Intermediate B1 level
To provide gist and scan reading practice using a text about Socialising in the context of Night Out
To provide clarification of Socialising in the context of Night Out
Procedure (39-58 minutes)
I'll write down a few phrases on the board and ask Ss to guess what we are going to talk about in this lesson. After eliciting, I'll ask them what they do to socialise and how they spend their weekends. Then Ss will do exercise 1. ticking the things that they sometimes do on a night out with their friends. They will cross out the ones they never do. Then I'll elicit the answers.
Ss will work in pairs to discuss the given questions using the phrases from the previous exercise. After that, I'm going to ask what they have found interesting or unusual about their partners.
Students will look at the photos and guess how they spend their nights out, where they are from, etc.
Ss will do jigsaw reading activity. They will be working in groups of three and each group will read and take notes about its own reading text. Then they will go and share their text with other groups. They will also ask about their own texts, too. Thus, each of them will know the three texts. Then in pairs, Ss will talk about the important things for each person in the text. I'll elicit the answers. They will answer the comprehension questions one by one. Ss will pick one card from me and try to explain the meanings of the vocabulary in exercise 5. Teacher will ask concept check questions to be sure of understanding.
This stage is the productive part of the lesson as the students are going to discuss certain communicative questions. They will be working in groups of three and discuss the question that they have chosen. Then they will share their ideas and then after reading the 'Fact! Going Out' Box, Ss will talk about the facts that they didn't know or are interesting for them, etc.
Teacher will ask Ss if everything is clear. Teacher will guide them when necessary. When Ss talk, as a teacher I won't correct every mistake so that Ss will free to talk which is our aim.
