So then, following a lot of requests to get open-source versions of templates and pics for the "Scene it!" formats I've been playing around with, I'm happy to announce that... here they are!
Scene it at the book store (PDF TG/activity suggestions version)
Scene it - February goals (PDF TG/activity suggestions version)
Scene it with frozen foods (PDF TG/activity suggestions version)
Scene it on the pub wall (PDF TG/activity suggestions version)
Scene it at the stadium (PDF TG/activity suggestions version)
Scene it with property for lease (PDF TG/activity suggestions version)
Now, in addition to that stuff, I've gone to all sorts of trouble to put together a bunch of well-formatted pics (which I've been taking whilst out and about in my home town of Geelong, Australia) for you to think about using with your own materials and activities.
I grant you full permission to download, use and/or adapt (including for any commercial use) any of these images, so long as you clearly attribute them to me (Jason Renshaw) and feature a link of some sort back to this post and blog.
Here is the file with 37 pictures (my first "batch" as it were):
Scene it! Picture gallery A (MS Word)
It's a big file and may take some time to download and open, because I've formatted the pictures to be reasonably high quality -- allowing you to resize them in various ways.
Beyond the request for attribution (if you decide to use anything here), I have another hope... Make some great material and teaching ideas of your own. Blog about them. Share them, using open source formats so that other teachers can customise them to their own contexts and needs, and then (hopefully) disseminate even further. Open source educational materials and ideas are an enormously empowering movement -- one I want to help foster and promote much more.
Have fun with "Scene it!"
