Procedure (35-43 minutes)
T displays two different pictures from past and today. T says "I’d like you to compare and contrast the pictures and say how you think the people in the photos are feeling and why."
T gives a presentation on "Ten Ages of Christmas", focusing on the evolution of Christmas traditions. The aim is to attract the attention of the students and to get them ready for the upcoming reading exercise on The Christmas Tree.
Clarifications are done through the synonyms of the words and also through some extra information about the history of Christmas.
Ss read the text about The Christmas Tree, answer the reading comprehension questions. T checks the answers and gives WC FB.
Ss deal with the homophones. They need to change the incorrect words with the appropriate ones. They will find the words by themselves. T checks the answers and give WC FB. T also asks the students other homophones they remember. T writes down on WB.
Dealing with the homophones, Ss are now expected to write their own sentences by using the words in bold in the context of Christmas traditions. Challenge is always accepted in Stunning 9/C.........
