Brand new (or not) start: UNIT 1

Wow! A new course is coming!


          Well, in fact it IS HERE!
   A new adventure in thought!

So you can begin with more strength, here you have, dear pupils, the contents of our 

                           UNIT 1

Procrastination revisited

I tend to think it's worth insisting on this particular topic:

      Please, pleeeeeeeeaase...
                              don't procrastinate!

Just to clarify some ideas about it, have a look at this videos. The first one -in Spanish- is also the simpliest: 



Here are two others very interesting videos (in English but subtitled):





And there is even a musical version you may find amusing: 



Finally, THIS FRAGMENT from the ancient TV show Redes offers a clear, useful approach to this topic.

"ANIMAL FARM", a political proposal

In order to accomplish an old promise, to discuss some political topics which otherwise will be missing in our course, and even to fulfill some students’ anxiety (or boredom!), I’d like to propose a final online task to my pupils of 1º de bachillerato
This work should be considered as an optional one. Its quality or merits won’t have any other effect but increasing your marks, concretely up to 1’5 points in the global assessment of the third term. (FYI: This is a maximum, for the best works; an average work would add from +0’5 up to +1 points.)
The deadline is June 3rd.
The task is about the short novel Animal Farm, by George Orwell. Animal Farm makes easy, enjoyable and interesting reading, and you won't regret doing it. Instead of a conventional written work, I’ve thought of a rather long questionnaire followed by a set of questions to be answered shortly or –more commonly- extensively.

There are a lot of editions of this famous novel; to standardize some of your answers or your quotations, it is important to use (or at least to refer your quotes to) the same edition, so let’s accept the following –in 60 pages- as our reference edition:
