Teaching Prac 7
To provide clarification and practice of relative clauses
To provide fluency on practising relative clauses
Procedure (38-56 minutes)
T will talk about the sleep he had last night trying to elicit the word dream which is going to be the context of the next stage's reading task.
T will give the ss a reading text HO that is prepared by the teacher. The ss will be introduced with the target language which is relative clauses. There will be the marker sentences in the text that is going to be used in the clarification stage. T will ask them to read quickly to find the most suitable title for the text. The options will be 'The Worst Dream Ever' , 'A Night with Spiders' and 'My Flatmate Emo'. The options will be easy to guess as T doesn't want to spend too much time on reading. The ss will check their answers with peers and FB will be done by WC
T will write the marker sentences that come directly from the reading text then will clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation. T will explain the differences between non defining relative clauses and definig relative clauses by providing some useful examples. Then the relative clauses that can be omitted will be explain on the WB. T will use ICQs and CCQs for the ss to have a guided discovery.
T will give a HO that is adapted from two different exercises from In and out students book. The students will check with pairs and then the fast finishers will be nominated by the teacher to write the answers on the board. Error correction -if necessary- will be done by WC.
If there's enough time for the freer practice in the end, this stage will take place. The teacher will provide the ss with a semi controlled practice. On the HO given, there will be five words with three definiton each. One of the definitions will be true and ont of the rest will be written by the imaginaiton of the learner. They won't need to know the meaning of the words. The partners will try to guess which is the right definiton for the word.
T will write 30 different famous person's names in small papers and put them in a bag. Thes students will be expected to pick one paper that has a specific name on it. They will stick them to their foreheads without looking so they wont know who they are. Then they will mingle around the classroom and explain the famous person to eachother by practising target language.
