Integrated skills-reading, listening, speaking
Procedure (37-44 minutes)
Give out HO of Simpson's family tree. Show the video of Simpsons family which elicits the family members vocabulary. Ss answer as a whole class according to the family tree they see.
Show Ss the family tree on p. 119 – explain who Molly & Steve are. Divide the class into two groups – A & B – tell them to read the information & write the names of Molly & Steve’s family onto the family tree. Within the groups, put Ss in pairs. Give group A Worksheet A, & group B Worksheet B. Ss work in pairs to put the names onto the tree. Then get the pairs to check with other pairs from the same group – either monitor carefully to ensure both groups have got their ans correct – or give them their ans keys.
Get Ss to notice that they only have half the tree complete. Elicit & drill a few useful questions – e.g. Who’s Molly’s father?” Take back Worksheets A & B Regroup Ss into pairs A & B (maybe sitting back to back) – they then ask & ans questions to complete the tree. Monitor & make sure they’re using the TL - & not just saying “Who’s number 7?” – Also take notes of any errors with TL.
FB – Ss can check their trees together. Ask a few questions to check ans Ss switch papers, do peer-check, ask and ans questions, report to class
Ss are asked to write 4 names of distant relatives they have. Teacher writes a prompt on the board:"Ayse is my mother's sister-in-law" Ss stand in a form of a wheel (in 2 circles facing each other). The outer circle moves around changing partners (from the inner circe) during the game. In every new pair ss exchange their name papers and ask question:"Who is Ahmet?" The partner answers. Then the latter asks the same about his friend's name paper.
