Teaching Practice 6
To provide clarification and practice of the phrases about success in the context of successful people
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation about success
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
Teacher shows a video on Youtube about successful people. Then T asks the question: 'What do these people have in common?' T elicits the word success from the students. Then T asks students to talk to each other and come up with two successful people and what they're successful for in pairs. Afterwards, T nominates some students to tell the whole class about these people.
T hands out the HO1. Students will fill in the gaps with the words in the box. They will work in pairs. This HO will elicit the meaning from the students. After the students are done, T will group them again, and have them check their answers. T will answer questions if there are any. Then, T will hand out HO2. Again, in pairs, students will fill in the gaps. Afterwards, T will hand out the answer key.
T will begin this stage by writing all of the new vocabulary on the board. T will clarify the meaning once more with CCQs, if the students seem to have problems. Then, T will go on to explain the form, word type, prepositions to use with them and so on. T will drill the pronunciation of the words.
T will hand out HO3 and ask them to fill it in by using the vocabulary they learned in the class. Before writing, they are going to discuss the possible answers. The topic is 'The best way to be successful in an English class''. After the discussion, students will fill the HO in. T will closely monitor this process because it focuses on accuracy. T answers questions if there are any. After the exercise, T will regroup the sts and have them check each others' answers.
Now that the students have done the exercise for accuracy, they have to use the target language fluently. T will write some questions on the board for the students to discuss. The students will stand up and mingle with each other during this exercise. The aim is to have everybody talk to each other if there's time. T will monitor the class while they are speaking. If there's time, T will help them with some problems they faced during the activity by writing them on the board and going over them. The questions are: Who is the most successful person you know? Why is that person successful? What has been your greatest success? Do you think most people fail before they succeed?
