To provide gist listening practice using a text about the most dangerous things when you're driving.
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of driving.
Procedure (36-49 minutes)
I'll tack the picture of the context on the board and ask them * Where is he? * What is he doing? * Is he busy? * Is he drinking a cup of tea? etc. they'll be working in pairs for a few minutes to discuss it.
Before I hand them the material, I will regroup and ask them * what are the most dangerous things that you do when driving?* They will talk to their partner. (Think-pair-share) The students will be given a half-folded papers. I'll tell them to read the article and put them in order (number 1 is the most dangerous) with their partners. Then they will be asked *Do you(or your family) do any of things while driving a car?" Then they will listen to the audio to get the answers individually.
Students will keep working in their pair/group. They will put the sentences in the "correct" order. They will unfold the worksheet and then read the 8 questions. After they read the questions, they will listen to the audio one more time. They'll talk with their partners and check answers. When they're ready, we'll answer them all together. If a student answered one question and the others are agreed, ask them WHY? Finally, I'll write the answers on the board.
I assume, because of their level, that they know these words: simulator/ distraction/ distracted/attention. If not, I'll teach them by miming and explaining a little bit.
Here there are 7 statements. I'll put them on the walls. I'll ask everyone to stand up and check the statements with their friends and share their ideas. When they settle down, I'll ask them : * Should we listen to our favourite music? * Can I open a can of coke? * Can I talk on the phone?
