Procedure (49-59 minutes)
I will show SS different pictures of people doing their jobs on PPT - they will guess the jobs and then I will elicit what today's lesson is about.
- I will display different types of jobs on PPT and elicit the meanings from SS - I will ask the SS the spelling of each job and explain that these are nouns and require "a" or "an" in front of each job - i will drill each word so SS know the correct pronunciation. - I will write down the words on the board - SS will write down the new vocabulary in their notebooks and their meanings if necessary. The words are: 1. a chef/cook 2. a vet 3. a pilot 4. a flight attendant 4. a taxi driver 5. a receptionist 6. a waiter/watress 7. a lawyer 9. a dentist 10. journalist
I will instruct SS to open their Student books to p. 22 and we will be starting Lesson 3B. - SS will do the vocabulary activity of rearranging the words to spell them properly - I will clearly give instructions with ICQ's - what are we doing? where are we writing the words? ---- - Students will then ask one another what types of jobs they do. - They will answer 3 questions: their job title, where they work, what they do
- I will instruct students to look at Exercise #2 - the listening activity - They will listen to a game show called "His job, her job" - A group of 3 people will ask Wayne and his wife Tanya about their jobs - SS will write either W or T next to the questions - I will explain what W is for and T - write it on IWB - A lot of ICQs are needed here - what are we writing and where? - SS will guess what their jobs are - They will listen to the last part of the listening task and this will reveal their jobs.
- I will review present simple rules with SS - I will introduce using the present simple in question form - I will refer SS to p. 128 so they can see the table - I will do some practice with them on IA - SS will complete Ex. 3 a in their books by filling in the blanks - I will demonstrate the first one so they know how to do it, then they will do it on their own, - I will use ICQs to ensure they understand the task.
- I will rearrange students so they are sitting with different people. (blue, green, yellow, red) - SS will turn to page 154 and choose jobs from the vocabulary bank, then they will choose a job and other students in their group will ask questions to guess the job. - They will use the present simple in question form for this activity. - I will demonstrate the first one with a student.
