Show and Tell 3 (co-authored with Amadeu Marques & Branca Fabrício). São Paulo: Ática, 2001.
Show and Tell is a 5-volume collection of English for Brazilian children. It is designed for primary education in Brazil (Ensino Fundamental 1) and it is built on the assumption that English learning can be not only fun but also educational more broadly, helping the children reflect about cultural values and attitudes, differences and participation in the social world.
Show and Tell 3 is designed for the 4o ano of Ensino Fundamental (former 3a série) in Brazil and it contains 6 units around the following themes:
- World mail
- It’s a wonderful world
- Sharing and giving
- Planning a party
- You are what you eat
- A trip to the zoo
- Trick or treat
The work emphasizes oral practice (listening, speaking) through games, projects and other activities that foster interaction and collaboration among learners. There is also systematic work on written skills development (reading and writing) and encouragement for children to develop their own conclusions about grammar and strategies for vocabulary learning.
