Procedure (28-46 minutes)
-Ask a few students: "How was your day?" If no one asks me, I then say: "No one asked me." Try again, elicit response from a student. -Say: "Can I open the window. It's really warm in here." Elicit response from students. Open window.
-Read (1) on the handout. Say: "Who is Hakan? Where is he? What is he?" (Oxford, student) -Say: "Is Hakan Turkish? Does he speak English? So, Hakan is bilingual." -Write bilingual on board. "Hakan speaks English and Turkish, so he is bilingual. He speaks two language." CCQ: "I speak English and German. Am I bilingual?" -Look at the first picture. "Who are the people? Where is Hakan? What time of day is it?" Elicit information from students based on picture.
-Say, "Look at picture two and picture three with your partner. Talk about: 'Who is in the photo?' 'Where is the photo?' 'What time of day is it?'" -Monitor while the ss do the exercise.
-Nominate pairs to answer the questions concerning the photos. Have class agree on the heading for each photo (likely: Home, School, Cafe), and write them on the board.
-Say, "Match the lines in A to a picture. Which picture goes with each line? Who is saying the line?" -Monitor as they do it, note which are new/difficult.
-Go over/explain the lines that were difficult for students. If one knows, elicit from that student. -Act out lines, model, drill, back-chain.
-Say, "Match Line A with Line B with your partner." -Monitor, pick up points.
-Go over/explain the rejoinders that were difficult for the students. If one knows, elicit from them. -Act out, model, drill, back-chain. -Listen to the tape and have them check answers with their partners.
-Have the ss practice the prompts in pairs. -Do an example with one student to show how it's done. -Monitor as they do it. -If they finish early, switch partners.
-Address any problems noticed during monitoring (stress, pronunciation, etc). -Model, drill, back-chain if necessary.
-Hand each student a prompt. -Say, "You will come up to the front and say your prompt to another student. They will say the response. Then, go to another student. Speak to everyone." -Monitor.
-Address any problems/mistakes noticed during activity. -Model, drill, back-chain as needed.
-Say, "Now, you will create your own dialogues with your partner. I will give some information, and you will continue the dialogue with these facts. You can write some notes, then practice the dialogue with your partner." -Do example with one student. -Tell each pair who/what they are. -Monitor
