To provide gist and scan a text about three international activities for socialising
using collocation for specific words
Procedure (42-56 minutes)
I am going to start the lesson with a simple conversation with the Ss in order to elicit the meaning of socializing. Then ask Ss to do Ex 1. They are going to tell which activity they do and which one they don't . They are asked to give rationales for this. ICQs must be clear. Check one of the students answers.
Distribute the hand out for this task. Ask Ss to work in pairs. They are going to work out a matching exercise for the meanings of : banned, ingredient, applaud, unwind, tone-deaf, a craze Check on the board.
Ex 2 ( a)I will help Ss do this exercise easily give them a handout with simple instructions. Ask them to read the first paragraph and find three activities mentioned in Ex1 . Then they associate them with countries. I must make sure that they know the meaning of associate. Give feedback Ex2 (b) I will give Ss a handout that contain a table with the three activities. They will associate the correct phrases with them. Check on the board
- I remind Ss with the three main activities, they are going to read about them. Then I will ask them to start with reading the questions. Next, they will read the rest of the article and after that they complete the sentences. I will ask pairs to exchange their sheets to check answers. I will give a clear orally feedback.
This stage is the productive one of the lesson as the students are going to discuss certain communicative questions. It needs enough time to apply perfectly, so I will give them sheets to write their responds. one sheet for each group Then they discuss the questions together Give a model answers with one group as feedback
