To provide scan reading practice using a text about nightmare jobs in the context of jobs
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of jobs
Procedure (33-45 minutes)
First, I will ask just two or three students to tell me about their jobs and bad experiences. Then, I will give them the HOs , and ask them to match the words with definitions in pair. ICQ: Are you going to do it alone?Are you going to speak? Do you need a pen? I will write the answers on the board and ask them to make sentences with the words.
First, I will show pictures of drowning and falling. I will ask what happens if we see them when we're sleeping and I elicit the word "nightmare". I will write "nightmare jobs" on the board and I will tell them that they are going to read about people talking about nightmare jobs and I will ask them to guess their jobs. There are three people talking about their jobs in the article, I will cut the stories and I will give each student a different story. I'll give them 3 minutes to read alone and then I will ask them to talk about the person in groups of three and choose who had the worst nightmare job. After that, I will pre-teach the words " disgusting, ask for permission, and nasty".I will teach "disgusting" through a story, "ask for permission" with a picture and "nasty" by miming and explaining. CCQs: disgusting: Is it a positive adj. or negative ? Am I happy? Nasty: Do I feel relaxed? ask for permission: Is it a good action or bad? does it just happen in schools? I will give them the HOs of the complete text, then they should read and complete the sentences with the words. I will write the answers on the board.
I will ask students to stand up and talk to as many people as they can for five minutes. Then, I will ask them to sit in groups and talk about their friends. I'll get feedback .
