To provide scan and detailed reading practice in the context of an article about best and worst jobs
To provide clarification and practice of adjectives in the context of jobs
Procedure (33-51 minutes)
I show ss 4 pics and have them tell me what jobs they are. Then, they practice saying the words.
I tell ss that we are going to read sth abot Rob's jobs. They should guess which jobs were his best, worst and first job.
I tell ss that we're going to read sth about Rob. "Rob is a journalist. Do you think the money is good? Is it a lot of work? Do you think he likes his job now? I give you each a text. Read it fast and answer these 3 questions. You have 2 minutes." (3 mins) Then I want ss to check their answers with their partners. After 3 minutes, I will put the answers on the screen for ss to check their work. Next, I put ss into 4 different groups, giving each group a set of sentences to put in order. (7 mins) ss can check their work by looking at the board.
I get ss to underline all the adjectives in the text, and get a WC feedback. I show them the list of adjectives on the board and get them to match the words which are antonyms. (2 mins) We work on the pronunciations. (5 mins)
I get ss to talk about Robin's job using the vocab in the previous stage. ss stand up and find another student in class to talk about Rob's jobs.
I give out the copies of jobs and have ss talk about each one in their groups using the adjectives.
