Reading skills lesson plan and Vocabulary analysis
Pre-Intermediate B1 level
Ss will be able to use some reading skills such as scanning, guessing effectively. Ss will be able to analyze, understand and produce the target vocabulary (highlighted words).
Ss will personalize the topic in post reading activity and communicate in the target language by using newly learned language.
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
Firstly, In activity 1 ss are presented with some pictures that represent annoying teenagers’ habits and a timeline that indicates the childhood, teenager (not written) and adulthood. Ss in pairs are to discuss some annoying teenager habits and come up with the time period called “teenager”. Ss share their responses.
After the discovery of the word “teenager”, T draws Ss’ attention on the pronunciation of the word (teenager). As ss are introduced with main and secondary stress, Ss are to guess the correct version of the word written in IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet). Ss, in pairs, are given the activity 2 in which some messages taken from the article are presented with leading questions. T leads Ss to discuss and guess what the article is about and the title of the article.
T hands out the article and asks Ss to read individually and label each tweet with P (parents) or T (teenagers). Later, Ss are given Activity 3 to answer some comprehension questions related to the article and check their answers with their partners.
In Activity 4, Ss firstly are expected to label each photo with the target vocabulary from the article. In the second part, some words should be matched to their explanations. Ss are encouraged to guess the meanings of the words from the article.
In activity 5, Ss are divided into groups of 4. Each group is supposed to prepare a report on an imaginary research they have conducted. The research should present the most annoying teenagers’/parents’ habits. Ss are encouraged to reflect on their experiences (Personalized). After deciding on the habits, they are to label the pie chart and prepare a short description. One or two groups are invited to present their research data to the class.
