Materials

No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide gist, scan and detailed reading practice using a text about Dolphins in the context of animals
  • To provide clarification and practice of adjectives in the context of places that animals live

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a Conversation in the context of animal

Procedure

Lead in (2-3 minutes) • To raise interest in the topic

I will show students some pictures about places that animals. I will also show them a short video about dolphins.

Pre-reading (7-10 minutes) • To prepare students for the text

I will teach the new words and adjectives that students may not know about animals and places that they live (polluted, clean, dangerous, beautiful, and ugly). I will use pictures for teaching the words and for each adjective students will be given an opposite. If they had problem with the pronunciation of the new vocabularies we will have choral and individual repetition drills. Words will be written on the board next to pictures.

While-reading (5-6 minutes) • To practice gist reading and check comprehension

Students will be asked to skim the text to answer a general question from the text. I will ask students to check their answers in pais then I will ask one or two students to share their answers with the whole class. Then I will ask students to scan the text to answer detailed questions in which they should put adjectives in the blanks.

Post-reading • To develop fluency and produce language

I will ask students to talk about the picture that they are given (an animal) and use the adjectives they learned. They are asked to answer questions like what is your favourite animal? Where does it live? What is it like? What does it eat? I will ask CCQs to make sure they understood what should they do.
