In this lesson, students talk about some interesting facts about the world and learn to write about their opinions.


Abc Reading text about UFOs

Main Aims

  • To provide product writing practice of a paragraph in the context of interesting things about the world

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of language used for cohesion in the context of interests


Warmer/Lead-in (5-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T shows a picture and asks the students why women live longer than men (which is the topic of the reading text they will have read in the first lesson). After a few responses, T says that it's a very interesting topic and that he also has some questions he doesn't know the answer to. Then T proceeds to show two pictures of a pyramid and a dinosaur and says that these are mysterious topics and asks the Ss to come up with a few other topics that they find mysterious. After some brainstorming, T writes the ideas on the board.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

T shows a paragraph that he wrote about UFOs but the words UFOs or aliens aren`t written. T asks the Ss to skim the text and try to find out what the text is about. Ss talk with their partners and discuss. T asks the Ss why they think this way and there is a brief WC discussion about it.

Productive Task(s) (10-14 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

Next, T asks the Ss to choose one of the mysterious topics they have put forward in the lead-in stage and to write a similar paragraph to answer the question they have chosen. T explains that they can use the linking words for more cohesion. After the Ss are done, Ss change papers with their partners to proofread each other's text.

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

T points to one of the linking words and asks the Ss what kind of a meaning it gives to the text. T elicits some answers and then asks the Ss to find similar structures in the reading text. After that, T shows the same text with the linking words underlined. Then, T elicits the meaning of each linking word and clarifies form and pronunciation by drilling and highlighting.

Feedback and Error Correction (8-10 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

Ss stand up and stick their paragraphs around the class (the front of the class). T asks the Ss to go and read each other's writing and choose the most interesting text. Meanwhile, T also reads the texts to spot errors and then write them on the board (at least 5 sentences). Then Ss work in pairs to correct the mistakes and come to the board for correction.
