Procedure (32-40 minutes)
Introduce the lesson's topic and LO. Group them in pairs and have them ask and answer the following questions: What do you think is happening in the image? What emotions do their faces show? I give the next example: I think, for example, the girl was going to meet with her friend for te, but got afraid because it was dark, so she asked her younger brother to accompany her. The brother got stressed because he was running late to see his girlfriend CCQs: 1) Do you have to write? no 2) Do you have to speak? yes
1) Sharing my screen, I display a matching exercise in google slides that they will have to solve in teams. I elicit instructions and have them read column on the left, saying the funny letters is a pronunciation tip (elicit sound) and do the following CCQs: Do you have to write? Yes Is it an individual exercise? No 2) After time runs out, we do a group feedback on the answers: 1-a, 2-e, 3-c, 4-d, 5-b
1) After finishing the vocabulary activity stage, I ask students to ask and answer each other in breakout rooms: What situations make you blow hot and cold? I elicit a response: I sometimes blow hot and cold when I am paying taxes? After that, I send them to the rooms for a minute and a half (2 min top).
2) I bring them back and elicit one answer. Then I tell we will hear people answering similar questions, so (while sharing my screen) I send the link for the activity, and check everyone can see the exercise. I tell the students to quickly read the questions, and answer while we do the listening.
After doing the exercise, I ask them to check answers in groups (I monitor to see if audio needs to be played again) (I create new breakout rooms) 3) I do open feedback: a) speakers 5-9, b) speaker 6 and "8", c) speaker 3, d) speaker 4, e) speaker 8 and "3", f) speaker 2, g) speaker 1 and 10, h) speaker 7
1) I tell students we will hear 8 sentences taken from the previous exercise. 2) I share my screen and show them the form and send the form. 3) In pairs, I ask them to predict what do they think fills the sentences (I create new breakout rooms for that purpose).
4) After the listening, I have them peer check and monitor to see if I need to play again. 5) I do an open feedback group correcting only the ones that are wrong: a) feel embarrassed b) that stresses c) me completely d) find, quite funny e) that frightens me the most is f) really great g) absolutely detest h) you shouldn't laugh, can't stop myself
Tell students they will have to tell a moment in their life, in which they either felt embarrassed, stressed or happy
Based on the mistakes heard during the lesson, I either perform this stage, or not.
