Teaching Practice 6
To provide review of 'used to' for past habits and clarification of 'be used to' and 'get used to'
To provide listening audios for gist and for detail in the context of sleep, and practice rhythm and linkings.
Procedure (45-59 minutes)
Let Ss watch the video, ask questions while they are watching like "do you think the mother can sleep well? Why?" Ask them to talk in pairs whether they have ever had sleeping problems or not and why. Elicit the anwers.
Tell students that they listen to some audios, but beforehand, they need some vocabulary. Ask Ss whether they know the words 'blinds, jet lag, haul' or not, if not clarify the meanings and write on the board, drill the words.
Show Ss the handout, say that they'll listen to three people who have problems sleeping. Ask them to listen and take notes on their HOs what their problem is and what has caused it. Let Ss listen to the first speaker, check with their partners and listen again. Do the same thing for the other two speakers. Then elicit the answers orally
Ask students to complete part c on their HO. Ss'll walk around find different three people, ask the questions and write their friend's name and answer. Give Ss 2 minutes for the activity, then elicit the answers.
Ask students to complete part 2-a. Ss'll match the highlighted phrases in sentences to their meaning. Give them one minute to complete the task, let them do pair check. Then elicit the answers and write on the board.
Ask Ss to look at the box on their HO, listen to the audio and read the clarifications in the boxes on the front and back page. After they read individually, ask CCQs (written on the the grammar analysis), elicit the rules and write on the board.
Ask students to read the sentences in part a (back page of HO), decide the sentence is right or wrong, and if wrong, correct the sentence. Re-arrange the pairs and ask them to work in pairs. When completed, ask them to check with the pair next to them. Elicit the answers and show on the board. Then ask them to complete part b with the target language with their partners. Then show the answers on the board.
Ask students to look at the "pronunciation" part. First, they'll listen to the all sentences and find out what do the signs mean. In the second listening, pause after each sentence and ask Ss repeat the sentence with rhythm and linkings. They can say the sentences twice if needed.
Tell Ss that they'll listen to three sentences and ask them to write them. And remind that they'll listen twice. While listening, pause after each sentence and let them write. After the first listening, ask them to check with their partners, then let them listen again. Then elicit the sentences.
Re-arrange the pairs. Ask them to do part d; talk to their partners, ask for and give information about the questions on their HO. Then, licit the answers.
Ss read the text and discuss about it. If time doesn't permit, I can give as an extra reading, because there some interesting informations about sleep.
