Housework across cultures
Writing a short description of your role in the family
Procedure (34-45 minutes)
First I'll show them a family picture of only the father, mother and children and then try to elicit from SS who the people in the picture are. Aftre that, I'll show them another photo with the grandparents. That will give me the opportunity to preteach family vocabulary if the SS don't know it.
I make a table of ' Find who ................ SS go round the the class and ask three people and write their names in the table. They fill in the first column about themselves. After that SS tell the class about themselves and the three people they have interviewed
SS read the text quickly and match the people in exercise 1 to the photos. After that they compare their answers with their partner's.
SS read the text again and then answer the questions in part 2 as true or false. After that they compare their answers
I'll ask the question in part 3b. In the text, the situation is about an Italian family. Is it the same for families in Turkey ?
I will them a model paragraph and they work with their partners and fill in the blanks. After that, they write similar paragraphs about themselves
