Teaching Practice 8: Health Problems
To provide clarification, review and practice of illnesses and treatments in the context of health problems and showing sympathy
To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of health problems, treatments and showing sympathy
Procedure (35-60 minutes)
The T starts the lesson with several pictures, all showing different kinds of sicknesses. After raising some curiosity, the T then starts writing their names. With repeated QAs, ICQs and CCQs, the T then delivers handouts to the Ss, who are supposed to fill in the gaps accordingly.
For further information about the topic, the Ss are going to review and drill more vocabulary. The second handouts are going to support the T to provide the form, meaning and pronunciation in a better way.
Here in this stage the T gives the third handout, which will include a gap fill exercise about showing sympathy to a sick person.
Concentrating on the phrases, the T delivers the last handout, which is going to be held with a pair or group activity.
The T asks the Ss to stand up and walk around the classroom, find someone and ask about their well-being.
