TP 1A Assessed Reading Lesson
Main Aim: To give Ss practice in reading for specific information and detail through the context of people living in new countries-expats.
Speaking, common verb-noun collocations.
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
WC line up exercise based on distance travelled to class today. Gs will be made of 4 -5 according to line.
GW: Ss will be presented with a matching pair exercise of collocations. A competitive element will be added so it is a race in order to energise the groups. Bonus points will then be awarded for the team that comes up with the most additional collocations. İf time permits, we will do an L exercise where Ss will write down the collocations used in the material.
With WC, I will elicit the meanings of expat, similar, different, typically and retired, which occur in the text and are key words. Through guided discovery, I will explore two or three cultural concepts covered in the texts. Mexican American food, The BBC and Liverpool, time permitting. GW in the groups Ss will read through the text together. I will elicit answers from different groups about where people are from, where they moved and whether or not they are happy. I will then present section 2 as a HO to each team for Ss to complete a gap fill exercise.
WC will be told to put away source material. . Two groups will be given Sandra and two Carl and Anna and there will be a challenge set about how much Ss can remember. Bonus points will be given for correct use of collocations and minus points for any wrong ones.
PW/GW Ss will talk about whether they would like to live in a different place. They should say where they would like to go and why. Selected Ss will report back about their findings from their team mates.
