Vocabulary and Speaking
Upper Intermediate level
The main aim of this lesson is to introduce new vocabulary in the context of expressing emotions.
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of talking about expressing emotions.
Procedure (43-57 minutes)
We will begin the class with a slide showing people passed-out at their desks. It's a shocking image that will garner the students attention, and I will elicit the word tired and then teach a one of the new vocabulary words exhaust/ed/ing, and then Ss will work in PW and discuss a time in their lives they felt exhausted.
I immediately will take Ss step by step through "confuse"'s verb and two adjective forms. I will highlight when we use the ed form as opposed to when we use the ing ending, and what both meanings mean. Then Ss will work in PW and discuss the differences between two sentences ("My friend is bored.", "My friend is boring."). I will monitor and make sure Ss understand the difference between ed and ing during highlighting.
Upon knowing that all Ss understand the from of all the new vocabulary, I will then move on to teaching all of the new words (ten in total) in all of their forms. I will continue to present the vocabulary through slides and elicit the forms of each words from Ss as we work together WC and learn all the new words through a combination of PPT and one short clip off of youtube.
Ss will then do a matching exercise whose aim is to ensure that all Ss understand the meaning of the vocabulary. They will work as individuals, and then in PW, and then we will check WCFB.
After Ss understand the meanings of all the new vocabulary, they will then move onto the exercise in the book that gives them practice form the verbs into adjectives, or simply using the verb as is. Ss will work alone, check in PW, and then we will check WCFB. After all Ss have the correct form, we will then move onto a small group discussion and decide if the statements are true for us or not.
Once we have mastered the TL vocabulary, we will then do a short exercise (ex. c pg. 49) where we will discuss some exceptions to the rules we just learned. ex. impress --> impressive
Ss will now move on to working in groups and using TL to discuss life experiences where they have felt emotions that we discussed in today's lesson. Ss will make their own sentences using TL and will monitor and listen for errors to correct during WCFB.
