Listening + Oral Practice on the Topic (Post Listening)
Elementary A1 & A2 level
By the end of the lesson, learners will have practiced their listening for gist, detailed comprehension, and specific information in the context of film industry and cinema
By the end of the lesson, learners will have had oral practice on the tpoic of film & cinema to react to the audio, develop fluency, & have a chance to personalize the topic
Procedure (20-32 minutes)
Ss unscramble the letters on the board to make the word "cinema". Then, they see 3 photos on the screen (a Turkish film, a Hollywood film, & a Bollywood film). They say where the film was made (Turkey, Hollywood, Bollywood). They may not know the word Bollywood. So they get familiar with it before the listening.
Vocab items like "film industry", "majority" + CCQs. To avoid giving too many handouts and extracts to Ss (they will see enough of HOs and extracts during the lesson), 2 Qs are put on the board and Ss are asked to ask & answer them in groups. They are put into BANANA, APPLE, ORANGE, WATERMELON, & STRAWBERRY groups. The 2 questions are: 1. How often do you go to the cinema? Every week? Every month? 2. What films do you like? Turkish films? Hollywood films? Bollywood films? [Ss are given sample ANSEWRS/SENTENCES]. T runs open class FB. T monitors closely (back-monitoring, squatting, UNOBTRUSIVELY/NOT JOINING THEIR TALK).
#1 Ss are given an HO with a gist question on it. Ss listen to audio 2.17 from the course book Global Elementary. They should choose between a or b. They check their answers in groups. Then, there is WC FB. Monitoring (WHILE-LISTENING): distant/no walking/no getting close to them/ sitting somewhere silently. Monitoring (CHECKING IN GROUPS): walking around. #2 Ss listen to the same audio again for detailed info. There are 4 T/F statements.This time they also see the PIE CHART on the board as they listen, because they need the chart to be able to answer items 2, 3, & 4. Ss check answers in groups (grouping according to the color of the HOs). T gives them the script/monitors closely but unobtrusively. T runs FB.
Ss are given a copy of the pie chart with gaps related to percentages of film production around the world. T gives instructions: Listen only one time and put a number in the gap. ICQ: So what do you write in the gap? Ss: NUMBERS. Ss check in groups. T shows the script on the board. Then a student comes to the board and others help him fill in the gaps.
Ss are given an HO. There are 4 Qs on it. Some adaptations have been added to the original sentences. They ask and answer the questions in (the same) groups. T monitors closely, intervening only when he feels it is necessary to do so (long idle moments, communication breakdown, etc. )
