The exams are just around the corner. Here are two useful tips to share with your students.
Interpret the task correctly
Anne Marie Torp, from Asker vgs., put together this popular course in 2016, and it is just as relevant today. Its main aim is to make students aware of what the exam tasks require them to do. The course includes explainations of the most frequently used instructional words and a step-by-step guide on how to interpret the exam task.
This material has been made with a 1,5-hour lesson in mind.

PS: The courses for vg1 and vg2 are identical, but the tasks and examples are different.
Revise your text
Students are likely to benefit greatly from looking through their texts several times on the exam, with a different revision focus each time. The text below is from E2, our textbook for International English, but is equally useful for vg1 students.

Good luck with your exams!
The Hate U Give (2017) is a young adult novel by Angie Thomas about a 16-year-old girl who sees a police officer kill her friend.
It has topped The New York Times best seller list for two consecutive years. Now, the film is out in Norway and we are happy to provide a teaching resource to accompany it. The author, Janniche Langseth, has chosen to focus on the film as a doorway to social issues, democracy and citizenship in the US.
