Listening Task + Vocab. (TP1a)
Upper-Intermediate B2 level
To practice Ss' skills of listening for gist & detailed information
To provide Ss with speaking practice in a personaized way & focus on metaphors in a student-centered way
Procedure (26-35 minutes)
T will hand out cut-out pics of the painting (on p. 42) to Ss and ask them to discuss in groups what's happening in the picture.
T runs feedback. / OR maybe no whole-class feedback as the gist listening will serve as the feedback (Source: Marijke; Lesson Plan Sample)
Listen to the audio (#1) and check if your guesses match the audio content.
Ss listen and fill in the gaps with appropriate words from the audio (CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS & ICQs NEEDED).
In groups, Ss ask and answer the Qs in part 4. For question 4, T gives them a picture of Harry Houdini (a famous magician & illusionist, born as Eric Weis). T monitors and helps in case of a breakdown. T encourages Ss to ask follow-up questions.
