Plan 8 (Newby, M)
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of ordering food
To provide review about language of suggestion in the context of ordering food
Procedure (40-50 minutes)
-Ss, having been introduced to the context of weekend activities, T elicits the idea of ordering in a restaurant as one the weekend activity people do. -T asks Ss about their favorite food. -T asks Ss if they eat or don't eat some type of food because of their beliefs or diets.
-T tells Ss that they are about to do a role-play; therefore, they will need to create their own menus for each group. (key words for food will be given, if needed) -T lets Ss know that everybody is going to get to become waiters/waitresses, and the customers. -T demonstrates one sample for that role-play, so Ss have an idea about how it's going to be played.
-T quickly reviews about the language of suggestion to remind Ss what they have learned in the previous lesson. -T ask a CCQ to Ss: "you are in a restaurant. do you want to be polite when ordering, or do you want to be rude?" so now it's up to Ss to use the language of suggestion or not.
-T puts Ss in groups of 3-4. -T makes sure everyone sits as if they are in a restaurant to create a restaurant ambiance. -T makes sure everyone knows their roles and whose turn it's going to be.(waiters/waitresses, customers) -T starts the role-play. -T monitors and does hot error corrections as the activity goes on.
-Having heard the Ss and taken notes about their performance, T writes errors on the board so everybody can see it. -T provides feedback on the Ss orally. (major or minor mistakes, good stuff they have achieved etc.)
