Accuracy in semi-controlled and freer speaking
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
-I would like it if everyone only spoke english in this lesson (hmmmm...) ...is that possible -Ask if anyone remembers my name > write name on board -If I can remember all of your names, I would be very happy -How was everyones weekend? Would anyone like to share what they did....
-Refer back to the previous lesson and ask what they think about working for a newspaper > if anyone has or still does? -Ask Ss what they think it will be like to be a journalist > Elicit a few ideas -Ask Ss if they even know what a journalist is...? > Elicit > "a person who writes and works for the news"
-Tell Ss they are going to find out a bit more about what they think about journalism. -Put the Ss into pairs (PW) > Student A & Student B and tell them to ask 5 questions & answer 5 questions on the questionnaire & take short notes of their partner's answers -BEFORE they start, drill the question "Would you like to be a journalist?" > make sure pronunciation of "would you" is natural -Time limit: 5minutes -ICQ- Are we going to work alone? Are we going to take brief notes of partners? How long have you got? -Give HO -Ss work together to ask & answer the questions & share their ideas about journalism -Monitor -Take brief WC FB (don't spend much time as it comes up later)
-Elicit from Ss what all the questions have in common - "would" -Make 3 columns on W/B and use as headings: hypothetical future, advice/suggestions & like/love/prefer -Elicit the meaning of "Hypothetical" by taking out 1000 lira visual and ask what is this? Is it true? -CCQ- So its real? (No its unreal), So I would like to have this to but its not possible? (Yes) > Act out "I would love to fly", "If I were rich, I would buy a porche"-but ...... Get Ss to elicit -So this is called hypothetical "something unreal/imaginary" -Ask the Ss which meaning Question1 has -Re-group Ss according to colour of paper -GW to match the other questions with their meaning/use (3mins) -Give instructions that they will now do an activity > When they think they have all the answers 1 person from each group to get up and put 1 Question up at a time and then rotate to the next person until all their questions are up on the WB (3mins) -ICQ > Is everyone going to come up to the board at once? (No) How many questions at a time? (1) -Give HO (cut outs) for Ss to place them in column on WB where they think is right -WC FB > check their answers are correct -Explain to Ss the meanings of each way they can use would (hypothetical future: to give an opinion about an unreal situation, to ask for and offer advice or suggestions, to express preferences with like/love/prefer etc.)
-Who knows the difference between would and had? > Elicit from Ss -Write on WB the following sentences and elicit the difference -Would: something we do/don't want to happen but hasn't happened >Eg; I would cook dinner when my father came home -Had: action finished in the past and had result in the past >Eg; I had cooked dinner, when my father came home -CCQ -Explain that ['d] can either mean would or had (She'd, He'd, I'd) -Give instructions for Ss to work in pairs PW to replace ['d] with would or had in ex1 > circle what they think is the correct answer -Give HO and time limit of 3mins -Monitor -WC FB and give answers
-Before lesson, have answer keys on the walls for Ss to check answers after activity -Tell Ss the next HO is a conversation between two people >A & B -Ss to work in pairs PW to complete the gaps in ex2 with the appropriate verb >tell Ss to complete quickly -Monitor -Tell them to get up and check answers
-Regroup Ss - tell them to find a new partner (1xA & 1xB) -Ss to compare answers to the questions they answered in the Questionnaire in Stage 2 -Get Ss to TELL each other about their partner's ideas about journalism & find out if any Ss had similar ideas. > Discuss in groups on your table -Monitor for use of TL - DONT INTERFERE >(make notes of any errors) -Take FB on what they found out about each other & anything they had in common (For eg; two Ss would like to work in America)
-T to put some errors on WB that was noted earlier -Ss to correct them WC FB
