Handout 2 (Social Networking)
Intermediate, B2 level
Read for gist (skim) and for specific and detailed information (scan) in the context of online friendship.
Improve their speaking skill in the context of online friendship and social network sites.
Procedure (36-49 minutes)
I intend to provide a short film which shows that some people are applying their smartphones and social networks in the warm-up phase in order to make them guess about the topic and provide the context before pre-reading phase.
Pre-teaching vocabulary: I intend to elicit the vocabulary the covered in ex 1.
Get Ss to answer the questions in ex 1. I try to make it a game-like activity so that it becomes more interactive.
Get Ss to read the text and do ex 2 a&b. The students are read individually and then check with their group.
I'll do ex 3. By asking 1 or 2 questions through elicitation technique, I'll be able to take feedback. Also, by monitoring and checking their answers.
Students will do ex 4 in groups. They answer the questions and talk about their own ideas and experiences.
