Teaching Practice 7
To provide clarification, review and practice of "what and where" questions in the context of people
To provide accuracy speaking practice using WH-questions in the context of people
Procedure (34-45 minutes)
T projects pictures on the WB. In pairs, T ask Ss to discuss and answer the following: “What are their jobs?” “Where do they work?” T discusses with WC. Ss are put in pairs to encourage them to interact in English.
Gist listening exercise: T writes "Where does she work?" on the WB. T plays an audio recording and check with WC after that. Detailed listening exercise: T distributes HO and ask Ss to listen in detail and circle the correct answers. In pairs, T ask Ss to check answer with their partner. T checks with WC.
T projects the text from the audio recording on WB. WH-questions are removed from the text to draw students' attention to the target language. T asks Ss in pairs to fill in the gaps. T asks a few of them to come up and write the answers in on the WB.
T explains meaning, form and pronunciation to WC. T elicits Ss to come up with WH- questions. Write on WB: "Where" and "What" - When do we use them? Elicit Ss for examples using "Where": Where do you live? Where is she from? Where does he work? What is her name? What is her favourite colour? (If no answer, remind Ss about previous audio recording) Show slide: There are two ways of asking, WHERE/WHAT + DO/DOES + SUBJECT + VERB OR WHERE/WHAT + BE + SUBJECT E.g. Where does she work? Where = Question does = Do/Does she = Subject work = Verb Teach contractions: What is = What's Where is = Where's How about: Where are = Where're Is this correct? No Where am I = Where'am Is this correct? No
In pairs, Ss have to re-arrange the words in the correct order (Exercise 1). T will write 1 to 6 on the WB and get Ss to come up to write the answers. T goes through it with the WC. T will ask stronger students to help the weaker ones if they finish early. T will move one S from one end to the other to make a new pair. T group Ss in new pairs. For exercise 2, SS have to fill in the gaps. Ss practice writing questions as well as answers. T distributes HO. T check answer with WC. Working in pairs allows the stronger Ss to help the weaker ones. This motivates them and increases STT.
Ss have to interview their classmates in the classroom. They have to come up with three or four questions in pairs using the word/phrases on the slides. They have to use "what" and "where" questions. Ss will mingle and ask the questions to their classmates. They have to write their answers on the HO as well. T will go around and monitor Ss. T will ask a few Ss to share their interviews.
