The Mind - Analyse the Results of a Quiz
Upper Intermediate level
Reading Listening Vocabulary
Procedure (32-48 minutes)
I will ask students to recall what they have discussed in John's lesson about genders and brain functions. I will let them know today's topic and give them H/O ''Brain Facts''. I will let them read for 1 minute and ask what they think about it. I will make sure they understood that the brain is in two halves, ask them if they think they are right or left brained, why?
I will put students in pairs, preferably male/female, and will give quiz A to one of the student and quiz B to the partner. I will make them sit facing each other, so that they do not see each other's quiz questions. I will elicit words which might be unknown to them i.e. judging - task - intuition - visualise - jump around (in a magazine or news-paper) One group will use the quiz to interview the other, and vice versa, not telling each other the results.
Prior to listening I will elicit some of the words which I think they may have problems understanding. i.e.linear thinking / logical thinking / verbal skills / the big picture
I will give them H/O ex 2a to mark L for left sided and R for right sided brain specifications. I will play the record. W/C we will discuss and decide what features left and right brained people have.
With the H/O ''Useful Language'' phrases they already have, I will ask them to use the phrases to explain their partners the results of his/her quiz.
The students will have further discussions related to Ex4 in small groups using ''Useful Language''. I will ask for FB to be discussed W/C.
