Intermediate B2 level
To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a lesson attempting to reinforce the TP vocab both/neither.
To provide gist and deduction reading practice using a text about identical twins.
Procedure (45-59 minutes)
To get students interested in American popular history, a series of conversation questions will be asked about American Presidents.
The photos of the two American Presidents Lincoln and Kennedy will be shown to Ss and a series of focus questions will be asked: Do you know which American Presidents have been assassinated? Do they have anything in common? Where they assassinated by men or women? etc.
Task 1 information gap will commence. Students will be put in pairs and begin reading their respective text, while trying to guess the missing words. Then Ss will check with their partner if their guesses were accurate and correct any mistakes.
The Ss will be divided in groups and the photos of several identical twins will be given to them. Between the group they'll have to work out any differences they see.
The different groups will then tell the rest of the class of any differences they noticed.
Students will be given the next task, where they read a short text and come up with an appropriate heading.
During the reading task, Ss will have to negotiate with other groups on the actual headings which the teacher has randomly given to each group. By negotiating and figuring out who has the title they're needing, Ss will get to practice the TP language.
