Eng for Med. Unit 3 Basic Principles in Medicine. 3.4
To provide detailed listening practice using a text about anatomical positions in the context of medical lecture
To provide note-taking practice and ask others for help with 'gaps' in the notes.
Procedure (30-50 minutes)
Ask Ss "Can anyone recall what the lecture was about last week (lesson 3.2)?" Show the pictures from the book (page 24). (Answer: physiology - the functioning of the healthy body) 3.4 A - Ask Ss to make a list of points from the lecture in lesson 3.2. This stage is important as the lecture they will listen to first talks about last week's lecture on physiology and links it to today's lecture (which is often what happens in normal lectures). So Ss must have last week's lecture in their minds as well as what they think this week's lecture is about.
3.4 A Tell Ss "We are going to extend this topic in today's lecture. In the last hour, you researched a topic. 3.4 A - What is the lecturer going to talk about today? (Clue: you researched it in Lesson 3.3). (Answer: anatomical positions and movement - anatomy = the science of structure of the body and the relationship of those structures to each other)
3.4 A. Ss listen to Part 1 of the lecture and check their predictions/ideas. (0:49min)
3.4 B 1. Ss look at 'lecture slide' 1 on page 27. "What is shown on slide 1?" 2. Ss look at 'lecture slide 2 on page 27. "What is shown on slide 2?" 3. What is a good way to make notes from this lecture? Ss discuss in pairs their ideas. Tell Ss to prepare their notebooks.
3.4 C. Ss listen to Part 2 of the lecture and make notes. (1:00min) After the lecture (played only once) Ss ask each other what they wrote and ask them for any clarification and additional information.
3.4 D. 1. Ss look at lecture slides 3 and 4 on page 27. Discuss in pairs what they think will be in Part 3 of the lecture. Practice the pronunciation of any words they might be unfamiliar with.
3.4 D. Ss listen to Part 3 of the lecture and check their ideas and take notes. Ss ask their peers for any information that they're missing. This part is very long. They may want to hear it again for practice. But it would be better for them to ask their peers to check information than to listen to it again (also time constraint).
3.4 E. Tell Ss to listen to the final part (Part 4) of the lecture and answer the question in E. "What other purpose do the anatomical planes serve?" NB: Ss may not know the word 'recap' which is a summary at the end that repeats main points. (recapitulation=review)
There isn't time to finish this lesson. Tell Ss they will complete the lesson the following week. &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&
