To provide clarification of attributes in the context of Chinese Zodiac and Horoscope
To provide practice of new vocabulary and prounce it in a correct way. after all report , students can think about diffrent astrological signs.
i start the lesson with a discussion and i want them to express their opinions about the horoscope sign. with these questions : - what is the animal sign of this next year? - what is your zodiac sign? - which year did you born?
make them in groups... give instruction: I'll give them handout of their own sign ( read the texts with your friend and look up the new words in dictionary ) make them in groups: in pairs. checking : ask them are you going to do it alone?
each students read their handout loudly and if they have a problem in pronunciation i will fix it . ( tell the new words to others)
now again in pairs......express the opinions... -which are these traits do you think are true about you ? give a reason of each ( I am ...... ) -which of them are false about you?give a reason for each ( i am not .... ) /// i will give them some fixed expression for speaking and giving their opinions/////
after all report, students can think about these questions: - do these signs tell you who you are? - do you believe in these signs? - is that your personality?
