Crime and Punishment
Upper Intermediate level
Eliciting Lexis and providing students with speaking practice
Procedure (28-44 minutes)
I will ask students to recall Michael's lesson about the villains, and what kind of person they are. With the help of some pictures, I will introduce the context of the lesson today.
I will elicit 8 new words regarding crimes and write them on the W/B. I will also elicit the verb and noun(person) forms of the words learned. Phonology - I will go through major stresses on the words.
Students will be handed out with short newspaper clips and by scan reading, they will match the words they have learned with the stories.
The students will be given H/O with the crimes they have learned, numbered from 1 to 8. They will be paired or will be in small groups, discussing the seriousness of the crimes by putting them in order. They might not be in concensus at the end of the session.
I will hand out the exercise on the Teacher's Book, Straight Forward Upper Int. p:245 and ask them to work in groups to get the 4 stories which are jumbled, in a correct order. If I am running out of time I will indicate the first parts of the stories and also tell them each story is made up of 5 parts. When the stories are put in order, W/C discusses if answers are correct and which one is the most stupid one.
