4th ESO A 2nd term PBL: Sredni Vashtar

4th ESO A students Naia Cea, Nerea Álvarez, Óscar González, Alexandro Rodríguez and Raúl Rioboo have chosen Hector Hugh Munro's story "Sredni Vashtar" for their 2nd term PBL. This is what they have sent us:

Sredni Vashtar

Conradin was ten years old and lived with his aunt, Mrs Roop and she was strict and didn't let Conradin have funny things. Conradin have a garden shed andhe played into the gaden with his chicken. One day Conradin ought a ferret and He put it into a cage, Conradin mustn't open it to no permit the ferret scape. Conradin has a ferret special name, Sredni Vashtar and he think it had MAGIC powers. One day Mrs Roop shold the chicken and other day after went to the shed and opened the ferret cage, and Sredni Vashtar run to the garden and Mrs Roop disappeared. Conradin could eat a lot and thought that Sredni Vaashtar used his powers to make disappeared Mrs Roop.
The song:

Pilot was a pop rock group formed in 1973 in Edinburgh, Scotland by former Bay City Rollers members David Paton and Billy Lyall. "Magic" is a popular music song of 1974, the first commercial success for the Scottish band, Pilot. We decided choose this song because the protagonist of the history believe in the magic and the song say that you shouldn't stop to believe.

  1. Too little, too late.
    Procrastination, like crime, never pays: You have waited too long before completing your task and you have made a few serious mistakes and not fulfilled a few instructions.
    E.g.: No still photograph was allowed for the video. The piece of music should have lyrics (vocals) and not just instrumental music. If it does not have any lyrics what is the point of posting it on Labor English Zone?
    Then you include a paragraph about a band and a song which have nothing to do with the video...
    If YouTube does not allow you to use the video for copyright reasons you should have thought about it earlier and should have started work much earlier.
    There is really no excuse whatsoever. It is a rather poor piece of work and you deserve just 3 points.

  2. teacher this is not our video

    our video ir this.

    nerea upload the video, and i send you the mail, I think I paste other video....
    this is a song for the P.E PBL

  3. I am very sorry, but this is definitely the link you sent me (I keep your e-mail as evidence). Now it is too late and your points will remain unchanged... be more careful next time. Let me insist that this is what happens when you procrastinate...

  4. A PBL is just like an exam, as important as an exam. What matters is what you submit before the deadline. Next time you must check what you send.
    Over and out!

  5. ok...
    but I sent you the e-mail, it was MY mistake not the other members of the group.
    I know that a PBL is like an exam but my computer was crazy this day,I'm sure that I copy the true link, really, but I think every time I paste a link it paste other..
    well, if you think that our group deserve this mark, you should know that i'm not agree but..
    the teacher always is right.
    bye :)
