TP2 - PART C - Joey Guertin
Intermediate - Evening group level
To provide gist and detailed reading in the context of a text about a millionaire.
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation with the lexis of the text.
Procedure (32-45 minutes)
T puts Ss in groups of 3 (maybe 4 for some groups if it doesn't add up). T shows 4 images of money (progressively from small amount of money and small size of paper to big sum of money and bigger size of paper) to elicit a million dollar and then elicit the person being a millionaire. Ss think of a millionaire individually and choose one in each group. Ss answer the questions and after a brief group conversation, present their millionaire for a minute.
T puts the title of the text (The millionaire with a secret) on the board in mixed words. Ss have to put the word together to get the title. T hands out the text in 3 parts to each groups (each group will get the full text in 3 parts). Ss have to read the text and explain their part of the text to each other using key words (1- dyslexia, spell, successful 2- trousers, 25000 pounds, ashamed 3- figures, ghost-writer, burst into tears).
Ss work together to put the events from exercise c in order. T instructs students to make out a life lesson from the text and present it to the class.
T separates the vocabulary for each groups. Ss work together to find the definition of the words and practice drilling pronunciation together. T walks around and assists the students with their pronunciation and definitions. Then, Ss present their words (meaning and drilling) to the class as if they were teachers.
T works with the student to complete the 5 statements. Ss discuss one point together for 3 minutes. T walks around and notes any mistakes and address some correction if there is time remaining.
