TP5a -- Adjectives of Feelings -- Valdes 6-11
To review and extend Ss' vocabulary of adjectives to describe feelings and to give practice in them.
To give Ss practice in listening for inference and in semi-controlled speaking.
Procedure (40-45 minutes)
Introduce context of the feelings that people feel during a football match. After setting context, have Ss discuss in pairs the emotions people can feel during a football match, trying to list 4. Monitor and take FB. Elicit happy, nervous, angry, bored, sad using pictures/drawings/miming, following ECDW framework to clarify MFP as needed.
Ss listen to infer emotional state of speakers. They work alone to match speaker with feeling. Repeat listening as needed, having Ss discuss in groups between each. Demo first. After 2 or 3 listenings as needed, have pairs compare answers, give W/C FB, and if Ss need help understanding "how we knew", i.e. how we inferred the answers from the audio, consider revisiting specific audio clips to find the clue (tone, situation, surrounding words, etc.)
Give Ss Ex. 2. First is done for them. Then have Ss peer-check. Take W/C FB and backchain difficult formulations to prepare Ss for following speaking exercise in which they ask peers questions.
Give Ss Feelings Bingo cards and have them mingle to ask peers questions re: their feelings (e.g., Are you excited for the World Cup?). The winner is the student who completes a full line - but verify with the people named on their card W/C before declaring winner! Monitor for delayed EC in next stage.
After Feelings Bingo take Ss FB on content, reporting their findings W/C -- e.g., who is happy in the mornings? who is excited for the world cup? etc. -- and then do delayed EC on key language items and formulations. If time, do second controlled exercise, or elicit synonyms of TL on WB.
