Teaching practice 1 Main aim: Vocab
To provide clarification of collocative verbs in the context of using transportation and travel
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of transport and travel
Procedure (45-59 minutes)
Give Ss the word search handout without the word list and ask them to find as many words related to travel in a given time frame before providing them with the answer key and see who got the most.
I will ask Ss about how they travel around Istanbul to get them talking about transportation. Then I will provide them with ex 1. The Ss will discuss in pairs, answering the questions, Ending with some general whole class feedback and finding out if they think that Istanbul is an easy city for tourists to travel around in.
I will ask the Ss if they know anything about Edinburgh while showing them some relevant pictures on the board. I will then tell them to have a quick read of the text to tell me if they think that Edinburgh is easy to travel around.
Ss will now be asked to carefully read ex 2 in pairs and choose the correct answers. There will be 3 answer keys on the walls around the classroom where students can check their answers. Then I will deal with any questions with the whole class.
I will create a spider diagram of catch on the board and ask the class what kind of transportation they can catch and drill them. Then I will provide a hand out of a mind map of the main verbs from ex 2 and have them brainstorm in small groups what transport words can go with the verbs. They can use the Edinburgh text to help.
Ss will put their handouts on the wall and check one another's to see if they can add anything. I will then provide the answer key and deal with any questions.
If time Ss in small groups will work together to create their own tourist information guide about transport in Istanbul. They can use the Edinburgh ex to help them. Again these will be placed on the wall and Ss will decide which one is the most useful for tourists.While they are working I will monitor and make notes of any errors with the TL. If there is still time I will write these on the board and correct them with the whole class. If there is no time for writing, I will have students work in groups to compete ex 3 and take some general feedback.
