TP6b- CCTV in Schools
To provide fluency speaking practice in a roleplay task
To provide Ss with a reading to give them ideas for the speaking task
Procedure (38-49 minutes)
Show the pics,ask follow-up questions and elicit /pre-teach relevant vocab.
Put pic 3 on w/b. Next to it, write the topic of the article "CCTVs in schools?". Ask them what they think the article is about. Ss think individually for half a minute and then in pairs brainstorm and come up with one idea.Provide safe space for Ss. W/c FB.
Give Ss HO1 .Ss read the article . W/c F/B. Put the CCTV pic in the center of the board. Elicit what possible decision making groups the article entails( teachers,parents,children,local government) and put them in a mind map around the picture.
Have Ss work in 4 groups. They are to prepare a list of reasons for and against the article . Give clear instructions before they start. ICQs follow. Remind(though perfunctorily) the Ss of the previously F/L on advantages and disadvantages, but they don't necessarily have to use it since it's a free speaking activity. Remember to give Ss a safe and relaxing space to work. At the same time, monitor and help if necessary. As regards F/B, a representative from each group presents their arguments.
Make note of the Ss' errors while they are presenting their arguments. Write some errors on the w/b and have ss correct them. Drill if necessary. Try to keep error correction as S-centered as possible.
