Show and Tell 4 (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 4 is designed for the 5o ano of Ensino Fundamental (former 4a série) in Brazil and it contains 6 units around the following themes:
- Valentine’s Day
- Rules and routines
- Our body needs exercise
- Plants are our partners
- Our planet, our home
- Places around town
- Past and present
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. Out of print.
