TP2 - LP - Jon Aponte
The students will be able to practice and produce collocations using the words "big" and "great."
To provide fluency speaking practice using the collocations "big" and "great."
Procedure (26-42 minutes)
The T will ask the Ss to think about something great that has happened to them and share it via the chat box.
The T will briefly explain what collocations are to the Ss using his powerpoint slide presentation. T will use CCQs to discern if the Ss understand what collocations are. The T will ask the Ss to provide him with an example of a formal way of greeting someone at the beginning of the day and at night. "Good morning" and "Good evening."
The T will show the Ss a slide/worksheet of a telephone conversation. The Ss will be asked to choose the better sounding word for each sentence. Students will work in pairs and check answers in breakout rooms. T will monitor Ss in the breakout rooms. T will elicit answers after they are complete.
The T will show the MFP slides showing what the two words are with examples. The T will ask the Ss where these two words are positioned in the example sentences on the slides. The T will highlight the CCQs and ask the Ss to answer those questions via the chat.
The T will introduce a multiple choice controlled activity where Ss must choose the unnatural sounding collocation out of the group. Ss will work individually for this exercise. Ss will then check answers in groups in the breakout rooms. The T will elicit feedback from the Ss concerning the answers to the controlled practice. The T will ask Ss to come up with a collocation for some of the answers to the worksheet, e.g. "a great loser" is actually "a sore loser."
The T informs the Ss they will have a free practice activity where they will practice their productive (speaking) skills. The T will show the four questions, each using a collocation with the words "big" and "great". The T will send the link to the questions via chat. Ss will have a moment to read the questions. The T will then send Ss to breakout rooms to discuss the questions, while he monitors.
The T will elicit feedback and answers from the Ss concerning the questions in the free practice activity. The T will correct language feedback and gauge the extent of the Ss comprehension on collocations. The T will close the lesson with a few brief remarks.
