upper intermediate level
To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about customers placing order at a copy shop. in the context of are you procrastinator or well orgonized person
To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of what kind of person are you?
Procedure (42-54 minutes)
Show the students a video about the life of a procrastinator in order to put them in the context of the lesson. Ask the students what was the video about. Try to elicit some words or expressions like "disorganized, lazy, last minute etc."
A list of questions will be shown on the white broad (target language), the students should guess the meaning of these expressions, by giving examples, or expanding the expression itself.
In small groups, students will get separate parts of each conversation (there are three conversations) which they'll put it in right order. Once they finish they will be asked to check each-others' work. Then, they'll be asked to put the three major parts in the right order.
Once the students finish the previous task, they will get the whole conversation to read (individually), and write the meaning of the expressions that they saw at the pre-reading task, but this time in their own way, then they discuss their answers with their friends. This activity will be followed by an other one, where the students will be asked to tick the right answer based on the previous survey, and explain their choices. Before having the WC FB, students will compare their answers with their friends and give their reasons.
A list containing some questions (three questions), will be projected on the WB. Students in pairs will discuss them and tell each other about themselves (what kind of persons they are). Nominate some students to talk about their partners.
