Reading and Speaking
To provide gist reading practice using a text about emotions
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of emotions
Procedure (31-39 minutes)
As my today's topic is talking about the emotions, I decided that my lead-in will talk about the emotions that can be expressed by watching some sports activities, in particulary football game. I will ask the ss what kind of emotions they can express while watching the game etc.
Before the reading, I will first pre-teach some new vocabulary for a better understanding of the text. After this stage, I will explain the next task (reading) by giving clear instructions.
In this stage, ss will focus on a receptive skill which is reading. The while-reading activity is consisting of three activities. In the first activity, the ss are reading the text which is talking about the emotions, they will try to understand the gist. The reading will be done alone and a time limit will be set up (max. 5 min.). After they achieve the first task, ss will now work in pairs in order to guess which kind of emotions are shown on the pictures. The answers will be checked between different pairs. (O/C, F/B). Ss will also try to explain why people are expressing some particular emotions and when. In the next stage, they will still work in pairs, try to match and recognize the explained emotions from the text, with the proposed pictures above. The answers will be checked between pairs (O/C, F/B).
After the reading activity, ss will try to apply what they learned by practicing some speaking activity. They will do this exercise in pairs. A time limit will be set up (5 min). Each ss will tell to his/her partner when was the last time that they felt some kind of emotion. They will tell to each-other, about an emotional situation frome their lives. After that, ss will now try to remember and to describe their partner's story to the class.
