To provide gist and specific information listening practice using a text about Holiday
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of traveling and holidays
Procedure (35-44 minutes)
1) I will write on the board San Francisco and I will project the pictures on page. 62 and 63. I will ask the students what do they know about San Francisco. - Where is it ? In which country ? etc. Students are supposed to know information about San Francisco because it will be discussed in the lesson that precedes my TP.
Having the same pictures from pages 62 and 63 on the WB, I will have printouts of the words from exercise 4-b: A prison, a cable, a bridge, a park, an island, tourists , boats on the WB and I will ask the students to find these things in the pictures and I will arrange the words under the pictures in the FB
I will give the students handouts of some words from the listening and I will ask the students to work in pairs and match the words to their definitions. The aim of this task is to prepare the students for the listening
I will ask the students to listen to the recording and put photos A - D in the order. Which place did Rachel talk about first, second, third and fourth. I will play the recording. I will ask the students to peer check. then I will write the answer on the WB
Students will listen to the recording and have to do ex. 5 in page 62 Students have to match the activities that Rachel talks about to three places ( either Golden Gate Park (G), Nob Hill (N), Fisherman's Wharf (F).
I will have pictures of holiday destinations glued on the walls of the class. I will divide the students into 3 or 4 groups ( depending on how many students are there) and I will ask them to walk around the class and observe the pictures. Talk about the things they see in the picture, if they would like to travel there and what would they do there. I will ask them to use the words they have learned and practiced during the previous session of vocabulary. ( During this period I will have the vocabulary displayed on the WB to help the students ) When the students are done, I will ask them to get back to their seats and write 2 sentences about their favorite destination out of the 5 picture they have seen and what are the activities they would do there.
