To provide scan, detailed and inference reading practice using a text about unusual festivals in the context of big events
To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation about the unusual festivals in the context of big events
Procedure (34-42 minutes)
I will begin my lesson by writing the names of four famous festivals on the WB and ask students two questions to draw their attention to the lesson. "Which food does each festival centre around?" "Can you guess what happens in these festivals?" After asking these questions, I wil ask the students to work in pairs. When they are done, I will take feedback from a few students.
When the students are done with speaking activity, I will distribute a matching activity to teach new vocabulary..Before we begin with the text, we will dwell on the vocabulary. I will teach the words according to MFP sequence. CCQs;"Is it a verb or a noun?", (vanish) “Does it mean disappearing suddenly?” (vanish) “Does it mean a very good copy?” (replica) “Do I need to cut into a wood to make a carving?” (carving) “Does it mean ordinary?” (intricate)
When the new words are clear for students, I will project four pictures on the WB. The students will do a brainstorm activity in pairs and tell each other their ideas about the festivals. I will ask: "What kind of festival is it?" "How do people celebrate them?" After that, I will nominate the students as 1, 2, 3 and 4. I will give a piece of text to each group. They will do a jigsaw reading.and this exercise will be for gist reading. Each group will read a different paragraph of the whole text and check their ideas. When they are done with reading, they will work in groups and tell each other what happens in these festivals. they will also answer the questions. "What kind of festival is it?" "How do people celebrate them?" During the activity, I will monitor the students and take notes. After this speaking activity, I will give them a true-false exercise.This exercise will be for reading for specific information. In exercise 3, students will read and guess the meaning of the words from the texts. This exercise will be for inference reading.
In this stage, I will ask students some questions to set up a speaking activity. "Which festival would you like to go to? Why?" "Which festival would you avoid? Why?" "Which festival do you think is a waste of time and unnecesssary? Why?" "Which one is the most interesting? why?" I will put them in pairs start a conversation between the students. While they speak, I will monitor them and take notes about their mistakes. Later, we will do error correction.
