A site providing examples of how to summarize the contents of a blog

Eli Terry students explore science through experiments
is the title of a piece of news I´ve found by chance.
Interesting as an example of how to write a headline on what a blog is about (column on the right)
It is also a resource for vocabulary
which might be used by my students in their reports.
It´s also interesting because it talks about a group of students and their work,
as well as the way they share it.
Have a look at the instructions for "submitting a comment"
-- Go to the SUBMIT A COMMENT section.
Do you understand them?
Has this link been useful?
What have you learnt?
Did you like the experiments?
Submit a comment here or e-mail to
if you want to write a larger report.
Enjoy your visit!

Gift of a Friend

Demi Lovato, Gift of a Friend
(Selected by Sandra Caso and Raquel Mendoza)
U.S.A., September 9, 2009
Spain, November 21, 2009
Created to promote the film Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure,
the song was Demi Lovato´s second single from her second album called Here We Go Again.
This song talks about friendship.
At this site you´ve got the lyrics.
There are some spelling mistakes.
Can you find them?
Here you´ve got a video translated into Spanish. It´s interesting that you follow it once you are familiar with the lyrics, in order to recall the English version by heart.
