Procedure (53-70 minutes)
The lesson starts with a short elicitation activity to provide example and content of the poster. A teacher shows a poster-report one of the students from the last year. The teacher discusses the structure of the poster: the organization, the illustration, the structure, the strong and weak parts of the poster by asking guided questions, like: What do you see? What is it about? How do you know? What is the structure/ organization of this poster? What do you like about this poster/ What student could do better?
A teacher recycles the Past Simple tense with students by highlighting the verbs in the student's poster. A teacher reminds students that the technology item that students chose was invented in the past as well. Then the teacher shows the check-list that students need to take into consideration while they are going to write their poster. The teacher hangs the checklist on display, for students' independent work.
Students work in pairs, small groups or independently- depends on students choice. They create a poster.
In the last session, SS first, will check their work using a check-list and then do a group activity of asking and giving recommendation using the check-list and the posters they have made.
