’s birthday party. In winter I usually wear sweatshirts, anoraks and… jeans, of course.
I hate scarves, gloves and stuff like that but I think caps are really cool.

Fashionable Gwen

Vogue: Gwen, people know you as a great singer, an actress and now a fashion designer. How do you explain this
new side of you?
Gwen: It’s not exactly something new. I’ve always been interested in fashion since I was a child. But I have my
own style. I like to be different. I didn’t find the clothes I liked in the shops, so I had to design them.
Vogue: Yes, but why did you decide to be a professional designer?
Gwen: My friends are always asking me questions like “Do you think I’m OK? What do you think of my new
dress? What should I wear to the party?” They trust my opinion. So I started designing clothes for them too.
Vogue: How do you find the time to sing and design clothes?
Gwen: Well, when you like doing something you always find the time. In fact if I didn’t like singing so much, I’d
only design clothes, bags and accessories.
Vogue: Tell us a little bit about the style of your clothes.
Gwen: I like a bit of everything. It depends on my mood: I can wear very elegant dresses, punk clothes and high
heels, skater style clothes… you know… baggy pants and tiny tops…
Vogue: You obviously like what you’re doing.
Gwen: Oh, yes. If I had the time, I’d do a design course and learn much more.
Vogue: Thank you, Gwen. We’ll meet again in your next fashion show.
Gwen: Bye.

Activity 9
Teens’ opinions about fashion

Kelly: It’s true that celebrities influence what you buy. If you see a famous person wearing something you just want
to buy it. I’m sure I’m influenced by famous people and their decisions about fashion. I fight against it a bit because I
think I should have my own individual look but when I go shopping I always look for things I know my fave celebrities
wear. Most of the time this is a problem because famous people wear designer labels and they are very expensive.
Sometimes, like on my birthday, at Christmas and so on my parents give me some extra money and that’s when I buy
some special clothes or shoes. Now, as for tattoos and piercings, I don’t really like them, no matter how many my
fave stars have. I don’t need them to feel cool.

Joe: I am not into fashion and I definitely do not copy celebrities. I have my own style. I think we should wear what
makes us look good and feel self-confident. If I could afford it, I would buy cool clothes but not necessarily what
famous people wear. Sometimes people buy certain designer labels just because those clothes are famous and not
because they think they’re special. Many of my friends feel insecure about their appearance. They would be happier
if they didn’t worry so much about their looks. Famous people’s clothes are always very expensive and teens don’t
usually have that much money to spend. I hate tattoos but if my parents let me, I’ll get an ear piercing.

Sam Abell: a magazine photographer
Graham Nicklin is a year 8 student at an International school in Boston. He is a member of the school newspaper.
The school invited Sam Abell, a very famous National Geographic Magazine photographer, to talk about his job.
Graham: Good morning, Mr Abell. I’m very pleased to be talking to you because you’re a very famous photographer.
How did you start your career?
Sam Abell: Hello. Well... Before I joined the National Geographic team, I worked for a newspaper. But my photos
were very different then. They were all about city life and city people.
Graham: Why did you decide to be a photographer?
Sam Abell: My father was a Geography teacher and he was in charge of the school photography club. I was a
member of the club and I liked it so much that I decided to be a photographer . And now I’m lucky because I work for
this wonderful magazine.
Graham: What do you need to be a National Geographic photographer?
Sam Abell: All the photographers here have got a college degree in Geography, Sociology or Anthropology and of
course a Photography course.
Graham: Is it hard to be a photographer for this magazine?
Sam Abell: Well... It’s hard when you know that you have to travel six to eight months in the year and it’s difficult
to be far from your family. It is sometimes dangerous when the place where you are is at war for example. But it’s a
great job when everybody loves your photographs.
Graham: How many photos do you take when you’re on an assignment?
Sam Abell: The number is very high, generally between 11,000 and 15,000. You must remember we’re professional
photographers and we must explore every little thing and every little side of the assignment. It takes us a long time
and lots of rolls of film to get the perfect photo. That’s why I always travel with this big bag full of rolls of films.
Graham: Have you got a special place as a photographer?
Sam Abell: Yes, I have. Every photographer has got a special place where they like to take photographs. Mine is
Australia. This country has got wonderful landscapes and I always find some fantastic new spots to photograph!

Interviewing US5

Teen Radio: My name is Jess Stone. I’m from Teen Radio and I’m going to ask US 5 some questions.
Good-afternoon Chris, Izzy, Jay, Mikel and Richie and thank you for being in this programme.
All 5 boys: Good-afternoon.
Teen Radio: Chris, my first question is for you. Was it easy to join the band?
Chris: No way. In fact it was very hard. I had to go to some auditions and the other guys were very good too. But
it was worthwhile because now the band, the music, the dancing and the touring with US5 are my life.
Teen Radio: Are you still at school?
Chris: Unfortunately, I had to drop out of school to make this dream come true. However I try to read as much as I
can to stay in touch with news and views. I also write the songs for the band, so I’m pretty busy.

16 ©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO


Teen Radio: What do you do to relax?
Chris: Oh, I go surfing whenever I can.
Teen Radio: Izzy, is US5 your first experience with music?
Izzy: No, I’ve been singing and dancing since I was 15 years old. Before I joined the US5, I was in a band called
Exact. I can say music is my life.
Teen Radio: Izzy, the other members of the band told me that you have a great sense of humor and you are a very
talented writer. Is that true?
Izzy: (laughs) Well, yes, I love telling jokes and writing poems, and short stories are my favourite free time activities.
Teen Radio: Richie, when did you start your career?
Richie: I started it when I was very young. I think I was 4 years old. In the beginning I started as an actor. I starred
in musicals such as Christmas Carol and Wizard of Oz. I was also in TV commercials and Hollywood movies. I wanted
to be an actor.
Teen Radio: What made you change your mind and become a singer?
Richie: I went to the auditions for the band and I was accepted. It was something great and I decided to dedicate
myself to singing, dancing and writing songs. I really love what I’m doing.
Teen Radio: Mikel, tell us a little about yourself.
Mikel: Well, like all the others, I love singing and dancing. Before joining the band I was dancing with US and
European artists. Some people say I’m like Michael Jackson. They say I’ve got a lot of energy and…
Jay:… and a crazy sense of humour. He’s always making us laugh.
Teen Radio: Jay, I heard you are multi-talented and creative and that you not only sing and dance but also
compose and act.
Jay: Yeah, that’s true. That’s my life. I get involved in everything I do.
Teen Radio: Yes, it seems you are a perfectionist even in your hobbies.
Jay: That’s right. I love playing tennis and I’ve already won some tournaments.
Teen Radio: Thank you all. It was cool to have you all here.

Favourite films

Gabriel: You wake up in the night. You can’t see a thing but you just know there is something hiding in the dark…
You want to switch on the light but it’s not the light your fingers touch, it’s the face of a werewolf! I just love horror
films. They are the ones that make you jump out of your seat and keep you awake at night listening to every
sound…And they make you hold your breath or even scream! The best of them all is Wolf with Michelle Pfeiffer and
Jack Nicholson.

Leo: For me action movies are the best! There are fights, car crashes, bullets, explosions… you name it! Anything
can happen. Live Free or Die Hard is the best action movie I’ve ever seen. Bruce Willis is a tough hero but at the same
time he’s got this terrific sense of humour. The film is loaded with action and everything happens so fast! It’s a real
must- see!

©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO 17


Megan: My favourite type of films is animated films. I’ve seen them all! Shrek, Ice Age 1 and 2, The Incredibles or
Cars… They are very creative and imaginative films. Common people and animals or cars become everyday heroes.
The one I prefer is Shrek because it’s a story that tells us that looks aren’t so important. The princess loves Shrek, no
matter what.

Favourite means of transport

David: I love travelling but I don’t usually go abroad when I am on holiday. I stay in England. I usually go to
Portsmouth where my uncle and aunt live. They’ve got a daughter and a son. They’re 13 and 15 years old. I love being
with them. My cousins and I always have a lot of fun together. That’s why I also visit them when there is a long
weekend. I go by train because my parents sometimes work and can’t take me. But that’s OK. I like travelling by train.
You can buy the ticket in advance and you choose the compartment and seat. I always sit by the window because I
like watching the countryside. It’s green and so peaceful. There’s a lot to see and you have plenty of time to really
enjoy the view. If you want, you can also read and listen to music. Whatever you choose to do, travelling by train is
always relaxing.

Kelly: I don’t travel alone. When you’re only 14 years old it’s not very safe to go on holiday by yourself. Anyway
where’s the fun? You need to be with your family or some friends if you want to enjoy yourself. My father works on a
cruise-liner. He’s a steward. Sometimes he stays on board for two whole months so my mother takes care of my two
brothers and me. But because my father works there, he takes us with him on shorter trips of like a week or two. I
really enjoy the ocean and going on a cruise. It’s not dangerous and you’ve got everything you need on board: games,
tennis courts, swimming pools, discos, cinema… And you can meet different people and visit new countries when
the ship comes to shore. Travelling by boat is definitely the most amazing experience for me…

Jim: I enjoy travelling a lot. Perhaps because I’ve travelled to different places and countries since I was a little boy.
You know, my mother works for a travel agency so sometimes she gets special discounts… and that’s why my brother,
my parents and I go abroad for the weekend or for two or three days. We always travel by plane and I love it. It’s the
fastest and safest means of transport. When I grow up I think I’ll be a pilot. I feel great when I look out of the window
and see the clouds so close to me or the bright blue sky. It’s amazing to see the view from up there.
Besides that, you can listen to music, read, watch a film or just sleep.

GUIÃO DE UTILIZAÇÃO DO DVD

O projecto Cool Zone inclui um DVD que contém três episódios relativos à vida diária de três jovens (duas
raparigas e um rapaz) de zonas diferentes da Grã-Bretanha: That’s me: Graham, Inverness (Scotland), Naela, Bristol
(England), Róisin, Carna (Ireland).
Os três jovens abordam, na primeira pessoa, temas relacionados com a família, a escola, as suas actividades
preferidas, os desportos praticados e aspectos culturais do seu país.
Este DVD contém, ainda, dois episódios onde dois dos jovens acima mencionados confeccionam pratos típicos do
seu dia a dia: Eat it: Graham’s fried breakfast, Róisin’s BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato) on toast.

Objectivos
A exploração deste DVD é importante no processo de ensino-aprendizagem da língua inglesa, pois permite:
• Fazer uma abordagem metodológica de forma diferente e motivadora.
• Aprofundar o conhecimento de aspectos sócio-culturais de outras comunidades.
• Desenvolver a curiosidade dos alunos sobre a vida noutras partes do mundo.
• Respeitar as diferenças culturais.

Sugestões metodológicas
A fim de facilitar a exploração do DVD, foram elaboradas fichas de trabalho que correspondem aos diferentes
episódios.
Numa primeira etapa, os alunos poderão realizar as actividades de pre-viewing, seguindo-se o visionamento do
episódio. Numa segunda etapa, os alunos voltam a ver o episódio, mas fazendo pausas nos momentos que corres-
pondem aos diferentes exercícios. Depois de realizadas as actividades e corrigido o trabalho dos alunos, sugerimos
algumas actividades de after-viewing.
Sugere-se que os episódios referentes ao That’s me sejam visionados a partir do final do primeiro período e os
dois episódios correspondentes ao Eat it após a exploração da Zone 2, Task A.

Tapescript
Graham in Inverness
GRAHAM (off): Inverness is the most northerly city in the British Isles. It lies in the heart of the Highlands of Scotland amidst
some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery in Britain. There are towering mountains and deep glens. Inverness is at the
mouth of the river Ness. I’m sure you’ve all heard of the monster Nessie, who lives up the river in the loch. The city is a great
place to live. It has one of the lowest crime rates in Britain. This could be because the people are all really friendly and kind to
each other. This may also be the reason that Inverness is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe. There are many thousands
of people here and many more come every year.
GRAHAM: Hi, there! I’m Graham. Do you like my uniform? I have to wear it, because I’m
a prefect. This means that I’ve got extra responsibilities and we have to look after the little children. Well, I’m on my way
home now. I’ve just finished my higher exam for chemistry. I’m absolutely knackered, because it lasted about three hours. And…
I guess I’ll see you at home!
GRAHAM: Well, it’s nice to get home and out of my school uniform. Not that it bothers me. It’s just that I feel more comfortable
in my normal clothes.

GRAHAM (off): I really would like a new guitar. However just now I can’t afford one, because my parents give me 50 pounds
a month allowance. I have to buy everything with this, so sadly there’s no money left over.
MUM: Graham! Time to go!
GRAHAM: Yeah! I’m just going Mum, it’ll be two seconds!
GRAHAM (off): In the summer holidays I hope to take a job so that I can earn more money, and I finally will be able to buy
my new guitar.
GRAHAM: Yeah, I’m on my way!
GRAHAM IN (off): Just now I’ve got to rush off. I’ve got football training in ten minutes.
COACH MacKAY: We’re going to… have a… just a warm up session without the ball,
then a warm up session with the ball followed by a practice game.
This way… Safe stepping… Go!
GRAHAM (off): Well, I’ve not played football for that long, because I used to play more rugby. Now I’m really enjoying my
football, though. I think one of the reasons I like it, is because it’s a challenge of a different sport. I also play in a good team with
a good coach, and that always makes it more fun.
COACH MacKAY: My name is Allan MacKay. I’m deputy head teacher in Millburn Academy, and I also coach the senior
football team. The boys mostly play for clubs in the town and enjoy their school football to such a degree that we’ve been very
successful this year, second in Highland region. Graham has joined the team late in the season. He’s a very good rugby player and
hockey player and this has given him excellent fitness and he’s been a great asset to the team in the second half of the season.

GRAHAM (off): I’m a member of the Highland Youth Voice. Youth Voice is a parliament of 70 young people from throughout the
north of Scotland. We meet and we discuss a number of topics. We’ve recently succeeded in producing an alcohol awareness
leaflet and a video on the dangers of drugs. Our next project is to develop a card, which will allow young people cheaper transport
in the Highlands. We know that we’ll be successful, because we know people listen to us. We have large debates on our website
and last month we met the First Minister of Scotland.
GRAHAM: He understood that young people would listen better to other young people.
And really that’s what Young Voice is all about: It’s by young people, for young people.
GRAHAM: Well, I thought I could introduce my family to you. This is Kirsty, she’s 15…
KIRSTY: Hey!
GRAHAM: …and she’s really still the baby in the family, because of all five of us
she’s the smallest. And right here we’ve got my mum, Fiona…
MUM: Hi!
GRAHAM: …and people say we look like each other, but I’ll let you decide that for yourselves. And this is my dad, David…
DAD: Hello!

20 ©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO


GRAHAM: …and he’s losing his hair even faster than usual at the moment, because in a couple of weeks he’s going to have
to teach me how to drive. And he doesn’t seem too happy about the idea of getting in a car with me. And last but not least is
Catherine…
CATHERINE: Hi!
GRAHAM: … who’s 12 years old, and she’s the troublemaker of the family at the minute. And…she’s always got a cheeky
smile on her face.
MUM: With five of us in the family life is really very busy. Tonight everybody is here helping me in the kitchen prepare the
meal. We usually have a rule that if you help to prepare the meal, you don’t have to help clear up. Graham likes to help prepare
the meal because then he can sneak out of the door, and pretend that he’s doing his homework, but really I suspect he’s watching
TV. If he doesn’t help me prepare the meal, then he comes and helps to clear up afterwards.
GRAHAM: We thought that you might like to listen to some Scottish music. This is a traditional song called ‘Westering
Home.’ We don’t play together very often, but I hope you’ll enjoy it all the same.
GRAHAM (off): Now I’m going to tell you about some traditional Scottish things, which I think you may be interested in.
GRAHAM: As you can see, I’m wearing a different kilt. This is because each family belongs to a clan and the clans have
different tartans that they can wear. This is the different tartan, which I was wearing before. This is called the Royal Stewart
tartan and is one of the tartans that I can wear for my clan. You might also notice that I’ve changed my sporran. Sporrans are
more for decoration than anything else, but you can carry your own money and a wallet and… keys and things like that.
Something else that’s part of the Highland dress is the sgian-dubh. This is a knife that you wear in your sock. I would show it to
you, but if I drew the blade, then I would have to draw blood because it’s tradition.
DAD: I think Scottish traditional music has a lot in common with the whole Celtic music tradition. We particularly like it for
dancing and partying. The bagpipes, which I’ve been playing, are very difficult to play with any other instrument. Within the family
we do try to play together. Graham still likes playing rock guitar but has surprised himself by finding how easy it is to play in the
rhythm backing with us and the family group.
GRAHAM (off): Something you might not be so familiar with, though, is the Highland Games. In Inverness we have a large
Highland Games over a whole weekend every summer. The Highland Games is an event with a number of sports, dancing and music.
GRAHAM: In the future I’d like to go to Newcastle University to study medicine.
I’d like to become a doctor.
GRAHAM (off): I hope you’ve enjoyed learning about traditional Scottish culture and lifestyles. I also hope that one day you’ll
come and visit this wonderful country for yourself..
GRAHAM: Anyway, goodbye for now.

Naela in Bristol
NAELA (off): This is Bristol. It’s a fairly large and busy city… on the Bristol Channel, not far from Wales. The suspension
bridge is famous and so is the old cathedral. We live in a mixed area not far from the city centre. I like my area very much and
I’ve lived here for nearly ten years now, and the people here are so nice and friendly.
NAELA: Hello! I’m Naela and I’m here today at the Climbing Centre near to where I live. This used to be a church but eleven
years ago it was sold and converted into the Climbing Centre. Today it has over 40 000 members, and people from just about
everywhere come
here to climb. I’m a beginner but I’m here today to practise my climbing.
INSTRUCTOR: Right. Go up!
NAELA: No, I can’t go any further up.
INSTRUCTOR: Yeah! Hold on…
NAELA: No, I can’t.
INSTRUCTOR: That’s it! You can! Stand up… Go off… Now you climb down. See? Just keep leaning back… And there you
go… Tough?
NAELA: Horrible!
INSTRUCTOR: See how much easier that was?
NAELA (off): We are a family of four: my mum, my two sisters and myself. My mum’s called Anna and is very caring. My sister
Lanie is an angel and so is my little sister Daisy.

©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO 21


We get along very well and love each other very much. You might wonder about our names, Naela and Lanie. They’re very
unusual. They’re actually made up from my parents’ names, Anna and Larrie.
NAELA: How small were they when you first saw them?
DAISY: They were about… that big!
NAELA (off): I am dyslexic, which means I have great trouble in learning to read and write.
NAELA: It was very hard for me at school as a young child, because everyone else was learning so fast, and I got left behind.
When my mum told me she wanted me to go to a special school for dyslexic children, I was sad to leave my friends and the
school I was used to. But I thought it might help me and make everything easier and that was good. I really liked the dyslexia
school because everyone around me had the same problem as me, and so I felt comfortable and I wasn’t afraid to ask for help.
Now everything is much easier for me. I keep a diary every day, I write poetry and sometimes my own stories. I also help my
sister Lanie with her homework because she is also dyslexic.
NAELA: Did you have a good day at school today, Lanie?
LANIE: Yeah.
NAELA: What did you do?
LANIE: Religious Education and Geography.
NAELA: And which one is your favourite?
LANIE: Religious Education.
NAELA: Why?
LANIE: Because Geography is boring and we haven’t got a very nice teacher.
NAELA: So what did you do in Geography?
LANIE: At he moment we’re doing things about Bristol.
NAELA: And?
LANIE: We’re doing interesting facts on it and… and doing…ummm…that we’re famous for fish and chips and something
about sticks and stones in the environment.
LANIE: How do you spell ‘could’?
NAELA: Oh, you know! It’s… ‘C-O-U-Lucky Duck.’
LANIE: ‘C-O-U-Lucky Duck’! That’s a good one! And how do you spell ‘because’?
NAELA: ‘Big Elephants Can Always Understand Small Elephants.’
LANIE: ‘Big Elephants Can Always Understand Small Elephants.’
NAELA: Yeah!
LANIE: It’s a good rhyme!
NAELA: It’s a good way of remembering it.
LANIE: We… We learned one at the school today. It goes: ‘If it ends with Y replace it with an I and add… [clap-clap] …
E-S.’
NAELA: Oh, that’s good! ‘If it ends with Y replace it with an I and add… [clap-clap] …E-S.’
LANIE: Yeah! ‘If it ends with…
NAELA AND LANIE: …Y replace it with an I and… [clap-clap] E-S.’ ‘If it ends with Y replace it with an I…’
NAELA: Hello! These are my best friends. This is Hazel.
HAZEL: Hello!
NAELA: This is Sean.
SEAN: Hi!
NAELA: This is Kai.
KAI: Hi ya!
NAELA: And this is Freya.
FREYA: Hey!
NAELA: We go shopping, we hang out and we have a lot of fun.
EVERYONE: Yeah…! Yeah…!
NAELA: Look at the little bin!
THE OTHERS: Beauty!

22 ©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO


NAELA (off): Money is always a problem for me. My pocket money is gone
long before I get it so I can really only afford window-shopping.
HAZEL: So what are you guys doing for your summer holidays?
KAI: I’m going down to Cornwall for two weeks with Sean and my other friend, Tasha, and we’re going to be like surfing and
probably just go out to the beaches and stuff, which will be quite cool.
NAELA: Oh, you lucky thing!
KAI: Yeah! What are you doing?
NAELA: I might be going on a girlie holiday with my friends to Spain or Metropolis or whatever it’s called.
KAI: Who’re you going with?
NAELA: My friends from college and they’re 16, 17… and there’s four of them…
Oh, no, five of us! Yes! I don’t know…
FREYA: You’re so lucky!
NAELA: One of my main interests is interior design. I also help my mum plan the renovation of our house. The kitchen is
ready and I am now finishing plans for my new room. It’s hard work but I really enjoy it.
MUM: OK.
NAELA: And…
MUM: What have you got?
NAELA: As you can see everything’s quite pink… or pinky-purple. These are the kind of colours I want on my walls, like lilac,
pinky kind of colours. And then the darker purple and darker lilac colours is for the design on top.
MUM: But are you going to have… Are you going to have each wall a different colour?
NAELA: Yeah, so that this…like back wall, where the head…where the bed goes would be lilac.
MUM: Right.
NAELA: And then the wall with the window on it, might be pink.
MUM: OK. Well, I wouldn’t like that but it’s your room.
NAELA: Yeah… Well I think it looks good and it’s modern. You like it, don’t you?
DAISY: Yeah.
NAELA: It will look good.
MUM: OK.
TEACHER: Hi, girls!
GIRLS: Hello!
NAELA: Hello!
GIRL 1: Hello, Kizzy!
TEACHER: Come in!
THE GIRLS: Hi!
GIRLS: Fine…
NAELA (off): I’m very into music, especially singing, and twice a week I take singing lessons.
TEACHER: OK, what I want you to do is put your hands on your stomach. We’re going to start off with our vowels. What I
want you to do is follow me, OK? Keep your…
…your mouth nice and relaxed, your tongue flat and your mouth open. We’ll start with the vowels, so if I do it first and you
can copy me, OK? Va, va, va, va, va, va, va, va, va…
THE GIRLS: Va, va, va, va, va, va…
TEACHER (off): I started Studio Seven two years ago and the reason for this was to develop young children in the community
into professional artists, and build up their confidence and explore their creativity. I have also, the…one of the main things I think
is important is that the…the Studio Seven membership is…is relatively cheap because the kids in the community can’t afford to
go to…a professional stage school, they just don’t have the funds. So here we only charge five pound a session. We run two
sessions, one’s on the Tuesday and the other one’s on the Thursday, from five thirty to eight thirty. And my ultimate goal as a
professional artist myself, is to pass on my knowledge and develop these children, so that they can go into the entertainment
world if they wish to do so.
EVERYONE: …Let it shine, let it shine…

©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO 23


TEACHER: And again…
TEACHER: Naela is one of my students. She’s one of my older students. She’s developing quite well. She… The confidence
is a little bit low at the moment, but that’s what we’re developing now. Her vocal skills are quite excellent.
TEACHER: OK, one more time please, Naela. And remember, diaphragm: keep your throat nice and relaxed and… and open,
OK? And I want you to sing a song for me. OK. Please.
NAELA: ‘You give me butterflies… Got me flying so high in the sky I can’t control my butterflies…’
NAELA: With lots of hard work and dedication I hope that one day I’ll be a star. Then I’ll be rich, and it will put an end to my
money problems.

Róisín in Carna
RÓISÍN: Fáilte go Conamara = Welcome to Connemara.
RÓISÍN (off): We’re in the west of Ireland. Connemara is a beautiful area with its vast, unspoiled wilderness, its shores
washed by the waves rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean. There are lovely lakes, streams and rocky hills.
RÓISÍN: Hi! I’m Róisín and I live here in Carna. Come inside! I’ll introduce you to my family. Is that…? I think… I don’t
believe this! My parents are training! Hello, mum!
MUM: Hello, Róisín!
RÓISÍN: Hello, Dad!
DAD: Hello, Róisín! …
MUM: /speaking Irish/
RÓISÍN: /speaking Irish/
DAD: /speaking Irish/
RÓISÍN: /speaking Irish/
MUM: /speaking Irish/
RÓISÍN: /speaking Irish/
MUM: /speaking Irish/
DAD: /speaking Irish/
RÓISÍN: …OK… I’ll leave them to it now, because they’re speaking Irish, and you won’t understand a word they’re saying.
RÓISÍN: I’ll introduce you to my brother and sister now. I’m sure they won’t mind. I doubt they’re doing their homework. This
is my brother Paráic and my sister Martha.
PARÁIC AND MARTHA: Hello!
RÓISÍN: They love playing the Play Station, but I don’t really like football.
RÓISÍN: This is where we do our shopping. Although it might look small they have everything you need. This is the Post
Office and, come to think of it, it might be the last one before you get to the United States.
RÓISÍN: This is the secondary school where I’m now going to school. I’ve been coming here for four years, and I have another
two years left before I go to college. I love it here and I look forward to coming into school every morning.
RÓISÍN (off): There are 200 pupils in our school, and it is a policy to wear school uniforms.
RÓISÍN: This is where I do basketball. It’s my favourite sport and it’s very good exercise. Oh! And that’s my coach, Pat Burke.
COACH: Róisín! Here! Come on, let’s go!
RÓISÍN: I’ve got to go!
COACH: In the game, here we go! Right! Move it, Jim! And quick! Let’s go!
RÓISÍN (off): This is my favourite sport, basketball. I have basketball training every Friday after school. I like it because it
keeps my fit and we have a great basketball team and I like to win.
COACH: My name is Pat Burke. I am the basketball coach here in Carna Community School. I am also the PE teacher in the school.
About sixty girls play basketball out of a hundred girls in the school, and we train two evenings a week after school from four until six.
Róisín joined the basketball club here in the school in first year and has shown steady improvement and very dedicated to her training.
RÓISÍN: This is our lovely local church. There’s nobody here now but it’s usually packed on Sunday mornings and Saturday
evenings. That’s when I come.
RÓISÍN (off): Although young people don’t go to church as often as they used to, for most people around here church is very
important. For me and my family, we go every week. And if I don’t go to church then, personally, I feel guilty.

24 ©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO


RÓISÍN: Now I’d like you to meet my friends. This is Naessa…
NAESSA: Hi ya!
RÓISÍN: …who’d be on the tin whistle. Colm, on the accordion. And Róisín who will dance.
RÓISÍN 2: Hello!
RÓISÍN: They have come over today, so that we can have a session, which means that everyone will sing and dance and play
traditional music.
RÓISÍN (off): Traditional music is a very important part of the Irish culture. It gets passed on from generation to generation,
and it involves both the young and the old. There are five of us in the family and we’re all very close. My father is always very
busy, so we look forward to the summer, when we get the opportunity to go on holidays together. Then there’s my sister Martha.
She comes to me for advice about make-up and clothes. And, of course, there’s my brother Park. He is very spoilt by my parents
but not by me. He always does what I tell him to do.
RÓISÍN: /speaking Irish/
MUM: /speaking Irish/
RÓISÍN (off): My mother and I love going shopping together, and we always go for coffee afterwards. We always speak Irish
in our family, of course, because it is the native language.
RÓISÍN (off) : To earn pocket money I waitress at the Carna Bay Hotel. Here I take orders, serve people food and
drink and clear tables. With my pocket money I like to buy clothes, CDs and make-up. Oh, and to save for going out at the
weekend!
RÓISÍN (off): Here we are in Galway city, the biggest city closest to Connemara.
People come here for shopping, to go to the cinema or even for a night out.
RÓISÍN: Sitting beside me is Paráic Ó Connaire, a famous playwright from Connemara. Actually Paráic, I’ve starred in one of
your plays. I wonder does he know that?
RÓISÍN: Oh, God! Where is it? I know I had it yesterday! I was coming downtown,
I went into the shop… I came out. I know I had my purse, because I checked and it was there.
And now it’s going to be… God!
TEACHER: That’s excellent, Róisín! Could you use that characterisation in your exercise with Frank later on today?
RÓISÍN: Yeah, sure.
TEACHER: Great!
TEACHER: In this scene let you be the employer…
RÓISÍN: OK.
TEACHER: …and you’ll be the employee. And initially you play it with a high status.
RÓISÍN: OK.
TEACHER: Initially, play it with a low status. When I clap my hands gently, you’ll switch status and stay in the same characters.
RÓISÍN: Etha Dunne, please! What time do you call this, Etha?
RÓISÍN (off): For as long as I can remember I have always loved acting, and I’m so happy now that I joined the drama class
with Claire, because she has taught me so much about improvisation and how to have more confidence in myself.
ETHA: Listen, just because you’re my boss doesn’t mean you can boss me around, OK? I…
I work long, hard hours for you! I’m a brilliant worker, OK? I mean some people don’t come here till…like what, ten o’clock?
And you’re giving me a hard time for being 30 minutes late?
RÓISÍN: Yeah, but I am your employer.
ETHA: Yeah…
RÓISÍN: I pay you, don’t I?
ETHA: (Yeah…)
RÓISÍN: And I pay you good money, don’t I, Etha?
ETHA: Yeah, yeah, brilliant, brilliant money…
RÓISÍN: So why…?
TEACHER: Cut! Excellent! Weren’t they good? Weren’t they good? OK…
RÓISÍN (off): This is my third year doing dance. Watching famous people sing and dance on the TV inspired me to take it up.
I really love to move to the rhythm and beat of the music.

©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO 25


TEACHER: Over the top. Ready! And…one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
That was great, Róisín! Well done!
RÓISÍN: After a long day in the city with drama and dance classes I love to come to my aunt’s house here in Galway, and
meet up with my friends to prepare for a night out.
AUNT: (Ah…!)
RÓISÍN (Hey!)
AUNT: Hello, Róisín! You’re welcome.
RÓISÍN: (How are you? )
AUNT: How are you?
RÓISÍN: Fine, thanks. How are you?
AUNT: Did you have a nice day in town?
RÓISÍN: Great, good, yeah...
AUNT: Oh, you’re looking lovely! How are you?
GIRL 1: Are you wearing this? Do you want to wear this? What is this…?
GIRL 2: (It’s OK?)
RÓISÍN: Maybe this one here…
RÓISÍN (off): I have many friends but Róisín and Naessa are my best friends.
GIRL 1: (Or even… No…?)
RÓISÍN: I’ve known them for many years, and we do everything together.
GIRL: Oh yeah! Oh yeah! We’ll cover your face. That’ll be good for you!
GIRL 2: Sod off!
RÓISÍN (off): I know it sounds strange, but I’m telling the truth when I say
we never, ever fight.
GIRL: (You look beautiful…)
RÓISÍN (off): I have two more years left in school, before I move on to college
and I will miss the teachers and my friends when I leave.
GIRL 2. I believe you…
GIRL 1: No, seriously…
RÓISÍN: Well, we’re all ready to go to the cinema now, and we’re going to meet up
with some of our other friends there. Hi!
THE GIRLS: Hello!
FRIENDS: Hi! Hi!
RÓISÍN: Well, OK. I leave you here now = Fágtha mé anseo sibh.
It’s been great talking to you. Bye! So long!

Graham’s Fried Breakfast


– This morning I’m gonna make you a fried breakfast and I’ll show you some of the ingredients here.
– Two different types of sausages. These sausages are pork and leek sausages and they’re the most delicious sausages I’ve
ever tasted. They’re just the best!
– This bacon is also absolutely delicious.
– Something else you might not have seen before is black pudding. This is a traditional Scottish delicacy.
– And it is made from sheep bits and it’s soaked in the blood of the sheep. Obviously it wouldn’t be a fry-up without eggs
and tomato.
– The first thing I’ve got to do is to turn the heat on for the frying pan.
– And now what I’m going to do, is stab the sausages, because otherwise they’ll burst open, down here, when they go in the
heat.
– I’m doing the sausages first because they take the longest to cook and I don’t want to be waiting for them when everything
else is ready.
– Every now and then you have to check that it’s not burning, because that doesn’t really taste very nice.

26 ©2007 COOL ZONE • INGLÊS – 8. o ANO


– Now I’m going to cook the black pudding. If you look at it you see that it has got skin on it. But you have to leave the skin
on, because if you don’t leave it on, then the thing falls to bits, when you put it in the frying-pan.
– We’ll leave that to cook for a while.
– Well, now I’m going to put the bacon in, so we’re nearly done.
– I’ll take the bacon and I’ll just put that in. And while that’s cooking itself, I’ll go and get my rolls.
– Now I’m going to make some room in the pan, so I’ve got space for my eggs and my tomatoes.
– So if you use a wee bit of butter, just like that, it tastes so much better.
– Let the butter melt and now we can throw the eggs in.
– Just to keep it hot we’ll cover it all with a lid.
– Well, I’ve cooked all that food but I forgot my vegetables, so I’ll put the tomatoes in just now and put that back on to the
heat.
– And so we’re nearly there.
– Well, it looks like it’s about ready now. So I’ll take it over here and see how I can manage to fit it into my plate.
– I put an egg in each bun and I’ll have a bit of bacon with that.
– And I need to close them, so there’s room on the plate for the rest.
– Well, now that I’ve got everything ready I can take the skin off the pudding. Here you go and now you can sit down and
start to eat.
– A meal like this will keep me going for the whole day!

Róisín’s BLT
– Hello! Now I’m going to make BLT; bacon, lettuce, tomato, on toast.
I make that sometimes after school, because it is easy to make and fast.
– So now I have to grab a few things from the fridge.
– The ingredients you need are: lettuce, tomatoes, some bread, bacon, cheese and of course some mayonnaise.
– Now we have to turn on the grill. We turn it to about 250.
– Now we’ll toast the bread.
– OK, we’ll cut up some lettuce. OK, that should be enough.
– Then you’ll cut up your tomato. You cut it in four slices. OK
– And then you need to grate some cheese.
– Oh, the toast is ready!
– You see, nice and brown.
– Then you put some mayonnaise on it. OK. That’s the mayonnaise. Spread it like this, and over here.
– Then you just get your lettuce. You put the lettuce on first, just put it nice, just a bit. And then you just put the tomatoes
on, four, that’s one in every corner.
Beep, beep
– Oh, the bacon should be ready now!
– OK, you just get the bacon and you place it on top. One here and one here.
– Now, there’s just one more thing left for me to do. Now, we’ll just sprinkle some cheese on the top. I put lots of cheese,
just like this. It’s very messy.
– You just take this slice and you put it back under the grill again.
– You just leave it there for another few minutes and let the cheese melt.
– I just take this with me now because I think it’s ready.
– It is. Just put this on top and you bite into it.
– Uh, hot! It is really hot!

Sugere-se que os slides sejam trabalhados em momentos de sistematização/consolidação. O professor decide o


ritmo em que os elementos que compõem o slide se sucedem.
Antes da aula, o professor pode fotocopiar o slide apenas parcialmente preenchido, permitindo assim que os
alunos interajam com a apresentação em PowerPoint (oralmente e por escrito), completando-o.
Enquanto a apresentação decorre, o professor vai elicitando as respostas dos alunos, antecipando a sistemati-
zação que é feita no slide.
Os slides relativos à Leitura Extensiva poderão ser trabalhados antes de se iniciar a sua exploração, pois fun-
cionam como motivação e primeira abordagem a certos aspectos geográficos e culturais que irão aparecer ao longo
da história.

* A abordagem do Present Perfect adoptada neste projecto baseia-se em estudos linguísticos recentes sobre o assunto. Veja-se, por exemplo,
Linguística Contrastiva. O Ensino da Língua Inglesa. Lisboa, Universidade Católica Editora, 2006, de Isabel Casanova e o artigo “The Present
Perfect. A Perfect Approach”, Revista da Faculdade de Letras, 15 – 5.a Série, Lisboa, 1993, pp.155-164, de Isabel Casanova, Eduarda Melo
Cabrita, Isabel Mealha, Jean McMahon Ramos, Maria Luísa Falcão e Stephen Fordham.

Joe Briggs, 14, lives in Appleton, USA. When he wants to


meet his friends he goes to a square near the public library and
they talk, skate or go to a street café nearby. They usually find it
cool but sometimes they get bored of doing the same thing
5 every weekend.
Their parents feel worried, too, because as there aren’t enough places for their children to hang out and not many
interesting things to do, they are afraid they may get into trouble.
When asked by a teen magazine if he thought there were enough places for teens to meet their friends, Joe
answered: “No, there aren’t. Most of the time we don’t know where to go or what to do. Some years ago, there was
10 a non-profit organization, which planned to change an old shopping centre into a fun safe place for teens to meet.
They wanted it to be the first youth shopping centre in the country. Plans included a skate park, a stage where they
wanted local bands to play at weekends, a drama club where teens could enrol to perform plays, restaurants and
coffee shops, an area to play paintball games, a newspaper and a climbing wall. They wanted the inside walls to
have plenty of space for teens to display their visual artwork and poetry. Unfortunately, they didn’t have enough
15 money to finish the project and this great place for teens to meet wasn’t built. So when we want to be with our
friends we hang out in the street or we go to shopping centres but nowadays this is also very difficult because there
are curfews for unaccompanied young people.
Nowadays we often stay at home and meet online in chatrooms. We exchange information virtually, we tell jokes,
play games and meet interesting new people. It’s a whole new world where we have great fun.”

Part A
A. Read the text carefully.

Adults think that nowadays teens only care about fashion and the
way they look and dress and this is true because young people judge
one another by the clothes and accessories they wear and the hairstyle
they have. Sometimes it is difficult for young people to define their own
5 style because they don’t know exactly what they like and who they really
are. So, they sometimes copy celebrities because they believe that if
they imitate their style, they will be popular among other teenagers.
Jenny Parker, 13, says: “I think young people have idols because we
need someone to be our role model, to motivate us and to help us
10 decide who we are. My idol is Christina Aguilera. I think she is
fashionable and I also like her songs very much. I think she’s a great
singer.”
Young people also think designer labels are really important. They
want to keep up with their friends and be accepted in their group. Jack, 14, says: “I think it’s important to wear
15 labels. You get bullied if you don’t wear them. The other teens usually tease you for wearing rubbish stuff.” Brian, 14,
has a different opinion: “I don’t care about designer clothes or styles. I wear what I like and what makes me feel
good and comfortable. If the other teens don’t want me in their group it’s because they aren’t really my friends.”
Tattoos and piercings are also part of some teens’ style. Pam argues that: “If I had the chance, I would have lots of
piercings. Unfortunately, I can’t because my parents just let me have one ear piercing. If my parents understood how
20 important this is for my image at school, they would let me have more piercings.They always explain that my friends
should accept me for what I am and not because of the way I look and the clothes I wear.”

Listening Test 1
Part 1
It’s October now and Nellie is at school. She’s talking to her friends. They are very happy with their new school. Last year the school
was a bit old, but they made lots of changes during the summer holiday. Now they have a new gym, two new playgrounds, a bigger
library with new books and a computer room with modern computers and TVs. The school now looks great! Mr Scott, the Geography
teacher often takes Nellie’s class to the library to look for information in the new books and encyclopaedias. The students can also
surf the Net to do their projects or go online to send e-mails to other students in other countries. Nellie is involved in a class project
with students from Spain. Last year they didn’t often go to the library because it was quite small and old-fashioned.
Part 2
Nellie and her friends sometimes go to the new gym after school. They usually skate in the new skate park or play basketball.
Then they go home to do their homework. After dinner Nellie goes online and talks to her best friend Gabriel. He is in a different
school, so they never see each other during the week. They send messages, photos and music. At weekends Nellie and Gabriel
go to the shopping centre in the afternoon. It’s their favourite place to hang out. They have lunch at McDonald’s and then go to
the cinema. They both enjoy watching films. Then they have a snack. Most times Gabriel goes home with Nellie. In the evening
they watch wrestling on TV because they think it’s fun to watch! They laugh a lot.

Eating out
Part 1
Simon: My favourite food is Italian food because it’s healthy. Italians know that pasta, cheese and vegetables are a great
combination. Last week Laura, one of my best friends, invited me to McDonald’s for her birthday. I don’t usually eat fast food,
but it was her birthday party so I said yes. She invited lots of other boys and girls from school to have dinner there and then
she invited us all to go to the cinema. We met around eight at the shopping centre.
Part 2
I read the restaurant menu and it was a bit difficult to choose what to eat. You know I’m a vegetarian, so I don’t eat meat at all.
At McDonald’s it’s not easy not to eat meat because lots of sandwiches have got meat like chicken or pork. I asked one of my
friends for help because he usually has lunch at McDonald’s, so he knows all about the menu. He told me to try the new healthy
dishes like the fish burger, the soup or the apple pie. I decided to have some spinach soup as a starter, some French fries and a
fish burger called fillet-O-fish, a chocolate ice cream for dessert and a diet coke. Then we had the cake and we went to the cinema.
Everybody enjoyed themselves.

TV is great!
Part 1
Brian is a fourteen-year-old teenager who likes watching TV.
Brian: Watching TV is something I’ve always liked. I also play basketball because I’m quite tall, but TV is my favourite thing
because it’s relaxing, especially after a long day at school. When I come home around half past four I try to do my homework
immediately to have more time for my favourite TV programmes. My parents are cool with me if my homework is done. I watch
TV after homework in my bedroom and after dinner until half past ten. Let’s say that I watch about three hours on school days. I
can watch a little more at weekends, especially on Friday and Saturday because I can wake up late the next morning.
Part 2
Brian: On school days my favourite programmes are documentaries about wild life. I want to be a vet when I’m older, so it’s great
to see how animals live and what they eat or what makes them sick. I also watch quiz shows because they teach you a lot of
things. At weekends it’s time for TV series, especially police dramas because I think it’s exciting to see how detectives and police
officers catch the bad guys. I also enjoy watching films. Science fiction films are my favourite because they are full of special
effects. My parents sometimes say I spend too much time home watching TV, but I tell them that at least I’m safe!
