Procedure (33-45 minutes)
To engage students in the topic i will show them pictures which they will describe. They will identify a woman sitting in the train, a carton of juice, a straw and an angry person. Those are words which they will use in the next stage. Instruction: Tell each other what you see in the pictures. You have 2 minutes. Task: 2 min in groups Feedback: max. 2 min
In this stage, students will recycle vocabulary used in the lead-in. I will share a Google Jamboard with the following words: woman, sitting, train, carton, blackcurrant juice, straw, angrily They will get creative and agree on a story. Instructions: Tell a story using the following words. You will work in groups for 4 minutes. Task: 4 min. Feedback: 2 min.
I will share a Google Form task to fill in gaps. Students will discover some expressions used to start and end a story, to return to the main subject of the story and to respond to a story: EXAMPLE: A funny thing ________ this morning. HAPPENED 1. So, ________, I was feeling a bit thirsty 2. Oh ________! 3. The woman was shouting at me angrily and I was so ________! 4. I had a bad ________ last year 5. You’re ________! 6. I was ________ scared! 7. So, then ________ happened? 8. So, it was all OK ________. Answer key: 1. anyway 2. no 3. embarrassed 4. experience 5. joking 6. really 7. what 8. in the end. This is a multiple choice task and students will work individually on it. Instructions: Complete the expressions. You have 3 minutes. Task: 3 min Pair check: 1 min (private message on chat box) Feedback: 2 min
Students will now tell real-life stories to each other. They will work in groups of 3 and will use expressions from the previous task. To make sure that every student gets to speak, they will ask each other the following questions: When did it happen? Where were you? What happened? What were you doing when it happened? How did you feel? What happened in the end? I will share a padlet with the expressions they discovered earlier. Students can take notes on it. Instructions: Ask each other the following questions and tell real-life stories. Try to use those expressions. You have 15 minutes. After every 5 minutes I will advise students to change turns. I will be monitoring the whole time and taking notes of good and wrong expressions. Task: 15 min Feedback: 5 min (I will nominate students to tell their peers stories)
I will provide feedback about what students did already well but also correct errors they did. I will elicit reformulation from students where needed. I will use Google Jamboard for this. If needed, I will drill words and whole sentences.
