Procedure (43-55 minutes)
I will make the lead-in by asking them about "Manisa" and "Bakırköy" which are the places in Turkey that are immediately associated with the famous mental institutions they have. In this short eliciting I will give them (elicit) the words "treatment" and "mental illness" and will elicit from the students different kinds of therapies, then I will show them some pictures of alternative therapies and will discuss about them shortly. Q: "When I say Manisa and Bakırkoy, what's the first thing that comes to your mind, what are these places famous for?" (mental institutions) Q: "Ok, so what kind of people are in the mental institutions?" (crazy-mentally ill) Q: "And what do we know about these institutions, how do they treat people there?" (Drugs, electroshock therapy) -So these are some traditional treatments we know, right? Can you think of other kinds of therapies for treatment? Alternative therapies maybe?" -Let's look at these pictures! There are different kinds of therapies here. Can you guess what kind of a therapy this can be?
I will teach some words from the listening that I think the Ss don't know the meaning of. (treatment, mental illness, temper, destroy, destruction, satisfying, to get rid of). treatment (n) /ˈtriːtmənt/ mental illness (n) /ˈmentl ˈɪlnəs / temper (n) /ˈtempər/ destroy (v) /dɪˈstrɔɪ/ destruction (n) /dɪˈstrʌkʃən/ satisfying (adj.) /ˈsætɪsfaɪɪŋ/ to get rid of (phrasal verb) /tə ɡet rɪd əv/ CCQs: treatment: 1-Do we have to be ill to get a treatment? 2-Do we feel good after the treatment? mental illness: 1-Do we feel good or bad when we have a mental illness? 2-Is it related with our stomach or mind? temper: 1-Do we become angry very easily? satisfying: 1-Do we feel happy when we're satisfied? to get rid of: 1-When we get rid of something do we still have it or not? 2-Do we want it anymore?
We will listen to a radio programme on destruction and laughter therapy and the Ss will answer the questions in exercise 3. Then they will check their answers together and I will give a W/C F/B.
Students will listen again answer T/F questions this time in exercise 4A. I will give them the answer key to check their answers and we will listen to the dialogue again for them to find what's wrong with the sentence. W/C F/B: Correct only the false ones.
They will discuss about which therapy is good and why. I will be monitoring for examples of good and bad language for delayed F/B.
I will write the notes I took when monitoring, on the board and will give O/C F/B.
