Main Aims

  • To provide product writing practice of an informative paragraph in the context of customs at home and abroad

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a discussion in the context of about customs around the world


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

I will greet students and introduce them with the word ''customs''. I will show a video clip of customs around the world and ask them to discuss if they can identify any particular customs from their own country. I will ask them to share each other's stories with the class.

Exposure (10-12 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

I will get Ss to read the text in exercise 1. I will ask them if they are familiar with the phrases written in bold in the text as they will use these phrases to form new sentences in the following tasks.They will tick the sentences that they think apply to their home country and cross the ones that they think that don't. They will then work in pairs to compare their answers. We will run a WBFB after that task and have a brief discussion on what they thought about the customs.

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

I will highlight the phrases from the previous task by getting student to categorize them under 3 different sections. (generalization, acceptable and unacceptable). I will ask Ss to compare their answers and then run WCFB.

Productive Task(s) (18-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

I will now start the main writing task by getting Ss to look at the answers they gave in exercise 1 and re-write the customs they crossed out by using the same phrases. Ss will run a pair check and compare their answers with each other, they will then read out one sentence for WCFB. I will then move on to the last writing task and Ss will be instructed to combine the phrases and the prompts from 3b to form sentences. they will write their sentences and then pin them up on WB for each other to read. I will have a pen and paper with me and take notes during monitoring, writing down Ss mistakes to later for error correction.

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

I will now look at my noted that I took during monitoring and provide feedback and error correction. I would try to encourage other students to correct each others mistakes before I do it. For if time exercise I will have a workbook exercise to hand them. We would also talk about what they think is an odd custom from their home country and why.
