Procedure (53-74 minutes)
T writes Apple Inc. on the board and asks sts to tell what products they are famous for. Then find out how many sts in the class own an Apple product. T asks sts to name the person who co-founded Apple and who is considered to be the father of the digital revolution and elicit Steve Jobs. Sts in pairs focus on the quiz about Steve Jobs and answer the 7 questions. Sts compare their answers with another pair. Then T plays the audio for sts to listen and check their answers.
T shows 4 photos and sts look at the photos and guess the connection between each of the things, people or places and Steve Jobs. T elicits ideas from sts but she doesnt tell them if they are right or wrong yet. Sts read 5 short paragraphs to find out the connection between the photos and Steve Jobs. T elicits answers.
T gives sts a chance to talk about their own icons. First, sts are given few minutes to write a name of person, thing or place in as many of the seven categories as possible and then in pairs they will talk about their own icons (who they are, what they have done, and why they admire thgem, why they like the landmark / object, etc.) T monitors and helps sts with any vocabulary they need. In small groups of three, sts take it in turns to talk about the categories they have chosen.
Sts now decide and plan to talk about one of the categories, that in their groups all sts talked about.
Sts talk about the chosen topic to another group and they find out if they have any similarities. T walks around and takes notes. T gets some feedback.
From sts speaking, T writes some sentences on the board and corrects them with the sts. Then sts look back at the short reading paragraphs and complete some sentences with a relative clauses (who, which, where, whose). T go through the rules and explains in detail.
Sts in pairs again complete 12 sentences with a relative clauses. Check with another pair. T elicits answers.
Sts listen to a song called Greates Love of All by Whitney Houston who is an icon and complete the missing words in the lyrics. Sts listen to the song two times. T elicits answers
