Procedure (39-44 minutes)
As students are arriving, pass out handout from workbook page 50. Write words on the WB to help pre-teach vocabulary that will be helpful for later in the lesson: (Fortune, Eternal, Statue, Youth, Wealth, Doubt, Apparently) Elicit definitions and drill briefly for pronunciation. T to read the two texts on the handout and discuss. 1) What positive effects do they suggest these places can have on visitors? 2) What do you think of these claims? Quick ask of the students to personalize the topic: Are there any places in Turkey like this?
Listening Ex: 1 (1.58-1.59) Pair off students counting in Ones/Twos. Explain that they need to listen for what kind of attitude the speakers have. Have them listen to two both tracks, pausing between each to discuss with their partner. Write FB on WB.
Explain to Ss that they will be listening for specific arguments from the speakers as to WHY they feel they way they do about the two places and to make a mark on the correct argument. Play both clips again for Ss (1.58 and 1.59). When finished, take FB from Ss on board in brief note form.
Instruct students to complete LF Ex: 1 and that we will listen to the audio after to check answers. Play each sentence from audio clip (1.60) and have Ss practice saying them with the same intonation. Drill each phrase a few times during the pause.
Instruct Ss to choose a new partner that they have not worked with today. Read aloud both options in the "Speaking" component and explain that they can choose A or B. For those who choose option A, provide copy of page 45. Monitor and take FB verbally: What were their opinions?
